What a great topic, your most and least favorite draft slots... kinda like what gate you are in for a horse race...
I like bookend picks for only one reason, if I decide to chose one pitcher then hitter, and continue alternate for a while, it helps me with my discipline.
I like early picks because you get the cream of the crop, and if you pick in the top four, you get three of the top 28 players available, or five of the top fifty-two, depending how you look at it.
I do not like picks five through... let's say... ten. I always tend to see the last of the studs fall off the board early during that third round. It wouldn't be that bad THIS year, because starting pitching appears to be pretty deep.
Choice number eleven has to be the worst, you don't get a top ten pick, and how many times have those of us in the second or 11th hole seeN the bookend guy take not one but TWO of our sleepers????
It kills me sometimes. Good topic!
