Free Agency: It’s not “all good”

As I hope you’ve noticed, we’ve covered the key (and some not-so-very key) free agent moves up until this point. I’ve been busy following and analyzing all of that, so I haven’t done much blogging. Things are slowing down, so I have a topic to cover here.

    I recently finished up a #MFL10 draft that I put together with some of my followers on Twitter, a practice that Tom Brolley, Matt Camp, and I will be continuing throughout the summer with our friends at MyFantasyLeague.
