I agree, they are reaching because it is a mock and nothing is on the line.
I rather look at someones money league draft than a mock draft.
Mock drafts have no repercussions while a money league draft does, and drafting EE that early will haunt most people.
Also its still early to be taking these mocks seriously.
Honestly I am really trying in the Cafe mock. I know that I can't make any moves so I'm treating it as a draft and hold type team. Whoever ends up with the best looking roster wins.

I respect everyone's opinion on Ludwick, especially with his breakout season coming at the age of 29 and a lack of pedigree. However, I just have a feeling that Ludwick will repeat, or come very close to repeating, what he did last year. Generally, when I look at player like Ludwick who have out-of-nowhere breakout seasons, I always evaluate their statistics month-by-month, and pre vs. post all-star break. More often than not, the most prominent indicator of a 1-year wonder are statistics inflated by just a couple good months, or a booming first half followed by a poor second. That is why you won't see me draft someone like Nate McLouth - who had a torrid first half, but petered out during the stretch.
However, with Ludwick, he started strong and ended strong. Other than a semi-slump in June, Ludwick was consistent as one could be. He hit very well on the home and the road, versus LHP and RHP, and both before and after the all-star break. Such consistency , IMO, indicates a season that probably was not a fluke. But for those who will avoid him, I really can't blame you.

Meh. I took him in the 17th round in the Cafe Mock, at a point where the rest of the catchers available were very average IMO. Regardless of the kind of league, taking him that late just means that if he's not quite ready at the beginning of the season I could find a temporary replacement until he is.
