-see, I don’t agree with this for “draft strategy” i do for an in-season strategy. The draft is all about getting maximum value for your picks. MRs like heath bell pop up every year, for free. I’ll never draft stud MRs, they have no trade value unless they become closers. MRs are people you pick up in-season when you have extra space on your roster and you need whip/era help. I’d much rather draft a mike napoli, josh fields, or jack cust who may seem like garbage but have an outside shot of becoming $10+ players, and thus useful trade bait.

]]>Anyway, liked the ideas and I have to think about the idea of not worrying about speedsters until. Scary thought, but i think it has merit.

]]>This post is much better than our point/counterpoint in terms of showing our different draft mentalities.

Will be interesting to see how each of us perform in expert leagues this year…

Go Santana!
