Prospect Draft - How Did I do?

Postby bmd » Tue Jan 17, 2006 7:40 pm

I'm in a 10 team returning keeper league. We recently had a prospect draft in order to give each team 3 prospect keepers. The draft was 3 rounds, 10 picks in each round for a total of 30 picks. I had the #1 pick in the prospect draft and took Delmon Young. My other two picks were Brandon Wood and Justin Upton. How did I do? What is everyone's thoughts on these players and how soon should I expect them to contribute?

Thanks!

You probably got the top 3 minor league players. Nice work! Can you post the rest of the draft?

Holy shnikes! That would have been BA's top 3 had Upton signed in time.

great draft. 2 players that are primed for possible major league debuts this year plus probably the most hyped high school player in 20 years.

I've got the first pick in our prospect draft this year in my keeper. My fingers are itching to get that Justin Upton pick in.

no, of course not.

This is our 3rd year. Delmon has already been drafted, as have the vast majority of deserving prospects.

I'm just lucky enough to garner a high pick when someone of Upton's quality shows up as a newly eligible player to pick.

great job, I guess none of the other teams know anything about minor leaguers. Do you mind posting the draft?

My opinion mirrors that of the other posts.

You seem to be playing in a league full of owners with abosolutely no minor league knowledge, information or research.

How does 1 team get those prospects with 30 picks taking players off the board?

Good job, I hope it's a payout league so you can take all the other morons' money. Why don't these things ever happen to me? :~(
