I had Holden Dickson on my shortlist. 10 power and can play a little 3B/2B. Interesting player.

If you had told me I'd get a player like Sergio Valentin with my second rounder I might have openly mocked you.
Crazy, right? When I first viewed this class I was thinking it was a nice step down from last year. I definitely didn't expect to be picking between players I liked in the 70s. I figured it would be more taking the best of a bad bunch.

Yeah, I'm sure I reached but I know he wasn't falling to 119. I think he could fill in at short in a pinch too. At the very least, he's a potential right-handed portion of a platoon at 3B, or a good utility backup with the ability to play a mean 3rd, and fill in at short, second, left, and right in a pinch. Or, maybe he becomes the AAA career HR king?

So much for drafting pitching prospects. Two outfielders, a third baseman, a - I think - second baseman and a reliever.

Ya. I look at my team and I’m like “I need MRs and SPs”. Then I draft infielders.

Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.

Not as nice as all that. I'd be leading my division by 8 games if not for the reason for the draft picks, probably.

Two outfielders, a utility guy and a starter for me, so I’m in the same boat. I came in wanting pitchers myself. I’m loaded with outfield prospects already too. Someone is playing in the infield for sure haha

Happy to get o'bryan. I've been drafting super versatile players for a while now and don't really have a 1b of the future type. Maybe he can be the guy as a third round value pick.

I haven't been getting Slack notifications on the draft. Usually do. Anyone getting them? I've missed a couple picks. Luckily I've at least had a few people on my list.

My plan, at this point, pretty much amounts to 'Take all the Pitchers'...

Got it this time around. App was on my other league so maybe that was it. Pretty sure I've gotten notifications from other leagues while set on another one so who knows.

I'll probably have to soon. I don't forsee taking many guys with 2 or 3 MOV. Even I have standards.

Ah, yes. The joys of drafting without checking in-game first. Should I pay my 5th rounder $2.2M to maybe sign? He is "Impossible" after-all. I mean, my 2nd rounder only wants $180k so I should have plenty of budget left for him, right? Oh well. Better luck next year.

After a few good rounds, this draft is drying up pretty fast. I'm starting to have to squint really hard to find future BBA players.

Yeah, pickings are slim. Should fly through rest of draft pretty quickly at this point.
