Well - no one started anything here, so I'll get the ball rolling.

Good rotation with Hendricks, Lauer, Teheran, Pivetta, Waino & Folty.  And 2nd in the OF.
2nd!?!  Damm that makes it tough.  I have a clear #1, but I've got 4 other guys competing in my head for #2.

Good value for what we paid in Top Doggy's opinion

Now Gil....you might want to consider sending some consideration to my Dog Pound
like a delicious DOG TREAT and I will throw you a BONE and pass on your #1 pick.

Thanks for letting me get Yelich.  Very happy with Yelich, Jones, Schwarber, Nimmo & Renfroe - and Hayward.    And picking 3rd at 1B is a pretty good spot.  So far, happy with my draft.

Greetings Alpha brethren.  Pretty happy with my draft so far, will be able to tune up the pitching staff as we go.  I do like my OF, and picking 5th tonight will still get me a decent 1B.

Hi Gil, Nice to be playing with you again,  Top Doggy- I look forward to competing against you.  Your reputation precedes you.

I was ecstatic this morning when I got Murphy at 1.5M and belt for 500+k, That is until I saw later that Murphy fractured his pinky and hit the IL.  They haven't predicted how long he'll be out for, but it should be at least 6 weeks. Now his 1.5 mil salary makes more sense. Yesterday I guess I wasn't paying attention and drafted Cespedes who probably won't play at all this year. YIKES!!

  I was quite surprised to see that nobody bid on Tatis Jr last night.  He could have been drafted for the minimum, but I don't imagine anyone would have taken that chance.  Instead nobody took a chance at all.

Greetings Candyman.  I don't know who you are, but you have my greeting since you posted something.  It's unfortunate that others don't use the DC at all, and some (like us) only seem to sparingly use it, at least here for Alpha.  There was a time many years ago that the DC was used quite a bit.  Maybe once the frenzy is over there will be more activity here.

Hi Judge.  Thanks for the shout! This is my 30th season in BBM.  I've been in Pinetar for about 10 or so, with 3 championship titles.  I think Tatis has a lot more value in keeper leagues because he is undoubtedly a future super star. He went for 5M in my Atlantis Keeper. Big prospects often bomb in their rookie season.  Even in a keeper 5M doesn't make sense to me. Based on his slow start, his production may not justify that kind of salarythis year. It will be hard to keep him next year, even if lives up to his prospect status this year.

AnyoNe else frustrated by seeing all the lousy pitching performances by supposedly good pitchers?  Seems like pitching will hardly matter this year.

  Isn't it a bit early in the season to have a hole in our lineup?  While it probably helped me win my opener, I don't want to win games that way and I certainly don't want to see other teams getting victories because of it as well.  There are plenty of free agents on the list to avoid this situation and some would be very decent backups.
  Not trying to be ugly or anything here, but unless there's some type of emergency situation there simply should not be a hole in anyone's lineup, especially when there are plenty of viable free agents and decent ones at that.
