I'm a fan of Team E but agree Team J is pretty good too.

Mine is E. I just really think Bell came at a big discount because of his early injury last season.

Team B, E and J in no order. Bell is a good swing for the fences pick and was probably a good value.

Were there any picks traded? It seems like the teams are too equal for that to happen.

No picks were traded this year though there were some prospect hold overs from last season to make up the trios. I also went young on purpose to not force my contending team to take on too many prospects this season as I'm already carrying N. Castellaos and O. Tavares on my bench.

I guess the reason that all of the teams look equal is that there are only 36 MiLB spots plus whatever prospects are in the majors. My 24 tm dynasty also does a 3 rd 1st yr player draft but it would be worthless to compare teams since some teams have 4 1st rd picks. And the entire farm systems have 500 players.

In a draft like this I think you could go for high upside younger guys. Average players aren't a big advantage in a 12 tm leagues. I really like Stephenson. I have him on my radar as a potential riser this year.

I'd probably go with F. Pitching prospects are always dicey.

E, F & J. I knew that E was yours. :-D

Not huge on Stephenson, but Baez is a stud regardless of position and Bell's potential is nice.
