    I made two trades prior to the draft and one pick. I traded the 5th overall pick and Kevin Newman for Hector Neris and Josh Hader. With my two picks, I took Carlos Carrasco and Keone Kela. Nothing now until after pick 300.

    Update: New trades.
    Mondesi, final year, and draft consideration for Alex Kirilloff and Brandon Lowe, both with three more years.
    Victor Robles and draft consideration for Carlos Martinez and Trey Mancini

    Your team looks great, and I agree with taking a pitcher there - I think Darvish would be a good choice.

    That was actually my thought before I read onejay's comment or your post.

    I was going from the Darvish/Kluber options he gave at the bottom. If all are available lets just take Strasburg?

    It looks really good in terms of talent level - you clearly have far more than 1/16th of the talent in the league - but even in this weird offensive environment it feels like you might be skewing a bit too far toward speed and low-OBP players. Maybe Yelich and Acuna make up for that, or maybe Newman stays surprising, but you have a lot of Mondesi/Rosario/Hampson/Newman/Robles and not a lot of actual power hitters. I think you'll need to do some rebalancing.
    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 agree on speed overkill, especially with the extra stats diluting the impact. OBA is a stickier issue, especially with Mondesi. I tried to trade him, but the injury snuffed his appeal. More likely I get a bite on Amed Rosario and/or Victor Robles.

    I had planned to keep Darvish and give up the pick until I saw what would be available. Now, he's the downside.

    Just traded Kevein Newman plus minor draft value for Hector Neris. Now, if Villar falls to me, I'll take him, a SP the next round and then a lot of RP.

    One expert commented that I should use the minimum SP and try to win both holds and saves (separate categories) every week. We'll see if that is even a possibility.

    is the plan to dump OBP and try to get the extra point for having double the steals of the next best team?

    The plan was to rebuild the team by acquiring young talent. I got Mondesi in 2018, for example, Chapman the year before and Hampson last season, all off WW. Last season I went all in on prospects, hence Franco, Adell and Lewis. Roberts and Robles are long term keepers who had been taking up a roster spot for no gain.
