2 - Grady Sizemre, OF, CLE - Was a no brainer to me, helps you in each cat.
3 - Victor Martinez, C, CLE - 4th year in a row I drafted him, like to get C out of the way.
4 - Travis Hafner, 1B, CLE - Might have reached...not sure
5 - Cole Hamels, SP, PHI - Again, might have reached but I wanted to get my staff ace.

10 - Johnny Damon, OF, NYY - Not sure about the PT, but if he leads off he will score lots of runs.

13 - Kevin Gregg, CL, FLA - Again, not thrilled with this, but closers went like hot cakes.
14 - Fransisco Liriano, SP, MIN - Seems to me like a risk worth taking in round 14.
