BN - Roger Clemens

I never go in with a plan per se. I have guys that I like, but there's really no targeting except for generalities. Unless there's a significant mispricing, I don't like closers before the 8th or starters before the 4th. That said, when my 4th rd pick came up i couldn't find a reason to take my other options in front of Nathan, so things just fell that way. The only hard target I had was Rich Hill in the 11th and Buser ruined that.

The Good:
I got my #1 3B, #1 OF, #1 CL, #2 SP, and #3 C. That's a big haul as far as I'm concerned. Chavez could end up as some solid trade bait. I was happy to get the Sexson/Roberts combo considering the average of the two is like drafting 2 more Mike Camerons, who i drafted before them. It was like moving up draft picks for free.

The Bad:
SP depth is weak. Sowers is still somewhat unknown, Mussina is old, and Clemens might not even play. I'm always a big fan of MRs, especially ones that could close as well, so I have that in my favor as a mitigating factor. Helton and Kent could be nice surprises, but they could just as easily be mediocre.

BN - Taylor Tankersley (22.3)
BN - Joe Blanton (23.10)

Draft Plan:
I chose the 10th spot in the draft hoping for the best value. For me, anything less than #1 is not #1, the next 6 guys could go in any order, and most of them are not without a degree of risk. Huge upside, yes, but given the choice between one of them and two of guys like MCab, Wright, Crawford, Hafner, Beltran, etc, I went with a late round pick. I'm happy with Vlad and Teix, but would much preferred the Crawford/Hafner combo cheese walked away with. Jerk.

So, guys I'm happy with. I have high hopes for Kendrick, 11th round seemed about right for him. Thome in the 6th wasn't in the plan, but seemed like great value. I'm a big Haren fan this year. I walked out with some of my top sleepers in Corey Hart, Cabrera, and Beltre, missed others. Hard to not like Posada in the 17th.

Not so happy I missed the 2nd closer run even though I passed a couple times on all the mid-level guys. Maybe Dotel will make me look like a genious. :-o I don't know if it's groupthink or we all read the same Yahoo columnist, but nobody felt like rolling the dice on those high upside pitchers (except Sheets :-C ). So I ended up with Harden at 9.10 and Weaver at 12.3. So far Harden's making me look like a genius, maybe one of them will pan out.

Overall, more risk than I normally like in my team but I didn't really reach for anyone except maybe Bedard. My offense looks great and hopefully my pitching staff won't fail me.

1B Connor Jackson ARI 17.08 (200)
2B Ryan Freel CIN 13.08 (152)
SS Freddy Sanchez DET 16.05 (185)
3B Miguel Cabrera FLA 1.08 (8)

SP Carlos Zambrano CHC 4.05 (41)

RP Huston Street OAK 6.05 (65)
RP Chad Cordero WAS 10.05 (113)
P Matt Cain SFG 8.05 (89)

BN Pat Burrell OF PHI 18.05 (209)
BN Kevin Millwood P TEX
BN Tim Hudson P ATL
BN Jeff Francis P COL
BN BJ Upton 3B TB

What Went Right: Although I had targeted Utley and Texirea in rounds 1 and 2, I have no complaints about the combo of Cabrera and Sizemore. Rounds 3, 4 and 5 went as planned. I have Dunn and Jones ranked higher than most experts. I wanted to snag Zambrano or Peavy to anchor my staff. I struggled with Saves last year so getting two quality closers with little wear and tear was a plus. I made a conscious effort to keep my roster young.

What Went Wrong: Matt Cain was the first pick that made me wince. Chris Young should have the kind of year to warrant a mid-rd pick, Cain is a reach. I pushed the panic button a little early and started looking for SB and AVG earlier than I planned. In hindsight, I pulled the trigger on Russell Martin a little early. Quality Catchers remained on the board until much later in the draft. I completely missed out on the mid to late Rd 1B I had targeted.

What needs to happen for Oscar's Winners to take the Championship: A. Jones, Dunn, and Francouer need to have close to career numbers in all categories. Cain needs to exhibit the "no hitter stuff" that some "experts” say he has. Pat Burrell needs to step up and take advantage of hitting after Howard (Who are you going to pitch to with "ducks on the pond"?). The veteran P I AQued at the end of the draft need to be consistent.

Outlook: Getting out of the 2nd Division can be a reality
Competing for the Championship is a possibility
