8/14/2022 Padres Super Team......sheikyerboudi
I have two CBS Fantasy teams and he was stashed in both (not by me) along with DeGrom - looks like DeGrom is paying off. Unfortunately, I got very little from holding onto Chris Bryant - are the Rockies the dumbest organization in MLB? Or is Boros just that good?
