PSA: Don't Leave Your "I'm Away" Button Accidently Clicked

Because you'll end up with BJ Upton and Brandon Phillips in the second and third, respectively.

That stinks, but it's not like you're screwed. Both are top fantasy players if they stay on pace with last seasons numbers.

And Upton qualifies at OF, so it's not all bad.

Which we do! But it's still a bummer when you look down to grab a beer, look back up again and you've picked two guys you really didn't intend on picking.

The value is still there. Trade 'em.

That's what you get for being a raging alcoholic. Not only does it destroy friends and family, but also your fantasy baseball team. So sad... !+)

I had a similar thing happen with a freeze-up during my ESPN draft. Reyes/Crawford/Ichiro later, I have locked up stolen bases. It's never a good feeling. :-[

Yeah, trying to work that out now...Phillips seems to hold some value - at least moreso for a trade than Upton does.
