This website should be found on the "Not so talented Mr. Roto"

Some comments:

Round 2:
Juan Pierre? I mean, the guy can hit a bit and steal bags, but I wouldn't take him this early. I thought Abreu would go around this spot

Miguel Cabrera in round 2? I am really high on this kid myself, but I wouldn't take him with the 20th overall pick

What is the Jeter guy smoking? And can I have some? Especially when he could have a 40+ home run guy or any pitcher besides Santana/Unit, but instead takes a second SS (that's arguably not even the 2nd best SS)

Jimmy Rollins....already been said. wow.

Round 3:
I'd think Sheff would have already been picked, especially having had his nagging injury fixed.
I'll never understand why people take closers that early, though it's not unheard of.
I think it's pretty early to take Wells, considering the OF that are still available.

Round 4:
Orlando Cabrera? Come on...I'd rather take a solod 2b like Giles and take my chances later on someone like Guillen or Jose Reyes

Podsednik was also way too early for a 1 category guy

Round 5:
I like the Blalock pick, but Wright was taken way too early. The writer complains that 3b is shallow and then passes up on Blalock and A-Ram to take Chipper Jones? I don't think that guy's got much left in the tank, personally

I was surprised to see guys like Al Leiter, Kevin Brown, Barry Zito, Troy Glaus, Mark Loretta, and AJ Burnett fall so far. Needless to say, I will not be modeling my drafts this year after this clown :-t
