Hi again, live from the Tout Drafts here in NYC. We'll be picking back up where we left off this afternoon. The Mixed League has been a hot topic of discussion here, as they raised the amount of players from 12 to 17. The experts were not sure what to expect in the opening rounds, but when Jose Reyes jumped off the board for $55 to Doug Dennis, things got interesting. The person sitting to the left of me turned and said, "Was that fifty-five? As in five-five, fifty five?!"
It didn't stop there, with Doug also grabbing David Wright for $50. JP Kastner from CREATiVESPORTS had a different approach, targeting values of Pablo Sandoval ($9), Francisco Cordero ($13), and Mike Cameron ($12). After the first break, he positioned himself well with over $140 of his budget still available (good for 2nd highest at the time). This way he can continue to be patient and seek what he feels are value guys.
The AL results from this morning have been posted on the Tout Wars website. Head over there to check those out.
