LL doesn't know what he is doing. Peavy is awesome but not #13 overall in a 12-team league awesome. Sheesh. And how does Cuddyer go undrafted and Bonds doesn't? Man I wish I was in y'alls league. }:-)

I"m surprised Pujols got taken 2nd despite his shoulder hype.

To be fair, the hype has been more pronounced in the last couple of weeks, and the Mock started at the beginning of January, so chances are that it would have been a different pick if it had been done in the last week.

I don't think there was anything wrong with the Peavy pick. I don't agree with a lot of his picks after that. With Santana and Peavy he could have almost forgot about getting more pitching until the later rounds and I would have started picking up HR bats instead of punting HR and working on R and SB.

And it is Pujols elbow not his shoulder.

Sorry, yes his elbow. Problem was that he didn't focus on hitting. He took Jeter as his first bat, then followed up a few picks later with Chris Young and JJ putz.

Oh get over yourself, and explain to me why pitcher-pitcher on the wrap around is good stategy in the first two rounds, when you can find pitching all year? And then explain to me Peavy at number 13 overall, when you have Johan and could grab a legit bat. LL cut his legs out from under himself doing this, waiting that long for a bat. Go ahead and tell yourself that your gonna sacrfice power for speed and then assume your going to win every pitching category all year. See where that gets you.
