"13. Bo Bichette

...who I thought might not be there for me at 1.13. This is a bet on Bichette being a durable five-category star at shortstop after two seasons in which he missed just six games total, averaged a .294 BA with 106 runs, 98 RBI, 26 homers and 19 steals. He’ll be 25 in 2023, and the Blue Jays have made changes to the fences at Rogers Centre that should make it even more hitter-friendly. I was very, very happy to get him here."
