Don't be shocked if Detroit lets both Bonderman and Maroth get there. Detroit will probably lose close to 40 more games this season (putting them in contention with the '62 Mets), and management is pretty committed to getting those young arms out there. The only reason they might not is if they grow concerned over IP. Of course, this would represent some thoughtfulness on management's part, so don't hold your breath.
This string got me thinking. It might be fun to have a bizarro roto league, where you try and have the worst stats. Lowest batting average, most losses, highest ERA and WHIP, etc. You'd have to impose some kind of minimum ABs and IPs criteria, but that wouldn't be too hard to configure.
The only question is, would Adam Dunn get drafted higher in a regular roto league or a bizarro roto league?
