Stunning. Det when from the starter that pitched best in 2012 playoffs to non-person. I’d much rather have Det than Sori on this team.

First time for me on this blog. Well done, Amanda!
Neat format.
MW passed on some talent like Treinan, Souza, etc.. Didn’t guess Sori.

I’d go to war with this group of young men and the former Marine leading them…..Ooorah!

Oh my! No Souza or Taylor! Oh my!

Please Matt, whatever you do, don’t let Soriano on the field.

I don’t see what Soriano’s role would be, nor do I see how Blake Treinen wouldn’t be better in whatever role that is. I also would have liked to see Michael Taylor on the roster, as it is good to have bench speed in the playoffs, but I’m not sure who I would have taken off to accommodate that move.
