Where's your team? Could you put it in your signature so I don't have to search for it?

If you change one thing, doesn't everything else change? For instance, if I say take Kinsler in the third instead of F-Her, then you don't take Phillips and so on.

Of course! I was hoping you could predict the future and tell me the best possible draft of all time...kidding.

You had said that four pitchers in the first ten rounds was too much. I agreed. But given the pitchers taken in the first 11 Rounds, what should I have gone after instead? That's why I posted the first 11 Rounds. What in the team I did could have been improved with the slots I took those extra pitchers? I hope that made sense. I'm at work and dodging all the suits walking past my desk. So, if this isn't in complete sentences.

:D

PS- This was a mock draft as I prepare for the real thing tomorrow night.

Instead of taking 4 pitchers so early, you could have taken three and had a better offense. You didn't need Johan here too.

Your definitely not weak at pitching. Don't think you need 4 number one pitchers. You're weak on average and speed.
