I actually have two teams, but I'm going to seperate them to make my first post to this forum not so boorish.

This is a 10 team H2H league, with AL and NL draft pools. Here is scoring (cbssportline)

1B - Singles 1 point
2B - Doubles 2 points
3B - Triples 3 points
BB - Walks (Batters) 1 point
CS - Caught Stealing -1 point
HBP - 1 point
HR - Home Runs 4 points
KO - Strikeouts (Batter) -0.5 points
R - Runs 1 point
RBI - Runs Batted In 1 point
SB - Stolen Bases 2 points

Scoring for Pitching Categories
BBI - Walks Issued (Pitchers) -1 point
BS - Blown Saves -2 points
ER - Earned Runs -2 points
HA - Hits Allowed -1 point
INN - Innings 3 points
K - Strikeouts (Pitcher) 1 point
L - Losses -5 points
S - Saves 5 points
SO - Shutouts 5 points
W - Wins 7 points

(gosh that simple copy/paste formatted nice!)

I had the second pick in a snaking order (#2, #19, #22, #39, #42......)

Here's My draft, plus commentary:
1)Ramirez, Hanley SS FLA (was targetting Pujols and intended on grabbing, say, JJ Hardy late. Ah well...)
2)Utley, Chase 2B PHI (exactly as planned)
3)Berkman, Lance 1B HOU (Went for the last elite 1b)
4)Hamels, Cole SP PHI (Was targetting BJ Upton, but he was taken the pick before. Wasn't intending on taking Pitching this early, but nothing grabbed my eye for hitting. Peavy and Haren were still on the board. I chose Hamels)
5)Rios, Alex RF TOR (Started grabbing for OF'ers to fill out squad before it got too thin. Soriano was still on the board, but I'm unfortunately a little averse to guys over 31. Probably should have picked Soriano)
6)Crawford, Carl LF TB (I think he'll bounce back and add power)
7)McCann, Brian C ATL (Soto and Martin just came off the board. He is my favorite at the Catcher this year)
8)Ludwick, Ryan RF STL(You know, i'm not convinced. He's my OF that concerns me most. Ordonez still on the board, but I'll take my chances with younger player)
9)Lester, Jon SP BOS (Good bargian. I agree with the 17 Win 3.5 Era projection)
10)Pena, Carlos 1B TB (filling U spot with best hitter still on board)
11)Verlander, Justin SP DET (Buying somewhat low)
12)Harang, Aaron SP CIN (Buying very low on this guy)
13)Weaver, Jered SP ANA (underrated)
14)Gordon, Alex 3B KC (this pick was a little nonsensical. I didn't have a 3b and took the best upside guy. Should have taken RP [which I didn't notice was an enforced category this year, DOH! It wasn't a required position in the mock drafts!!!] If he falters, Glaus and Beltre are on WW)
15)Lowe, Derek SP ATL (Not a high K guy, but a nice value this far into draft)
16)Ethier, Andre RF LA (Autopick kicked in while researching)
17)Hoffman, Trevor RP MIL (Best projected RP still on board)
18)Hardy, J.J. SS MIL (Darn, autopick again!)
19)Garza, Matt SP TB (I project his Ks to rise)
20)Baker, Scott SP MIN (Even with some regression he'll be good)
21)Street, Huston RP COL (Best closer who is a good bet for a WHIP of less than 1.3)

After the draft I dropped JJ Hardy and added Health Bell, RP SD and dropped Street for Chad Qualls, RP Ari

C McCann
1b Berkman

OF Rios
U Pena

Any thoughts?
