    I had that thought as I was posting that, because I should never underestimate certain players (*cough* @Point Given *cough*) desire to inflict pain upon the other GMs.

    This one actually wasn't on purpose unlike the Milwaukee Bucks which totally was. Didn't realize the Rangers were so bad.

    So just to wrap up this garbage Rangers round, I very much considered Julio Franco and Frank Howard, just to add some character to my team. But since I don't want to get caught without a reliever, I'm going off the board and taking Jeff Zimmerman, 2001.

    Still @DarthTunick in the Braves round.

    Amazing.
