"Just eyeballing Average Draft Position numbers, my combinations at the turn could include Walker Buehler and Max Scherzer on the mound, or Mookie Betts and Rafael Devers at the plate. The first of those is more attractive to me, although it’s hardly certain I’d have the option to put that together. Drafts are snowflakes, but in one as tough as LABR, it’s hard to expect the talent with ADPs of 11 and 12 to be there at 15. These people don’t make many mistakes."
