    So my draft was last night...not too happy.(long)

    Sorry, kind of long.
    10 team #10th overeall pick 7X7 Yahoo non-keeper league.
    Hitting stats: AVG,HR,RBI,Runs,SB,2B,OPS
    Pitching:W,L,SV,K,ERA,WHIPS,HOLDS

    1)Crawford
    2)Braun
    3)Bedard
    4)Tulowitzki
    5)Dunn

    First 5 picks I wasn't to happy about. I liked Braun and Crawford. But when I there were 3 teams ahead of me to pick in the 3rd round Tex, C.Lee and Berkman were still availble. I thought I one would slip too me. All three were picked and sinse there was a run at pitchers the highest rated one left before the drop off was Bedard so I grabbed him. Also SS I felt I needed to address at that point because I knew I would have missed out on a Jeter or Tulowitzki. So I picked Tulo. Dunn was just a gut call since I was lacking power. He will hurt my AVG, but I love the HR, OPS and runs/rbi at not bad.

    6)Felix Hernandez
    7)Cano
    8)Rivera
    9)F.Cordero
    10)Billingsley

    Went for pitching. Cano was the last of the 2B that I had before the drop off. This league is Closer crazy so I doubled up with what I had was the last 2 of the top 10. Billingsley at 10 I was pretty happy about. Sheets, Pedro, McGowan went before him and I thought I got lucky.

    11)Adrian Gonzo
    12)Youkilis
    13)Snell
    14)T.Pena
    15)H.Bell

    I needed a 1B still and think I got a decent one. Youkilis was a rushed pick and I'm not to happy about it. Snell looked to good to be passed up there especially as my #4 starter. Then I grabbed what I felt was the best Holds guys out there in T.Pena and Heath Bell. 5 Holds guys went before that.

    16)Wainwright
    17)Soriano
    18)Ramon Hernandez
    19)Lowell
    20)H.Matsui

    Wainwright at 16 I thought was a steal. Soriano I feel will be a top 5 closer if healthy. Ramon Hernandez was a last minutes idea and I still needed a C. Not big on Lowell and Matsui, but with were he fell I thought was worth the risk.

    21)Turnbow
    22)Dotel
    23)Wang
    24)Thome
    25)Fields

    Turnbow and Dotel were my last efforts for Holds guys. If all holds guys produce the numbers they did last year I will win the catagory.
    Now Wang, Thome and Fields I feel were terrrific value picks.

    Overall I think my pitching is my strength, my team average/runs/SB are middle of the pack. With power and RBI my biggest down fall.

    What do you guys think?

    Those seven stat categories are like the worst case scenario for a player like Carl Crawford...
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."
