We all know (from experience) that alot can happen and change between now and the start of the season (see Wainwright, Adam). They haven't even played spring games yet! Thats why you wait to draft until a week or two before the season.
Yes but depending on how you draft and your preparation, you can come out on top.
I for one would not draft Braun at all until this news broke. Only 100 games sans roids = a lot less stats. Appeals are virtually always lost. I didn't know he was appealing on a technicality.
Saying "its too early" and "anything can happen til season starts" won't change the fact that those that got him in round 5-7 got a bargain. They gambled and they won. Bigtime. Even sans roids, you're probably getting a Rnd 2 quality player (or better) 3-4 rounds later.
That's why gambling exists ya know. Because sometimes people win.
Else why go to a casino? Just make a check to your favorite charity.
I love mock drafts.
