I'd go Ellsbury for sure, I think we're still a good 5 picks away from where I'd take Longo.


I have a logjam of guys in this area with Longo being one of them. As of now, I would have no clear cut advantage to any of them. That's the fun of mocking, seeing how early decisions affect the mid/end of the draft.

I think I would have taken Ellsbury too, but I can't knock the Longo pick. If I was picking later in the order (like J35J), I would most certainly be looking to land Longo. I like him quite a bit over the next best 3B (where the real 3B cluster starts, IMO). But with the 12th pick overall, does Longo make it back to him in the second round? I give it a 50/50 shot at best and that may be a tad generous.

Thus far, any crazy picks in the 1st round? Or is that impossible? Or are we not allowed to talk about it yet :-X

You'll have to wait to see my opinion when the blog post is revealed.

I'll be giving thumbs up/thumbs down in each round with of course explanation/justification of my own selections.

Any and all input is suggested.

I wouldn't mind doing a short write up of what I was thinking if that would help your/your friend's blog. Just let me know.

you can talk about any picks already made, just don't talk about players who haven't been drafted.

no pitchers thru 13, must not be 1 of those weighted towards SP point leagues. Cuddyer qualify @ 2nd, Montero @ C?
When asking for roster advice in these pages, remember there are thousands of different sets of league rules & many different active roster settings. If you want the best replies, be sure to include your leagues particulars in the original post
