Craig Calcaterra posted earlier today about the decrease in Raul Ibanez’s bat speed. DC Matt and I passed on Ibanez in our fantasy draft (we’re defending champions, you know?). And we did so with emphasis. In fact, in our pre-draft discussions, we marked Raul as someone from which to stay away at all costs.*
On the other hand, I advocated furiously for picking Lance Berkman as “The Centrist Fielder’s” first baseman. My bad.
