Taken, or to be taken: Beltran, Buerhle, Burnett, Wood, Od. Perez, Gagne.
Left available, hopefully: Schmidt (I am praying), Clement (shined last year), Wolf, Pineiro (nice stuff), Nomo (nice in FP), Kevin Brown (when to gamble?), Weaver (seems a lock to start), Pettitte, Byrd (2002 fluke?), Wells (dare I? not yet), Clemens (see Wells), Leiter, Ru.Ortiz, Beckett (blister free?), Ramon Ortiz, Woody Williams (injury history).
I can take one of those guys, if the top few are available, or I can go with a RP, if there isn't a run on them on the way back to me. I'm also looking for a 2nd OF, like Bernie, Klesko, Durham, Dunn, Junior (finally back?), A.Jones, Floyd (hate Mets; Bermuda triangle of talent).
Or I can swoop in and nab a Catcher, if Posada's available.
C'mon guys, lemme hear you. I know it's the weekend, but still!
You may remember him as Joe the Policeman from the "What's Goin' Down?" episode of That's My Momma! Please welcome, Jackson Heights' own, Mr. Randy Watson! Sexual Chocolate!!!
So the "Taken or be Taken" line is for sure not available? If Beltran is for some reason, take him.
If you want SP, take Schmidt. RP? I know Foulke isn't getting drafted high, but that 1.00 WHIP plus a cavernous Oakland coliseum is going to kick rear. Durham would be a good offensive pickup, but that depends on whether Vidro would be available at 2B. If you want OF, go with Burrell if he's still available.
Did you know there are no such things as "white" or "black" people?
Take Beltran! So many owners underestimate what he can do. You will have two good 5 category players in Vlad and Beltran. After this pick you have to look at your pitchers, your offense will be wonderful!
