I didn't mean to come off as an ass, and apologies if i did. I certainly don't profess to be any minor league expert.
Yeah, I've got a couple guys in my league like you.
no you dont. you may think you do, but you would be wrong.
Last year they were picking guys like David Huff and Chris Dickerson while I got Montero & Alvarez. I guess I lost out because my guys haven't made the majors yet. Their guys provided negative value.
Sucks for them ...
I don't know about this negative value ... my track record is pretty good..
Here are all my picks from the last two seasons. I think I got excellent value from Zimmerman, before he went down. The rest are promising.
2008 has proven to be even better ...
2009 14 SDP - Jordan Zimmermann P
2009 30 SDP - Jaff Decker OF
2009 54 SDP - Bradley Holt P
2009 55 SDP - Daniel Schlereth P
2009 62 SDP - Allan Dykstra 1B
2009 77 SDP - Jonathan Lucroy C traded
2009 78 SDP - Jeremy Hefner P
2008 18 Chris Davis 3B
2008 45 Tommy Hanson P

You're right, I don't know you're league setup. I can't imagine what it is that makes potential closers worth spending a high minor league pick on and quality catchers easily obtainable.
Closers go for 20-30 bucks. You can find scrubs selling for 10-15. Catchers sell for 2-3 bucks. The top two C get locked up for 18.00, and everybody else makes no more than 7.00. On average, once the top two are gone ( and they are gone ), catchers are going to cost you 2-3 bucks.
Signing a minor league catcher under our rules will cost you 3 or 4 bucks if, and that's a big if, they work out.
I realized some people think Stewart can be a SP. I'm not one of them. Even if he makes it, he has 2 pitches. One of which is a 90 MPH fastball. No thanks. I'm glad you're happy with your draft.
His Changeup is a work in progress, or so i have read. You don't like him thats fine. He was highly ranked by BA and Sickels, and that was before they moved him to the rotation.
I am quite content, and I am happy, you are happy, that i'm happy
