Given your past WC debacles, this is some bold talk since you likely would have just picked a bullpen catcher or something if you had remembered to pick.

Oh, my WC choices over the years look like they were picked by the Cleveland Browns front office.

And it's not bold....I'm seriously shocked that I'm not already in the bottom 3 people considering I picked a WC who immediately got released by his team

Wow, Josh... pretty bold. You better hope the injury bug doesn't strike until post-ASB.
Done and done x2. This is both your first and second transactions of the first half.
You have zero remaining.

I learned my lesson from years past by not panicking on players having slow starts. It's paying off, but I can't tolerate garbage.
