Those Aviles/Scutaro picks back to back cracked me up.

Not sure why.

I'm torn between two different draft strategies for this mock.

I have also been given permission to "guest blog" on a site regarding this mock draft.

You have all been warned.


Been waiting for an update from you, are you going to continue ??

I"m up to round 14 with my writing, but the blog is only posting 3 rounds at a time.

Rounds 4-6 are here:

Saltydog :
» Elvis Andrus 4.08 Back to back SSs taken at this spot, and probably a few rounds too early for someone that hits in the bottom of a potent Texas lineup. Unless he can get his BA to .285 or .290 levels, it didn’t make sense to grab an OF here."

Andrus went #29 in the FSTA Experts you linked to, I didn't mind him at #50 in a 14 teamer with middle infield. Curious where he's hitting in the Texas lineup, I've only seen him in the 2 hole? Andrus is someone I'm wanting to draft in my roto leagues before BJ & Bourn; is he really at the bottom of the lineup now? My thinking was draft 3rd base and SS early this year; I despised Castro that early but didn't mind Andrus there. All the 3rd basemen went very early so I doubled up on SS instead. Am I seeing what I want to with Andrus @ 50?

He's about as due as they come...if he can't put it together this year he'll never do it. He does seem to be "slowly" getting it so we'll see.

Oh, he's due alright. Good season coming. That second half was nice.
