i was actually surprised that peoeple with the top picks are blocking players especially pitchers as you all have a chance to draft some of these players. if you think about the round someone like Maddux would go in, it favors those with the top picks as it will be an odd number round. Also i'm glad some owners are blocking cookies. i hate playing in open leagues because that's all it is. And some owners just put out the same team over and over again. to me that's not fun i like doing the research and finding players that are rarely used. Schwarze does a good job with the themes in this tournament, making them challenging to draft players and eliminating a team of all cookies. although you won't see me blocking any players as i do see value in 200k players, i'm glad others are.
