    I feel sad for the two of you, on the outside looking in, wishing you hadn't quit on your teams, just before they got good.
    My team was always good, thanks. Weird blips happen.

    I know. If Wok had Kopech I would have traded him Carrasco a month ago, so I got who I was wanting out of it in the end

    Waiver 9 is probably worth at least an OF2 with lots of power, though, right?

    I’m sitting on waiver 8. I expect to not make a claim in the next 3 years at least.

    I remember when i had a waiver around 10 and finally got frustrated enough to use it.

    The lucky selection? Richie effing Shaffer.

    At which point you will blow it on the prayer of a dead cat bounce from a current day elite reliever.

    Still surprised he never amounted to much. His minor league numbers looked so good.

    Going to see if I can get something better. If not I might accept that.

    So how do you people feel about your 2017 draft. My draft last year:

    21. Juan Soto - Still love with this pick. He has the potential to be an elite prospect.
    39. Trevor Clifton - bust
    45. Will Benson - No real opinion yet. He showed his tools, but had significant contact issues.
    56. Albert Abreu - Traded mid draft to P2F for what turned out to be pick 27 this year. Happy with this pick.
    102. Ronald Guzman - Traded to Spanky for Bryan Shaw.
    109. Max Povse - looks to have like 5th starter upside. Possible bust,
    127. Luis Alexander Basabe - probably bust
    129. A.J. Minter - Love this pick. He was a huge part of my playoff run, and I think he'll have a great 2018.
    131. Josh Ockimey - still OK with it. He's up to AA and still looking like a guy.
    132. Dane Dunning - broke out in 2017 and then traded in my Tanaka deal

    I'm pretty happy with the draft overall. I give myself a B.

    I'm guessing this is a swap of waiver orders right. Meaning I can't have waiver #9 and #15. You'd have to get #15?

    13. Cal Quantrill - Still developing, but struggled upon promotion; traded with Kopech and Smoker for Aroldis. Win.
    28. Greg Allen - Ugh. I was all prepared to take Forrest Whitley here, and then had a change of heart to take an OF that was close to MLB ready instead. I still like him, but passing on Whitley was a mistake.
    69. Jesus Luzardo - Love this pick here. Was a likely first round talent in MLB if not for TJ. Developing nicely, but still a ways away. Could move up prospect lists tremendously this season.
    103. Michell Miliano - This was a reach. He's, like, twelve years away.
    107. Fernando Tatis Jr. - Steal of the draft, friends.
