Countdown to Doomsday (From My Experience) and How You Will Survive

Take a deep breath. Take it aaaallllll in. Right now, as I type this, all of our teams are at a standstill. The rosters of our teams are (mostly) as they were this year. I don’t do this often, but I’m going to share where I am coming from when the trades start tomorrow. I … Continue reading
