Let's hope not...if so, please identify yourself so I won't listen to your advice. :-D

Isn't life funny? Some of those people actually get paid to write about fantasy baseball, while around here great advice is free. What a world we live in.....

Peter King, he of the Grady Sizemore at #5 pick, is SI's NFL writer, so it's not like he's an FLB expert. Still, man alive, that was ugly...

Finally, someone noticed this. It's likely that most of the other drafters are either the experts in Golf, Olympics, or competitive chess. Since I barely recognize any of those people in regards to baseball (no Verducci?) I think this was a draft done at a bar on a Friday.

Ambrosius took Jeter followed by Rollins? I'm sure he has a reason....

Looking at the teams, I'd say James Quintong's team doesn't look too shabby.

Man, I'm embarrassed to share my name with him after seeing that draft.

However, as bad as the draft is, there is one nice touch which would be good to see replicated in other 'Expert Drafts'. It was interesting to see each person's analysis of their own draft, including each individual pick. Although some of the reasons for the picks were not exactly sound, at least they had the guts to say why they made their picks.
