Dude if I had been so bold as to have a list for my picks I'd have been moaning the whole draft. ;-)

Besides I'm a believer in residual effects of drugs on the body. Have you ever noticed how a speed freak looks after awhile. :-D

Ha! I didn't sign up for the 1st draft for that reason. Couldn't help myself when this started tho :-b

No not what I meant, I have rankings and prices, just meant that I haven't had a queue for picks, it would have to be 30 players deep.

I'm really surprised Greinke lasted as long as he did. I was tempted to take him over Rizzo but couldn't do it since I just took Cliff Lee in round 4.


Was really hoping to grab Kipnis in round 6 though, nice pick.

I would have taken him in the 5th but I thought it might be too soon. :-D

I considered Greinke with my last pick. Decided to see how long I could go without a pitcher though.

I feel like 2B is Cano-Pedroia-Kinsler and everybody else. If you don't get one of those top 3 guys, you are probably better off just waiting. I feel like #4-12 2B all have the potential to put up top 5 seasons at their position, but who actually does it is anyones guess as each of them have their caveats.

With that said, Aaron Hill is a tough guy to get a read on. Obviously fantastic last season, but this season? He could hit .270 20HR with 10SB, or he could hit .210 10HR.

As for the Greinke pick, I typically don't like to take pitching until a bit later in the draft, but I couldn't let him fall any further. Should be interesting to watch how soon the super team the Dodgers have bought take to collapse just like their brethren at the Staples center.
