    Team Brightside
    1. (10) Joey Votto (Cin - 1B)
    2. (15) Prince Fielder (Det - 1B)
    3. (34) Hanley Ramirez (LAD - 3B,SS)
    4. (39) Jose Reyes (Tor - SS)
    5. (58) Madison Bumgarner (SF - SP)
    6. (63) Adam Wainwright (StL - SP)
    7. (82) Brandon Phillips (Cin - 2B)
    8. (87) Mat Latos (Cin - SP)
    9. (106) Alex Rios (CWS - OF)
    10. (111) Yovani Gallardo (Mil - SP)
    11. (130) Michael Bourn (Atl - OF)
    12. (135) Freddie Freeman (Atl - 1B)
    13. (154) Mariano Rivera (NYY - RP)I
    14. (159) Hiroki Kuroda (NYY - SP)
    15. (178) Josh Willingham (Min - OF)
    16. (183) Shane Victorino (Bos - OF)
    17. (202) Tom Wilhelmsen (Sea - RP)
    18. (207) A.J. Pierzynski (Tex - C)
    19. (226) Angel Pagan (SF - OF)
    20. (231) Homer Bailey (Cin - SP)
    21. (250) Glen Perkins (Min - RP)
    22. (255) Casey Janssen (Tor - RP)
    23. (274) Josh Beckett (LAD - SP)

    Notes:
    ** I know I drafted 1B with my first 2 picks, but I think Votto & Prince gives me quality hitting stats (especially power) and both fell a little in my draft.

    ** I don't have a sure-fire ace but I think the combination of Bumgarner, Wainwright, Latos, & Gallardo gives me a great core of quality SPs. I'm hoping any combination of Kuroda, Bailey, & Beckett can round up that position.

    ** I drafted 4 closers in the late rounds just to get quantity in saves.

    ** Didn't put too much emphasis on the OF position since I think that'll be the easiest position to take a flyer on a player.

    • I really dont think OF is as easy to fix as you think. OF is the only place to get that really valuable 5 stat players. You should reconsider the philosophy that OF is something to over-look.

      • Not saying that you should completely overlook the OF position, talent is talent regardless of where they play. I was merely making an emphasis on how much harder it is to fill other positions late in drafts which is why I covered my bases before drafting players in that position.

        Given the makeup of my roster, I feel like I got value picks in the OF position in the later rounds that can help complement the other players on my squad.

        Bourn gets me speed
        Rios is well-rounded
        Willingham gets me power

        Victorino & Pagan provide depth for when any of the 3 are out.

        Yes, none of them are 5 category guys but in H2H they all have roles and each help me in a few categories.
