The Roto Times:

Round-4.......Esteban Loaiza by Matt Watson senior writer.

The Fantasy Baseball Guide "Professional Edition:

Round-6.......Kaz Matsui? Way too high for unproven talent.
Round-7.......Mark Bellhorn by Todd Zola :~(

He picked Bellhorn ahead of Kent, A.Boone, Oswalt...I'm not kidding!

Yeah I noticed that. The Matsui pick is ok, yes he is unproven, but you have to take a chance on this guy. He is the real deal.

I thought Rolen was high, but 3rd base looks thin this year.

I don't see the round 7 pick your talking about, there is no Todd Zola in my mag.

One of the most laughable is Funston's top 50. Pretty funny stuff.

Another? How about MLB.com rating Pettitte as the 14th besy SP?
8-o

Actually, Zola's "strategy" in picking Bellhorn that early was that he expects a monster season from him in 2004, to go with multiple position eligibility. However, if Bellhorn was one of his sleepers he expected to break-out in 2004, he still should have waited until the 15th round or later to select him. No one else seems to care about Mark Bellhorn. The funny part was that after the draft each owner selected their best and worst picks of the draft, and Zola didn't even list Bellhorn as his. ;-)
