1) Jason Castro, C, Houston Astros

Team: Eriq Gardner, The Hardball Times | Roster

Resisted taking a second C because didn't see much value-over-replacement advantage. Castro has skills to be good producer if he wins starting gig in spring. Otherwise, he'll be replaced.

2) Travis Hafner, DH, Cleveland Indians

Team: Pasko Varnica, Mastersball | Roster

Do not shoot me, this is my last pick. What if....?

3) Joe Blanton, SP, Philadelphia Phillies

Team: Tim Heaney, KFFL | Roster

Was going to speculate for saves, but discouraging Brandon Webb news prompted me to grab another stable starter. His '09 K/9 was probably fluky, but he has steady skills otherwise.

4) Brett Myers, SP, Houston Astros

Team: Ray Flowers, Baseball Guys | Roster

Not a bad last pick. Seriously. If he can control the homers, in a tough park for pitchers, he could return 15th-round value.

5) Brett Gardner, OF, New York Yankees

Team: Harold Nichols, Baseball HQ | Roster

Swiped 26 bases in only 248 AB. Looks like he could be on the positive side of a platoon situation, so he might reach 350-400 AB, which means 35-40 SB.

Cleveland Indians DH Travis Hafner
Put simply: What if?

6) Milton Bradley, OF, Seattle Mariners

Team: Steve Gardner, USA Today | Roster

Bradley is a perfect final-round pick: He has lots of potential upside, and it won't hurt to cut him if I need to.

7) Mark Teahen, 3B/OF, Chicago White Sox

Team: Nicholas Minnix, KFFL | Roster

Stagnant player now in prime power years. Offense of his former team - Kansas City Royals - and new one are nearly polar opposites, as are their stadiums.

8) David Freese, 3B, St. Louis Cardinals

Team: Jeff Paur, RTSports | Roster

I liked Freese a lot more before the Cardinals signed Felipe Lopez. Freese might lose some at-bats to Lopez, but I still like his power potential at a thin position.

9) Rick Ankiel, OF, Kansas City Royals

Team: Collin Hager, FantasyPros911.com | Roster

Complete final-round flier on a guy that could hit 30 home runs in the right situation with the right playing time. Good risk in the 28th round.

10) Alberto Callaspo, 2B, Kansas City Royals

Team: Doug Anderson, RotoExperts | Roster

I needed a little middle infield insurance, and he had the best bat. Now if he can hold off Chris Getz, I'll have a solid BA to slot in when needed.

11) Jose Guillen, OF, Kansas City Royals

Team: Ryan Lester, Lester's Legends | Roster

He averaged nearly 22 HR and 98 RBIs in 2007 and 2008 making him worth a gamble at the end of the draft.

12) Jeff Francoeur, OF, New York Mets

Team: Joe Hamrahi, Baseball Prospectus | Roster

The last pick in the draft. Call me crazy, but I think Francoeur may actually like playing in NY. Don't see tremendous upside, but what do you really expect out of the 336th pick in the draft??!!
