Let's take a break from the Greinke furor and get back to some good clean Dayton-bashing as a family. Round 1 had some shocking upsets and lots of excitement. I think a pattern is developing. If a player was good for any period of time, his acquisition doesn't look so bad, no matter how long his contract was, or how much money was wasted on him. Conversely if a player was very bad, but for only a very short period of time and then he was gone, it doesn't matter how little he was paid. Oh well, it's your tournament and your votes, so let's get back to it. We'll do half of Round 2 today, from the East and Midwest regions.
