    Related to this. I knocked down my waiver priority back to the end. I believe that's the standard penalty for illegal adds.

    Well it's not like I wasn't called out on it but I PM'd NJH and told him that we should just keep it quiet for now so as to not influence the draft.

    KingKat has the most integrity on the message board, in case anyone is wondering.

    Nice find. Second ranked IFA in Vlad's signing group. Was there some sort of quirk of signing date that pushed him into this draft or did we just collectively overlook him?

    That's surprising for this group. We're usually so thorough.

    Even with 300 owned minor leaguers, it's hard (and probably not worth it) to draft 16 year olds with zero pro data beside their name.

    That's fair especially considering the depth of last year's draft. Vlad went fairly early last year as I recall but Taveras and Soto only went this year just like Gimenez and ranking these guys at such a young age is a bit of a fool's errand. Other than Vlad who is a standout, they are all similar assets.

    Longenhagen thinks he'd cut it in A ball as an 18 year old
