Yeah, that's fair. I'm fine either way...but there's "more talent" when looking at players based on OPB than AVG. Same rules apply to everyone though, so it doesn't matter much to me.

I think OBP changes dynamic for some players that are low AVG but average OBP, but good power.
I kept Joey Gallo... you mean we didn't switch to OBP?!?

(Look at how I've done the past couple of years - I wouldn't put a lot of weight on who I draft when. )

Being a new player and on the clock after yankee, I'm not sure of the appropriate protocol here. I can see it going one of two ways.

Either we wait for yankee to resubmit the pick and the draft continues on as normal...

Or treat it like when the Vikings missed their pick and everyone rushed to get a pick in as quick as possible.

While I'm assuming the former is the way we do things, the latter sounds quite fun (until i make the same mistake later in the draft)

With Drafty provided annually by the commish, these mistakes are rare.

With Mr Tripper being a long-time veteran of this league, I like the entertainment value of the second option you noted. Alas, we go with the former.
