Let me start by saying...I'm as big a Phillies fan as you will find . With that said, our savior Charlie Manuel dropped the ball. As NL manager he should do his best to field a team that will give NL home field for the playoffs. I'm sure R.Howard is the sexy name and Pujols is a lock but to keep J. Votto of this team is a crime! His numbers should have him there. When it counts i would rather have Votto than Howard with chance to win a game late. And Matt Capps as Nationals representative instead of Strasberg ?! REALLY ! Lets see what happens

I have done a bit of research and have made quite a discovery ! I saw alot of debates on who and where to take 2B in fantasy drafts.

When it comes to Fantasy , pitching is usually as simple as taking the best available player .That is about the only strategy that applies

The time is here and i'm gonna give hope to guys who didnt do their homework,if i'm not being to subtle!
There are many potential sleepers out there and if you get one...congratulations. If you dont want to count on a
'sleeper" then you may want to take my non-expert opinion on some middle round talent that you can get on the cheap.
I've done a good amount of research and hope that will give some insight to other fantasy players.
I would suggest to anyone in H2H format to get your infielders early ,especially,SS and 3B . If you want a TOP 5 1B you gotta do it in first 2-3 rounds but if you wait til 6th-9th round you can get guy like D . Lee , C. Pena or L . Berkman who are very serviceable.
At 2B its not so thin.... i had B. Zobrist targeted in 5th round and he was gone because he also has eligebility as OF , Zobrist and A . Hill will be gone by end of 5th round.However, the position is deep and there will be guys like R. Cano , B . Roberts , D . Uggla around in rounds 6 - 8. After that hope your ok with Polanco or Lopez. At SS the talent drops off fast ! After H . Ramirez...who for some reason dropped to me at 6th overall , you have J. Rollins and T . Tulowitzki in top tier and maybe J . Reyes but he went in middle of
6th. After that its Jeter and Y. Escobar...period! And they both will be in middle of pack in fantasy scoring.
At 3B.. i got the shaft ! I thought i could get Sandoval in the 5th but he got scooped in 4th round by the same guy who took E.Longaria in the 2nd round and then he took D. Wright in the 6th...i slept on some guys who i thought would be there and by the middle of 6th round ALL quality 3B were gone and i grabbed A. Ramirez in 8th out of desperation.Point is get them early even if you have to reach
because the position is weak.
Now , lets talk about OFs. This fantasy OF class is extremely deep. Most of the usual suspects were taken where they should have been but i was pleasantly shocked at players that were still on the board in middle rounds. For starters...i was able to get M . Kemp in 6th round (55th overall),i couldnt believe he was available! maybe im just hopeful,but,i think he will be TOP 5 OF this season.Regardless...hes a steal there. If your draft goes anything like it should there will be alot of talented OFs after 8th round.
i was able to get C . Crawford in 9th(86th) round , S . Victorino in 10th(95th) N . Cruz in 12th(115) , A . Soriano in 15th(146th)
and R. Ludwick in 19th(186th). I would take that OF all day !! Hopefully , this info will be helpful to someone out there. Get your infielders while you can or take your chances. I will talk about Pitchers shortly...but who knows what your gonna get. GL all
