KFFL's Fantasy Baseball Analysis Draft (BAD) and League is unlike most expert fantasy games. First, this isn't a mock draft. At end of the 2014 season, we'll crown a champion of this rotisserie baseball league. Second, our 15-team, 28-round fantasy baseball draft doesn't come with post-game summaries. It provides you with each participant's mindset at the time he selected.
1) 2B/OF Dustin Ackley, Seattle Mariners
Steve Gardner, USA TODAY/Sports Weekly | Roster
Post-hype sleeper? Perhaps. He looks like he'll get at least the majority of at-bats in left field and most likely lead off. Dual eligibility makes him a solid bench pickup.
2) OF Grady Sizemore, Boston Red Sox
Andrew Martinez, RotoWire | Roster
Ackley kid have something left?
If he stays healthy. ... aw, who am I kidding? Here's betting against Jackie Bradley Jr. and on a player who once went 30-30.
3) 2B Brian Roberts, New York Yankees
Howard Bender, FanGraphs | Roster
Just picking up some depth here for the middle infield. Joe Girardi says he's trucking him out there every day so we'll see how long he lasts. Contemplated some young hopefuls but would rather have guaranteed MLB playing time right n
4) RP Danny Farquhar, Seattle Mariners
Jeff Paur, RTSports | Roster
Fernando Rodney certainly isnít a lock to keep the closerís job after his shaky season last year. Farquhar is next in line for saves for the Mariners, so Iím just looking to get lucky with this pick. You never know.
5) RP Sergio Santos, Toronto Blue Jays
Ryan Bloomfield, Baseball HQ | Roster
I always like to handcuff my 2nd RP. Hours before this pick, Janssen was being held out of action (shoulder). Though minor, it reminds me that Santos would be next in line and owns great skills.
6) 2B Dan Uggla, Atlanta Braves
Nicholas Minnix, KFFL | Roster
I took Uggla? Awww, eff it. I'm done. Guess I was just searching for some rebound/upside/hope in the middle infield. None of the pitchers thrilled me at the time. Maybe there's something to Uggla's winter spent on his swing or something.
7) OF Robbie Grossman, Houston Astros
Mark Bloom, RotoExperts | Roster
Grossman has some speed and can hit for a decent average. More importantly, he has a full-time job, which is tough to come by at this point in the draft.
