I'm stunned to see Pujols go first.

Can't fault MBuser or grabbing Johan, but darn it! I wanted him at #4! But I feel comfortable with Soriano in Chi-town and Pinella being uberaggressive on the basepaths.

that's why i was happy to be at #2. he will be drafted up and down the first round depending on the league, but i know that he's the guy i wanted

Chase Utley was the target in the first round. My #6 Player was still on the board but I was uncomfortable taking him. I dropped down a couple to take a player with more upside....I hope.

Wasn't really crazy about taking a 1st baseman in the first round because it is such a deep position but i'm interested in seeing how my team looks with Pujols. (I've never been fortunate enough to own him)

I don't agree with wasting a first round pick on such a deep position, even if it is Pujols. I'll give you Vlad for him. :-D

The drop off from Utley to the rest of the field at 2b makes him a plausable pick.

I guess it depends on how important position scarcity is to you.


fyi - Ortiz was ranked 6th in my hitter rankings (7th overall). I took him last year I think with the 8th pick.

yeah i hear ya...im just a proponent of taking the best available player for awhile, thats all..

oooooooooo first surprise pick.vlad going 10th is a risky manuever. havent seen that done too much.
