Well, that makes on of us auto drafting then.

My daughter is in a play that evening so my team will be on autodraft.

un (Frank) believable... in a cruel twist I won't be able to attend my own draft. That makes, I think, two consecutive years now.

btw, if anybody is interested in a trade, let me know. I'm fairly happy, but would consider trading for a solid pitcher.

For autodrafting half of the draft I didn't get overly hosed. I do have a couple of trade offers on the table right away though.

Bernie's Moetz, possibly my wittiest and, concurrently, most misunderstood team name ever.

I'm the Emanskis, my dad is Cardinal Express. He used to be on the board, but doesn't post anymore.

I feel pretty good about my team. Sorry I had to turn down your trade Ditka. I really wanted Hosmer and I've already got a 3B in Evan Longoria. I will look at your roster and see if we can work soemthing out.

No big deal. I just have a lot of Birds and a lot of 1st baseman so I'm trying to work something out. The only thing 'off the market' is Wayno. I know his probably on an innings/pitch count this year, but I love the dude.

The only thing I can think of is that it's a reference to Bernie Madoff and a clever homophone of Mets. I don't know what Moetz is a reference to other than sounding like Mets though.

Am I way off?

It is a reference to Bernie Madoff and his involvement in the downfall of the Mets, and concurrently a reference to another (in)famous NY'er (depending on how you look at it)--Bernie Goetz. Just as Bernie Madoff shot many peoples lives to hell, including Mets fans who are indirectly suffering because of Fred Wilpon's involvement with him, Bernie Goetz shot some hoods to hell for trying to mug him in the subway. Hence the combination.

It was actually wittier in my head. I'm sure by mid-April I'll grow to hate the team name.

ahh, that is pretty clever. Goetz's incident was before I was born though, so I had to google him lol.

The reigning champ is out to a 9.5 game lead. Tom Emanski reigns supreme!
