dont forget my guys are moving the fences in for ya'... Headley might hit at least 20-25. However, RBIS/ Runs will be light. Thinking last year was serious outlier. little too rich for my blood in the 4th especially given how poorly that park plays for hitters and the AAAA line-up around him.

Love the Cliff Lee pick. He was my next target but I didn't expect him to fall all the way back to me.

Not a bad pick I don't think. I think the .300 average is for real, add that to 100 runs and 15/15 and you've got a pretty good OF. Of course he got caught a lot last year so he might not get the green light much this year.

I love his run production, what can I say. He missed an entire month last season and tied for 8th in the majors in runs scored. His avg. may drop a bit but I think he was gimpy last season so his steals and sb% should go up. Given a full season I project 15 Hr, 60 RBI, 110 Runs, .290 AVG, 25 SB. It's not record breaking but I like his consistency, especially given my picking M-Cab first, that combo could bring in a lot of R/RBI.

I seriously doubt the .300 average is real. He strikes out way too much to sustain it, even with his ridiculous BABIP.

Those numbers are fair but lean towards expecting high end numbers from him to break even. But that's why I love doing drafts so early it's great to see everyone's different opinions and expectations on players. :-)

I love that we picked our draft position and it wasn't randomized. Don't get to do that very often!


I know a guy that runs a league that picks draft spots like that. ;-7

BTW, thanks for working on the summary post, it looks great. Anyone know how to sticky it?


And thank you for setting up the rounds every round. I just fixed it so that when you are done updating the picks each round you can just copy/paste it into the rosters thread. ;-D Neat and easy

Thanks. Yeah I usually wait a little longer on pitching but I'm more than happy to trap the benefits of last years fluke low win total.
