I think where Cain went is a steal

If BJ was picked up, Cain was my #2 option. Absolute steal!!!

I felt I had to get BJ though. I already had Felix. I felt a little pressure to get some SB help since I had Miggy and Craig who offer little in terms of SB. Justin Upton helps, but BJ gives me a huge push in the category while helping in HR and hurting in BA. With Miggy, J. Upton and Craig, I felt I could take the BA hit.

Just call me the Team Brother Upton.

I pretty much flipped a coin between Bruce and Hanley.

I was debating between Hanley and Castro with my 4th round pick. I would've taken one of them before the turn, but knew that Dave wouldn't take both at the bookends. So I took Yoenis in the 3rd. I was hoping that he would take one of the two to make my decision easier.

Headley is another pick I feel risky about. His hr/fb rate went from 4% to 21% between 2011-12. I'm hoping the fences being moved in at Petco will help offset the regression we're likely to see there. Funny enough fangraphs put out an article on Headley earlier today: http://www.fangraphs.com/fantasy/index. ... stainable/

I would be happy with .280 25/15. The more I look at it I think it's more likely we only see 20 HR out of him this year.

I approve of any link that sends me an article containing Ricky Ledee, Dan Pasqua and Paul Sorrento.

I have him in a 20-team keeper at a cost of my 12th round draft pick. I sure hope he delivers again. I will not be touching him in any redraft leagues though, I know regression is coming.

I might have taken him if he were an OF. At 2B? No question.
