Post your final 2 picks in the draft - 2008!

Postby Dr.DooM » Wed Mar 19, 2008 10:13 am

The draft is almost over but how players determine the final two picks can be interesting. Do you go for the "Hail Mary" approach and choose high-risk or injured/injury-risk players? Do you go with mediocre relievers or bench players with positional flexibility? Or do go with rookies/young unknowns with a big upside?

Personally I went with a combination of upside and MR in my 10-man mixed redraft league. My last two picks were:

Round 21: Billy Butler (my league does not buy into hype very much)
Roound 22: Jon Rauch (is my 4th MR as part of my MR strat to pad numbers)
Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.
