yt had 2 chances to take Stanton and didn't on either. He must be turning over a new leaf.

I figured between his Ks and injuries he'd slip to the 3rd round. Oh well hope he rakes for the Arby.

He could still pick up Severino in the 3rd.

I can't believe Goldy fell to me (even though he is on the Cardinals). I was going to take him 2.01 and was surprised Greinke lasted that long. I'm not going to jinx it, but I am targeting 1 more guy for 4.01...he should not last this long in the draft.

Went for the high ceiling pick, have to swing for the fences with my cache of late, late picks. Win-win for me... he rakes and my fantasy team wins, he hits the DL for the year and my real world nemesis feels the pain.

He's burned me the last two years. I'm not counting on a bounce back. And without steals he's not all that special anymore. But in the third round, worth it.

Well after my Strassburg SNAFU I was between Rizzo, Goldy and Bryant. Thought about Goldy but his elbow is barking already.

I think OBP changes dynamic for some players that are low AVG but average OBP, but good power.
Of the new school categories, I'm more of a fan of OPS then the boring OBP as obviously with a high OPS there is a bat swinging as opposed to the rest-on-the-shoulder OBP.

I'm good with changing any hitting categories until at least pick 7.15...
