I’m #1…… Kind Of

The first of many posts this year from 2014 Fantasy Champion and back to back #1 overall pick king, Allan. Thanks for reading and commenting!

 


 

Well here we go again, back at it for another fantastic season of fantasy baseball. Although last year didn’t end exactly how I intended, losing in the Championship game to Willisbetheyear. The fantasy God’s took a vote and have spoken!!! I have EARNED the right to be this year’s #1 overall pick in the upcoming fantasy draft. I would much rather have won the championship and been picking #6 or #7, but what are you gonna do?

I am a little excited about having this opportunity to pick #1, because it gives me a chance to lock down one of the best players in baseball. Then again I won’t be picking again until #20. That worries me a little bit. These are the types of thing that will be running through my mind up until draft day. Who will I take #1? Who will be left at #20? Will I be sober enough to make the right decisions by the time my second pick comes back around? You know, those types of things. So I am nervous and excited at the same time.

I am extra excited though, because I get a chance to meet up with some of the guys at a spring training game earlier that day before the draft. It’s always a fun time. We get a chance to talk about fantasy strategies, life, the game of baseball, how much we hate each other’s team and my absolute favorite part, drinking beer with some buddies. Yea I may sound like a drunk, but hell, I’m okay with that. I like beer and so do you. I just pray to God that it isn’t hot out that day especially with all of this nice weather we have been having. Because I sweat like a sinner in church and I like to look good for the ladies.

I have told a few of the guys already that I plan on taking Jose Altuve with the #1 pick in the draft. He is the best 2nd baseman in the game and also one of the best players in the game as well. I know I tend to lie about who I am taking, alot. But this year I plan to be honest and fair.Why not take the reigning AL MVP and World Series Champion? He hits for high average, his power numbers have increased over the last 2 years, he steals a lot of bags and plays in the best young lineup in baseball. Picking at #1 you want the best player in the game, but then again why not have only one of the best players, but a player who plays a position of value. 2nd base is tough to find elite play at. So that’s it…..He’s my pick…..Maybe. lol

Well that’s about all I have at the moment. So Good luck to nobody but me and see you guys at the park/draft.
