The first 3 picks went Miggy, Pujols, Kemp....
I went back and forth with Upton and Braun, and ended up taking Upton with my pick. I took a couple of different things to factor this decision. Upton is young, only 24, and finished 4th in NLMVP voting, and long term I think he's going to eventually be rated higher than Braun/Cano/Tulo, whether its this year or next. I was really apprehensive about Braun. How will he handle the push back of being accused of PEDS, or can he handle that? And if he truly was (regardless of being found not guilty of), I would almost like to believe you'll see a drop in numbers. One of the other factors I took, he no longer has Fielder hitting behind him. I think he saw better pitches knowing he had Fielder there. He's projected to be hitting #4 this year, and without that big power bat in the lineup behind him, I honestly forsee his numbers drop.
I did end up with CarGo with my 2nd pick too.
