Fielder is the guy I wanted with the 14th pick and was ready for Harper when you sniped me and I just couldn't pull the trigger on Puig.

I feel slightly better knowing I sniped you :-D For some reason I was trying hard to convince myself if I picked E5 that Harper would make it back to me. Ultimately what swayed me is that I like watching the Nats on MLB TV more than the Jays ;-)

At pick 8 I was microscoping 4 batters. I looked at 4 Top Whatever lists and each was kind of different from the other. So Beltre it was.

I like the nice high floor Davis and Votto provide for my 1 and 2. Now if only Davis can shave another 2 points of his K% like last year..

Nobody wants to take a shot at the Puig pick, eh?

12+ team drafts can be surprising when you have a feeling a player might not come back to you... Lots of reaches already, but it's to be expected. I made some terrible reach picks last year and it ruined my year, but I bet I'll reach at least a couple times this year as well.

Nope. He was who I was gonna take at 2.04. You took him at 2.03 so Votto it was.
