I would have taken Fritz but NYY was off the board early. That's probably why he usually lasts until the second.

Good point, devo.

It makes one wonder just how many would be drafted from the Yankees if there were no limit.  With the limit, they've had 6 taken every draft I've tracked.

Page one updated.  Yes, there were several players I had my eye on in the first round whose teams were already off the board.

Orioles select George Foster from the Reds

I am taking a training class all day today.  Not sure if or when I can get on again so I will make a public proxy here.  I will take Tim Hudson Oakland P.  If he is taken I will take Steve McCatty Oakland P instead.

Three legs in a row Cardinal Rolen has been drafted by alleyviper.
I may have to come up with an acronym for Rolen.  Perhaps AFTBOAT.  Alleyviper's favorite third baseman of all time.

Alley, I'm curious I really didn't look at his stats, how has he done for you the past few legs??  I have used him a couple times & he has stank on toast for me

Last season in Oakland, pitchers park, he hit .240/.310/.450.  35HR, 105 RBI.  Alleyviper used him at shortstop, where he played well defensively.

hmm, ok, so similar numbers, I always am amazed that his avg is right around there everytime I have used him, he does put up good HR numbers, but if you use the .330 season or whatever you would expect better avg. numbers.

And I'll pull Oakland off the board by taking Mark McGwire

I guess this counts as mllama's proxy:

Tim Hudson Oakland

"Well" is stretching it for how he plays defense IMO. His D at SS ranges from average to below average depending on how the sim is feeling in any given season. Right now the plan is not for him to be SS this season, though things could always change.

As for his performance, along with last season already mentioned, he has given me:

.232/.305/.384
.262/.344/.419

Both of the good performances were in strong pitcher's parks (Oakland, New Busch) and the stinker was in Philly so who knows.

I remember some comments last season in the forum about his good defense...must have been one of the "average" seasons, which for a 3B sliding over, is pretty good.
