Yeah but you need Colon and Steady more.

Anyway if Uribe goes, Utley and Ginter will be sitting there for a few more rounds.

I like Roberts since you need a 2B, especially with Sosa in tow in B'More. I see 100+ runs and 35+ SB if he bats in front of them. You have decent power, but Furcal is the only double digit SB guy you have.

Then I would go with a pitcher. Maddux is the safe bet, Escobar is the high reward pick.

Hmmm...well I never thought Fatolo would get picked here. Still not going to pick him as he was probably the worst option on the entire list in my mind going in and remains so.

I had figured 2 of Pavano, Maddux, Uribe (or Roberts).

I would take Guardado to stay competitive in saves. He's really heads and shoulders above the other closers available.

I would also take Roberts. He'll be a very nice 2B for you. He should be able to repeat his numbers from last year, and possibly improve on them. He's probably at or near his peak performance, and the 12th or 13th round is an excellent spot to take a 100 R, 25-30 SB guy. He'll be a nice compliment to your team, and should help you stay near the top of SB and R.

I guess that is supposed to be one of those opposite nicknames?....

Like call Vazquez or Weaver "Mr. Fearless"

or Soriano "The Brain"

You don't need him, but GAnderson looks nice. I'm not big on (he aint heavy, he's my Bartolo). Pavano and Livan look ok.

Guardado is one of only 4 closers to post a WHIP under 1.00 the last two seasons. He should improve his save numebrs this year as well.

I like Colon a little more than Pavano for the fact that Colon strikes out more batters.

I'd take Colon and either Livan or Odalis. Any combination of these guys is solid for rounds 12 and 13.
