    C: Buster Posey - I wanted JT Realmuto and only Gryph would pick before my next pick, and Gryph always talks about how Catchers are overdrafted, so I was like okay I can grab Abreu and then get JT. Then Gryph took him and I was unprepared at Catcher plans outside of JT or Gary so I took Posey when ESPN said he was a reasonable pick.

    1B: Jose Abreu - I didn't want to run back the Hosmer/Cabrera plan from last year, and I feel like CWS is on the upswing and perhaps gets traded to a contender late in the year?

    2B: Brian Dozier - I wanted HRs not AVG this this year, and I wanted exposure to the Nationals lineup and I think Dozier could maybe bat behind Turner/Rendon/Soto so RBI opportunity?

    3B: Manny Machado - He isn't a 3B yet, so I'm rolling with Devers in the RedSox lineup, but Machado is awesome and I'm happy to have him on my fantasy team again.

    SS/UTIL: Corey Seagar & Carlos Correa - I felt these were BPA players and was kinda an issue taking them after round 1 Machado, but fuck it these guys are good and Seagar is off injury so maybe this plan comes to fruition a little bit down the line and my bench options have a little time to shine.

    OF: Michael Brantley & George Springer & Kris Bryant (Depth Jackie Bradley) - I really liked Brantley last year and having him as my OF3 again is cool, and I got Springer back a year after his ADP rose and I think the Astros is still an elite lineup so having Springer and Correa seems good to me. Bryant is awesome too and Im comfortable having him lead this group of OFs. Jackie Bradley apparently completely changed his swing or something using JD Martinez's personal coach? I dunno changed approach and elite defense to stay in the lineup of a top lineup and it seems like a decent depth option.

    RP: Kimbrel & Hader & LeClerc - I think this is the weakest RP group I've had in a long time, but a lot of upside. Hader might not get many SV opportunities and he throws so damn hard he might get hurt but seems good, LeClerc has velocity but iffy control, and Kimbrel doesn't have a team. Sick potential though maybe?

    SP: Verlander & Strasburg & Bumgarner& Eovaldi & Arrieta & Rich Hill & Gausman
    Top three I am happy with (last year's trio was Verlander/Bumgarner/Syndergaard so this isn't really all that different), the next tier is question marks. Eovaldi should rack up wins and had a good playoff run, Arrieta used to be something and the Phillies got better, Rich Hill has injury concerns but also on a good team, and Gausman is a rosterable option on the Braves who might be good.

    Didn't list Cahill because I thought he was on the As still, so without that put him on waivers for a different player.

    Yeah, had a rough draft this year. it happens. Not too pleased with my team.
    C- JT Realmuto : As Hulky said, fantasy overvalues these two (Gary and JT) but with the black hole that's everything behind them, their ADP prices are normally far higher, but I got JT in the 6th/7th iirc, and he's consistent 1/2/3 catcher in fantasy, I'll take that any day of the week

    1B - Anthony Rizzo, Luke Voit, Joey Gallo : Once again, consistency in Rizzo, you nkow 25/90+ from him every year is almost assured aside from injury, another potential OF/DH/1B in Voit who in 31 games last year for Yankees smacked 14 Homers and 31 RBI's and looks fantastic this spring, Gallo, at this point why not, OF elig, but bombs are bombs since I was already pretty set on most positions by the time I got him

    2B - Rougned Odor : I'm hoping we get 2nd half Roogy, and not 1st half. He seems like he's in a good place this spring, so fingers crossed we get the old 260 / 30 / 80 / 20 guy again

    3B - Miguel Andujar : He's my boy, they ripped him off a RoTY, so hopefully I can bring him a fantasy championship instead

    SS - Paul Dejong / DiDi Gregorious : Dejong was undervalued this year, mostly because of the broken hand last year, but he's batting 3rd in a lineup after Goldy, and he popped 25 Homers before the hand injury. And I got Didi who is a top 5-10 SS with the last pick. I'll take it

    OF - Acuna, Polanco, Renfroe - Not my best OF by far, but if Acuna is who we think he is, we could be looking at a poor man's Mike Trout, Polanco will miss first month, but has 20/20 production, and Renfroe's power and iso have been climbing every year since he got here, so I'm banking on 30 bombs from him this year.

    SP - Paxton, Corbin, Kluber, Archer, Hendricks, Porcello, Skaggs, Godley - Injury city and landmine nation welcomes their newest member Gryph. Whoof. If I can get around 25-28 starts from all of them, and they don't explode things by playoffs, I'll be happy.

    RP - Iglesies, Kenley, Doolittle : *Prays in front of alter* please stay alive. Doolittle in particular, as he completely ruined my RP corps last year when Washington KNEW he had a stress fracture in his foot and left him on the roster for 3 weeks before DL'ing him. Plus side, his shoulder hasn't exploded again...so there's that.

    Not going in depth, but to sum it up my bats are stacked and my pitching behind Nola is questionable at best. Tried a new approach to this points league.

    Ty for letting Mookie fall to 4th.

    Edit: After looking at draft recap, i probably would've taken severino > hangier due to me already having betts and hoskins in the OF.
