Kent Ostby Seadogs
Randy Dobnak Minnesota Twins

Ah, looked this up, too: After you lost out on Dobnak and Ray you bought five players, each for $1, so it looks like you were stuck.

Peter Kreutzer Rotoman
Corbin Burnes Milwaukee Brewers

Earned $32 in 2020 ... and that's what he got paid last night in PCL ... joining the elite $28+ starters ...

DeGrom 46

Scherzer 34

Snell 35

Strasburg 29

Urias 28

Howard Lynch LynchMob
Joey Votto Cincinnati Reds

Went for $9 in what I thought was a high-inflation PCL auction last night ... he won't hit .226 again, will he?  Ack!  he's on pace for .167!  And he's yet to draw a walk?  I guess I'm glad I was out of money at the time ... 

Howard Lynch LynchMob

Here's two PCL examples of what makes the world go round in roto.

I dropped a bid (wasn't paying attention) and Jackie Bradley went for 10 (I had him at 22 on my list). My friend this morning said, no big deal, I had Bradley at 9.

What hurt, he said, was Votto who he had at 22, going for 9. No problem, I said, I had Votto at 7 on my list.

Roto in a nutshell.

Kent Ostby Seadogs
Edwin Rios Los Angeles Dodgers

Cost $7 in PCL last night. Biggest bargain of the night was $1 Ahmed.  Naquin cost 7x as much (as did Rios). 

joel schreier jschri
Randy Dobnak Minnesota Twins

I'm not sure I nominated him but I'm almost certain I still could have said three. For some reason I kept letting pitchers go. Most notably Robbie Ray.

Alex Patton Alex
Cristian Pache Atlanta Braves

He was bunting for a hit but if the pitcher fielded it he would have gotten a sac.

Alex Patton Alex

I can (Tanks).

Alex Patton Alex

I can't resist ...

Howard Lynch LynchMob
Matt Carpenter St. Louis Cardinals

Lasts until the 8th round of the reserve draft tonight in PCL. 

Kent Ostby Seadogs
Randy Dobnak Minnesota Twins

Hackers paid $2. I think Alex went $1. 

EDIT: I looked it up, thanks to saving the Zoom Chat we have a record:

18:01:46 From  Moose Factory  to  Everyone : dobnak 1

18:01:56 From  hackers  to  Everyone : 2

Peter Kreutzer Rotoman
Willians Astudillo Minnesota Twins

I can see a movie on the Criterion Channel based on this premise. Is it hitting when you swing and miss? 

Peter Kreutzer Rotoman
Cristian Pache Atlanta Braves

If the bunt is a hit everyone rejoices. Apart from the other team. Bunting for an out? Even the other team rejoices.

Peter Kreutzer Rotoman
Tyler Naquin Cincinnati Reds

In Tout NL I bid 62 on Justin Williams because I needed a hitter, and lost to a 63 bid from Derek Carty. Until tonight I pretty much forgot that my consolation prize was the 13 FAAB Tyler Naquin, I'm noticing now.

Peter Kreutzer Rotoman

BOOM goes the dynamite :-)

Howard Lynch LynchMob
Juan Soto Washington Nationals

What a nice win for the Nats after what had to be an excruciating wait.

Alex Patton Alex
Cristian Pache Atlanta Braves

Perfect bunt for a hit with a runner on first, one out and the score tied in the seventh inning.

Front-office nerds cringe. Fans rejoice.

Alex Patton Alex
Jonathan Lucroy Washington Nationals

But not available in PCL . . .
