As the commissioner of a baseball league with friends for the third year in a row (I've won both times), and my draft 9 days away, I'm a pretty happy camper.
Not only am I here to go for a three-peat, but I am especially excited for this year's draft. I drew the #1 pick. Usually, I like a #5 or 6 pick. But I am excited to get A-Rod this year.
Now, the owner of the #2 pick and I have made a pre-draft agreement that he will trade his #1 pick for my #2 pick and my #5 pick (We tell each other who to pick for those selections.) Now, I will have A-Rod and Randy Johnson in the draft, in a 12-team league! Not many drafts start off that well
