People keep missing this, but it's an American League only fantasy draft.

Therefore Bruce, Rasmus, Kershaw, and now Maybin are either not eligible or very, very bad choices.
In my fridge: Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS), Central Waters Peruvian Morning, Bell's Batch 10,000, Dale's Pale Ale, Capital Brewery Amber, New Glarus Moon Man, and Guinness.

:*) I would have easily gone with Buchholz then. I could understand Hughes if you wanted someone who was 100% starting to open the season.

What's with all the Jay Bruce love in an AL-only league? :-D

I always go with the best talent on the board when picking minor leaguers. I would've went with Hughes.

There is the possibility that the Cincinnati GM trades him to an AL team for a middle reliever!

;-D I agree with J35J here. However, he may not starting right away considering Beckett, Dice-K, Schilling, Lester (or Santana) and Wakefield will be given a chance to start before him. But With 2 40 year olds on the rotation, Buchholz should have a spot in that rotation by June, which he won't relinquish for the foreseeable future.
