Josh Paley, filling in for the late-arriving Wise Guy (GeneM here) at the XFL draft this weekend at First Pitch Arizona, spent $90 on two of the first three players nominated.

I saw Josh talking to Gene the next day during a break and went over to eavesdrop.

Josh had followed his instructions to perfection.

First round shown under Austin Barnes.

The BABIP drop in conjunction with the slight increase in GB and LD rates. .311 BABIP on grounders last year.....245 this year....265 career.

Did I hear that right (Buck Martinez, as Blackmon grounds to second)? "When a lefthanded hitter, facing the shift, doesn't get the ball airborne, the average is .192."

Seems he could steal 20+ bags if he wanted to.  Guess he just didn't want to.  And that plus the BABIP/BA drop turns him into a good instead of great player.

Becomes the first to hit for the cycle in a game 162.

RE: Blackmon moving on from CF, a Denver Post article earlier said this:

Night after night, throughout the dog days of summer, Charlie Blackmon roams the vast, lonely prairie that is the Coors Field outfield. He patrols more territory than anybody this side of Walter Longmire, the sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyo.

My evaluation of him for pricing will depend greatly on if they move him to a corner or keep him in the wear-me-down-position of CF. For roto, I'd estimate him earning an extra $5 if they move him to a corner.

Nice start ... but since May 5 Charlie has been pretty pedestrian as a Roto hitter - .284 batting avg, 1 HR, 2 SB, 10 RBI.  The 21 runs scored is nice, and if you're playing points the 4 triples are sweet ... but over the last month (116 ABs) his value has plummeted.

Did the job again today batting third: homer, double, three driven in to propel the Rocks past the Nats. The homer just did prevail agains the wind on a nasty day in the nation's capital. With everyone wearing face masks on Jackie Robinson Day, you couldn't tell the players apart with a scorecard.

Blackmon's a smart man.  He read the tea leaves.  Odds of him getting that offer next winter?  No longer a sure thing, that much we know.  He takes the money and runs.
