1. What was your draft strategy?
Plain and simple, my plan was to draft a team that could win every category. By doing this I wanted to take the best player available according to my projections for the first few rounds, and then fill in needs at reasonable prices afterward. There are lots of players I like all throughout the draft so I didn't feel the need to reach at any one point. Although I will admit that I was nervous about Scott Kazmir not making it back to me in the 18th round I think it was. I don't think I left any holes in my lineup, but I do worry that I might not have drafted enough HR/SB. For the first 10 or 11 rounds there wasn't a ton of thinking for me though, because I knew who my best player available was. I ended up with quite the compilation of players. Some are young guys with room to grow, others players on my team are reliable players right in their prime, and I also got quite a few older guys that I'm hoping to squeeze another good season out of. I'm very happy with the result.2. Who do you think was the steal of the draft?
To me the steal of the draft was David Price with the 68th pick.3. Who do you think was the reach of the draft?
That would have to be Jose Abreu, but if Oscar thinks he is the real deal and was worried about him not making it back to him, then it was still a fine pick. That could have been the last good first baseman left for Oscar.4. Who do you think will finish in the top 3?
I'll exclude myself because I think most people think their team is the best.... as they probably should. And Everyone else is saying RBV, cords, and Rotoquest, and they have great teams too. I will give some other guys some shout outs that I think can compete for the top spot. I like Oopah, Thomasps3, and Saltydog. 5. The best pick that you made
Also I liked my Scott Kazmir pick a lot and thought I got great value on Michael Cuddyer (even if he doesn't come close to repeating last year, he is still a top 100 player in my book. Top 80 actually).6. The worst pick that you made
Jason Motte, I didn't do my homework with this pick and knew that Trevor Rosenthal was experiencing some minor injuries... I honestly thought Motte was further along than he actually is. He won't be handling 9th inning duties anytime soon.
7. What player is the biggest key to your success?
Health is the key to my success. But as far as players go, my life would be a lot easier if George Springer could deliver on his power and speed promise. Also Giancarlo Stanton and Everth Cabrera are pretty huge pieces to my puzzle, I badly need them to play a full season and to hit well over 30 homers for Stanton, and steal a lot of bases for Cabrera. A bounce back from Teixeira wouldn't hurt either.8. Your team's weak/strong points?
My team weakness is age and health, as well as home run power. my strong points are MIGUEL CABRERA!
as well batting average and starting pitching.9. Which team(s) have as good chance to improve because it is owned by an active manager?
I'll say cords because I know him personally and know he has great in season management (and he executed a couple great trades last year to put himself in contention). I also know that RBV has won this league back to back and that can't happen without good in season management. Rotoquest had good in season management last year from what I saw.10. If you could swap teams with anyone else, whose would you take?
Amazing_Oopah. He has a great foundation I can work with and I'm a sucker for strikeout heavy pitchers and he has a ton of those. Nice draft man, even your auto picks (Craig and Myers) were both targets of mine.
