Mockdraftcentral 2007 Expert Draft

In the sense of having a flexible bench I would agree that that is true. But other than building a well-rounded bench, injuries are impossible to account for on draft day and I think it is a mistake to adjust the value of the UT spot because of injuries that might happen. I think I'd much prefer Hafner manning my UT spot than having the extra flexibility to reorganize my starting lineup.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

For a healthy team it is overrated. For an injury riddled team, flexibility is a must.


Depends on league setup... with no MI or CI and only one Util spot, flexibility is important. Otherwise during the draft, you have to pick based on filling needs instead of value... or plan to trade, where you'll probably not get fair value either (since everyone would know your situation).

Here are the results from the new one last night: http://www.mockdraftcentral.com/draft_grid.jsp?id=25376

Seems much better than the previous one, but what struck me as odd was that several good players went undrafted - Brian Roberts, Barry Bonds, etc., and some that were descent but normally part of squads, such as Orlando Cabrera and such.

Brian Roberts went in the 8th round....this is a pretty good mock draft....I especially like the Vlad pick with the 15th selection. Wow!

The fact they have MCab so low makes this draft pointless.

Perhaps it was a draft of the expert interns?
