What are up ball boys and ball girls!? I wanted to show you my Fantasy Baseball teams and talk a little bit about what I am most excited about, who I got, where I am worried, and what I need to improve.

Biggest Strength: Roster versatility, Mountcastle, Lemahieu, Moustakas, France can each play multiple positions on my roster, which helps keep the lineup full daily.
Biggest weakness: I feel I am going to miss a lot of saves and stolen bases.
I should add Elvis Andrus, Cesar Hernandez, Garrett Hampson, and Manuel Margot if I feel a need for SB. I should look to add Archie Bradley, Amir Garrett, and Deigo Castillo for saves.
Team 3: Ball Boy Blog
Scoring: Yahoo Roto
Offensive: R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG
Pitching: IP, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP
Draft: Online Snake, pick 2/8

RP: Trevor Rosenthal, Alex Colome,
IR: Chris Sale
Biggest Strength: Roster versatility. With Marte, Bregman, Biggio, Muncy all options at multiple positions, it helps me have peace of mind to have quality players daily.
Biggest weakness: Relievers. I have two relievers; I have two good ones. A lot of the stats are based on starters which will get me more points in this format. I also need to cut ties with Sixto so I can add another player.
I will be dropping Kyle Lewis to pick up Dylan Moore because of the 2B, SS, 3B, OF options.
For Sixto, I am adding Logan Webb.
