I like Davis as well. I like Morrow's skill set, but this is a guy that has managed 30 starts just once in his career. In doing so he still did not get to 180 innings. I get an Erik Bedard-like vibe from him. He just can't stay healthy.

Love the Davis pick too -- he was on my list, even though I didn't want to fill my CI spot this early.

Bummed that Middlebrooks got drafted before I picked again -- he's been at the top of my list for a couple rounds, but I gambled that I could get him on the way back. 3B could be a black hole for me now.

I'm keeping Middlebrooks in my main league, so I'm not taking him in any drafts anywhere.

My other keeper hasn't been taken here yet, but I don't think it'll be much longer.

There he is.

I can see Harvey delivering pretty solid ratios and K's for the Mets.

I was kind of surprised to still see him out there. I like him as a SP3/4

I have the same sentiments with Lester.

The "Players Taken" post was checked about three times to see if Lester still was available.

I think Lester can easily bring SP2 value this year.

Harvey and Lester are solid picks here. I wasn't ready to take a 4th SP yet. I felt like I need to fill out my hitting more first.

We still have three people here who do not have a catcher rostered. 9 catchers down, 3 more open C slots left.
I'm looking at a list of still available catchers and I think I'm going to pass, perhaps even be the last person to pick a C. It is CRAZY deep this year!!! I see 5-6 catchers that are still draft worthy.
