Hitting in middle of lineup, 28 years old... I tend to disagree. Granted its the Astros, so counting stats should be tempered...

2014 Steamer Projections: 68/17/69/3 .250

That's very serviceable this late...


I'm not sure what you are disagreeing with...my projections

490AB
0.251avg
17HR
65RBI
60R
1SB

...that looks pretty close to Steamers projections and it's everything I said....250-.260 average... power output less than he did last year...and counting stats that are sub par. So yeah, meh, seems like a good word to use. And at the same time my last sentence above said it was still a fine pick this late...little risk this late and some upside...so yeah, it's a fine pick.


AGREE TO AGREE! 18-20 home runs from the C slot in the mid 200's slot is good value. Even if it comes with a .250-.260 average. I'm of the opinion there is never really a reason to draft a C high in a single C redraft league. That's kinda why I like the pick. Essentially, I think we are saying the same thing like a synonym. Was that a rap lyric once? Happy Friday, boys. Here's to getting another 2 rounds in today. Heyoooo!

I could see Miguel Montero returning some pretty good value this year. He's someone to keep on eye on this spring. He had some back issue last season. If they are a thing of the past I could easily see him returning to form.

During the last round of the draft, I think it would be great to setup a "Draft Analysis" topic and let each owner post what they liked/ did not like about their team and let other café members post, and vote for the favorite team. B-)

Solid idea. I think it's good to be critical of your own draft work, despite it being January. Given that we are not playing this out and the mock's intent is to be "educational", we should make this as interactive and as helpful as possible.

Pitching is still deep. Once you get past the top 50-60 there are still some solid possibilities.

I agree Saltydog. Even near the end here we are still seeing reliable pitchers getting drafted. (by the way saltydog, pm me about the Leftovers League)

It looks like people have lost interest in this mock ... it is moving at a crawl

It would be nice to finish off this round (round 22) and the last round (round 23)

Agree. The 12 hour limit is almost up, hopefully we can get moving then.
