My roster:

C - Buster Posey (4.10)
C - Alex Avila (27.3)
1B - Jose Abreu (7.3)
3B - Evan Longoria (2.10)
CI - Kyle Seager (11.3)
2B - Martin Prado (12.10)
SS - Jonathan Villar (16.10)
MI - Brad Miller (17.3)
OF - Andrew McCutchen (1.3)
OF - Carlos Gomez (3.3)
OF - Desmond Jennings (8.10)
OF - Austin Jackson (14.10)
OF - Josh Reddick (18.10)
U - Colby Rasmus (20.10)
P - David Price (5.3)
P - James Shields (6.10)
P - David Robertson (9.3)
P - Hyun-Jin Ryu (10.10)
P - Hiroki Kuroda (13.3)
P - John Axford (15.10)
P - Corey Kluber (19.3)
P - Rick Porcello (21.3)
P - Jose Quintana (22.10)
R - Kelly Johnson (23.3)
R - Anthony Rendon (24.10)
R - Wily Peralta (25.10
R - Chad Qualls (26.3)
R - Jonathon Niese (28.10)
R - Kendrys Morales (29.3)
R - Gregory Polanco (30.10)

I missed out a few targets later in the draft, including Chris Johnson who I have been able to safely get in every draft I've done this season. Now that he is hitting cleanup, the RBI and average potential are there and I ended up with power upside but average downside in Reddick and Rasmus around him. Oh well. The fact he went 226th after starting the season with an ADP in the 300's makes me happy.

What I Think You Should Know About The USMNT
Needless to say, it's been a great World Cup thus far. The USMNT having some success would be awesome.
La-La-La-L.A. Gets Lord Stanley!
Just a few things that caught my eye:
  • Alec Martinez's Cup-winning goal celebration? # priceless. I wonder if he'll ever get his gloves back.
  • Henrik Lundqvist stopped the 50th shot of the game. He couldn't stop the 51st. #connsmythe if the Rangers had found a way to come back in this series.
Do Analytics Take the Fun Out of Sports?
Apparently that was the topic of one of the presentations at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston last week. The presenter, Yale's Edward Tufte, opined:

Don't let people tell you analytics are reductionist and take the joy out of sports. They mostly just take the stupidity out of sports.

Is he right?

The Problem With Drafting Billy Hamilton
Billy Hamilton went for $28 in the NL LABR auction this past weekend. I discussed this with a fellow writer who participates in Tout Wars with me later this month and we discussed the problem with investing heavily into Hamilton.
