What the hell happened to Dansby Swanson?

Sure, .277 BABIP ... but also a continuing uptrend in K rate.  Hard for a hitter to be successful striking out more than 30% of the time.

We had two instances where Phil Hertz couldn't make the bump bid and shouted out on the zoom call as the countdown ended. In both cases the bidding was reopened. I don't know what would have happened if someone mistyped a bid by $9. It didn't happen fortunately.

I was very aware of bumping the bidding early in the count, and many times when I bumped guys up three or four times with no one else bidding. Was everyone else going to let those guys go? But Swanson was just a weird pause while everyone loaded up and boom!

my biggest worry is typing "19" instead of "10" and so forth.

I did this in CBS with Sean Murphy (19 instead of 10) and Scott White was nice enough to pull it back.

I suspect Todd Zola wouldn't have been as nice about this in Tout on Saturday.

The best advice I can give in online rooms is don't wait for going twice. Have that number and the bid button ready to go. Chances are good if someone outbids you or if the bidding jumps $3-4 it's going to be over your price anyway.

That is a risk. I semi-accidentally stuck someone with Narvaez last year by bumping it up $3 right when he was doing a +1.

I don't think my typing skills are bad, but there's a big price for an error. At one point I tried to jump to $30 and typed $301, but caught it. 

Same thing in the nomination window. I'd type in $2 and it would add it to the $1 that was already there, making it 21. I caught all of those, too, but it slows you down.

I think I only did a couple of +1s in the AL. My strategy was to type in "20" in the box for a player where I had a bid limit between 20-29, and then quickly do keystrokes. But I'm also a fast typist, which worked to my advantage.

Yep - those plus one's can bite you.  First couple years I played CBS I fell prey, and still have to remind myself to hold a sec on guys getting close to my target bid.

I paid $23 for him today. The software is very fast, too fast to type prices in the box, so I thought I was hitting +1 at $17 and it jumped to $23 so many people beat me to it by a microsecond. My intention was to take him to $20, my real target was Corey Seager, who went for only $27. I'd rather have Seager at those prices, but I would have had to bid $28 and might still not got him. I think I can live with this.

Lost his arbitration case. $6 million instead of 6.7.

Surprising, considering he posted a 2.9 WAR in 60 games, compared to 1.5 in 129 the year before. OPS+ 110, compared to 89 the year before. Led the majors in Defensive Runs Saved for shortstops. Led the majors in Base Running.

I'm not saying the arbiter was deeply familiar with any of these metrics. I am saying he heard about them.
