Some will argue that he had a career year last year and they would probably be right. Still, he shows balanced production that should garner me close to 20 home runs and better than 20 steals.
Corner infielders are getting scarce and with the 20-pick gap until my next selection, I don't want to be scraping the bottom of the barrel. LaRoche and Lance Berkman were all still available so I went with the younger and healthier pick.
Took Travis Snider with last pick because I thought highly undervalued Angel Pagan would come back and wanted Snider more. Miscalculation - maybe. Still like Jackson here - BA will dip a bit, but SB could increase with more Motown aggressiveness.
Alright, time to take a few chances. Berkman might be a bit of a stretch at this point with some of the other players available, but I like his chances to rebound this season. He will hit around two great hitters and play in a ballpark he has a good history.
Steadily improving with growing GB rate and command in 2nd half. Could be on the verge of a breakout season.
The ugliness of his 5.18 ERA last season masks the wonderfulness of his 3.72 xFIP. Still, has to face strong AL East batters regularly. Hmm, some regrets on this pick.
Really love this pick. Garcia gets lost in the shuffle because he was shut down early last year due to fatigue. He's only projected to be the 3rd or 4th starter in the St. Louis rotation, but that's more due to workload than talent. I'm really surprised I was able to nab Jaime this late.
Don't know if he will close or not (I think he will), but the arm is live and over his last 33 appearances he had a 13.50 K/9 and 4.0 K/BB.
Taken as insurance given catchers' propensity to get injured.
I'll be the huckleberry. I have no idea what to expect from him this year, but I'll certainly be happy if he approaches anything like the power/speed combo he used to be. At this point in the draft I thought it made sense to take a shot on a rebound. If not, he's in my utility slot and I can pick up a decent player to get a little production from.
You ever see The Fan? Well, I'm Robert DeNiro, and Zimmermann is Wesley Snipes. Healthy? Maybe not, but Zimm is on his way to reclaiming his. He already started doing so with his velocity, control and grounder growth in his 2010 stint.
Olivo has averaged 16.2 HRs and 56.4 RBI over the past five seasons. He gives me some pop and fills my second catcher spot.
