I like the Josh Johnson pick - I'm expecting a nice bounce back in SD. ;-D

I just took him in Rd 16 of Masters for just that reason. Would have been nice to get him a round later, but didn't want to take the risk of him lasting another 15 picks.

I had him at the top of a list of 12 arms and all the others were all ready gone so I feel real good about getting him this late.

Estrada slipped a ton, he's been the top pitcher on my list for a few rounds now.

I'm a bit nervous with the drop in velocity we saw last year, but his change is filthy. As long as his HR/9 doesn't get too out of hand, his ratios should be solid.

I was debating greatly about taking Estrada over Kluber, two possible breakout candidates in Masters. As an Estrada owner during the early part of last year, I saw taking Estrada as more of a trust exercise. His supporting peripherals look good though.

I hope everyone is sick of seeing your short lists disappear before your eyes 'cause I sure am, of course I do have about 30 picks to wait thru.
