    Let's see how much of my finish ends up being attributable to being the only person who uses bbref instead of the spreadsheet and thus knows about more players.

    btw, not sure he would actually have been useful due to having terrible career numbers, but if you needed a good speed BY out of a bad letter and position, Jonathan Villar 2016 had .285/19 HR/63 RBI/92 R/62 SB at 2B/SS. If I didn't already have overkill on BY SB I might have been better off using that for my MI and using a wild card for my last pitcher. Probably not.

    In the best of times, our days are numbered, anyway. And it would be a crime against Nature for any generation to take the world crisis so solemnly that it put off enjoying those things for which we were presumably designed in the first place, and which the gravest statesmen and the hoarsest politicians hope to make available to all men in the end: I mean the opportunity to do good work, to fall in love, to enjoy friends, to sit under trees, to read, to hit a ball and bounce the baby.

    . I love Grandkids all the good very little bad. Mine are 18,15,12,10,5 and I got my boys with grandkids (2). At one time I could walk to all 3 of my daughters house. Still only 10 min away. I go out to eat with at least 1 of them every week and our Christmas tradition (and birthday) is we go out to eat and shopping. Today I am meeting the 18 year old for that and the other 4 are clamoring for when we are going. I play Fortnite about 4 nights a week with the 2 boys and we have a blast.( they are really good and I am really bad but they don’t care and we just laugh and laugh)

    I am going to be unavailable for a while starting pretty soon. DMT is posting elsewhere so I assume he is going to be (pick)ing while white very soon here.

    I definitely benefited from getting Walter Johnson in this draft. It allowed me to not know what I was doing for six rounds, not have to draft another pitcher during that time, and just grab hitting value based on historical drafts.

    This is one of the few drafts where I have picked a player early strategically rather than based on pure value. I figured with Johnson on my team, I could absorb the ratio hit of Phil Niekro and sit pretty in the pitching categories for a while, allowing me to need to draft only one other pitcher (John Franco) in the first twelve. Then I finally went on a pitching run, anchoring my ratios with Sweeney and Bender and adding in a bunch of closers and finally capping it off win/K monster Mickey Lolich.

    OK I'm back. Apparently who I pick here matters a bunch and changes a lot of stuff. I thought for sure one particular dude was my best option but it looks like he might not be, despite his (dubious) HoF status.
