I wish I had gone a little higher in my auction on Scherzer, who went for $13, instead I ended up with Billingsley at $12.
I kind of got Kinsler cheap at $17 but a little later Phillips went for $13.
And though I just stole Ellsbury for cheap I wish I hadn't spent $16 on Rios and gotten Ellsbury at $13 instead.

JETER....

i was hoping for a nice bounceback year because he had such a good 09 season. i had him ranked ahead of rollins easily.

i had a chance earlier in the season to keep darwin barney and in hindsight i shouldve kept him and started him over jeter.

also carlos lee, i thought i was getting cheap power for 1B/CI. :-P

Basically my whole roto offense - B. Roberts, Furcal, Wright, Delmon Young, Soto. Add in two DL closers for good measure - Aardsma, Conteras.

Result: Likely finishing out of the money

Here's a couple for me:
-Jon Broxton over Jose Valverde
-Ian Desmond over Starlin Castro
-Derrek Lee over Ike Davis


Ouch.

I'd go with Chris Carpenter (over Shaun Marcum) and Carlos Lee (over Lance Berkman.

Kendrys Morales in round 6. I had him the year before and was so cheesed off over the bad luck of losing him on that grand slam home plate celebration injury that I was determined to get value out of him this year instead. Wrong. I guess I'll leave him alone in next year's draft unless he falls more so.
