Our Minor Leauge Draft - Rate it!

Postby Fantasy Man 27 » Thu May 10, 2007 10:43 pm

My team is Zach Attack. Several teams were not at the draft, so we "autopicked" for them. Some players were not available such as Bailey, Wood, Hughes, LaRoche, Butler, Saltalamacchia, etc.

I have to say "RottisieBoy" had the worst draft. I seems like every time he picked, there were alot of better available players. Yankees Suck gave him a run for his money though.

I think Nelson 17 easily had the Best draft. Got some great players at the top and bottom, including the best player available, Cameron Maybin.

Best Picks- Phillip Humber, Joey Votto, James Loney, Jeff Niemann, Clay Bucholtz

Worst Picks- Jacob Ellsbury, Colby Rasmus

By the way, your Minor League squad is Solid. Your upside there is through the roof. At the same time, guys who could go no where, but overall, great, great team. Your pitching is going to shut folks down, and Brignac is going to win the ROY next year, if Longoria doesn't take it from him.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

I have the same feelings. The sad thing about the draft is Nelson17 was autopicked for. I think Buchholtz could potentially be the best pick. I have a lot of guys far away, but with tons of upside. I think my pitching staff is amazing.

Best 3 Picks:

1. Jay Bruce
2. Billy Rowell
3. Fernando Martinez

Worst 3 Picks:

1. Adam Miller
2. Travis Buck
3. Joel Guzman

Bruce is a monster, and will eventually be playing in Cincinatti's stadium. Of the big 3, he has had the most initial success.

Wrong A. Miller. Adam can be good but if I'm going to take a Pitcher with that pick, it has to be Andrew. Thats not even factoring in the big 3, and Longoria.
