DateQuestionAnswer
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)12 team mixed auction league with 4 minor league spots. Moncada goes for 16, Gallo 8, other top guys for similar cash. I call out "Tim Anderson, 1 buck" and crickets. Am i missing something, or is it the boring name? I bet if he was Arquimedes Caminero he would go for 10 bucks, right?
(Tim from Harlan, KY)
It's probably the fact that some of the non-BP sites don't have him ranked as highly. If your league doesn't read us, he could slip. (Mike Gianella)
2014-03-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Pretty certain my best reliever pick (16 rounds in) thus far is Arquimedes Caminero. Agree or disagree. Pretty sure I don't even need to show the rest of my roster, because come on: look at that name!
(Andy from Chicago)
He's a cross between a muscle car and the guy who explained buoyancy. Your best pick by far. (Ben Lindbergh)
