    Worst pick in 1st/2nd

    utley, felix, hanley. yes, hanley. i dont care about position scarcity. i dont think in any league i have played in the champion has had hanley. but they always have a big ticket first baseman and atleast one ace. pick a top first baseman in the first round and lincecum in the second.

    • ?? Thats silly to associate Hanley with someone not winning the championship. I could probably find 1000 teams who had Albert Pujols who didnt win the Championship. I am sure countless teams have built a winner around Hanley. Its not about having the best at a certain position, its about having a solid roster that has a chance to win in all stats. And if the teams who did have Hanley didnt win the Championship its because they didnt find a subsitute when he got hurt.

      The player i would least have on my roster would be Utley and any of those pitchers but thats only because i don't believe in drafting a SP that early. As for Utley i think he wont be as productive as he has in the past and is on the downward slope of his career.

    • That's funny. I made it to a bunch of championships last year with Hanley as my SS, and guys like Butler or Dunn as my 1B.
