Thank you to everyone who pushed me to go hard this year. I always invest so much time in this league, and making in the top 3 alone is always a satisfying feeling, so huge props to Brodie and Zak for making it with me on the podium! For me, winning this league is the ultimate in terms of fantasy joy.

To be honest, I enjoy this more than the War League and Fastbreak League (even though I haven't won this one yet). The stat tracking in baseball is just way more challenging and fun, imo. Although it was a shortened season, the drain felt the same. For much of the season it was a challenging hunt to get to the top spot. Brodie, I got mad respect for that team you built... I just don't like how tight a grip you have on your players. Trade with me! haha. I got real nervous when we were all tied up with about 2 weeks to go. Shout out to the Hawaiian Gods for listening to my Big Kahuna chants!

To Zak, Grizz, KCJ, Gonzo, and Jug your activity on the FA pick up wire always kept me on my toes! I always hated it when I went to search for a name only to see that you guys had already swept them up! I should include Cain here too because he had some of those hits, even though he didn't have a lot of action.

Cain, I respect your ways. Took a step back to take 2 steps forward. Your young guns are a legitimate future threat.

Guess, life got in the way for Ninja Chimps... will he be returning?

mqt, wassup bro? Normally we at least have some back and forth trade talk, but I never heard back from you this year. You good bro?

Good having ya here fenikz. You're sensitive as hell, but at least you're a gamer. I can respect that.

KCJ, still waiting for you to step your game up, but the main thing is we kept our yearly trade tradition alive!

Grizz, you're a silent killer... your team is always sneaky good, but actually not really sneaky because you know your stuff. If your bats ever catch up, we could all be in trouble.

Juggy, you have a lot of good players... some of my favorites! But you hang on to too many bad players for too long.

Zak, you're an angry troll, but you're OUR angry troll and we love you for it. Damn you for adding Cronenworth, and for not trading Nelson Cruz for the old man that he is.

Gonzo, always a pleasure talking trade with ya. You get me. I may start off with low offers, but by the end of discussions, I do pretty much bend over if I want a guy bad enough. There was a whole bunch we didn't get done, but the ones that we did worked. I might've been bitter if I didn't win, but because I did, the trades were worth it. I really did have regrets on letting Trea Turner and Tyler Glasnow go, but Trevor Bauer turned things around after a couple of bad starts and improving my pitching was a the right move for me to win this year.

Trades don't always work out, but it really raises the fun factor for me. There were 13 total trades made by everyone this year (counting those made before the draft). They are always risky, but I think for the first time, we didn't have a trade go down between anyone where there was any drama over the value of the trade. I hope to see more trades in the future! Take a risk!

Brodie, I think it's been 15 years playing with you now. You're one of the originals right? You used to be nobody to worry about and now you're an irritating tough shit. Time is going by too fast. Live is crazy.

Thinking about it, so many things have happened in the last 15 years and I must say, it's been great having all of you guys around during all hours of the day as an escape from reality. Whether needing a mental break during my work day or sitting down watching tv from my laptop or checking on my phone on errands, various wait times, or from all over the world, I love this forum family. We know how each other thinks, but we don't really know a lot about each other's lives. Thanks for the fun and thank you for putting up with my weaknesses. Thank you for the Congrats. I'll take a min to enjoy it.

As a winning toast, here's to recapping my post draft thoughts!

Round 1

1. mqt - Corey Seager, SS - Tanking wasn't as rewarding this year
2. Zak- Zack Wheeler, SP - Should've told me you liked him this much
3. Gonzo - Josh Donaldson, 3B - Who didn't keep him? When he's healthy, he works.
4. Fenikz- Gary Sanchez, C - As expected, he's already hurting
5. Jughead- Mallex Smith, OF - Overpay for steals at the cost of hurting OBPOuch
6. KCJ- Paul DeJong, SS - I get it, but not my cup of teaActually, I don't get it

8. Grizz- Lance Lynn, SP - No problems hereTotally delivered

7. Jughead- Madison Bumgarner, SP - Best days are behind him
8. Fenikz- David Dahl, OF - Will he meet expectations?
9. Gonzo- Bryan Reynolds, OF - I can dig it, but wasn't upset like others
10. Zak- Brandon Lowe, 2B - Picked too high imoReal smooth pick right here
11. mqt- Hansel Robles, RP - Nice one

Round 3:

1. mqt- Giovanny Gallegos, RP - I appreciate the thought process here

Congrats D. Nice write up. And I will be keeping Voit. He really cleaned up his body when they were shut down for COVID.
