Some More Picks

Wanted to post the latest update of picks I’ve made in my mock draft…

15.02 – OF Milton Bradley, OAK – I feel really good about my OF as a whole after adding Bradley. I think I have a great mix of power and speed with Soriano, Ichiro, Hawpe and now Bradley. He stayed pretty sane last year, too and I think he’s poised for a big year in Oakland.

16.15 – RP Pat Neshek, MIN – Without a real closer, I went with some strong bullpen arms that could either vulture a few saves here and there or take over if the #1 on their team went down. Neshek fits that bill and at worst will pick up some Ws with great rate statistics and strikeouts.

17.02 – SP Tim Hudson, ATL – Oh how the mighty have fallen. I’ve always loved Hudson and it sucks to see him actually get worse once moving to the National League. There are indicators suggesting he is not nearly as bad as his numbers have been, but until the tide turns he is apparently a 17th round pick in a 16 team league.

18.15 – OF Jason Kubel, MIN – Boatloads of potential and still just 24, but he just doesn’t seem to be 100% healthy. As a fifth outfielder, I’ll take a chance.

19.02 – MI Placido Polanco, DET – A homer pick for middle infielder, but I’m also hoping he can carry over his postseason momentum and at least deliver a high batting average and score a bunch of runs.

20.15 – SP Noah Lowry, SF – His numbers are moving the wrong way since his rookie season, though still just 26 years old. Like Hudson, I took him because I like him and hope he can rebound.

21.02 – UT Wily Mo Pena, BOS – I don’t think he’s a .300 hitter by any means, but I’m more interested in the power he has displayed to date than anything else. His upside is 35 home runs with enough playing time and a clean bill of health.
