      Now my head hurts:

      Darnell, Vargas, Beresford, Achter, D. Ortiz

      (I don't think they want to lose those guys, right?)

      Polanco, Kepler

      Knudson, Morales, Hauser, Watts (forgot him before)

      (you can't say FIVE this time, so hopefully there's progress here)

      I know one guy I didn't list for sure. Not sure how I could possibly skip over him. I will wait to see the new number though.

      I don't think he's responding to us any more Shane...

      Well I am going to assume a higher number than 7 this time around! Add Adrian Salcedo and that will get someone pretty far. I already paid, so I am now just curious. This became a game.

      I am not even sure I that could have possibly gone from 7 to 6 to 6! Goulik you have to have 9 of them, at least, right?

      Watts has to be one of them. I wasn't thinking about Roberts being needed because of the injuries, but there is no reason not to include him. So, I imagine swapping out Knudson for Watts could get you close.

      I guess I don't understand why Ortiz wouldn't be added and why Kepler but not Polanco? I would think that Polanco is more of a risk to be taken (neither will, though) and Polanco, at this point, would seem like he could move up faster than Kepler, so the three years doesn't matter as much with him.

      Anyway, goulik, you are going to get this. As long as some "observer" doesn't come in and swoop when we get to ten!

      Personally, I would add Ibarra and Watts. But I think by looking over my suggestions, Ibarra is not on it.

      goulik, I think it will be your first seven there, plus Roberts and Salcedo. Add in Watts and that's ten. Hopefully I am right about that.

      This is cracking me up. The only thing that would make it better is to discover that Seth is rolling a ten-sided die and posting the results.

      I know! It is way more difficult to figure this out this year.
