    Just wondering if someone messed with the draft settings?

    Messed in what regard? Or do you mean player generation?

    I just seems that this draft is a tad deeper than last years. But it could just be me, and I'm prone to exaggeration.

    Yes, I adjusted the modifiers per BuddyG's exhaustive research. They needed to be tweaked anyway, but I didn't have time to test. I went with his suggestions. Ultimately, the hitter pool isn't that great, but the pitching pool looks deeper. Which we needed.

    Agreed. Though considering that the first 9 of my top ten prospects are all pitchers, I could have used some more hitters...

    I would've made the same pick, Wolvie.
    Probably would've taken him at #1.

    Gallacher looks like he may spend more time on the DL than off of it, even with our current injury settings.

    Biggest difference that stands out to me is improved defense.

    Having had a ton of picks in the last two drafts makes me very sad about now.

    Yep. It's like picking out a line to stand in at the grocery store. Whichever one you pick, it's always the wrong one.

    I could have sworn my preference list was slotted the other way between Gallacher and LaSpada...
