I would have taken Miller this round, had it not been for my concern about him not winning the SS job (or even turn into potential trade bait). He's a better for-average hitter and the superior defensive SS but what I'm reading into doesn't give me great confidence. I might be reading too much into it though.


I'm a little worried about that, but the odds of Miller winning the job seem good to me. A trade doesn't seem like a bad outcome -- even if Miller gets moved, I like his chances of being a regular. But I might not be reading enough into it. :-D


...or sent to AAA.

No, I know -- I mean, I'm a little worried about the Tacoma risk, not so worried about the risk of a trade.

Believe me, I saw that article before picking him. I looked at a LOT of articles on that... :*)

No, but batting average still is. :-b

I have no idea if it's a glitch with DraftTracker, but rjforlife has a donut in BA. You're on 2 points for the category (actually 3 because DraftTracker started at 0).

I also show the 0. My average is pretty bad, I probably deserve a 0.

Seems to be a glitch in Draft Tracker, as I am seeing it too. It also does not mark off Hanley Ramirez from the tiers when he is drafted, and John Axford is listed twice. Those are the small errors I have found to this point.

I was torn between Lance Lynn and Kuroda on my last pick. More upside with Lynn, for sure, but I decided to go with the safer option in Kuroda. I knew Lynn wasn't going to make it back to me, but I was hoping he would.

I like the Kuroda pick. He's at some risk for a correction, but not too much IMO. I was considering him the last 2-3 picks before this round; I got suckered into the closer run and Aoki is one of those seemingly quiet sleepers some people would value higher.

Back to Draft Tracker, Hanley is marked and his stats accounted for on my spreadsheet.

I love Aoki. He is one of those guys you can slot in at #3 or #4 OF and just get great consistency from.

The Hanley thing has corrected itself on my board now, too. But for a while, he was not marked as picked, even though it was recognizing his stats in the totals.
