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.

they get 4 hours as well, both picks will get skipped at that point.

no pitchers thru 13, must not be 1 of those weighted towards SP point leagues. Cuddyer qualify @ 2nd, Montero @ C?
