I'll be writing about the draft in depth this week but...

If Tex made it, he was the pick, no question. If not, it would have been whichever guy that was pick that wouldn't have been (Cutch, Stanton, Beltre).

In a trading league, I usually am light on steals, I have enough to be in the middle, then I deal for more if necessary, so that was why Kubel over Rios. I don't believe there is such a thing as pushing a guy up a round or two at that point of the draft, it is all about the intrinsic value of the player to your team and I wanted the stuff Kubel gives more than the stuff Rios does.

Actually, I think I may have wanted them both and thought there was a better chance that Rios slid - and he almost did.

Quick thoughts from my glance:

Tulo a steal at #7

Like Tex where you got him. I've taken him closer to the turn with knowledge nothing else would make it back at 3/4 turn. Also have been going SP in 3rd rd. Me - I know I would have been tempted to take Kershaw/Halladay 2nd rd and hope Hosmer made it around. Were you tempted by the SP duo and/or Josh Hamilton there?

Jason Kubel pick surprises me a little with A Rios on the board (you kind of convinced me to push him up my own ranks). Seems like you pushed Kubel up a round or two. I own him a couple places. Do you see a big power spike coming in ARI?
