Post your final two picks in the draft

Postby Dr.DooM » Fri Mar 30, 2007 8:51 am

The draft is almost over but how players determine the final two picks can be interesting. Do you go for the "Hail Mary" approach and choose high-risk or injured/injury-risk players? Do you go with mediocre relievers or bench players with positional flexibility? Or do go with rookies/young unknowns with a big upside?

Personally I went with a combination of high-risk and upside: Garret Anderson and Josh Barfield. What were your picks and why?

I always use my last pick for a C.
For my 2nd to last pick it's usually an RP if there are decent ones left, or a young prospect.

In my 16-teamer I went with a promising youngster (Kevin Kouzmanoff at 340) and a High-Risk SP (Zack Greinke at 365).

12-team

22. (259) Ian Kinsler 2B
23. (270) Garret Anderson LF

...but I already dropped Anderson for Jorge Julio after the trade to the Marlins (I'm short on closers).
