Two more rounds done now. Just waiting to get through the 5th and 6th rounds, before I have a “break” as I’ve traded away my 7th and 8th round picks. Quality in this draft went quick, with back ups going in the 3rd round, and a few even in the 2nd round.
My first 3rd round pick (#55) was used on Matt Chico (P). Not the greatest, but I did need starting pitching. My other 3rd round pick (#67, acquired in a trade with Atlanta), got used on Dmitri Young, aka “Da Meathook.” Dmitri is not long for the team, as he’s already been traded away.
Round four was a bit of a toss up for me. It was either Jerry Owens (CF), or another pitcher. I ended up taking a flyer of Kameron Loe (P). A bit of a risk, but as he’ll be in the 4 or 5 slot in the ortation, what he gets in terms of wins will be a bonus. His main upside is his youth (relative), ans has a shot to be an average pitcher in the MLB.
So here I await my turn in round 5…
