Favorite Players, Favorite Teams

If you are participating in GAC2, please let me know who your favorite player (FP) is and who your favorite team (FT) is.

You might want to check out Sports Card Radio's checklist for the 2010 A&G set. This is as official as it gets right now. You don't want to select a player and not have them be part of the set.

FPs affect scoring for all participants. FTs only affects the participant who chose the team for themselves. FPs cannot be duplicated. If Beardy selects Nick Markakis for his FP, no one else can select Nick. First come, first served.

FTs can be duplicated. If two participants want to select the Nationals, that's fine.

I'll make the list here.

  17. Hmm, does picking Jeter actually work counterproductively? I don't know the scoring rules, but I understand there is a Yankee-based penalty. I suppose the deep question then is this: will pulling Jeters counteract the negative impact of pulling Yankees in general? Also, am I sabotaging myself by picking Jeter? Quite the Ponderous Predicament...

  22. as tempted as i am to claim 'tbd' as my favorite player (that dude shows up all over the checklist), i will instead select matt kemp.

    my favorite team (which coincidentally has the best record in the national league) is the los angeles dodgers.

    Player: Evan Longoria

  31. Wait, wait, wait, there was a deadline??

    I want in!!!
    Team: Braves
    Player Jason Heyward

  32. Hear ye, hear ye, my favorite team be the Oakland A's, and my favorite player these days is Adam Dunn, by a nose. It had been Tim Lincecum for the last four years or so, but he's looking a bit too Prince Valiant these days, and then there's the whole pot thing.

    I guess that's a combo oil filter and computer.
