    I had that trio of arms acquired prior to 2016 all ranked very high on my list (Keller, Romero, Szapucki).

    Collins bat seems pretty easy to bank on, and if he stays behind the dish he could have mega value, very happy with the pick. Almost went with a riskier take because I have a feeling King will grab him before my next pick.

    Yeah, it sucks that Fernandez died. It sucks for the owner a lot, but it also sucks for the teams that were in line to get Maitan and Otani.

    So hard to believe all these stat scouters have put a 16 year old so high. Five years is a long time to wait in Fantasy...I suppose for trade value alone you have to take him high but even as a DDL owner I'd have trouble seeing him as part of my future as I can't look that far.

    You can trade him to me. I traded my way up to 1 to snag him in BORED.

    That's the really tough part of making these lists (and I guess of scouting baseball), weighing the longer term upside of a 16/17 year old against someone much older and closer to helping. I've spent way too much time debating my ranking, and then threw it out the window and went with an older guy on my first pick.

    I never, ever go for teenagers, especially from Latin America. But when scouts call a prospect generational, and throw Miggy and Chipper comps on him, I want in on the ground floor. The hype hasn't even begun IMO.

    I'll wait for the hype to grow first. Then I will trade him for Wade Davis, Ryan Zimmerman and a draft pick.

    Are we supposed to email the next GM or does that only start when the draft officially begins tomorrow?

    Emails are a mere courtesy so you have no more or no less obligation to send one.

    Yes, you are. You can just send a PM to their BJMB account as well.
    There's no consequences for not doing it, but generally either try to do that, or post in the forums asking someone else to do it.

    It just speeds everything up, as not everyone is on the forums all day - and many hours can go by when people (mostly jaysblue) don't realize they are up.

    I don't think Havok has been around much as of late. I'm sure he would appreciate an e-mail so if he hasn't done any prep he can start before his window opens tomorrow.

    My draft is basically over, unless someone wants to trade me a pick upcoming. I've got one more guy I've got my eye on.
