    Wrong. Philly announced him as an OF when he was drafted, sorta like Washington did with Harper.

    I was looking at Clark, Randolph, and Kim at this spot. Since the top of my board got sniped, I'm going to blow out my wonky shoulder and make a big reach:

    WAS selects Vlad Guerrero Jr, Toronto Blue Jays.

    I must be a homer; it's pretty unlike me to draft a teenager with no pro ABs.

    You did the same thing in the DDL, ran out of ideas and drafted the top Blue Jay. That being said Vlad was the top Dominican IFA on the board. He was probably going to go before you picked again. It's not a huge reach but it's just funny to me because I totally expected it.

    I'm pretty torn between a handful of guys right now. I'm open to moving down.

    I think [DDL prospect, name redacted] actually slid to where I picked him, IIRC. I'm not his biggest fan but he's already made a couple Top 100 lists since I popped him. I'm never going to have the most in-depth draft board in the league, so this will probably continue to happen.

    Really, more than anything I just don't have any super sexy guys left on my board that I can see turning into impact bats. I would rather see Vladdy turn into a bust than miss my chance at him, and as you said, very little chance he would have made it back to me at 60.

    I was looking at Vlad for my 2nd round picks. Nice pick at this point I think.

    I remember people laughing at Gibbers when he reached for Mazara in a DDL draft, and I think the same might have happened for Devers. The vast majority of these guys bust, but I think Vladdy has stud potential.

    I was gonna reach for Devers in BBDL and ang sniped him. Nepotism, I tell you. Vladdy's got higher upside than pretty much everyone remaining unless you draft like Abom and a lot of options still OTB are meh.

    Yep. Mostly 50 OFPs left at the top of the board, AMIRITE BOXY?
