    I think it's more the fact that we don't want to admit that Spanky is most likely a murderer.

    It honestly cracks me up how many people are saying his floor is 25 dingers, he could easily drop a sophomore turd.

    Even so, catcher is a fantasy wasteland and as a dynasty asset, you'd probably want him over every catcher except Posey.

    The projections do give me mega-wood, in fairness.

    I don't think I'd 1 for 1 tbh, although it would require soul searching and maybe a 3 am walk.

    I know he's not technically a rookie but I feel like a league-average projection is more accurate than what Steamer/ZiPS are spitting out right now.

    http://www.beyondtheboxscore.com/201...systems-graded

    Cool lessons from this link:

    - ZiPS is absolute trash
    - Expecting league average hitting from rookies is a better "projection system" than any actual projection system for rookies
    - Marcel is awesome; publicly available projection systems generally are just busy work

    Probably, I think I have a mild case of GP-itis but my body can fend off the effects until the subject is 30-31 at least.

    Yeah I use projections as toilet paper unless they're to my advantage in a negotiation. If you trade with me, ignore that bit.

    I was expecting some stronger feedback. This is mostly likely the case.

    Spanky as the actual perpetrator of the most famous "unsolved" murder in US history would be a fantastic plot development. Would we be obligated to give his team to the Goldman family in some sort of civil settlement? Only time will tell.

This was allegedly done intentionally, because Dominick was supposed to be able to show compassion and respect the privacy of the Goldman family as best as a media person could do, given how empathetic he could be since a similar senseless murder happened to his daughter a few years prior.

    Now here's the best part, this ENTIRE FUCKING THING is captured in a scene of Emmy and Golden Globe winning "The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story". They reference our little Dominique for a whole fucking scene, with the entire point of the scene being to show the impact of her death on her father, who later became this big shot journalist for the most important murder trial in American history. Dominique is really big deal in a sense, and we had no fucking clue.

    Now, what is the implication of this... How did our very own Spanky come up with this name in a drunken stupor. Is he an American History wiz? Was he a big follower of the OJ Trial? It's hard to say really, but it is suspicious....

    I'm not saying Spanky was actually the one who murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, but I'm not saying he didn't either.
    Spanky is an American race-relations scholar, self taught

    I think a lot of people missed this because it was late at night and at the end of a page. That's some good sleuthing, however I think the obvious conclusion is that Spanky murdered Dominique, not Nicole.
