#PackADailyCircus - Opening Day!

Hey everyone! Welcome to Opening Day for the 2014 Pack-A-Day Giveaway!

Before I bust open a pack of cards, let it be known that I am STILL working through the inaugural draft. Note for next season: Find another way to do the first draft! Turns out 20+ rounds of drafting by hand is a bit of a chore. I'm not whining about it. I just want you to know what the hold-up is - manual labor.

Our first pack of the season is 2014 Topps Series One - 10 cards per pack. As of right now, I might be able to tell you who owns what cards, I might not. We'll just have to see.

Jurickson Profar - Rangers Future Stars - RJBreezes
Max Scherzer - Tigers - Chonks
Chris Tillman - Orioles - FREE AGENT (No one claimed him)
 Jayson Werth - Nationals - Chonks
Jonathan Lucroy - Brewers - FREE AGENT (No one claimed him)
Cesar Cedeno - Astros Topps 75th - FREE AGENT (No one claimed him)
David Holmberg - DBacks - FREE AGENT (Unclaimed)
Coco Crisp - A's - Wilsons
Brandon League - Dodgers - FREE AGENT (Unclaimed)
Rex Brothers - Rockies - FREE AGENT (Unclaimed)

Congratulations to the Chonks for grabbing two cards! Congrats to the other managers that scored cards on opening day, too!

How did I know if cards were unclaimed? As I am working through the draft, I have open the spreadsheet everyone picked players. I searched for the names. If no one claimed the player, I knew it was a free agent. As for current owners, I pulled the draft to this point from OOTP and searched for each player. Had a player been in the spreadsheet but not drafted yet, I would mark that player as "Claimed but Undrafted."


  1. It's too bad no one claimed Cesar Cedeno. That is one sweet piece of cardboard. I'm pretty happy to see that I came away with Max Scherzer. That Jayson Werth card is popular with a lot of people, but Jayson Werth doesn't like it. He thinks he isn't featured as prominently as he should be.

  2. Wow, Tillman and Cedeno still available. Should be a good scrap for those guys this weekend!
