That statement perfectly encapsulates what it felt like for me to play in the BS finals for the first time last year (and how it's going to feel for me this year as well...).

My draft card looks pitiful now. Carew 1st round. Super reliever 2nd pick. Ott 3rd pick. Joyce 4th. Ballpark 6th. OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!

If it's any consolation, I'm killing myself for not taking Ott #2 when he was there. Heredia would obviously still be on the board right now.

I'm taking my kids to see the sea lions at Fisherman's Wharf so I'm going dark for much of the day. I'll check in occasionally but I sent Moose a list of proxies that should cover me. My assessment of these proxies is, in a nod to jet40, "a bunch of too-clever-by-half value picks that would clean up a normal league but will do absolutely nothing for me here"...

I can't figure this one. I admit, I don't play $100M much. I'd rather have Pedro though.

DJ: You have the best Forbes 57 draft going that I've seen in a damn long time! If I took over your team right now, I wouldn't make a single change so far. 100 wins, here you come.

Shouldn't there be a rule against using my player add from last year's playoffs (Bill Joyce) against me?

i’ve never used joyce before. since he’s your player do you recommend DH or 3B for that boy.

The better question is what about Pinson, Rowan and your other three picks from last year? You should be forced to have them on your roster, since no one else will likely take them. Think Dubose from the year before... I've used Joyce a few times with varied results. He is really only a dh IMHO.
