1. What was your draft strategy?
I don't really have a strategy - maybe that was what Jed was alluding to in his comment?! In the end it wasa combination of best available players, guys I really like (Votto), and an attempt to balance my team so no real weaknesses. Drafttracker is actually really helpful for that.
2. Who do you think was the steal of the draft?
So difficult to tell. Guys like Hosmer and Lawrie could be, if they perform how most of us expect them to, you won't be getting them in those rounds again. Howard if he comes back in May is a big bargain, while if either Harper or Trout get called up by June should easily out perform their slots for me.
3. Who do you think was the reach of the draft?
Fowler was a couple of rounds earlier than perhaps Oscar needed to take him, although not necessarily a bad pick. Maybe Votto - by ignoring Pujols again - what do I have against that guy! - I really need him to out perform Albert to justify that pick. I think he could, but, perhaps, if I had been there live, I wouldn't have been so bold.
4. Who do you think will finish in the top 3?
I would hope me, but I will go with Rock, SeanCasey and A_O, because he seems to have the waiver wire touch.
5. Who do you think will finish in the bottom 3?
Thomas (sorry), Shockers (sorry) and Oscar (not sorry - it's league tradition).
6. The best pick that you made
I hope it turns out to be Votto, because he makes the move up to being considered for #1 overall next year. I also hope Morales, and any of my bench players turn into great picks.
7. The worst pick that you made
Possibly David Wright - this injury stuff scares me already. In some ways I would prefer Zimmermann to him.
8. What player is the biggest key to your success?
All of them - they will all contribute to the team's success. They're a great bunch of lads, and we've got a great team spirit already. I will need them all during the season - they know that and we're all pulling in the same direction. (Courtesy of Paul Lambert, aka "God", manager of Norwich City Football Club).
9. Your team's weak/strong points?
Hopefully I don't have any weak points - although I need Jansen to close asap, and Marmol to rebound to 2010 form, for saves. Might be a bit light on steals.
10. If you could swap teams with anyone else, whose would you take?
No one. No one else has Votto. (Why do I love this guy so much? Weird.)
