Anyway, someone took Roy Halladay 3rd overall (Pujols and Hanley went 1-2). We gave him a lot of crap for it.
I don't know that's a completely terrible move. If you want to build your team around pitching, the argument can easily be made that Halladay is the best choice. An already-dominant pitcher moving to the NL, playing on one of the best teams? If you're in a league that counts Wins as a category, I think he's the best starter out there (I think Lincecum is close, but won't get as many W's). I think #3 is a little early, but I wouldn't have a problem with him as a first round draft pick.
