    Would love to hear thoughts on the closers take in rounds 2 and 4.

  • Avatar Gene says:

    Have you ever considered doing an abbreviated daily round up during the playoffs? Roundup withdrawals are tough.

  • Avatar Big Joey says:

    Cody Bellinger Round 10? Wow!

  • Avatar Big Red says:

    The founder of Pitcher List doesn’t take a hurler until the fifth round. Interesting.

  • Avatar Ryan says:

    Where do you think Ohtani would go in a league with daily lineups and can move between SP and utility? #1?
