They were referring to drafting elite catchers back-to-back, which is not even almost fine. Sure if they happen to fall or something but in the situation they were referring to you would leave more value on the board than you would gain by cutting the supply of catchers.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Right, that I would agree with. I didn't realize they were talking only about elite catchers back to back.

I hate SS with a passion this year. If I don't get one of the top guys, I almost feel like waiting until the last few rounds and either taking Orlando Cabrera or Ryan Theriot. Let someone else waste a mid-round pick on Miguel Tejada %-6

I like Hardy, Tulo, Peralta, Drew, Furcal and don't even mind Jeter or Young. I want one of those guys if I don't get Ramirez or Rollins(I left Reyes off that list on purpose~).

I would never draft him with a top 6 pick so I'll likely never own him.

This show was obviously geared at the average player, the Public League guy, etc. That is why most of the advice was presented as a universal, without really touching upon too deep a rhyme or reason. They seemed to simply be offering generic possibilities to think about going into the draft, which in a Public League draft, may very well be applicable for a lot of them. Those drafts must be so different from what most of us are used to, that simply employing a simple strategy like they offer rather than none at all could mean a world of difference. Again, I'm unsure of this, but it was the feeling I got during the show. Again, we're all going to agree/disagree with a lot of it, but we ourselves here at the Cafe often fall prey to a lot of group-think and simply disregard any contrary beliefs as rubbish. I am glad they got any fantasy stuff at all on the Network, and I too hope that they get some sort of Saturday morning hour or what have you in place, even if it's similar to last night's level of player in mind -- guys like that don't even know who Chris Davis is, etc. so last night may have been the very first they've ever heard of him, which puts them at an immediate advantage over the rest of their league-mates who have never heard of him. It's the same premise as the guys around the Cafe who keep it a secret from their league, to try and get an edge. That show last night was probably a great benefit to a great deal of fantasy players. I know it's hard for us to think all the way back to when we were that ignorant about the game, but I know that I, for one, was.

Saw this show this afternoon, thought it was entertaining even if it wasn't informative to me, I'm sure it was to others. I did enjoy Harold's wide eyed looks at some of the negative comments made about a few of the players and why they wouldn't be considered worthy of drafting. All in all, a nice show, hope they keep it alive.

Yup, its classic when you see non fantasy baseball minds talk to fantasy baseball minds! I also loved the comment that one of the fantasy guys made in that a guy who plays fantasy baseball is more knowledgable about the game than those baseball fans that don't play fantasy baseball(in general)....Harold was like no way....it's very true though(in general), IMHO. Just look at Harold for exhibit A. :-)
