Thanks for asking...

She got out of the hospital yesterday afternoon and, beyond being tired, seems to be doing well. Checked in on her from work today and things continue to go well.

Now to find her a specialist as this is her 3rd trip to the emergency room in 18 months for similar issues. They just get her on her feet and let her go. I/we want to get a root cause for why this keeps happening. 

Yeah totally agree and sounds totally familiar...

Good luck!

I was wondering when someone would finally blink and take Sanchez. Part of me was disappointed he didn't make it back to me, but part of me was happy that I didn't have to take a C in the 9th round...  🙂

 

I was patiently waiting for a domino or two to fall before grabbing my top catcher this year  (well top that wasn't a keeper....)

Heads up that I have a doctor appointment this afternoon and will be out of the loop from approx. 1-4pm ET. Sorry for any delays I cause.

Seems to be a slightly slower day than usual with lots of appointments and meetings. No big deal - we are pacing along well enough to get this done over the weekend or Monday at the latest.

So, any regrets on picks - wishing you had a "do over"? Now that core rosters are in place for most teams, who's team is scaring you the most? Any picks where you feel you got a steal or couldn't believe that a guy fell to you?

I really like how team Kysar and team TalentScout are shaping up. Nice mix of players to fill the stat sheet out week to week. 

I like my team so far, but feel like I've got risk with a couple of key fragile arms (Sale, Tanaka). Solid bounce backs from Correa and/or Donaldson would also be gold.

Was happy getting Marte where he fell to me and hate myself for grabbing a C before the final 3rd of the draft. I NEVER do that, especially for a guy who is doomed to split games like Mejia...

in response to the above question,

I don't feel like I was sniped in any major spots. I had Dickerson on my list but at that point in the draft he was interchangeable with many other players I was looking at. .... oh, Roberto Osuna was snagged from me.

In a deep, basically redraft league, like this... I don't really mind going Catcher or Closer earlier than normal. Wilson Ramos is my guy and was happy to get him as the 4th? (including Realmuto being kept) catcher off the board. 

I was mildly surprised that no one took a leap on Kershaw before my 4th round pick. Just seemed like gamble worth taking in the laqte 3rd, early 4th even if he only starts 25-28 games.  Severino went late 5th and I feel less comfortable with him.

I was happy to land Ramierz at 6, I was pleased with my trade for Blake Snell... as the player I would have picked at 2.7 was Kluber.... but I feel like the drop to Carrasco and George Springer with 2 3rd rounders was worth the addition of Snell. Also happy to land some guys I think will either have solid year and are undervalued (Cano, Abreu) and guys I have hopes can break out (Bauers, Meadows)

I am semi regretting Springer over Marte. My decision was with the idea that I think we saw Marte's peak last year and I think Springer has room to improve off a down year and supposeduly is going to steal more. We shall see.

As a Mariners fan I can assure you that Hunter Strickland pick will not work out well.  Stupid Mariners...

I disagree, ...I think Hunter will be rockin' for at least the first month, ...maybe even most of May. Then, ...he will blow a save in epic fashion, ...and go punch the Space Needle. Yeah, ...after that, ...it will not work out so well. 😝

Wow, glad I opted for pitching in rounds 19/20 before I had to sit on the sidelines for a while. Pitchers getting hit hard in 20/21...

 

We are cruising this morning!  Nice job everyone!

Looks like we were cruising too fast and got pulled over.  Kysar expects to be able to pick in about 2 hours.

Apologies for the delay - met some friends for breakfast who are visiting Boston from the west coast. They are flying back this afternoon.

Give me about 20 mins or so to catch up and figure out who to pick.

Great job, everyone! Our fastest draft in years!

Thanks!

Good luck to all this season!

I will be starting up the league site and we can transition over to there for all future trades, discussions, etc. for the season. Please send me a text if you see any mistakes with your roster.

Because you were running it and I am not in the league...

Bah... Not true. I ran it last year too and it was one of the slowest and most frustrating drafts ever. 

Despite losing 2 solid managers, we picked up 2 great new ones this season and our mid-year replacement from last season has been awesome as well. They were all on point and ready to rock. Combine that with Ghost's Fantasy Baseball OCD (LOL) and your help in the background and it makes my role a lot easier than it otherwise would be.

there was only 1 game today, correct? is yahoo just glitchy and scoring spring training games?

There is only one game and Yahoo is famous for counting all of the games stats every game and then removing the non-real games over night...

Since the league has started, that will be like that every day from now on...

They used to even count the all-star game stats and removed them after the overnight stat feed, but I think last year they fixed it to not even count the live stats...
