  5. Baseball question...

    Grip has alot to do with the pitch, four fingers, two fingers, seam, knuckle etc. You can also watch the release, wrist flick is tell-tale of a curve or slider. Finally, the movement, speed and location are the final clues.
  6. I need a math expert please

    Really? The rarest type eh? Guess I lucked out getting two boys.
  7. Just finished an auction

    It's tough to budget when the auction doesn't start out the way that you want. Although, SA and Benson were probably inflated fatter than you'd like, it was likely a necessary inflation to make sure that you could field a decent duo. Either way, you managed to get a solid RB corps together for about half the cap. Given that LT went for over 60%, getting your whole backfield, and a solid one at that, was solid. Smith for 21 was a great deal. I have him at about 25-30 but again the RB spending likely resulted in that depression. Either way, solid value. Cutler for $1, can't beat that. He likely goes for 3-8 in most auctions. Edwards and Clayton are hanging out in the 5-12 range for me, great deal to nab them at $3 each. KW2 is an absolute steal at $2. I don't like taking Brady for $13 but given the QBs that went around him, it is probably justified. Either way, solid auction, kudos for the post.
  8. I never liked the "stock up on RBs and work a trade later". Savvy owners will exploit your obvious weakness at WR and force you to overpay for a WR. In order of preference, Ward, Edwards, Reggie Brown, Plax, Coles, Santana Moss, Chambers, Galloway.
  9. Poker Hand for Discussion

    When you raise post-flop and get reraised for the minimum, that should have raised warning flags. With the second nut flush draw, I can't fault you for pushing but you had to know at that point, you were behind.
  10. Two more in the family

    Our twins were born last night. Two boys. Oldest - Derrick James Ford 6 lb 3 oz 18.5" long born at 5:24 pm Youngest - Shane Michael Ford 6 lb 15 oz 19.4" long born at 5:45 pm Mom is doing great and I am busy trying to keep up with my daughter (3) while they rest in the hospital. I appreciate all good vibes/advice sent our way.
  11. Two more in the family

    Yeah, no kidding, hard to believe the wife pushed out over 13 lbs of baby plus baggage... We were also told that it is odd for the younger twin to be larger than the older one.
  12. Two more in the family

    Originally thought so from the first ultrasound. Now they aren't so sure because their heads look different. Blood tests will prove either or.
  13. keeper draft strategy

    I wouldn't be all that upset if you had to take Lynch at 1.03. If that happens, I'd try to work a trade-down deal with someone desperate to get BJax and nab a WR or a pair of picks. Pick up Bowe or Jarrett or even Meachem if you are a gambling man with said picks. Done deal. It's tough to speculate further without more info. But seeing that your league is 2 WR start only and you have TO, Fitz and Jennings, I would be focussing on RB and hoping that Lynch falls to you.
  14. Maybe it's just my opinion but I look at Lynch at 3.03 as a reach with solid WR options (young no less) available. I think that you are better off going stud WR here and thinking about a value RB pick later if you are convinced that RB flex is the way to go. A larger list of available RBs would be beneficial. Has Marion Barber gone? T Jones? Deuce McAllister?
  15. I probably go WR. I'm assuming that you are probably 3.02 or 3.03 (26th or 27th overall) so guys like Larry Fitzgerald or Reggie Wayne are good pickups here.
  16. Football Trivia

    I'd be curious to know the exact scoring of that play. Did he get credit for both a passing TD and rec TD?
  17. Monday the 9th

    Mrs. Tford will be induced on Monday. As some of you may know, we are having twins. So far the doc says that everything should be fairly routine but I am a nervous wreck and the wife is praying to avoid a possible C-section. Any good vibes you'd be willing to send, my family would be willing to receive. Here's to hoping for the best. (Happy 4th all you Americans)
  18. Which WR's would you cut?

    You could always trade a couple of them to FBJ. You're always saying how he's such a sucker.
  19. Auction Draft

    Way to difficult to say with an auction. Generally, I don't go with a top tier RB stud as they usually go for about $10-$20 more than I've budgeted for a RB1. I like to try to grab two tier 2 RBs or 1 tier 2 RB and 2 tier 3 RBs and drop money on a stud WR. But it is impossible for me to speculate because I don't know anything about the spending habits for your fellow owners. Without any further info, I'd say try to make a budget and stick to the plan. If LT falls within your plan, get him. If he doesn't, there are alot of solid options other than LT to anchor your team at RB.
  20. Why Favre in the 8th round? Maybe it's just me, and I don't know who was available but I might have tried to go WR or TE there. Perhaps, you could have nailed down someone better than Bruce as your bye week filler. KW2 is solid at TE and I don't know if much improvement could have been made. Tough to say without being in the draft and knowing who was available.
  21. What's in a Name?

    Would be a cool story, but would be untrue. Oddly enough, when I play poker online, my name is tford or tjford or some variate otherwise, I get alot of people asking me if I am TJ Ford of the Toronto Raptors when I say I am from Canada.
  22. What's in a Name?

    People don't know what acid is in my hometown and by the reference, you are assuming that I am older than I really am. Honestly, the story I was told is that they stole the name for a guy off off a TV show; General Hospital I believe. Found the link;
  23. What's in a Name?

    First name is Tryston. The weird spelling gets it butchered all the time so I go by TJ or T-Ford alot.
