I draft them for how they're going to help my clubhouse atmosphere.
I tried that last year and was completely disappointed. It was probably my fault though, I think my character rankings were just off. I put way too much stock in Leadership Over Replacement Player and ended up with a couple of prima donnas that brought everyone down.
Yah, the key is to get Kevin Millar around about the 12th round. He does a good job keeping all your other personalities loose.
Ack! I'm all for winning titles, but the first time my team starts a "Cowboy Up" chant I would have to resign.
I think I would have to say Theriot. I actually drafted him because he was mentioned in one the articles on this site and he has made a great MI. So many runs, hits, great OBP and the odd SB. Another player is DeRosa, he's all I had to fill in for ARod and I didn't lose while Arod was out.
1a. McLouth...this kid is amazing, he seems to cool down then bam...right back to it 1b. Kevin Youkilis, doesn't see much time with Chipper and Morneau at the corners, but usually twice a week he delivers when i call on him

4 games, 4 HR. If that is not clutch then I don't know what is!
I have to 2nd the Napoli pick. I won't say Berkman because I expected great numbers from him. Napoli was my last pick in the 23rd round and is my only catcher. It has been great to sign in the next day after his games and see the production. The guy is not only hitting for power, he has also picked up some SBs too.
