Rats, Eaton was a late round target of mine since before the draft even started. Seems like I'm moving onto plan B all too often in this.

Sorry to hold the draft up for a couple hours. I was in the middle of something and I'll try to make the rest of my picks a little sooner.

Jesus Montero in the 13th > or equal to Carlos Santana in the 7th.

Good pick. There is a reason to wait on C this year... lot of depth.

Yup, realized that when I made my Napoli pick, I'd rather be able to play him at OF, C gets no scarcity bump at all.

Geez I was torn over this ben revere pick at #174 with another player. I don't want to say yet who the other player was, but I almost editted the pick several times now. Revere is the best base stealer left in the draft, and philly has never been shy about stealing bases. Hope I made the right decision. :-?

Corey Hart was a bit of a cheat pick. I just read this afternoon that he announced he is ahead of schedule on his rehab and is now targeting a end of april return date. While you can't put too much stock in something like that, it bumped him up enough that I though it was worth the risk to grab him. If he does return at the end of April then I think its a great value pick.

At this point in the draft I figure you have to roll the dice on a couple of picks like this and try to hit one big.

I liked the Morneau pick a few picks back. Another pick which has the chance to pay huge dividends.

LaRoche knocked in 100 runs last year on 33 bombs, has a stronger top of the lineup this year, and he goes 179th overall? Even at .270-25-90 it's a bank pick. Couldn't ignore him any longer.
