    My Mock Draft

    Auction, 12 teams, H2H. I had a glitch at the start so the computer autodrafted Braun at $55. I was intending to not spend more than $50 on any one player, but at least it's Ryan Braun. BTW, there were a lot of crazy overpays in this draft with Mike Trout going for $60. Another frustration was most of the managers spent all their money at the top of the draft then bailed putting the rest of the draft on autodraft. Anyway, here it is:

    C Wilin Rosario $11
    1B Adam LaRoche $5
    2B Rickie Weeks $9
    3B Brett Lawrie $21
    SS Derek Jeter $5
    OF Braun $55
    OF Yoenis Cespedes $24
    OF Shane Victorino $1*
    UT Jose Altuve $13
    UT Josh Willingham $9
    SP Felix Hernandez $34
    SP Zack Grienke $24
    RP Addison Reed $2
    RP Glen Perkins $1
    P Jason Grilli $1
    P Kenley Jansen $1
    P Tim Lincecum $6
    P Jeff Samardzija $9
    BN Doug Fister $7
    BN Brett Anderson $3
    BN Matt Harvey $4
    BN Homer Bailey $1
    BN Gerrit Cole $1


    Usually someone fries me for not having position players on my bench. I prefer to use my bench to extend my SP rotation. It's easy enough to find replacement position players on the FA market during the season.

    *I nominated Victorino thinking someone else would spend at least $2 on him. I ended up with him at $1. He did steal 39 bases last year.

    I may have overpaid for Lawrie and Altuve. I have to admit I forgot I already had a 2B when I took Altuve, but I do like his combination of BA and SB's.

    I ended up with $6 left over

    My real life fantasy team is a 10 team league but has 26 roster spots, so the total number of players drafted is only 16 more in this mock draft, but there is a total of $540 extra available to spend, so prices may be higher in this mock draft than in my real one.

    Flame away!
