EddieK selects Lance Berkman, 1B, HOU

Hey man. Good pick. I read today in Baseball Diegest that Berkman has the highest career sluggling percentage ever by a switch-hitter. I would have guessed a 100 guys before picking Berkman for that. Chipper is 3rd all-time with Mantle 2nd.

Team Jojo selects Kevin Youkilis 1B/3B Boston Red Sox. Maybe a tad early for him but he plays 2 positions which is a plus

Boy am I regretting trading that 3rd round pick now. Ouch! There are 3 players I really, really, really want right here and it's tough to decide. Do I pick SP, 2B or C? I don't know exactly what positions are more valued than others.

There isn't an exact formula, but at this point I go with the best player available. When you're looking at positions try to project who will be there at your next pick, if you see a significant drop in one position that might be the way to go too.

Okay this is probably a little early for his position but with me not having another pick till the 4th round the H-Town Bombers are picking Brian McCann, C, Braves. I don't want to miss out on the best hitting catcher in baseball because outside of him, Joe Mauer, Russell Martin, Geovany Soto and Victor Martinez I think there is a huge dropoff.

Sac is on the clock. He's on now, hopefully he makes his pick soon

Yep...I hope so. Then I hope I get to pick tonight, though highly unlikely. Mainly due to a volunteer project I signed up for tomorrow and I'll be out in mother nature for 12 hours. And I can't seem to log on with my Blackberry to AF.com.

That'll work if it's close to my pick. If not, I'd have to make up a list of a few players and I'd have to research them tonight. Waterproof has my cell# so I'll just see who has been picked when I leave in the morning and hopefully I can get texted who's been picked ahead of me.
