10:30 - Welington “Beef” Castillo is solid
10:55 - Francisco Mejia and Willians Astudillo top-12 catchers?

20:05 - If Shaw qualifies, use him at 1B (but prefer him as 2B)
20:25 - Voit cleanup, Smoak safe power, Bauers power/speed, Peter Alonso
***PAY UP AT FIRST BASE***

21:40 - SECOND BASE (TERRIBLE)

Buying Jose Altuve rebound (I misspoke initially and said Abreu, sue me)
22:20 - Fading Javier Baez
22:50 - Merrifield is safe, fading Albies
23:30 - Fade Gleyber Torres, get Villar for speed, get Murphy for batting average and pop, but DRAFT TRAVIS SHAW EVERYWHERE
25:40 - Gennett, Odor, Cano
26:45 - Asdrubal Cabrera is underrated, Jeff McNeil is epic
27:30 - Kike Hernandez could hit 25+ bombs
27:55 - Adam Frazier, Ian Kinsler right now, Chad Pinder a nice stash

29:25 - SHORTSTOP (solid)

29:30 - Trea Turner is THE MAN. #noregrets
32:05 - Fade Baez for Machado or Story

35:15 - Elvis Andrus is underrated (better than Eduardo Escobar)
36:00 - DRAFT JORGE POLANCO, Marcus Semien the consolation

38:00 - THIRD BASE (solid)

Copping out, not drafting Jose Ramirez

40:00 - Kris Bryant is still an MVP-caliber player. Shoulder feels “perfect.” BUY.
40:30 - Fade Vlad Guerrero for Rendon or Suarez this year
41:00 - Fading Andujar and Carpenter, looking for Travis Shaw
41:30 - Josh Donaldson is still the BRINGER OF RAIN, JOE
42:00 - Justin Turner, Matt Chapman both really solid...Kang the new starter!
42:50 - Ian Happ, post-hype sleeper...Brian Anderson underrated
43:40 - Johan Camargo (Atlanta’s Kike Hernandez)

44:20 - OUTFIELD (dries up faster than you think)

Skipping over Yelich for Acuna

45:00 - Andrew Benintendi over Charlie Blackmon (I misspoke again, I think Blackmon could be down to SINGLE digits in steals in 2019)

PITCHING (quick thoughts)

54:00 - Skip Kershaw and MadBum, rock out the Flaherty-Taillon-Berrios tier
54:20 - Eovaldi, Glasnow, Musgrove, Heaney?, Dodgers pitching, Leclerc, Alvarado, Colome, Seranthony Dominguez

That’s a wrap!
