12) Jgator - Gator Mafia
Okay Jgator. Time to make 2 picks.
The Gator Mafia selects Mark Teixeira and Alfonso Soriano
Eddie is back up
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 is on the clock. PM sent his way
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
Cappys Gloryhounds is up. I just sent him a message
Gloryhounds take Chase Utley, PHI, 2B
the Crazies select Johan Santana SP Mets
The Cuban Raft Riders are up
Evan Longoria, 3B, TB
FalconsFan is on the clock.
Evan Longoria, 3B, TBFalconsFan is on the clock.
Dang it! You stole my player!
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.
The Change We Need selects Ian Kinsler, 2B, TEX
Waterproof_ace83 is now on the clock

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.
well feel free to PM picks if you need to.
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.
With the 23rd pick in round 2, Dawgsrulz picks Carlos Quentin, OF, CHW.
WTA is on the clock.
