1. What was your draft strategy?
I'm not sure I really had one. I tried to take the best player available...until Pujols was available with my first pick - so that idea went out of the window pretty early. I didn't want to reach for players too much...until I just had to have Votto.
I guess really I had some guys I really wanted- Wright, Kemp, Votto, Drew spring to mind. I didn't want to take pitchers too early, but then go hard at them in mid-rounds, as I thought there was good value to be had, and not over pay for saves.
Oh and I looked at what it took to be 4th in every category last year (ie 90 points) and aimed to get somewhere close to that.
2. Who do you think was the steal of the draft?
Difficult question. Pujols at 4 might prove to be a relative steal, A-rod if he only misses a month, Mauer if his back proves a non-issue might beat all of those. Victorino in the 6th might also be very good value.
3. Who do you think was the reach of the draft?
A bit easier to answer. Aviles would be my first choice, Gardner also - might steal lots of bases, but could have been had at least two rounds later, probably more. Maybin might be the same.
4. Who do you think will finish in the top 3?
Even more difficult to answer...I'm really happy with my team, so I would like to think I've got a shot, I like Amazin' Oopah's team, and for my third I'll go for Rock.
5. Who do you think will finish in the bottom 3?
No idea...Thomas, Emb0lus, and Oscar because he always finishes in the cellar...
6. The best pick that you made
I hope it is David Wright over Pujols, or Kemp over Quentin / BJ Upton. It could turn out to be Gregg or Corpas is either of those guys get 35 saves this year.
7. The worst pick that you made
It might be Justin Upton, if he doesn't progress this year. But he might also turn into the steal of the draft.
8. What player is the biggest key to your success?
Not sure I have any on player as a key. But overall it is that I have a lot of young players- I need a high proportion of them to work out and improve this year. Guys like Longoria, Kemp, Votto, Drew, Upton, Gallardo, Ethier, Wainwright - just about my whole team!! I'm all about upside with this team - it just need to happen. I think it will.
9. Your team's weak/strong points
As above really. I need my young guys to work out. If they don't I'm screwed!
