  1. FTFY. If it works for you that's great. ADP "Average Draft Position" is a compilation of where a player is selected by the "Average Joe". The Average Joe finishes typically finishes average ... or in other words "Out of the Money". I've never used it and never will.
  2. And that's the exact reason I don't look at or use ADP.

  6. Apparently Wright is still having shoulder issues: Steven Wright is still rehabbing his injured right shoulder. Wright first injured his shoulder during a pinch-running appearance back in August. He's been battling bursitis and rotator cuff irritation since then but is hoping to be back for the start of spring training. Now that Clay Buchholz is in Philadelphia, the All-Star knuckleballer should be in position to land the No. 5 spot in Boston's starting rotation. Source: Boston Globe Jan 14 - 4:32 PM
  7. Park did have surgery last August: Byung Ho Park (hand) has begun taking swings near his offseason home in South Korea. Park underwent season-ending surgery in August to repair a tendon his right middle finger that had been causing him discomfort for months. The injury might help explain why Park cratered so badly in June after performing well over his first several weeks of MLB action. Park is expected to be 100 percent leading into spring training next month and should have partial share of the DH role in Minnesota. Source: Mike Berardino on Twitter Jan 12 - 1:18 PM
  8. ^ If I recall correctly there was some Astros beat reporter that guaranteed Giles would be the closer on 2016 Opening Day. Then that blew up in his face when Hinch named Luke Gregerson as the Opening Day closer.
  9. I've got Giles 11th on my list. Would be 12th but I bumped down Familia due to a possible suspension.
  10. Hope all is well with FoulLine. He hasn't been on since Sunday morning. FouLLine Established Members 1,856 Content count12,794 JoinedFebruary 22, 2008 Last visitedSunday at 10:02 AM
  11. 1 pick in 16 hours ... OUCH
  12. I'd keep Andriese without blinking over Meyer while Buchhole warrants a sharp axe
  13. He may be referring to his rapidly declining financial situation. Going from his requested 5 years / $150 mill . . . . . . . . . .. . to 1 year for ?
  14. Tyson Ross was non tendered by SD and is a Free Agent
  15. The deeper the league the more problematic Rich Hill becomes as the waiver wire is typically thin to barren. In shallower the leagues he has more value and is easily replaced.
