I was down to about 2 or 3 choices, Aoki made the most sense considering the structure of my team right now.

I really didn't want to take a catcher until the last round but just based on stats and ignoring position think Napoli was the best value left. I'm quite happy I don't have to worry about C at all now.

Ya I was looking at Napoli but decided on Gomez instead. I could see .250 15hr 30sb or he could be dropped by May. Time will tell.

With him where he bats in the lineup will make a big difference on his value. If he moves up to the 1 or 2 hole for a prolonged stretch I could see him adding some nice R/RBI to his solid HR/SB totals

Wow. Was that like 11 picks in 1:15? Nice job top end guys. Bottom end dudes, we're sucking it. :-{

Just an FYI Polo - Morales hasn't played the OF since 2008. I know Yahoo had him there last year but they shouldn't have :-D

Pretty happy with my Uggla pick. I drafted him perfectly okay with the fact he may bat .220. With Votto, Reyes and Mauer I have plenty of .300+ hitters and should be able to take the AVG. hit. I figured that at this point in the draft who else can you pencil in at MI and reasonably expect 25hrs and 90 RBI.

El burro - where are you getting your projections that you put up on the team rosters page? I'm thinking of doing a team projected stat totals at the end of the draft but I'm not sure where I'd pull the numbers from.
