Sauceda's Slants: Folding Aces

There are very few Fantasy experiences more pleasing than hitting on a late-round sleeper or sneaky waiver acquisition — not unlike the experience of finding a twenty-dollar bill in your pocket that you had completely forgotten.

Sauceda's Slants - Take Action on Early Season Trends

Someone recently DM’d me on Twitter asking where I’ve been. Where had my writing gone? I must admit, I was flattered that someone enjoyed my work and was curious why we hadn’t seen more. So what?
