3 of the top 10 minor leaguers around easily. I would have to say that you had a great draft for sure. ;-D ;-D

This is my first season with this team. I took over the last place team. I had the first pick in each round so I had pick #1, #11, #21. This is how the draft went:

1. OF Delmon Young
2. SS Sean Rodriguez
3. RP Bobby Jenks
4. SP Alay Soler
5. 3B Andy Marte
6. 1B Prince Fielder
7. SP Francisco Liriano
8. SS Stephen Drew
9. OF Jeremy Hermida
10. SP Anthony Reyes
11. SS Brandon Wood
12. 1B Mike Carp
13. C Jeff Mathis
14. 3B Ryan Zimmerman
15. SP Yusmeiro Petit
16. C Kenji Johjima
17. SP Justin Verlander
18. 2B Ian Kinsler
19. OF Lastings Milledge
20. SP Chad Billingsley
21. SS Justin Upton
22. 1B Conor Jackson
23. OF Chris Duffy
24. OF Adam Stern
25. SP Jered Weaver
26. SP Jamie Shields
27. 1B Mike Jacobs
28. SP Cole Hamels
29. SP Paul Maholm
30. SP Philip Hughes

As you can see the league allowed guys like Jenks and Johjima to be drafted as prospects. If you guys are correct and Young, Wood, and Upton live up to their potential, then I should be in good shape for years to come!

There are a lot more guys in your prospect draft that have Major league experience than I think most of us thought. Having said that; Sean Rodriguez? SEAN RODRIGUEZ? He spent 2005 in lo A at 20 and was decent. Number two overall is a huge stretch. How does he get picked before Wood?

Don't forget about Drew, he may bump Upton out of the ss position.

I was listening to fantasy focus on XM (the greatest invention known to man) and they said the exact same thing, that upton could be a outfielder or second baseman. But that they are grooming both at ss.
