    Just saw this. Sorry man - as far as I can tell, won't let me go back and edit rosters for a previous day.

    Never fear. I'm here to claim my rightful place as champion of the Westeros NCAA tournament brackets. All that not watching college basketball certainly paid off this year.

    I'll actually be rooting for you though, ME. I did pretty much the same bracket in my wife's work pool, except she wanted Gonzaga winning it all. She wins if they win, and since it's for money it gets priority.

    And a second trade. Been a fun start to the season, even if they're just minor deals. I get Javier Baez Pyro gets Curtis Granderson Think it makes sense, even if I already addressed 2B/MI with Peraza. Feel way better about the position now that I've got Baez/Peraza/Walker/Miller for 2B and MI. Probably actually have one too many guys there now, and could use another OF to replace Granderson. But moving pieces around is fun, so probably a good thing. If anybody wants to deal, let me know.

    So we've got our first trade. I get Jose Peraza, Week gets Jharel Cotton. Gives me some speed and another option at 2B/MI to try to fix that situation. Gives him a high upside arm. Not the guy I wanted to trade, but didn't have much choice.

    I like your optimism in adding Arenado to your team without any trade talks, but you can't just leave Sano there too. You've got to at least give me him and an OF.

    Sort of happy with my team, but less than I would have hoped. Feel like I was a bit thrown off by getting Mookie at the start - great player, but didn't really fit with my strategy, and I ended up adjusting at a couple of other positions to compensate. Also probably spent too much on young upside OF instead of getting more reliable established players - feel like I had a lot of success doing that last year, and went away from it this year for some reason. C - W.Contreras 1B - E.Encarnacion 2B - N.Walker SS - T.Story 3B - N.Arenado CI - T.Joseph MI - B.Miller OF - M.Betts, G.Polanco, Y.Tomas, C.Granderson, N.Mazara UT - A.Benintendi, D.Dahl Bench - J.Bour, M.Semien, B.Buxton SP - J.Lester, J.deGrom, K.Hendricks, A.Nola, J.Ross, J.Cotton, D.Pomeranz, L.Lynn, A.Wood, T.Glasnow RP - S.Dyson, N.Feliz, B.Kintzler Feel like I'm very strong at C, 1B, SS, 3B, and a couple OF spots, and really like my pitching. But weak at 2B and CI, and the back half of my OF is a bunch of question marks that could either be awesome or could disappoint.

    I remember a long time ago when Bill Self left Illinois, and it became a fun thing to hate on him. I'm sure REG remembers too. But I'm old enough now to realize how stupid that was.

    That's awesome to hear. A few of my friends are saying similar things - there's definitely some excitement over the hire.

    Yeah, we'll go ahead and start at 9:45 ET. Hope that lets you make it on time.

    1) Yeah you can join the draft late. 2) Definitely set predraft values. All of the yahoo values will probably be too high, and if you just leave it to them, you're going to end up spending all of your money on a couple of auto-drafted players at the start, and be left with nothing for depth. At least, that's what always happens in football, and it results in awful teams. Pretty sure you'll be better off if you set the values that you think are appropriate for a lot of players. 3) Personally, I'd be okay with pushing back the draft by 30-45 minutes, if it means you can show up on time. Not sure how people on the East coast would feel about that though. Guessing it would be okay for Groz, since he always wants it as late as possible. @Mexal @Arch-MaesterPhilip

    The Deron Williams - Dee Brown - Luther Head era was the best. But they were all great athletes. And they did have James Augustine in the middle.

    My master plan of watching zero minutes of college basketball and picking the top few upsets on a list I read is failing miserably. Gone 0/2 so far.
