I am just posting the first 11 rounds. First glace I see some unusal things, Sizemore #4, Ortiz at 20, FROD in the second round, CWANG in the 9, Blalock in the 11th, Kinsler in the 6th....

I just posted this for some laughs, and so people can maybe learn something

Barry Bonds at 34 had me rolling


Was probably the same owner last year who at the end of the year wouldnt trade Barry for anyone other than Ryan Howard

Yes, this is the worst draft ever.

The more I look the even more pathetic it becomes. Webb and K-Rod in the 2nd round?

Yeah, any draft that has Stephan Drew over King Felix is a no-no.

That's what happens when you've got a bunch of "experts" with no money on the line. Seems like they all pick based on their personal list of sleeper candidates and who might come up big next year rather than taking the safer pick who is guaranteed to put up good numbers. They forget that the thing that makes sleeper picks so great is that you can take them later than their actual value.

This is another example of the absurdity of journalism. The dudes they are picking are probably the guys they wrote stories about last year or want to write stories about this year. Given the highly amusing nature of 'Fantasyland', they probably figure that will give them something else to talk about when they interview Joe Mauer.

Unfortunately their interview will likely read something along the lines of 'Joe, I knew you belonged in the first round because of position scarcity, but I'm getting my wazoo handed to me on a platter and think that I should be able to arrange to trade you. Who do you think that you are worth, Hafner and Teixiera or just Hafner and KRod? Anybody can DH you know...'

Is there anyone here that wouldn't dominate that league?
