Erickson and I interview Albert Pujols on Sirius XM's RotoWire Fantasy Sports Today. (11 am to 2 pm M-F on Sirius 125, XM 241)

My 12-Team NFBC RotoWire Online Championship Team
I drafted out of the 11-hole for the "Beat Chris Liss" league. I had done a fair amount of research on optimal roster construction from that slot, and I decided I'd go hitter in the first round, three pitchers in 2-4 and then hitting for the next 10 rounds or so before filling in with upside pitchers late.
