Thanks Madison! Don't forget about the alternate though (me) who probably invested more time on this mock than some of the other participants ;-D

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.


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.


Yeah, that is partially my bad too. I didn't read the comments as closely, because after 13 pages of draft... my brain melted :-D

I will look them over more closely, just to make sure there arent any glaring typos, but since many of them are direct quotes, etc - I didnt want to change them much, if any ;-D

The birds are done but I should have given priority to fixing this article first (no teams/positions listed for the players).

Sorry about that Mad. That's my fault. I had positions and team up, but when I tried to format it to mock, I couldn't figure it out and tried to keep it as simple as possible for you or Cougs to edit it into format.

Wow, I didn't even notice that. I was in a hurry to get the piece up and I since all the player names passed through spell check and the article looked good at first glance in the top section, I passed it through.

Are you working on this Mad, or do you want me to get on it tomorrow? PM me and let me know :*)

It's done now and I fixed the legend while I was in there. If I missed anything X-I , feel free to fix it. Still haven't read the writeup yet :-/ . Been hit by more PM's and emails than I can count the last two days.
