Here are the guys I could have taken instead Hamilton, SP and OF removed.
(2) Chase Utley (Phi - 2B)
(3) Ian Kinsler (Tex - 2B)
(4) Jimmy Rollins (Phi - SS)
(6) Lance Berkman (Hou - 1B)
(7) Evan Longoria (TB - 3B)
(8) Prince Fielder (Mil - 1B)

Round 3
(6) Dustin Pedroia (Bos - 2B)
(7) Brandon Phillips (Cin - 2B)
(8) Aramis Ramírez (ChC - 3B)

I guess I could have taken Morneau instead Lee in the 4th, SP and OF removed.
Round 4

(7) easy e - Justin Morneau (Min - 1B)
(10) Jasien - David Ortiz (Bos - Util)

I was gonna say, what's the fun in playing a 10 team league? Just don't see the appeal.

Right and with the league setting you drafted in, position doesn't matter (especially since it is a mock draft). You just need to load up with as many studs as possible and pick up the waiver trash All Stars to fill in your holes.

My thinking has always been that if you have filled the positions you need and there aren't glaring weaknesses on your club, that is the best time to take some chances. Instead of looking at it as "best player avialable" think of it as a way to go for a gamble. Hope I helped.

I usually abandon best available after the first 4 rounds but I had never run into a situation like this.
