Taking maybe a little bit of risk with Goldschmidt here but felt like I wouldnt get him coming back. I also like Grey's prediction on him this year, 84/29/104/.274/12. Overall I am happy with Adam Jones/Paul Goldschmidt as my 2nd & 3rd round picks in a 14 teamer. I feel both are 5 category guys that can help me out across the board.

Goldschmidt definitely wouldn't have made it back to you. If you want a guy, don't hope he falls to you, go get him a round early. I like the pick.

I think Price is in the super-elite for pitchers. In a real league, I might have take E5/Buster and left Price out, but I want to see what pitching gets back to me in two rounds. I have a feeling pitchers are going to fall in the late 3rd/early 4th, and getting Price is worth it to start the 3rd round.

Whether you buy into it or not, The buzz is already big on Goldschmidt. Come march, if you want Goldschmidt, you better not wait on him!

As and aside Bill James definitely has some fantasy wood for Goldschmidt. He's also got some for Rizzo .283 86-33-109-7. Nice!

already sweating bullets as I watch all my picks fly off the board. and Its round 3. love this stuff.

Was hoping for Pedroia / Goldie - settled on a new revived Hanley Ramirez (still ss eligible, so that's neat).

Projections - 90/23/92 .285/ 20 sounds about right in that extremely expensive LA line-up.

Hanley is a steal at #35 overall, and I would have chosen him at #34 but I wanted to get a stud outfielder before they were all gone.

hate the doyers... and I live in LA. Go figure.

Hanley needs to get his mind right - maybe some street tacos will do the trick.
