    Eric Karabell

    The presumed definition of a Do Not Draft list means, well, do not draft these players, but let's get this out of the way up front: I don't really mean that. What I mean is that when one secures players through a draft or an auction, the main goal sh...

  4. Can Marlon Byrd's power surge continue?

    Eric Karabell

    Eric Karabell

    I'm certain I've said and written this before, but there's nothing quite like an auction draft, no matter the sport. Sure, standard drafts are fun and generally predictable, but in an auction, it doesn't matter which pick you are,...
