Hey, a fellow Lithuanian! Let's finish in the top two! Lithuanian pride! Actually, I never knew anyone with such a similar last name to mine. Good times.NickPass wrote:I appreciate the feedback Brian. Is it safe to assume that the name Oakchunas is Lithuanian? My mother's maiden name is Balchunas, so my guess is that you are as well. As Ryan knows, playing in a league with BA is foreign to me. The league I've been in for years always uses .OBP (guys like Adam Dunn and Swisher get a nice bump because of it). We'll see what happens once we get underway.
Actually, I'm a Yankees fan. The Teagarden/Salty picks weren't intentional. I picked Salty as a 2nd C, then read afterwards that he might still not be healthy from offseason surgery (hence Teagarden shortly afterwards). As for Feldman, a guy with 17 wins is tough to pass on that late in the draft.
I disagree on Latos. The Pads are going to be brutal and they'll need to give their fans any reason to show up to the ballpark. He'll be one of them. Still, I can see him being a matchups guy initially and going Wells/Feldman/Norris to round out the rotation.
I actually agree that Latos WILL BE the guy. It's just that it's still an unknown at this point. I don't like unknowns.
