What do we have here? All four teams in single digits for the first time. Only one is the top half, and barely, but none is terrible — in late May, any could cash, and that’s even more the case given how chaotic and unpredictable the pitching environment has been.
I also feel better about my decision-making throughout my drafts. Even though I felt I did sufficient prep and was reasonably disciplined during the live drafts, it’s impossible not to question yourself when all four teams are in double digits after six weeks.
