Shocked Swanson fell to me last night. Not sold on his offensive upside and I can see why he was dropped but definitely the best I could have hoped for in my position. Id be interested to hear why the Milers took Mercer when they did.

Could be a cap situation. Swanson going for $2,410K means if the Milers min capped the position, he would be bypassed. Swanson is limited from an OPS perspective but should be a very solid addition to the rest of your very strong lineup. Definitely could've been worse.

Mission accomplished for me this draft. Figured I'd be getting Shaw as my every day 3B from the get go as most 3B would be kept. Pleased to get Kang in round 2 as a flier with upside. Drafting Schimpf and Reyes would ease the blow if he never makes it out of S. Korea. I think the Hot Rods will field a competitive team in 2017. My OF is still weak but with a little luck, who knows.

Had no idea who I would get in the catcher draft. Flowers and Cervelli is as good as I could expect. Won't scare anybody but at least plenty of starts between the 2 of them.

Hi Guys

The Draft Was Good to me considering I had to keep Pederson (50 plus XBases)
though he do zippo against Lefties.  Both SS will play and I got the best Younger
available Catcher.  Some kind of trade off.  If Harvey is healthy 175 innings, Colon
is Colon and Dickey does not ruin me when I need him, .........  All in all I'm ready
to compete.

I'm happy with my team, the best I've had in Atlantis. Of course I've never finished higher than 4th in 10 years.

There you go Gil, Hernandez not even on your roster 4 hours and he hits a tater because he likes it there already.

Three bombs by Rendon sunk us versus the Chickens last night. 44 total bases. Not often you see offense like that. No hope for the Infidels this year.

Thought I'd try and get this thread going again. We've been pretty quiet the last couple of years here although the back and forth e-mails have been pretty good. Kept Arrieta, Scherzer and Chase Anderson and added Jon Gray, Ivan Nova and Kyle Freeland. Pretty happy with that rotation.

Righty - that rotation is top notch. The Hot Rods are still rebuilding mode as we carry two $5M players in Bellinger and Story. Went back and forth on keeping Story. Figured this is his make or break year so I decided to roll with the power upside. Hopefully he rewards my faith. I should maybe change the team name to the Cincinnati Hot Rods after drafting 3 out of the 4 OF's. I think I'll be competitive this year. Maybe fight for a playoff spot if I can add a SP or 2. I have a pretty decent lineup.

Well, folks, Now what do I do?  Have the most money, so theoretically I can get whomever I want.
But I don't know who/what that is?
Do I go for the best player?  Or to fill a need? Or to holdout for the Great Acuna?

Happy with my team - much better than last year's. Especially love my OF - and can spare one for the right fit on the trade market.
