"While I understand the Buster/Grandy picks, I can't say that I would have made the same at the turn. And, I have a hard time taking a pitcher in the 1st round, but that boils down to personal philosophy not that it's a bad pick."

My thoughts exactly!

I have Posey as a $29 player in this format. I'll take him at 2.01 next time :-b

It's always interesting watching analysis of drafting a catcher "early" before the rest of the team is put together. Give me solid reliable production early in a snake (I also primarily do auction drafts)

As for Granderson, I was going to get an outfielder at this point. The only outfielders (and actually position players) I have ranked higher are Hamilton and Bautista. I'll take the comparable power, with the hope of SB's and higher run output everyday of the week. I was debating on Stanton, and I am sure he's the sexier/cool pick there, but give me a top of the line up Yankee, with that short porch, and some health.

Curious who everyone else would have drafted at the turn? (we can wait until they come off the board)

Nothing totally unexpected outside of what's been mentioned with Kershaw and Posey.

I'm intrigued to see how the rest of the top 20 falls.

even though it is only a mock, please keep undrafted players' names out of the discussion

I was debating between Hamilton and Tulo with my last pick. I liked the idea of starting with Fielder/Hamilton. Fairly safe choices. It would be much easier to find replacement production from an OF spot once Hamilton gets hurt than it would for Tulo.

So close to Tulo ... nice one, Pogo.

Guess I'll have to take the consolation prize.

I'm surprised by the Reyes pick. I'm scared that playing half his games on turf is going to land him on the dl a couple times. He's the only. Bluejay I'll avoid this year if that's where he is going..
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
