Draft Day


So I'm assuming everyone is cool with the draft date and time (save Ed)? The only other issue that has been reported was I erroneously removed Justin Upton from Client #9's team instead of brother B.J. Upton. I am currently trying to figure out how to get Justin back on the team in place of B.J. It shouldn't be a problem.

Otherwise, let me know if there are any issues.

Check this out. Here is a look at the 2010 average draft positions for the top 12 players.

1. Albert Pujols
2. Hanley Ramirez
3. Alex Rodriguez
4. Ryan Braun
5. Chase Utley
6. Matt Kemp
7. Prince Fielder
8. Carl Crawford
9. Miguel Cabrera
10. Tim Lincecum
11. Mark Teixeira
12. David Wright

And here are the 2010 actual results in terms of fantasy value-

1. Carlos Gonzalez
2. Carl Crawford
3. Albert Pujols
4. Joey Votto
5. Miguel Cabrera
6. Josh Hamilton
7. Roy Hallady
8. Adam Wainwright
9. Jose Bautista
10. Felix Hernandez
11. Robinson Cano

12. Hanley Ramirez

Who's going to be this years Joey Votto? Or Robinson Cano? Does this change your approach to drafting? Will you go with the safe pick that is highly rated or will you do your homework and find the next Carlos Gonzalez?

Are we still doing the moronic snake draft? I thought we attempted to cancel this silly method of unfairness last draft year.

How about getting with the program this year and make the draft equivalent to every draft in professional sports!!!

Two words: Bill Hall!

Yep, the new Astros second bagger is my pick to be the best candidate for most productivity for draft value.

Now don't be sharing this information with just anyone. We need to keep this on the down low as I'm keeping my fingers crossed he slips into the 6th round where I can scoop him up!

For now, the snake draft stays, unless there is enough support to overturn it (which I don't believe there is). If I am mistaken, let me know. I'm not going to call a vote if the votes aren't there.

we voted last year..and it was turned down. If I recall...you (Jim) said the only reason I voted against it was becasue I had a late 1st/early 2nd. Tables have turned for me this year and my vote would remain the same
