    I still see Bour as a true talent 115ish RC+ guy and Abreu as a true talent 120ish RC+ guy

    team/park situations both suck, but I can see Abreu moving (although the Sox seem intent on keeping him).

    All in all I like Abreu better. I think he has better upside. Even if I don't see him returning to an elite power threat, the chance is there.

    We'll see how he rebounds after the hand injury. Definitely big power potential.

    This year has been so weird.

    I don't like that they juiced the balls, but they could at least admit it.

    I really is a weird year. It feels like fantasy baseball is more random than ever.

    Admittedly, I watched the HR Derby and Bour was a fucking tank who deserved much more.

    At least Eric Thames has been really shitty for a while

    Yeah, I can't deal with all these scrubs becoming stars. Hicks, Bour, Morton, Gregorius, Smoak

    Fuck off MLB

    Man did I ever overvalue Cron and Mateo. That one has been haunting me all season. At least I picked up Mark Reynolds for a pick and was lucky enough with him (and also hugely lucky with CWS's horrilbe w-l record) to keep my team in contention. Mateo has bounced back a little bit as a prospect this season which means I might still get "something" out of Abreu even if it's less than I should have. I hate that I have a tendency for spontaneous boneheaded moves. I really tried to curb that in this league.

    Someone with a 15+ waiver priority will almost definitely make a claim. We're all a bunch of homers here.

    When guys like Cain keep getting claimed or taken, Rowley definitely will.

    Cron has actually been pretty decent lately, and is projected at 109 wRC+ the remainder of the year. I mean, he's not sexy, but in a league this deep he definitely has value. I was quite happy to be able to snag him for free.

    Still looking for a SS upgrade over Tim Anderson before the deadline if anyone is so inclined.
    I donít suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
