    Red Sox ReDraft WC Round: (4) Hollywood vs. (5) Mexico City

    Over the last six weeks, around 30 PSD posters participated in an MLB ReDraft in the Red Sox forum. There were 23 teams, and 10 made the postseason. The three division winners in each league receive a first-round bye as the wild card winners face off. To prevent homerism, we elected to use fake teams and cities rather than MLB franchises.

    This was the first ReDraft held in the Red Sox forum, and everyone who participated deserves credit for a job well done. We all worked hard on our teams, so please be courteous and put thought into your votes. Thanks in advance.

    This is a 5 game series with home-field advantage going to the Hollywood Don Vitos.

    this is another tough one....I am not the biggest fan of either rotations, both seem to have solid pens and solid line ups though. I just can't trust Oswalt anymore as a sure fire number 1. If he was, he'd be playing for a team right now. I am going to go with Mexico City because I like the depth of his rotation a little more, even though Darvish is an unknown....I like the 2-4 combo of Buehrle, Morrow, and Buchholz. Nice middle of the order too with Mauer, Cabrera, Granderson, Sanchez. Hollywood's line up is stacked in the middle too....I just felt overall Buehrle, Morrow, and Buchholz > Beachy, McCarthy, Pavano
    Perfect combos, Ghost bang out condos
    Jeff from Hamo, ex three bangos
    Bancos, stank hoes in plain clothes
    Change those, bang those, same old, same old

    This is Hollywood, I think they would sweep Mexico City.

    More than half of Mexico City's lineup were either on there rookie year last year, or didn't even play in the majors. As for their pitching, their ace didn't even play in the MLB last year, and there numbers 5 was in the minors. Personally, I'm not sure how they got into the playoffs.

    Yep, my entire team is too young. Young players never have success in the majors, not ever! Let's ignore the fact that these guys actually played well in limited action and that there are solid replacement players on my bench in case one of them struggles. I mean, they're young, that means failure no matter what!

    Darvish is an unknown. Nobody has even been able to see him pitch, he actually pitches in caves I think. We know absolutely nothing about him because there aren't multiple scouting reports or video available on him. He's probably not even a baseball player. We should make it seem like he's going to be a huge bust, yeah, that will probably work. Also you're right, my 5th starter is going to really cost me in a 5 game series, we all know how crucial your 5th starter is in the playoffs.

    Screw having a solid lineup with good defense and an awesome bullpen. No young guys or foreign players can have success. That's a scientific fact.

    I got Mex City in 5, very close though. I feel that they have an edge in rotation/pen and with Hollywood's rotation being suspect throughout the regular season trying to get innings I think that their bullpen would be poor come playoff time because of overwork during the regular season.

    Since Melo and AI are dead to VRP, It is intriguing who he will vote for

    So you went with lineup and bullpen yet decided to vote against Hollywood?

    Wow, ok, you must not know who ANY of the guys in Hollywood's pen are

    I am 100% sure that when he says bullpen he means ZomG Papelbon vs Nathan. Papelbon winzors

    I voted for Melo Havoc, I can put aside my differences for the sake of voting for the better team

    You're probably right. It's not like he made a complete fool out of himself by saying he voted by lineup and bullpen then voted against the one who arguably has the better categories by which he based his voting. (no offense brocho )
