My second year of using my first pick on Utley. Kinda sucks having to root for the enemy but given that he is just one position player, it's manageable when I consider that he's simply a position player and can't alone be responsible for the Phil's success.

The kicker, this year I also felt I had to take Cole Hamels and have since been completely unsuccessful at working a trade for him. How the hell do you root for a Philly pitcher when one of the specific stats you need is a Win?

My disdain for Phillies players is notorious among my friends, but during the draft I have to take the best player available.

Last year and twice this year that meant having to draft Rollins within the first 15 picks. Whenever I wind up with Phillies, I immediately look to trade them. I try for Mets first, but it doesn't always happen. In one of my two leagues, I am trying to trade Rollins for Reyes straight up - the other owner is a Phillies fan. In the other, I just traded Rollins and Lidge for Hanley.

So my advice is trade Cole :)

Believe me, I have tried.

I like that trade for Hanley R.

The only rule I have in a fantasy draft is...Dont pick players from the NL East/AFC East (plus the Giants and Yankees ofcourse).

And I have been to the championship game 4 times in 2 years (in 12 team highly competitive leagues) and won 2 of them (both football =/)

NO NL EAST PERIOD.

I can't pass on the best player available. Especially when it's at a needed position and at a time I am looking for someone at set position.

Of course, I am now paying the price. I had such mixed emotions when Hamels got the loss the other day! Sickening!!!!!!
