In a keeper league I just sent Fielder packing for Melky and Morneau. Kind of surprised I could get anything decent for him.

it's draft day.

My top 5 are:
Rodon - I'm giving him the nod here despite most favoring Aiken
Aiken
Kolek - some talk about him slipping due to so many hard throwing HS'ers getting TJ
Jackson
Gordon

I want to see the Twins pick from one of these 5 at #5. They better not pass on Kolek if he starts slipping due to irrational concerns.

and on that note, you can go ahead and scratch Trea Turner from your prospect lists.

Tons of raw skill but he doesn't BB and will have dreadfully awful stretches. I picked him up last weekend but somehow he didn't make it into my lineup this week. Bummer.
