BOTTOM DUMP - Round SIX: The Final Round! Topic

My Round 5 Houston team is struggling to stay alive in the NLCS, so it certainly won't be a shoo-in for them in the NL East of Round 6.  Now if the team were in more capable hands, it might be a different story ...

I remember the round 4 Giants team was a disappointment. I would have jumped on them with the 10th pick, thinking they had a 50/50 shot to win the division, but they finished in last. I am grateful I didn't pick until 13 or I never would have made it this far. Now I am nervous that this Giants team might underperform...starting to wish I had drafted the Cardinals instead.

I tried to convince myself to take the Yankees, and would have if Righetti was in a different era than Guidry. But it is hard to take a high pick on a team only in the hopes of being a wild card. So I chose the highly competitive NL, Problem is, Houston will be very tough to beat in the Playoffs for whoever has to play them.
Yeah, I pretty much saw no choice but to take the Yankees, since I was going to end up with a team in the AL East no matter what and to me the Yankees are pretty clearly the 2nd best AL team.  I'm taking a risky approach to dealing with the Yankees lack of good SPs after Guidry, which is so crazy it just might work well enough to sneak in for the wild card.  But even if they make the playoffs I think they'll be a pretty abysmal playoff team.  I just don't see anyone stopping those Red Sox from making it to the World Series.

Looks like CLWECW gets to pick 6th and barracuda3 goes 7th.

And with the 6th pick, I'll take the Los Angeles Dodgers.

I'm beyond shocked that one of my top 4 teams is I'm questioning how good they are, but at the same time, I think they have a great balance of solid starting pitching, great offense, and good relief pitching. Let's see if I'm crazy or a genuis.

This was a very very tough decision, but I'm going to go bold with the Minnesota Twins.
