My observation were that:
too high--DLee, Sizemore, Soriano, Chavez, Prior
too low--Oswalt, Beltran


Also, notice that no catchers or closers were taken in the top 50.
Would you include VMart, Mauer, BWags, Rivera, or Lidge in the top 50?

DLee - Probably about right in my mind. Other than Ortiz, there is nobody drafted below Lee that I would automatically draft ahead of him. You could make a case for some guys, but overall it's close.

Soriano ;-D

Prior - He's off my radar, too much risk for me.

Oswalt - If you look at the raw draft spot, I agree, but he was still the 5th pitcher taken, so it's hard to argue. All depends on how the picks fall out.

Beltran - I disagree here. I wouldn't pick him ahead of anyone that went before him.

Ortiz is too far down, he should be in at least the top 10 if not 6.

Reyes was drafted too early for a non-keeper, IMO.

I don't like Beltran in my top 30 let alone number 16 on a list. BronxBomber has the ideal top 7 list for me, but after that I have a differing opinion. It's just impossible to create a list like this that more that a few people will agree upon.
