ANDY BEHRENS: Second pick. Not bad. You know, historically this is a great spot to be. You really just want to be in the front half of the first round. Last season, the second overall pick produced the fifth-most fantasy winners in Yahoo leagues. That's pretty good.

This year, there's no real consensus number one overall player. In an average draft, you're getting Mookie Betts here. That's fantastic. Mookie's a 30-30 guy. He hits .290 basically every season. He's got MVP potential. He's gonna score a million runs. He's gonna drive in a zillion runs.

It's a great lineup. We love everything about that pick. It is a stellar way to begin your draft. Then you're gonna come back around in round two, round three, you'll get yourself an ace starter.

Maybe it's Kershaw. Maybe you'll double up on the Dodgers. That's kind of fun. Oh, that is a fantastic way to begin a draft. Don't blow this thing.
