For example, Kris Medlen was drafted 55th in Pond Scum, and has just been taken 104th in Masters. Conversely, James Shields went 65th in Masters, and Pond Scum waited until pick 105.
Any thoughts on these very different valuations of two pitchers? For me, Medlen went just after I picked Bumgarner, whom I do like a fair bit more. I would have taken Shields in Round 8 if he had made it back to me - and around pick 100 seems about right.
What do others think?
My take is " Medlen in the 5th ".
I think Medlin went about two rounds too early in Pond Scum, and that Shields went about two rounds too early in Masters.
I also think that Tex (4.13 in Masters, 3.10 in Pond Scum) went at least a round early in Pond Scum, and maybe even in Masters.
By the way, keep in mind that Masters has 15 teams, compared to Pond Scum's 14. Probably doesn't make a huge difference, but by this point in the draft it has an effect.
