I had the 3rd pick and was expecting to take soriano....u can imagine my amazement when the first two picks were Pujols and then Pedro!

I took arod so fast!!!

taking Pujols ahead of Arod is understandable, but taking Pedro was a bit early. I can think of worse players they could have chosen though. Congrats on getting Arod.

no, arod should go 1st in every draft.

same thing happened to me...twice!

In my two yahoo autopick leagues i got a-rod. I logged on after the draft and saw a-rod and thought "oh, i must have gotten the #1 pick" nope. I got him at #2 and #3. pujols went before him both times and pedro did once. crazy.

the thing is, these leagues are active owners. both leagues have like 50 posts on the message board in a couple days. how can anyone not rank arod first, huge stats...multiple positions.?

When i first started autopick drafts to save time i always got like 11th pick so i just started not putting the top players at the top, then i got 3rd pick, last year and it took beltran over soriano, prior, guerro, etc. Some owners this year may have been like me, they wanted arod but jsut made a mistake. I learned from mine, this year i got arod 2nd pick and in the 2nd round took renteria, talk about set in the infield, i got reyes 8th round and took nick johnson at first, so it again may just be a mistake they'll learn from later, i know i did

Pedro I agree was way to early because of his injuries, but I would draft Pujols ahead of A-Rod.

I think A-Rod is going to good year, but have lower homeruns and steals.
