Its the 21st and 22nd round picks that are more likely to win you a league not the 1st or 2nd.

True. In the 2 leagues I won last year my last picks were Ryu (266) in a yahoo pro league and Uehara (364) in a 14 team private league.

It is true. It's just not as exciting.

If people want to post their favorite and least favorite pick, I will (try to) put them together for an article at some point this weekend.

I don't really have a favorite, but if I had to pick, I might go with Aramis Ramirez at 12.09(163).


My least favorite are
Colby Rasmus at 15.06(202)
Dayan Viciedo at 17.06(230)
and not because I necessarily think they are bad picks but you can pretty much get their production later in the draft so I might have been better off gambling on a high upside guy or two here and taken the "similar" production later in the draft.

Favourite pick would be Burnett if does come back for another year. I'll take those K's in the 20th round any day.

Worst pick, Murphy. Any round I wouldn't like it. Wasn't prepared and just took highest guy from some other mocks I had found.

One thing this mock taught me is that I'm really I happy I cut down my leagues this year. Newborn at home doesn't leave as much time as every other year for planning and stuff.

Favorite pick for me would be Corey Hart at 15.10 (206 overall). Seattle can't be THAT bad for former Brewers hitters, right Richie Sexson?

Least favorite, Matt Carpenter at 4.05 (47 overall). I don't think positional flexibility and scarcity should have dictated my pick after seeing the offense taken in the top 60.

My favorite pick was Strasburg in the 5th. Least was Bruce 2.14. I like Bruce but does not feel like a late 2nd round pick when I think about him.
