    At first I thought It was pretty surprising that out of the 4 teams there was only 1 first round MILB available.


    ...Then I remembered Gibbers is in this league so he has them all.

    I'm looking to move up in the draft.

    I'll offer Pick 91 and Jason Hammel.

    Ugh I should have traded up to grab Nimmo.

    I had a surplus of old OF and I did not need Choo and had a surplus in the BP and non closer guys pop up every year. I got Anthony Swarzak in the FA pool last year. I feel I can replace them easier.
    That's all fair. I just have strong opinions on the two main guys. As you know, I traded Tendi away last year and it's not a super comfortable feeling to be betting against his upside. I would have avoided putting yourself in that situation had I been you. As for Schwarber, his one-dimensional skill set makes me nervous. Guys like him can stop providing value to their real life teams very quickly and I feel like that clouds their fantasy outlook. That being said, you could really nail it with your picks and render the whole comparison moot.

    Quick question:

    Are the rest of us allowed to pick up players, that are not part of the draft now?
    There's some juicy nuggets getting discarded.

    Nope. Your team (and everyone team besides the 4 newbs) are locked from claiming players in the FA pool.

    Nobody is allowed picking up players that weren't dropped by the dispersal draft teams. Even the dispersal teams are restricted to selecting those players. We'll probably put all FA's on waivers after the dispersal draft ends.

    You would have gotten away with it, if not for those meddling commissioners.
