I'm still waiting for the Gio-as-Thor picture. He looked sharp last night.
Yeah, I'll admit it...I'm sucked in. I laugh at the WBC when it's not on, but the Muts suck and and I need something to root for since the Jets are letting all my favorite fat guys walk and the Knicks are never beating the Heat in the playoffs.
I'd say Gio is Thor, Giancarlo is the Hulk, Braun is Ironman and Tricky Dickey is the Black Widow.

Had my fantasy draft yesterday. One of my favorite days of the year. 6-hour live draft at my Dads house (Northeast Ohio). Sportswriters fly in from Houston, Denver, Tallahassee, D.C. and two drive in from Pittsburgh to make it.
18 teams, $158 buy-in. Winner typically cashes ~$700, I placed second last year for about $550. This is the league's 25th year, longer than I've been alive. All-around points league, no silly roto categories or head to head formats. Best team all year wins.
I was very pleased with my draft. My roster is as such:
C- M. Montero 1B- B. Butler 2B- J. Altuve 3B- M. Prado SS- B. Zobrist OF- A. Jackson OF- C. Beltran OF- A. Pagan DH- P. Konerko
BN- M. Izturis BN- C. Ross BN- D. Stubbs BN- A. Rodriguez (DL) BN- A. Romine (M)
SP- S. Strasburg SP- Z. Greinke SP- A. Sanchez SP- A. Ogando SP- A. Griffin CL- G. Perkins

Yay Vernon Wells! One of the worst contracts of all time with some of the least productivity. LAA better eat some of this contract and supposedly he had a lot of good AB's over Spring Training. First time in a long time where the Yankees have some serious rebuilding to do and the thought of the 2014 free-agency market will haunt my dreams. I do like Chen Ming Wang signing, keep him in the minors and if he pitches well and comes up if we have a starter hurt I think it works out fine.
I missed real baseball. Except we in Boston have to wait until Friday to get real baseball. Sure three games against the Yankees will count in the standings, and surprisingly at 1-2 for Boston - but it might as well be Spring Training with that shell of a Yankees roster.
