[quote="Chrisy Moltisanti"]I thought Iwamura would be a good player overall. It was between targeting MCab,Chad Tracy and him for me. All were good picks relative to ADP imo.

Hudson and Kinsler were my 2B guys, Hudson is hot but, preseason I expected top six 2B value from him. :-?

Byrnes has shown he can hit for power and run, a little hot streak in a hitters park isn't surprising to me.

Granderson was high on my list for 4th OFer. He hasn't stolen enough bases to surprise.

I drafted Jacobs with my last pick last year in 12 teamers. Now he does this :-°

Everyone has expected Upton to do something sometime in this season or next, shouldn't be him unless he goes 25/40.

For me Geoff is the surprise, but then again who has ever been as streaky as this guy.

Really none of them are surprises to me.

Expected Hudson to be a top 6 2nd bagger? I wouldn't even of said top 10!

I agree with the last poster in the fact that anyone can have a good week. But Kinsler, Byrnes, and Granderson were some guys I went into drafts targeting if they went for a decent price... NO REACHING!

I voted Iwamura. I admittedly didn't know much about him to start the year, but I didn't expect this type of start. I thought it would take him more time to adjust. He has definitely been impressive so far.

Did I imply reaching somehow? I'd hope the value to ADP comment set the tone. Yes, here are my draft sheet 2B ranks, copied and pasted. Italics are projections, bold is where I took them.

You are surprised that the active player with the best career so far has been playing well?

My thoughts as well most hitters have a hard time adjusting
