My turn yet again in a minor league draft

Postby balmlb119 » Fri Apr 06, 2007 9:33 pm

In round one, I got Cameron Maybin. This time, I'm thinking pitcher, but there's still some pretty good offense on the board.

Here's the top pitchers on the board...

3-4, 6.04 ERA, 48 H, 29/22 K/BB in 44 2/3 IP for Houston

35. Scott Elbert - LHP Dodgers - DOB: 05/13/85 - ETA: Sept. 2007

Depending on the league, you may not want young guys who won't be up for another couple years.

Go with best available, don't worry too much about position.

Thanks everyone... I went with Fernando Martinez.

I now have two OFers in Maybin and Martinez (no offense, but so lazy to type F-MART) who very well could continue to be top 10 prospects the rest of the decade.
