Yeah really, I was reading through the posts wondering how Houston got saddled with having no one and then Brett Myers of all people getting brought up. Hey, if people are forgetting to draft a young strikeout guy with an unfortunate case of Wins, then that's good for some of the rest of us.

Stat maven Theo Epstein is not going to continue to allow Castro to give up an out 1/3 of the time he runs. Unless Castro gets significantly better at stealing bases, I am confident his attempts will decrease.

I would expect no more than 15 steals next year.


How will he know if he's improved if he's running less? :-?
He will have a higher rate of success.

Houston would be my vote.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Twins... I mean they have a slew of injury riddled guys and a closer who isn't a sure thing by any means.

And SP wise, they have.... I don't know of anyone I'd take in a standard league.

They were mentioned in a long post.

I'll take Scott Baker near the end of the draft. But after Mauer there shouldn't be anyone that goes close to the first half of a draft. And Mauer is also a mess.
