Let's talk some fantasy baseball
By David Schoenfield
The fantasy baseball guys have been conducting a mock "dynasty" league draft -- a keeper league, where you get to keep as many players as you want each year (some leagues set a limit on how many you can protect).
Anyway, I've been one of the 10 owners participating in the draft. You can read AJ Mass' recap of the first 10 rounds here.
Tristan Cockcroft and I also recorded a podcast going over the first 20 rounds of the draft. It's Insider Premium Audio, so you'll need to be an Insider to access it, but it takes you behind the scenes into our thought process.
I went very young, taking Bryce Harper with the third pick, and also landing Jason Heyward, Clayton Kershaw, Manny Machado, Will Middlebrooks and Salvador Perez. Kershaw, Madison Bumgarner, Chris Sale and Max Scherzer headline my pitching ... but I also landed R.A. Dickey later on. It's a team built for the long haul but with a chance to win now.
(And for more fantasy advice, here's Tristan's latest chat wrap.)
