My MLB Fantasy Squad
By: Braden Gall | 3/12/11, 4:37 PM EST
My fantasy baseball draft has finally come to an end. Well, at least one of them. I still have an online keeper league redraft on Sunday and am nearly finished with a big board month-long office league as well.
But the first semi-Athlon Sports fantasy baseball draft is, in fact, finished - after months of emails.
I had the 7th pick in the 10-team draft. We use a 6x6 format, adding HOLDS and OPS to the stats. The line-up also includes a CI, MI and fourth OF.
Here is how the draft turned out for me with my three keepers:
Round 1, Pick 7: David Wright, 3B, NYM
2.4: Mark Teixeira, 1B, NYY
3.7: A-ROD, 3B, NYY (keeper)
4.4: CC Sabathia, SP, NYY
5.7: Rickie Weeks, 2B, MIL
6.4: Alexei Ramirez, SS, CHW
7.7: Tommy Hanson, SP, ATL
8.4: Jonathan Papelbon, RP, BOS
9.7: Andre Ethier, OF, LAD (keeper)
10.4: Chris Perez, RP, CLE
11.7: Jason Bay, OF, NYM
12.4: Brett Anderson, SP, OAK
13.7: Drew Storen, RP, WAS
14.4: Alex Rios, OF, CHW (keeper)
15.7: (traded away)
16.4: Daniel Bard, RP, BOS
17.7: Carlos Beltran, OF, NYM
18.4: Austin Jackson, OF, DET
19.7: Tsuyoshi Nishioka, 2B/SS, MIN
20.4: (traded away)
21.7: Dexter Fowler, OF, COL
22.4: Ricky Romero, SP, TOR
23.7: Jake McGee, RP, TB
24.4: Jesus Montero, C, NYY
25.7: Jorge Posada, C, NYY
Brandon Webb, SP, TEX
James Loney, 1B, LAD
I do love the fact that I selected my 2012 catcher one round before I selected my 2011 backstop.
