Your worst mistake on draft day 2004?

Oh. I forgot. After I picked Piazza in the 3rd, I rebounded nicely and grabbed Palmeiro in the 4th for the steal of the draft, wisely passing on Tejada, Carlos Lee, and Hudson. :-°

Ibanez and JD Drew

I panicked and took Ibanez in the 13th and JD Drew in the 15th of a 10 Team draft...I dropped Ibanez for Carlos Pena and JD Drew has no hamstring...

Still early in the year. 4th round is way too early for Lee and Palmeiro but not for Tejada and Hudson.

Mine? Showing up late...

As a result, the auto pick used my top picks included


Bonds (great bat, but will get half the chances... wouldnt have been my pick), Smoltz and Gagne (great players, but not for the first 2/3 rounds when draft is making a run on infielders :/), Loaiza (raise your hand if you think hes gonna do That again?), and L. Gonz (doin fine, but his arms going to give out any time now :/ )

I can see jeter in the third. He also went in the third in my public league: great average, ton of runs, decent stolen bases, about 15 homers.

About 4 or 5 people laughed at me for taking Renteria in the 4th, I couldn't understand why, I say hes worth it.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

14 team league. Mistakes probably Abreau in 3rd (already drafted Beltran in 1st), M Byrd in 15th. Best picks were M Mulder in 7th, Hinkse in 12th, Lorretta in 13th, C Guzman in 20th.

I guess i now know who the owners in all my yahoo leagues are whose picks at the draft i laugh at every time. I find it humorous this post was even made, evaluating your draft based on 2 weeks worth of stats!! I'm sure everyone who drafted Halladay last year woulda said he was a mistake. We all know how he turned out. But i did get a kick outta almost all the picks you guys posted!
