      • VOLDEMORT:

        1. (5) Adrián González(Bos - 1B)-excellent pick, could be MVP.
        2. (28) Tim Lincecum(SF - SP)-as steady as they come.
        3. (37) Desmond Jennings(TB - OF)-tremendous potential. seem a big high though.
        4. (60) Brian McCann(Atl - C)-McCann is good but I don't advise taking a catcher this early. too much volatility.
        5. (69) Matt Cain(SF - SP)-solid solid solid.
        6. (92) Carl Crawford(Bos - OF)-Not good. He is a mess, will bat sixth, and is starting year on DL.
        7. (101) Tommy Hanson(Atl - SP)-concussion and shoulder issues a big worry.
        8. (124) David Freese(StL - 3B)-the most overrated player in this year's draft. already 29 with limited power and injury-prone.
        9. (133) Alexei Ramírez(CWS - SS)-boring. would have preferred upside play with a Dee Gordon.
        10. (156) Jason Motte(StL - RP)-will be good.
        11. (165) Jeremy Hellickson(TB - SP)-way overrated. check out my write up of him on the DRAFT BUSTS page.
        12. (188) Aroldis Chapman(Cin - RP)-intriguing with the K's. I gather this is a deep league.
        13. (197) Kyle Farnsworth(TB - RP)-not sure he can be as shockingly effective again.
        14. (220) Colby Rasmus(Tor - OF)-nice landing spot for this talented hitter.
        15. (229) Sergio Romo(SF - RP)-why?
        16. (252) Grant Balfour(Oak - RP)-Brian Fuentes will close.
        17. (261) Addison Reed(CWS - RP)-nice speculative add.
        18. (284) Víctor Martínez(Det - C,1B)-out for season, cut him.
        19. (293) Gordon Beckham(CWS - 2B)-cut him too. garbage.
        20. (316) Brett Anderson(Oak - SP)-out until July. cut him.
        21. (325) Brad Peacock(Oak - SP)-intriguing.
        22. (348) Randall Delgado(Atl - SP)-won't contribute much.
        23. (357) Rajai Davis(Tor - OF)-wont play enough.
        24. (380) Leonys Martín(Tex - OF)-same thing.
        25. (389) Greg Holland(KC - RP)-like his potential.
        26. (412) Trevor Bauer(Ari - SP)-basically the rest of these guys are speculative adds.
        27. (421) Gary Brown(SF - OF)
        28. (444) Tyler Skaggs(Ari - SP)
        29. (453) Martín Pérez(Tex - SP)
        30. (476) Starling Marte(Pit - OF)

        the pitching is good and the hitting solid but your third base is an issue. also you got injury prone players up and down the lineup so be careful there.

    • Hey dude read your blog. Liked it. Especially stuff about zobrist, Chris sale, butler. Some reason people talk them down. Nice to read someone agrees

      Have question. In first three rounds which 3 picks would you rather have?

      Option 1

      1 round Adrian Gonzalez
      2 round Roy halladay
      3 round Matt Holliday

      Option 2

      1 round Adrian Gonzalez
      2 round Dustin pedroia
      3 round c c sabathia

      Option 3

      1 round Adrian Gonzalez
      2 round dustin pedroia
      3 round Matt holliday

      I realize it depends on what the rest of draft looks like, I like Gonzalez for solid peace of mind. Pedroia because he contributes to 5 categories, and Matt Holliday because I feel he makes teams win. Pitching however I like drafting an ace early to have a solid #1 but am considering rounds 2 and 3 drafting pitchers.

      Any thoughts? Thanks

    • Mike,

      I have the 8th pick in an 8-team h2h league (meaning I will have 8th and 9th picks). I am fairly certain that Prince Fielder, Adrian Gonzales, and Joey Votto will be there at the 8th pick. If so, which of these 3 should I grab with the 8th pick? I want to grab one of these 2nd-tier 1B before I am stuck with starting a Michael Younh-type player at a power position.I am then planning on grabbing Reyes or Hanley with the 9th pick to lock up the SS position. What are your thoughts?
