Great start --had to pick two of these four to start ----

H.Pence
H. Matsui
J.Borbon
K.Blanks

Of course I go with Borbon and Pence =0/8
while Matsui and Blanks =3/8 2HR

New year same result!

I had Drew fall to a decent spot to me in a couple drafts and I passed. I think I might regret that one down the road.
