I've got 4 players I'm thinking about. Need to mull them over a little. Got a long conference call later when I can check up on their latest news. Thinking of going for the all-boom-or-bust team.

Not understanding the Longoria love. Dude is consistently the most overrated player on the planet.

I don't think you're going to take the other guys either. It's more about the decision on who I think has a shot in hell to come back to me.

Projections are pretty much useless these days so just take the guy with the best context that fits your roster, it will work out!

Decided to go for the all-boom-or-bust team.
Average age of my first 3 picks - 22 yrs old with an average of 1 yr of MLB experience.
At least they will be fun to watch.

Well, Harper was one of them, but I was torn. You made my pick easier.

Heyward was one of the 4 I was looking at along with another pitcher.

First thanks ya'll for inviting me back! Have to say, I never thought I'd ever see Billy Butler, every year's sleeper, creep into the 2nd round :-D

Butler's going to be creeping into the 1st round next year so save your surprise! :-D

Seriously though, this guy has hit for average his whole time in the MLB and at age 25 added 30+ HR power to the mix? Sign me up. The only thing that is holding him back is a team full of unfulfilled potential. If the players around him click this year, you might be taking Butler in the top half of the 1st next year.

Jacoby Ellsbury. Because you can never have too many injury risks.
