Excellent work R&C. I was looking at mockdraftcentral's results and thought alot of the picks seemed off (as I'm sure they tend to be in January). This report looks quite a bit more accurate.

Anyone else salivating at Matt Holliday if his MDP holds at 20? He's a pretty safe pick in the 2nd round and put up top 15 numbers last year. I'd take him in the top 15 easily, getting him anywhere after 15 is bargain time.

I may pull Rasmus AND Bruce at those prices. I'm also always a sucker for Carlos Quentin.

I am really feeling big Jay Bruce this year as well

Nice work on this post... I tend to look at ADP's after around 80 to see bargains (especially on SP) -- here is my early take of guys I like and where they are being drafted:

Latos - #83 - could be a top 7 pitcher all year. This is my first pitcher off the board in Round 5.

Hanson - #85 - ditto Latos

Oswalt - #99 - yes please. Whip and wins will justify a top 60 pick and some.

Garza - #129 - gonna be very excited to pitch in NL Central. Expect uptick in K/9

Scherzer - #132 - i expect 2nd half 2010 numbers to continue, could be 195-200k pitcher in 2011

Morrow - #195 - wow and thank you. provided whip is better in 2011 this is one of the best value picks around.

Nolasco - #218 - perfect SP #4

Chacin - #254 - ppl still asleep at the wheel. this kid is a sleeping gem in Colorado.

Kimbrel - #266 - pretty certain he gets closer job and vaults into top 15 closer status

Hudson - #287 - see Chacin. Sleepy NL West pitcher made huge splash in 2nd half of 2011.

Nice post El Burro. I see a bunch of players who aren't on the top 300 list who most likely will be by the last update. I guess these following players stuck out because I'm in a 13 team league so they will definitely be drafted in my league.

Pitchers:
J.A. Happ (Solid)
Tommy Hunter (Nice 2010 Stats)
Mike Leake (Big Potential)
Brandon Webb (Risk/Reward)

If They Start:
J.P. Arencibia
Brandon Belt
Freddie Freeman
Desmond Jennings
Kila Ka'aihue
C-Swihart
1B-Hosmer
2B-Altuve
3B-Castellanos
SS-Russell
MI-Johnson
CI-Butler
OF-Marte/Hamilton/Soler/Polanco/Ozuna
UT-Taylor
SP-Miller/Odorizzi/Wood/DeSclafani/Rodon/Walker
RP-Chapman/Holland/Garcia
DL-Rendon/Smyly/Lamb/Lee
RS-Baez/Latos
