Fantasy Baseball Analysis Draft: Round 28
He has a little pop - 15 HRs last year and double-digit HRs in three of the past four years. He gives me depth at catcher.
Maybe some saves I can sell during the season, if he distinguishes himself from this committee. Farnsworth gets a bad rap, but his skills have actually improved over the last few years. His K/9 is attractive here.
Tim Heaney had just drafted Kyle Farnsworth, so I thought I'd draft the Rays' best reliever. Farnsworth will likely get the first shot at saves, but I'm a big believer that McGee's talent will win over before too long.
Last pick; time to risk or to go with a sure thing; I went with a known entity.
Freese was putting together a nice season before an injury shut him down for the year. Hopefully he can return to his pre-injury form and provide some insurance as a corner infielder behind Ryan Zimmerman and Daric Barton.
Didn't draft a starter until the 10th round. Ended up with 9 of them, including my last, Harang, who still has strikeout prowess and can temper down those HRs in his new Petco home.
SEA GM says there is a rotation spot for him, so he's a good gamble at this point in draft. If he doesn't make rotation out of spring training, it should not be long. Has the stuff to be solid immediately.
My catcher spot isn't too exciting, so I gave Torrealba a shot. He should get most of the starts in Texas, a hitter's park that could produce his best season to date.
If uber-talented Neftali Feliz makes a strong case for Texas' rotation, Mr. Almost Nearly Irrelevant may close. This stage is made for long shots. In a month and a half, would be nice to find out I've drafted another closer. Ogando has the goods.
I'd love to make my last pick a statement pick, but there wasn't really anyone out there who fit the bill. Believe it or not, I actually wanted to take Michael Pineda but Harold got him three picks earlier. I'll settle for a guaranteed double-digit win guy who I can activate on weeks he gets two starts.
Don't like the fact his OPS has declined three straight years, but his potential for 20 home runs at this point in the draft is just fine for a Mr. Irrelevant.
