    I am usually suspect about modern SPs, especially if they come with a premium.
    Yeah, this is a big part of how I screwed up my draft. Those modern pitchers like Maddux and Randy Johnson are always there what feels like way too long at the beginning, and I usually tell myself that I can get my saves from the 1950s, 60s, 70s, and 80s late in the draft. Getting the saves that way is fine. But I hurt my ratios in the process, and I needed to really load up on hitting at the beginning if I wanted to do that. So I executed one part out of three on what needed to be my strategy, and here I am.

    Now that I think about it, I rarely pick modern starting pitchers, but I always seem to desire them. And when I do I often regret it.

    The 2010s should have changed that though ... though maybe it just raised the bar on saves? 🤔

    Time to get rid of that stupid Snowden era signature. We clearly don't give a shit about individual privacy any more.

Otherwise things are going great.
    I guess they get their creative side from Kim.
