    Cochrane seems really good for this late

    Cochrane is a great value at this point. Went back and forth between taking him or Bresnahan but ultimately thought the catcher slot was better spent in the 1900's and Bresnahan worked well for my team.

    Yeah, he fits into my team well.

    I had been holding off on my last catcher since there are only a handful left to be taken, but I convinced myself that DMT was taking him this round so I pulled the trigger.

    Bresnahan/Cochrane were the two I was considering at that point as well. Once you took B, I focused in on Cochrane, but the way the decades/positions lined up I was able two wait a couple rounds.

    In the draft sheet on dropbox this still says 1895 fyi which does affect the standings slightly.

    Ken and I had been discussing catcher selections. I was also considering Cochrane when I took Stargell but if I can't afford to slack on catchers a bit with the start I have in hitting I have done something terribly wrong. Which I might have, of course.
    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 feel like I still have a chance at relevance. I think my plan of taking hitting until I could see how much dumping was happening in pitching has mostly worked out - I'm probably not going to end up with any 2s in pitching because Johnny/Heye/Hacko overlap to cover the possible places I could get one, so now it's just a question of whether I can get even up to mediocrity in some of the categories.

    This is sort of how I live my life. Doesn't make it a bad life.

    It really feels this way to me.
