    I know, and the 'best available' is usually some trash overrated player that I don't like.

    Or the computer drafts a pitcher when you already have a dozen of them and really need something else.

    The league was renewed, honestly hadn't even been paying much attention to fantasy baseball or the draft order. I need to haha.
    2 slots open.

    I think that most of the league last year was inactive, anyway. Do we want to use this opportunity to downsize a bit?

    Thanks for the invite. I've never really been keen on Fantasy leagues. I just typically follow my own team as well as their closest rivals.

    appreciate the invite as well, but i had to quit fantasy baseball a few years ago because i wasn't keeping up with my team and basically letting my league down, which i'm pretty sure would happen again. i only do football now, it's just a lot easier to stay on top of.

    Scoring is based on how many of each in the category, not points based, haha. Head-to-head.

    I'm really happy with my team, though there were some players I wanted who were taken by heels multiple times.

    If heels wanted them then you are probably better off without them.

    Pretty happy with my team too. Got 3 Mets including Thor, got Buxton who will have a breakout year and prevented the Yankees fans here from getting Stanton!

    I'm not sure who Athletics is, but he sniped David Price from me, and cubby sniped Carrasco. Both the pick right in front of me.

    Other than that, good. Altuve, Freddie, and Judge should be a good core. Yoenis should be a huge bounce-back candidate, and grabbed a couple of young bats I believe in with Eddie Rosario and Bradley Zimmer. Jose Martinez is six foot seven and can swing a bat - hoping he's this year's Judge.

    Pitching is my weak spot. Was hoping for Carrasco, got Severino. Grienke is good if healthy, and got a couple of good young arms. Pulling hard for Carsten Charles to deliver some Bartoloesque magic in the Bronx, now that he's fat again. At least I hope he's fat again.

    Anyone who wants to deal, I'm open. Especially the guy who owns Harper.
