Biggest steals in your drafts this year?

Postby nyrblue2 » Thu Aug 09, 2007 9:45 am

Just wanted to find out who some of the sleepers in the past drafts were for you guys. Who got drafted in the late rounds that is clearly outperforming his draft position?

John Maine - 21st round - 241st pick
Ted Lilly - 22nd round - 260th pick
Eric Bedard - 13th round - 151st pick
Placido Polanco - 18th round - 210th pick
Troy Tulowitzki - 22nd round - 258th pick
Prince Fielder - 11th round - 121st pick
Kelvim Escobar - 16th round - 191st pick
Curtis Granderson - 17th round - 200th pick (then dropped to WW and picked up by me :-D )
Eric Byrnes - 15th round - 179th pick
Adrian Gonzalez - 19th round - 224th pick

Brett Tomko... he was a free agent and someone snagged him up for nothing!

We do an auction in my deep, contract league (with minors), but you don't have to fill your team through the auction. You can round out your 25-man roster in a free draft afterwards for league min. contracts.

I picked up Aaron Hill with my very last pick. Not a superstar, but the 25th round is certainly a steal compared to what he's done this year - and with dual-eligibility, too.
