Jurrjens, and you read Razzball? How dare you! Yeah, the team looks solid (except for Jurrjens). Very strong pitching, a tad stronger than you need, which has hurt the hitting a bit. You have a bunch of steals, don't think Bourjos makes sense on this team. Overall the team does look competitive though...

Imagine taking a 2b or 3b at 5 and a sp at early to mid teens.

Jurrjens had an xFIP of 4.23 last year and a near 6 k/9. Sure he overperformed, but I'm not sure where I'd go for another solid bench pitcher. Maybe I should have drafted another closer instead? Maybe another middle infielder like Cozart?

Imagine Jurrjens has a good start like he had last year. I could probably swap him and Bourjos for an above average OF. And it's h2h... the great Razzball told me to draft lots of pitchers.

Idono.

Right... Instead of Lester, I could have gone with Phillips. Maybe I could propose that trade.

Draft pitchers I like.

Thanks, friend!
