    Good work on these…I had to fill out my choice with a friend recently…we do it every year and I totally forgot about Park, whom I drafted…I keep forgetting Hidecki Matsui’s are eligible…I chose Berrios over the obvious choices of players who are already here and playing…Does Gallo still qualify?…Just curious…And I guess we can remove Kim from the equation…I don’t even know his status currently…Insubordinate list ;-)…
