    pointy the sim starts with 1885, which is the version of old hoss you had last time.

    dunno if that makes you want to change your pick, or if inty would allow it, but thought i would be a helpful narc for once.

    Quick thoughts on everyone's Top Twos

    Pointy - Barry Bonds, Ty Cobb

    I could maybe quibble a bit with Bonds but a) it worked last season b) it keeps you on brand and c) if you wanted Bonds, you pretty much had to take him there. Love the value of the Cobb pick - he could have one significantly earlier.

    Grade: [​IMG]

    Amazings - Babe Ruth, Tom Seaver

    For my money, Ruth is one of the two best bats in the game, so great pick there. Think Seaver might have been a touch early, but if your plan is to compete and yet hate baseball, you probably want to take guys a touch early ... so nice job being on brand?

    Grade: [​IMG]

    Rx: Silver King, Joe Dimaggio

    King obviously proved his value last season, great pick. Dimaggio did well for you last year but I Think there was a better value pick for the same position on the board (Ty Cobb). Still, two great pieces to start with.

    Grade: [​IMG]

    tom - Pedro Martinez, Nap Lajoie

    For my money, you get the best starting pitcher and the best second baseman in the game. After the pilots missed the playoff last year ... could this be the start of you coming back from the dead?

    Grade: [​IMG]

    Tunes: Sandy Koufax, Willie Mays

    Based on performance in the sim, Koufax went a little early, but so what - he's your guy! Mays - good pick where you got him. Let's see if you can Free Fall into the Playoffs.

    Grade: [​IMG]

    afs1983: Ronald Acuna Jr, Hank Aaron.

    Love these picks. I hope you continue the trend all the way through the draft. Though, might I suggest with the new "face of the franchise" a rebrand? Instead of The Lawfirm of Hornsby & Alarmo ... Acuna Matata!

    Grade: [​IMG]

    Lloyd: Addie Joss, Ted Williams

    Hopefully, Juliet can figure out who Joss is this season. And, Teddy is top five for hitters in the game, plus a WWII vet.

    Grade: [​IMG]

    heels: Mickey Mantle, Honus Wagner

    You went with your guy in the first round, can't fault you there. And to get one of the top shortstops when that position will have some scarcity later is a good call. So far overall, I like it, but I don't love it.

    Grade: [​IMG]

    Cubbie: Greg Maddux, Ernie Banks

    One of the five best starters plus your guy, staying on brand? I love it.

    Grade: [​IMG]

    asw: Rogers Hornsby, Bob Gibson

    Building through starting pitching is pretty much always a great idea, and the potential for angering tom with a great season from Gibson is delicious.

    Grade: [​IMG]

    Wang: Rogers Hornsby, Alex Rodriguez.

    Second Base might have less value later on, but I do think Lajoie > Hornsby. And, you grabbed A-Rod before Pointy could - even if it's not maximum value, it is a win just to deny him his two-time series MVP.

    Grade: [​IMG]

    dp: Lou Gehrig, Walter Johnson

    I have Gehrig and Ruth 1-2 in some order in my best hitters in the sim, so amazing value to get him at #12. The downside to you drafting Johnson is your use of memes. We all hope he goes full Bob Gibson this year.

    I do like Acuña Matata. Although that song will probably be stuck in my head for a few hours now. :p
