Torii Hunter - 18th round
Eric Byrnes - 20th round

Although there was alot of good picks, these 2 stood out the most.

fielder made it through the draft without being claimed. after the season started, fielder bounced around 3 different teams before someone decided to keep him. i'm usually in 2nd place, barely first right now. the guy usually in first has some good players- santana, soriano, ryan howard, had jose reyes most of the year, sizemore, nathan/putz/saito, chipper, figgins, berkman, etc. etc. and he lost carpenter to dl.

I don't know about my whole league, but Hudson with my 21st pick (241 overall) has been pretty sweet. I've paid whatever it took to have him for the last 4 years. Needless to say this has been the best return for the least investment. :-D

My stupid league has had the same owners for 7 years. It's become a pissing match of scouting. Anyone with upside gets taken 2 rounds too early. Only steals are guys like Hudson who look washed up. ;-)

Are you playing in a 3 team league?

Ramirez was predicted to go in the 3rd or 4th round
