If you were OK trading away the rights to Gordon because you are so deep at 3B, then why in the world would you even consider grabbing Longoria? You sound strong there--go after a different position.

Well i would have either kept the pick and taken Matsuzaka or taken the Gordon trade, but hey no point in crying over spilt milk. McCutchen is still my 12th on my current prospect list and it looks like he will be in top 10 on the cafe rankings. At 6th you least should have either Longoria, Lincecum, Miller, Hochevar, or Garza left for you.

Because in the first round you take the best player available and if it's hochevar, garza or longoria, i probably go longoria, he has more upside in my mind than those other 2...but in the next month or so that could change, i'm still reading up on all of them.

I'm not convinced Matzusaka will stay healthy and I've already discussed Gordon...but like I said earlier it wasn't an easy decision and to tell the truth, the fact that the team with Gordon is quite dominant played into it...giving him Matzu lessens my chances of winning while giving him to the other team was more of a defensive move. He's very deep with position players and hurting with pitching depth.
