A few weeks ago, my deep dynasty league had their monthly minor league auction which is the only time that true minor leaguers may be added to our rosters. Considering that there are 20 teams with up to 50 roster spots dedicated to minor leaguers, this is an important time.

Unless it’s Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, or another small handful of superstars, every batter is going to have his warts. It can be in the form of a lack of speed, power, too many strikeouts, not enough walks, a low batting average, or another few hundred aspects of the game.

When Bret approached me about helping him expand The Dynasty Guru to include dynasty football and basketball content, I was intrigued. I had just started my own blog (RIP “TheNostraThomas.com”) and in its short life, I really enjoyed the creative outlet and sharing my enthusiasm for the dynasty format with
