A Bunch of Stuff to Read While I Draft...

posted by Jon Williams
Jason Grey of ESPN is probably my favorite fantasy baseball analyst. In this article he gives lots of Draft Day Auction advice. Pretty standard stuff but good reading anyway. I always slot my auction dollars in a similar fashion though I probably go more extreme to the hitting side than most will dare.

My buddy Brian Joura writes about his own Daniel Murphy obsession. I know I have one. I recently traded a $26 Brandon Phillips for a $6 Daniel Murphy(w/Seth McClung) in my primary NL-only league. I wish someone would wager with me...

A lot of owners are avoiding Texas Ranger starters as they used to avoid Colorado Rockies pitchers. Because of the great hitter's park where they play their home games. I have a hunch those owners will begin making exceptions with the great crop of arms coming up and the tremendous investment in pitching minds like Mike Maddux and Nolan Ryan to guide them. Though expecting Kris Benson to become an ownable pitcher is not dissimilar to expecting Mike Tyson to win a humanitarian award.

I went into winter with the assumption that Elijah Dukes would be a regular in the outfield for the Washington Nationals. Despite signing Adam Dunn, everything I read suggested that remained the case, until now...

My favorite Top Prospects List...

Gary Sheffield is a New York Met (and my boy Daniel Murphy still has a full time job!) and could reach 500 homers in New York. I knew the Mets couldn't start the season without an aging injury risk on the roster!

What a bummer. I'm still thinking it's best to hang on to Dukes.
