Nope, for me it was between Longo & Puig at 2.02 and I took a shot at the proven Longo not getting injured over the wild Puig injuring himself.

A reach is a guy you could have had later IMO, Puig is ranked inside the top 25 everywhere I look and I had him at 14 on my personal sheet. His aggressive hitting approach should net him a lot of RBI if he's ever dropped to the cleanup spot, which is one thing I'll be hoping for.

Maybe if Guerrero can prove he can hit in the 2-hole, but that's a long shot

I think Mattingly would have Puig hit leadoff or second. At least, that's what the initial thought is right now. I can see Puig hitting 5th.

Anyhow, I thought I'd look at this league draft and n00bs while Masters is at a standstill. We'll probably see more variation between all three drafts, at least for the first three rounds.

I think the Dodgers are seriously going to give Puig a shot at lead off this spring.

In Yahoo he was actually around 35th when they first opened, he's moved it up

Can I just say I love Gardners picks? He got my dream combo of E5/Ellsbury and at pick 15 no less. That team is setup for success.
