Since STLBlues still has a pick pending from their time limit delay, by rule since they now have another pick up, it gets auto skipped. So Minger is on the clock. STLBlues can just make 2 picks when they get back online.

Little update: Benchwarmer Waiver Week

It's looking like we'll probably be finished with the draft Friday or Saturday. Hopefully Friday! Once the draft gets finalized on yahoo, our Benchwarmer Waiver Week will take place. We have 21 roster spots. That isn't counting IL spots (3) or NA spots (2). So on average, everyone should have about 3 spots to fill. Some more or less if you made trades or what not. The waiver order will go the inverse of the regular season standing slots from last year. Any teams with 12 hour time limit delays during the draft go toward the end of the line. At the end of the benchwarmer waiver week, I will reset the waivers to the initial ordering. So there is no benefit trying to not use your waiver claims during the Benchwarmer Waiver Week. If a team doesn't make any free agent moves during the Benchwarmer Waiver Week, then they will be slotted at the end of the waiver priority for the regular season. Once the draft is officially over I'll post again what the exact order is and the date players will clear waivers.

Good job with the pace of the draft everyone! It's gone pretty smoothly!

SHOCKINGLY, Flik is over his time limit. Barnette is up. If Flik hasn't picked by 6pm CST, then he is just going to get some grizzled veteran auto-drafted for him.

Figures, I missed this yesterday. Story of my March so far.

That said, let's not be an ass and hold this up much longer. Who do I have on my team.

C -
1 - Renato Nunez
2 - Gavin Lux
3 - Rafael Devers
S - Fernando Tatis
O - Juan Soto
O - Victor Robles
O - Austin Meadows
U - Andrew Benintendi
P - Sonny Gray
P - Madison Bumgarner
P - Marcus Stroman
R - Archie Bradley
R - Hansel Robles
U - Kyle Hendricks
U - Mike Minor
B - Cavan Biggio (2/O)
B - Scott Kingery (2/3/S/O)

That's more or less my team right now. Hm. 3 benches to fill and a catcher slot.

So I'll do the smart thing here.

Last player of the draft is 1B Evan White from the Seattle Mariners. Have fun with the waivers everyone.

Okay! Draft has been finalized on yahoo.

BENCHWARMER WAIVERS
Free Agents come off waivers the morning of March 10th! I bumped waivers an extra day initially to give everyone plenty of time to figure out their waivers situation.

Waiver Order
#1 Thrasher
#2 Chewbie
#3 DBarnette
#4 Squint
#5 Treble
#6 Dirt
#7 Harley
#8 Krankor
#9 Steak
#10 O.G.
#11 DCBild [1 Delay]
#12 STLBlues [1 Delay]
#13 Minger [2 Delays]
#14 Flik [3 Delays]

As stated the other day, there is no benefit to not using your waiver priority during this Benchwarmer Waiver Week in hopes that it'll make your number higher for during the regular season. On March 16th the Benchwarmer Week will be over, the the waiver priority numbers will be reset to this initial order. If a team hasn't added any players to their roster by the end of the Benchwarmer Week, then their waiver priority number will go to the bottom of the list.

Good luck and have fun everyone!

Have to hope I can ride out the injuries to Sale/Clevinger early in the season and just stay afloat pitching wise while my hitting carries my squad.

I'd have preferred Josh James as my first Benchwarmer pick, but we'll bring in from parts unknown KWANG! instead.

I'm pretty optimistic about my squad. No major injuries. Factored in the oft injured Springer & Judge in my plans. I like the value of Dozier & Renfroe as fill-ins plus Khris Davis extremely late makes a perfect Utility fill-in. I'm fairly optimistic!

C Francisco Mejia
1b Anthony Rizzo
2b/SS Gleyber Torres
SS Francisco Lindor
3b Nolan Arenado
OF Aaron Judge
OF George Springer
OF Hunter Renfroe
1b/3b/OF Hunter Dozier
OF Domingo Santana
UTL Khris Davis
SP Shane Bieber
SP Luis Castillo
SP Tyler Glasnow
SP Brandon Woodruff
SP Lance Lynn
P Kwang-Hyun Kim
RP Liam Hendriks
RP Edwin Diaz
RP Brandon Workman

C - Jorge Alfaro
1 - Renato Nunez
2 - Gavin Lux
3 - Rafael Devers
S - Fernando Tatis
O - Juan Soto
O - Austin Meadows
O - Victor Robles
U - Andrew Benintendi
P - Sonny Gray
P - Marcus Stroman
P - Madison Bumgarner
R - Hansel Robles
R - Archie Bradley
U - Kyle Hendricks
U - Ryan Presley
B - Cavan Biggio (2/O)
B - Scott Kingery (2/3/S/O)
B - Evan White (1)
B - Dakota Hudson (P)
B - Mike Minor (P)

I think my team can be a good squad this year. 6 guys who will definitely get averaged around 15 QS, 3.19 ERA, WHIP of 1.18, and 142 Ks. It is all guys who put in work, without a true stud (though Stroman maybe can get there), but hey, I'll take solid numbers over praying that star pitchers show up for me (and they NEVER do). Got two solid options for saves, one of the options at holds, and I think things will work out here.

Offensively, this team could be going miles. I got Soto, Robles and Meadows returning. Tatis had great numbers for only 330ish ABs. Gavin Lux could be a huge star in the wings. If he's not ready to go, I've got Cavan to fill in (who could fill in somehwere). Somehow, Scott Kingery was still available for me, so I got a starting position player who's qualified for almost all the infield positions. I might have my next true 1B in Evan White, who's been tabbed as this year's starter and I don't have to worry about him defensively, because he's already solid there. If Benintendi shows up from 2018 that gives me another solid outfield option. Rafael Devers will do his Devers thing, so I'm not worried there. I mean, sure catcher is a problem, but Alfaro puts up at least good enough numbers there that I won't get crushed.

Overall, I like my chances to help other teams out in the near future. After all, I'm everyone's farm team.

We're about 10 days past when I said I was going to reset waivers for the regular season. So I'm doing it now. Like I said in a prior post, its make moves or lose your spot in line. We had 3 teams not make any adds, so they'll go to the bottom of the list. This is the last waiver order reset for the season. It's a rolling list so keep that in mind.

Waiver Order
#1 Chewbie
#2 DBarnette
#3 Squint
#4 Treble
#5 Dirt
#6 Harley
#7 Krankor
#8 Steak
#9 O.G.
#10 DCBild
#11 Flik
#12 Thrasher [No Benchwarmer Moves]
#13 STLBlues [No Benchwarmer Moves]
#14 Minger [No Benchwarmer Moves]
