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)
Jonathan Lucroy - Brewers - FREE AGENT (No one claimed him)
David Holmberg - DBacks - FREE AGENT (Unclaimed)
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."
