We’re a little past the halfway point, and all four teams are in contention, one is actually cashing right now, and it’s the big one, the Main Event team run by Dusty Wagner:
I went hitters with my first four picks (Mookie Betts, Fernando Tatis, Matt Olson, Corbin Carroll), but if you’re wondering why we’re not in first, my first four starting pitchers were Lance Lynn, Luis Severino, Freddy Peralta and Dustin May. Dusty’s done a good job picking up and streaming pitching.

One of my managers, Ryan Garofalo asked me, halfway through the season, what lessons were learned from outsourcing my in-season moves. I said, “I’m never managing my own teams again.”
I picked the right guys, but it’s basically been all upside, no downside. And if (and when) we cash, I’m happy to share the money because that means we cashed, and I got to live my life without being on deadline, or staying up to wait for the Rockies or Dodgers to put out their lineups.
He was apparently disappointed — he wanted to hear something interesting or counterintuitive maybe, but there really is nothing else except all the enjoyment with none of the headache. It’s (potential) money well spent.
So he reverted to bitching about the starting pitching I drafted him again.

I’ll be doing mostly NFL content going forward this summer. Working on the Snarky150 right now. In some ways it’s harder to come up with the rankings than the comments.
A couple working drafts:
Christian McCaffrey, RB, SF — Easy 1.1 if league requires white RB
Tyreek Hill, WR, MIA — No brainer with Tua
Jonathan Taylor, RB, IND — Owes more people than SBF
