Fantasy Baseball Analysis Draft: Rosters

by KFFL Staff on February 22, 2011 @ 09:53:00 PDT

 


St. Louis Cardinals 1B Albert Pujols
Still king of the hill

KFFL's Fantasy Baseball Analysis Draft (K-BAD) gives you the mindset of each expert, pick by pick. There are always a number of directions in which to go or philosophies to utilize. Our mission is to share what we were thinking at the time of a selection.

This is not a "mock" league, either. This is a real fantasy baseball league that will be played out over the course of the 2011 season, so everyone involved is drafting with the sole purpose of putting together the best possible team. Around here, bragging rights are everything, so you can be sure each participant will be putting his best foot forward.

Like a pick? Hate a pick? Loving the way a certain team is rounding out, or do you think a team is ready to be fed to the wolves? We encourage you to share your feedback at the bottom of each round and the rosters page.
