I did the complete opposite and decided to make him the 3rd pick. I boldly passed on Reyes, Pujols, and Wright, and it's sure paying off.
Well, I wouldn't have done this if I didn't hate the 2nd baseman position so much. I had Kelly Johnson last year for crying out loud
. Not to take anything away from him, but he's no Chase Utley. So, I would like to thank Kelly Johnson for the amazing decision I made this year.
Ha, good story. I took him with the 4th pick and was actually disappointed about it.
I wanted A-Rod, Hanley or Wright but they predictably went 1-2-3. I tried to trade the pick but no takers, so I grudgingly "settled" for Utley because of the 2B factor.
Guess that turned out ok
