    Damn, there are tons of 1Bs that are cut from the same low-BA, high-power cloth:

    Santana
    Encarnacion
    Olson
    Muncy
    Gallo
    Shaw
    Sano
    Smoak


    I feel half tempted to try and wait it out until I end up with Miguel Cabrera. Who knows what you'll get with him but you might strike gold (or get jack dick).

    From what I know about it, there was zero ill will or disrespect meant on his part. I don't know him well and this couldn't testify fully to this, but I saw no indications of him being either a racist or a jerk.

    Yeah, that's essentially the unanimous take on the situation. My dislike is irrational and certainly colored by the terrible outcome. I thought his hat tip was a classy move. Certainly a far cry from Josh Hader.

    I thought the fan reaction in both situations was very disappointing. Again, far moreso in Milwaukee. This kind of shit certainlyh doesn't deserve standing ovations.

    Yeah, I agree about the fan reaction. I understand some element of "this is our guy and we love him and the rest of the world is out to get him", but actually going so far as a standing ovation sends the wrong message in all kinds of ways. And betrays the fact a lot of America is made up of people who could elect Donald Trump and happily put Steve Bannon and Steven Miller in the White House.

    Holy smokes, I started reading the Amazon thread in the Hot Buttons forum, and I got about a page and a half into it before my head hurt so much I couldn't continue. A few people need to take some basic economics classes or history classes or something.

    So did anyone ever eat the beefaroni?

    Who do we like more and why: Matt Olson or Edwin Encarnacion about a round or two later?

    Here's why I ask. My team through 8 rounds:

    1. Arenado
    2. Sale
    3. Bryant
    4. Buehler
    5. Pham
    6. Clevinger
    7. Gordon
    8. Haniger


    I'm starting to feel more concerned about 1B, despite trying to convince myself earlier that I could keep waiting. Rotolab has Encarnacion as not only the best 1B available but the best bat overall (Aaron Hicks and Ozuna are next most valuable bats). I also want to get some pitching going plus I still don't have a shortstop. Best pitching options appear to be Mikolas, Price, Morton and a variety of middling old dudes and upside guys like Castillo. Closers are also starting to fall - next best ones available are Vazquez, Hand, Doolittle.

    Help VD-wan Kenobis! You're my only hope!

    Well, fuck. Encarnacion just went two picks before me. I think I have to move on Olson now.
