Pujols poised for worst career season

Sorry everybody. But it looks like Albert Pujols is going to have a terrible year. I hate to say it. But I don't think there is any other reasonable conclusion.

Why? Because for five years I have tried to draft him in fantasy baseball, and this season i actually got him. So that has to be a sure sign of disaster, right?

I got caught up with work stuff and wasn't able to attend the draft for our league. But I pre-ranked players and I am pretty happy with what I got even thought the computer drafted things much differently than I would have live. After I go for the big numbers guy at the top to carry my offense, i work on trying to stock positions where productive players aren't as deep... shortstop, second, catcher... I usually try to snag a couple of stud pitchers early, but for the most part I try to save the meat of my pitching selections at least the middle rounds.

Anyway, here is what I got: 

C Russel Martin (LAD)

1B Albert Pujols (STL)

2B Alexi Ramirez (CWS)

3B Alex Rodriguez (NYY) ... somehow I scored him in the sixth round.

SS Miguel Tejada (HOU)

OF Carlos Beltran (NYM) ... computer picked him in second round

OF Carl Crawford (TB)

OF Cory Hart (MIL)

Bench:

Adam Dunn (Was)

Mike Aviles (KC)

Vernon Wells (TOR)

Lastings Milledge (WAS)

Torii Hunter (LAA)

Jayson Worth (PHI)

Pitchers:

C.C. Sabathia (NYY)

Tim Lincecum (SF) ... computer took him in the third round

John Lackey (LAA)

Scott Kazmir (TB)

Francisco Liriano (MIN)

Closers:

Jose Valverde (HOU)

Matt Capps (PIT)
