Sounds good Rock.

Sorry about going mia, had a long night out yesterday. !+)

If I end up MIA again, which won't happen, I'd rather have a pick made on my behalf than hold this up.

Love the Zobrist pick, the highest ranked guy on my board and that position eligibility is gold.

Well, since you brought it up. He wasn't next on my list either. Are you guys thinking he'll produce 2009 numbers again? I've got him about .270/18/85/80/16 which seems in line with recent years. But... that shouldn't make him the highest ranked player left on most people's boards. :-?

I was hoping to make Zobrist my next pick. Really just a safe pick with great flexibility. I don't have him doing anything outside of his career averages... I just think he holds great value with the solid numbers and 3 positions.

I've got him a little better than that. It's possible I screwed up when calculating my auction values.

Zobrist for fantasy is Dustin Pedroia with a lower batting average. Throw in the position flexibility and you have a good pick right around 40 overall. There is also the possibility he hits .297 again and that would make him a steal... But I'm expecting a .270's average that flirts with 20/20 and has good run production. Pretty safe pick to do that with a little bit of upside for a higher average if he gets lucky.

Also gives u the option to take the best available middle infielder later in the draft. Doesn't limit to JUST 2B or JUST SS. I'm a Zobrist fan this season.

He was close to the top of my list, but the position flexibility made him the logical choice
