Maybe, Profar still might make the opening day roster and I've seen projections of Bundy being called up by May which given that many teams use a 3 to 4 man rotation for the early part of season isn't a big deal. Washington and the Rangers brass seem to be pushing Profar and Showalter has a man crush on Bundy.

I drafted Trout last year and dropped him after he failed to make the opening day roster and regretted it. I can also always go after Travis d'Arnaud or Mike Zunino too. I took some risks here, though weighted with Carpenter moving to 2B, and If I have to drop one or both of them, so be it, but their upside is undeniable.

I had thought about Brian Roberts but I've been down that god damn road too many times. Instead I'll let Jhonny Peralta disappoint me.

I was going to take Peralta last round. When he went, I slotted in Roberts. Never thought the last two rounds would leave me so frustrated.

Just waiting on Urban and Coug to make their round 23 picks, and we'll get the league online. I have all the rostered entered except for the two picks remaining.
