Don't let 'em get in your head too much. It was a bit early, but sometimes you have to take a chance :-D

Thanks for the mentioning Omaha. Also, I'm glad everyone liked the D. Young pick, though you all conveniently forgot that it was me (not JCobb) who made the pick. B-) :-D :-B

Bad

Braun: Even though he’s a good young player that can put up great numbers, the risk over taking him over proven guys such as Soriano/Guerrero/Ortiz/C.Lee, etc. isn’t worth it. He could end up putting good enough number up where he has good value there, but I’d rather not take the risk at 2.01. The most I would reach at him is around round 3, so I probably won’t be owning him this year.

Bay: He’s not the 5 stud he once was. He’s lost his speed and after having that brutal year last year I think it’s way too early to gamble on him at 5.06. I’d much rather have a couple young guys such as Pence, C.B.Young, Kinsler, etc.


I think you are missing the word "tool" between 5 and stud. :-B

For the draft, Atkins at 28 was probably the biggest reach, I'd have a hard time committing to him as a top 3 player on my team over guys like Granderson and Morneau who were still on the board.

No, No, SG meant stud. Bay turned him down in the past

Yeah, I meant 5 tool stud. I was in a real rush and Omaha wanted the comments in as soon as possible. So I wrote those comments in about a couple of minutes.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
