Colonial League finale
In the league that I paid the least attention to I had my best finish, third in the Colonial Leauge. I probably could have challenged for the lead (two teams tied for first) had my overall first pick, Jose Reyes, not missed almost the entire year. I did poorly in stolen bases and runs scored and he certainly would have helped. My strategy was to draft quality starting pitching and two good closers (Bell and Cordero). I won the league in saves (I picked up Leo Nunez, too) and was able to trade some starters for Andre Ethier and Troy Tulowitzki. Both had great offensive second-halves, and helped me gain valuable hitting points.
