    I like the Twats pitching too much to not vote for them.

    But this would be a good competition value wise.

    they also have a lot of good value offensive players that nobody knows enough about.

    Neither team impresses to make this a classic. Round 2?

    J-Bay has a good lineup, but then two minor leaguers kills him. Timmy can dominate the show. Going with Timmy love me or hate me.

    Well, when you have a snake draft at the end of the season, what can you expect?

    Every team kind of sucks.

    Imagine what the talent would be like in the MLB if 30 teams tried competing. That's what we have here.

    It's a crock to point out that none of Jamaica's pitchers are remotely healthy and wouldn't last the season? I didn't realize pointing out the flaws in opposing teams was considered a faux pas. Especially when Pettite (75 innings) and Santana (117 in 2012) can't really be expected to make an impact in October at this point in their careers.

    And if you want to argue post season effectiveness then let's not forget that Marcum and Latos were pretty brutal.

    I'm not surprised by the voting but what I am surprised by is how everybody is just ignoring the fact that Jamaica's entire pitching staff are virtually all coming off major injuries in 2012. If you want to argue Stras is an injury risk go for it, but he was healthy for 2012, unlike De La Rosa (TJ) or Santana or Marcum or Pettite who all missed significant time due to injury.

    Jamaica's lineup is good, but it's not good enough to overcome 4 major injuries like that.

    Edit: Congrats to Jamaica on putting together a quality squad.

    Point is Twitch, people aren't as dumb as you think. Saying other than Bautista that "the rest of the lineup is no threat", is foolish. Your second best hitter is Aaron Hill. In these type of things, you can twist numbers in 100 different directions, we both know that, so I'm not going to get into that discussion, but you said "The lineup is overrated, and littered with players with little to no experience" when you have Matt Carpenter, Lorenzo Cain, Nolan Reimold, Logan Morrison, Travis D'Arnaud and Andrelton Simmons, which is so beyond hypocritical it's hilarious. And people aren't stupid, they saw it just like I did.

    I voted for Jamaica, and it was a tough decision.
    I liked their offense more. Their starting pitchers were not as good, but SP isn't a huge deal in the playoffs.
    Jamaica in 7.

    I'm not sure I'd agree that Morrison (1146 AB), Cain (425 AB), or Reimold (808 AB) aren't that experienced. But to each his own. They're not vets, but I wouldn't call them rookies either.

    It's not about people being stupid or not, VRP. It's about people coming in with a preconceived notion. If you look at the redraft forum people were saying you'd win halfway through. Which is fine. But I was asking Uggla to point out specifically where I was wrong, as opposed to just saying he doesn't like the fact that a write up by our team shows us as being better, unlike every other team in every past redraft who has done the same.

    I don't treat people like they're stupid. I'm raising legitimate questions here. A couple people said they didn't like the write up - fantastic. Instead of saying that, they could point out where they disagreed. Disliking the tone is one thing. I mean, as soon as I saw the injuries I just had to have some fun with the first few paragraphs, knowing full well how people were going to vote and that it wouldn't change a thing.

    Now, disagreeing with the facts, be it that your rotation threw a grand total of 525 innings last season from the top 4 guys, is a different story altogether. There's a big difference between that, and say, our healthy top 4 which threw 756 innings. That's why I think it's a legitimate question as to which of your guys would be healthy going into next year, especially the playoffs. We know Santana is injured, we know guys like De La Rosa won't be as good coming off TJ, Pettite is at a stage where he's probably not a solid be for significantly more than 100+ innings (the year he retired he threw 129). I've watched Marcum most of his career, I know he's got all these arm problems and he rarely goes deep into the season (and the one year he did, he got rocked in the playoffs cause he was dead tired). Those are 3 critical guys you're relying on for the playoffs who are just massive question marks, and it just seems like nobody has pointed that out.

    Anyways, I just thought I'd clear up what I meant.

    Edit: And I'll stop here, so again, congrats.

    The fact that you didn't say anything about why your team should win but instead why his team should lose is what I thought was bs. Its fine to state your opinion and bash his team but why don't you at least tell us why your team is so good?

    That's a fair point. I thought I did mention the superiority in the pen (closing experience, depth of the pen, lefty/righty matchups and guys capable of going multiple innings) as well as the fact the rotation was more dominant. Probably could have used more stats to explain it. I skimmed over the lineup which I shouldn't have done.

    Thank you.
