I only drafted him because he fell all the way to 12. Now I am starting to think there are 11 smarter owners than me in my league! Braun would have been a no brainer at 12 but that didnt even come close to happening!
Yeah ... I thought the same thing. Sorry imphishy Taking Rollins late 1st round isn't too bad. But passing up Braun to take him in the 1st - oy!
I picked him 11th, and it still seems like a decent pick (HanRam, Pujols, Wright, Reyes, Miggy, Braun, Sizemore, Hamilton, Howard, and Johan were all taken ahead). I hate scrounging for steals, especially with 1-dimensional hitters. I liked the idea of making myself strong in that category, with solid numbers in the other 4 cats, in the middle infield right off the start. Guess I could've taken Teix, but I already had him on another team and wanted this squad to have a different "flavor". And it's not like he hasn't been sucking too. But outside of the guys that I mentioned, who else even felt like a 1st round pick? I guess one of the "big two" of second-basemen (Utley, Kinsler) - though when picking Rollins, my plan was to pick whichever of those 2 came back to me in round 2.
