Yes sir...you have some pretty nice deals on the table right now... ;-)

That's the funny thing about it. I'm not overly interested in most of the guys available this round. I'm tempted by Crawford but it could be because I feel he "owes" me after last year. :-{

There was a set of players I really wanted when the pool started but the heavy bidding messed all that up. There are still about 5 players left that I want but I want to be careful to not blow my cash before they show up. It also looks like my team will be pitching rich which is always a risky proposition.

How do you guys feel about your teams so far? Any bids you regret having made or not made?

Some seriously great steals right now. A couple guys I'd love to own … looks like I have 24 more hours to decide though.

Ageism = Hosmer going for almost 3 times as much as Berkman.
And the Big Puma is dual position eligible.


Ageism!

Good article at Rotoraphs about ageism: http://www.fangraphs.com/fantasy/index. ... k-for-you/
I guess ageism is understandably rampant in keeper pools but are we seeing it here too?

There was also an article on the "sophomore jinx" but I couldn't find it. Hosmer looks like the real deal but will he escape the jinx? As I recall there wasn't much statistical support for the jinx.

There appears to be no Bryce Harper hype machine at work in this league. :-b
