– Almost. The Fightn’ Fidels not only have the two most powerful CG/SHO pitchers in the league on their staff (C. Lee, R. Halladay), but they are also returning a slew of talented young players who were injured for the most part of the 2010 season (K. Morales, D. Pedroia, A. Bailey). Though their R.M.A. team has some talented pieces, they are all a few seasons away, so in order for the Fidels to repeat again they have to hope for another strong season from their veteran core and a couple of good mid-season trades/pick ups to solidify their bench positions.
2. Who are the real Hebrew Nationals?
– Over the first month into the 2010 season the Nationals were competing for last place, but by the end of the season were able to make some beneficial moves that allowed them to move back into 5th place. The answer is obvious here. Justin W is one of the premier owners in the league, and proved last year that he could do what he needed to get done in case a disaster struck. The beginning of the 2010 season for the Nationals was a fluke, and I expect them vying for a trophy in the 2011 campaign.
3. Will certain owners increase their league awareness/roster management activity in order to keep pace with the rest of the league?
– Yes. These managers have been told that if they cannot handle the work load of being a Ramrod owner that they need to find a Co-manager to actively run the day to day roster management, or they will be assigned one by the league; and also that their participation on this blog is not mandatory, but strongly recommended.
4. What team is going to be the surprise squad of the year?
– The Virtuous Pagans (formally the Seasoned Veterans) were in the middle of the pack last season until a string of injuries decelerated the progress the team was making. After having an excellent R.M.A. draft, the Pagans have set them selves up for more of the same prospect for prime style trades that allowed them to flourish in the early part of the 2010 season. I would not be surprised to see an emptied R.M.A. squad for a much improved starting lineup by the All-Star break. I could see a 5th or 6th place finish here.
5. Who is the most important player to their Ramrod team?
– It is a tie. The Fightn’ Fidels C. Lee and R. Halladay. The fact is they can almost guarantee to finish 1st in CG’s and SHO’s, and that gives the Fightn’ Fidels a 17-20 point advantage in the standings. They are the foundation of the Fidels rotation, and two of the main reasons why they have won three straight Ramrod Baseball Gold Medals.
