That's our move -- and every time someone nominates a guy who's off our board, we're thrilled.  Except when it turns out they're right, and we're wrong.

It feels good to winnow down the list of players to a auctionable 168 hitters and 108 pitchers this early.  I haven't done that in a long time.

I've found a bunch who I know I won't pay market prices for, because my calculated price is way below what I expect the league to pay, but Stage 4 feels more like identifying the players you would pay a lot more than the market, but only have to pay one marginal dollar more.  I'm not sure I can find lot of them.  At least not upon first glance.

Spring training economics are way different than AFL. Presenters have to pay their discounted way, too. But I'm sure it will be a good time. I'll be watching from NYC.

I'd pay to watch the LABR.  But they high priced me out of the market.

I sure wish I was going to this. Seems a few seats can still be had.

Baseball HQ is transplanting First Pitch Arizona to Florida this year at the start of spring training (when most of the best prospects are playing catch with the big boys).
