    That was sarcastic because I have always felt that Trout is overrated. I think he's a phenomenal player, but not the GOAT as everybody seems to call him

    Great drafting with everybody today! As usual, I changed my team name to reflect my top draft pick

    I fell on the sword and took the bum. I felt bad for him.

    1 hour and 59 minutes. It went pretty smoothly. I was on video chat a couple of times, but no one joined. I guess that we must have some people in the Witness Protection Program.

    Sorry about that. I know it was my idea. My internet was spotty at the start due to this rainstorm, and then I got preoccupied with something else

    I almost don’t make it. I thought it was one hour later lol

    Anyways, great draft and audience. I see more interest this year. Hopefully most of us are active.

    Good luck to everyone.

    I'm not gonna lie. I lost some interest in baseball last year due to pandemic and other things happening in life during it, and I was incredibly lost in the later rounds. I plan on being active in the league obviously, especially on waivers, but my friend was hating on my team saying all my picks were reaches. I think only picks he liked value wise were Andrew Vaughn and Gary Sanchez lol.

    Its also really hard to tell who was actually declining last year, who had a bad season due to covid/injuries and who had fluke seasons... but I guess that'll be sorted out soon.

    And I didn't even know there was a video chat option. I would be down to do one in the future though. I think I have a few people from here on social media already.

    I was debating between Vaz and Sanchez for my primary catcher then I remembered the massive slump Gary was in for most of last year. But yeah, you're right. Maybe his mind wasn't in it last year. Very few players could say they were fully focused last year.

    Yeah that was my logic too. I don't like Sanchez, especially because he's a Yankee but he's a guy I've drafted multiple times and he's such a beast when he's on for a weak position in fantasy. I think Vazquez definitely has the higher floor, but I think Sanchez ceiling is way higher. I know his defense is questionable but that doesn't matter in fantasy. If he can go back to his power hitting self where he's high homer/run/RBI guy, I'll happily take that.

    I wanted to take Garver as a backup option because I think he bounces back too, but someone took him lol.

    12 teams makes for a thinner talent pool. And pitching this year was very thin.

    How was that set up? I would have jumped on if I had known.
