My quick take how in the heck is Funston an "expert"? His draft was HORRIBLE. Funston is stealing money.

You're not wrong.

Tim McLeod's team jumps out at me as being my kind of team. 3 players on it that I have in my 6 player keeper for next year, and 4 more who I didn't keep at season end.

Swanay's team is all reaches. Kemp, Soto, Alexei. Reyes over Pujols. Derek Lowe. Atkins. %-6 Don't draft like him and you will find success.

Edit: This draft is full of horrible picks/reaches.

Zimmerman in the 4th round? Pre-drafted or not, that's plain stupid.

The guy who got Votto probably could have waited 2 or 3 more rounds.

Pedroia goes way too early again.

Derek Lowe in front of Harang, Grienke, Baker, Slowey, Garza, Capps, J. Johnson, Danks, Scherzer. That's 9 options off the top of my head that would have been better.

I had a tough time believing my eyes Ellsbury 3-7, Zimmerman 4-6,Youk 3-11,Dunn 4-7,Victorino 4-12, Votto 5-3 and on it goes. 2 of them there must have been a malfunction but I really don't understand what in the world these guys were doing

Atkins in the 6th round is not a reach imho. But otherwise yeah.

I respectufully - and strongly - disagree. None of those are clear-cut better options than Lowe...well, maybe Grienke...

I agree Lowe was did very well last year while Grienke and Danks, maybe Garza were the only ones on that list who can compare.

Harang was horrid last season, and I am not going to go into depth with them.
I just like Lowe more than the rest of them.

I like McLeod's team as well. Not surprisingly, I play in a league with him and he always finishes near the top of the league.
