Eric Hosmer.... a trendy pick i know, but i see him moving into 1st Rd / early 2nd Rd nextyr... and can be had in 5th ( potential votto-esque statline)
David Freese.... torrid pace in playoffs, which i think will carry over and provide 3rd-6th round value
Neil Walker.... batting cleanup thisyr and wont hurt u in any stats... solid hitter who could have "Michael Young-esque" type of year (high RBIs / Avg, with mid-high teen HR totals) and from 2nd base, thats awesome
Jake Peavy.... only problems have been health in last few years, reports say hes 100% healthy and he can be had very late.... upside is tremendous
Josh Johnson.... could contend for Cy Young and ranked outside the top 100 on yahoo, his ADP is higher but still, great value
To recap my post... Some nailed, some completely missed:
Ike Davis- 32-90 is pretty good, first half and batting avg killed but I'd say this wasn't a bad call
Eric Hosmer- complete whiff! No need to elaborate, kid regressed BiG time
David Freese- I said up to 6th Rd value and later cited Longo lite numbers, not too far off and outplayed his ADP
Neil Walker- had his ups and downs but at one point, was a complete stud. Not quite what I had hoped but not a loss either.
Jake Peavy- loved em and had em in every league. Tough luck in the Wins dept but solid season all around.
Josh Johnson- missed big time on this pick as well. Just wasn't even close to the same pitcher
All in all I'm happy with my picks above and I'll be targeting Hosmer HEAVILY in my keeper nextyr and I'll also be targeting JJ to have a bounce back season.
