I thought long and hard about this one but in the end decided not to throw [Adriano] on my team. After looking over the past 4 years of results, it’s solid. 9th, 2nd, 5th, 1st. Sure the win came in unison with floatergate, but for an event that’s basically a crapshoot, Adriano shows solid consistency. Unfortunately, Passion Picks doesn’t give a shit about consistency. And of course, his dream run is bound to end at some point. Maybe it’s unlikely to think it ends in Brazil, but I want a good title race and Adriano is currently in the way of that by doing too well.
