I don't need him or Zimm or the Real Albert Pujols until the playoffs. But this is Frustrating.

uggla, Dunn, and Reynolds. All very similar players. All struggling equally. Almost idential numbers. All with a change of scenery this year.

Was he really? I don't do drafts, only auctions. But they all went for similar $. Reynolds slightly less.

Uggla and Dunn both were typically 3rd rd picks. Reynolds anywhere from the 6th-8th. I liked all 3 of them in my H2H OBP league since that minimizes their BA downside (not a category).

Reynolds in the 6th-8th... WHAT?!? 8-o I drafted him in the 15th rd and this is in an OPS league where his batting avg. won't murder you. he started cold and I dropped him after a month without thinking twice about it. neither I, nor anyone in my league had any sort of lofty expectations for mark reynolds. I don't know why anyone would.

oddly enough the pick I regret the most is Ronny Paulino for $2 in my NL-Only League. I was sure someone would bid $3, it was late and there were no C left... but no one did, so in the draft he filled my UTIL spot (I already had Chris Snyder for $3 and Lucroy for $9), and I ended up with $7 extra. A few minutes later Juan Miranda (who I liked) went for $3...
