No Chris Young or Brandon Wood????


I am going to assume that Kendrick, Drew, Delmon, and others were not drafted because they are in yahoo.

Wow, if those are anywhere close to what the actual prospects rankings would be, I'd be pretty happy because it would mean that in my 12 team league, i have 4 of the top 21 prospects (Pence, Garza, Gallardo, Bruce)

Wood was taken last year and I think Young was also. I'll have to check. I know he wasn't available. Delmon was taken in 2004, drew in 2005 and Kendrick was already picked by yahoo before the draft.

I like the Kevin Slowey selection. He is tearing up the lower minor leagues and should get a promotion to the next level by the end of this season or the start of next season for sure. Should be in the majors in the next two years for sure if he keeps up his current performances.

I think Team QC made two great picks in the 2nd Round with Slowey and Brandon Erbe. Depending on what the team's needs were at the time of his two selections back-to-back, he made two great pickups that should pay dividends in the near future. ;-D

word on the street is that Slowey doesn't have great stuff and will struggle against higher competition.

Kevin Slowey? He's not even a top 100 prospect. Sure, he's torn up the minors, but he doesn't have good enough stuff to be successful in the bigs. Great comp - Abe Alvarez. Tremendous at AAA, crap at MLB. A AAAA pitcher.
