I absolutely killed in the mid to later rounds of the draft:
- Edwin Encarnacon in the 13th round. As of today he was the 2nd ranked player in our league.
-Alejandro De Aza in the 14th round. He's had a couple of big games and been the difference in at least one matchup for me this year.
-Joe Saunders in the 19th round. He's a top 30 pitcher so far this year. I know it won't last, but it's been great so far.
-Trading for Roy Halladay. My pitching was looking weak, and I needed an ace. I gave up a couple of good players and a first rounder, but it looks like it's going to pay off at least for this year.
-Signing Derek Lowe after the draft. He's been a huge help, except when I needed him to keep pace with Felix Hernandez.
The early part of the draft. I like Castro, Kinsler, and Shields as my top 3 picks, but from there on out it was bad.
-BJ Upton in the 4th. He missed over a month, but has been good since, so this might not be such a bad pick.
-JP Arencibia in the 5th. He's been pretty inconsistent so far and his k's are killing me.
-Logan Morrison in the 6th. He's been pretty average, not the breakout I was expecting.
-Paul Goldschmidt in the 7th. See above.
-Alfonso Soriano in the 9th. What the fuck was I thinking?
My offense is very inconsistent, but it scores in bunches, and my pitching is solid. It should keep me in the playoff hunt all year. I just need one or two of my early draft picks to break out.
