IowaCubs' Mock Draft Results 11/12/08

Here are the results of the mock draft that I participated in tonight over at Mock Draft Central. Overall, I'm pleased for a first rough draft (draft). The only two I'm kicking myself over are the J.D. Drew and Justin Upton picks. I should have picked a mid level closer there. I also could have waited to pick Shoppach and Chris Davis, but I had them in my sights, so I took the risk. Doing it over again, I'd probably pick them again. Furcal was a mistake, because I couldn't figure out the drafting interface, but I'm okay with it. I'd have prefered Kemp there.

My first two picks were Braun as the 7th overall and Berkman as the 24th. I was shocked to see Berkman there. I went with CC as the 39th, because I was worried I wouldn't have a staff anchor by the time the 4th or 5th round came around.

I took Pedroia pretty early (54th), but I didn't want to stomach farting around with Uggla or Young again, so I took him in the 4th... My top value picks were probably Elijah Dukes in the 17th round and Ubaldo in the 20th...I like my starting pitching of CC, Cliff Lee, Nolasco, JarJar and Ubaldo. Closers I took Fuentes and Perez, so I'm pretty light closer-wise.

Here are the final results for everyone if you care to look through it: http://www.mockdraftcentral.com/draft.j ... &view=all. I realized that halfway through, almost 1/2 the teams were autopicking, which sucks. Oh well, whatevs.

I few thoughts.

1. You love Dallas McPherson.
2. Your OF is pretty questionable.
3. Your pitching is very solid.
4. Your love for McPherson is insatiable.
5. If I remember correctly from your RCL, you always seem to draft heavy on pitching and light on hitting. I think you've done that again.
6. CC was great value.
7. I'd like to see you draft nothing but hitters for the first ten rounds and see what your team would look like.
8. Every list needs an eight.
9. Going light on closers is fine. You went a bit too light.
10. There's no ten.

EDIT: Thanks for posting it. It's fun to see drafted teams, even if they are mocks.

My mock was over 5 minutes before it started Iowa. The clock at the top kept stopping after 10 seconds and can't reload the page. At least that clock was right twice a day!

This taught me one thing though, always prepare before an on-line draft or you'll end up with this shit.......

Rios-rd 2
Granderson-3
CGuile-4
Konerko-6
Harang-7, now cough
Rich Hill-11
and my personal fave....
Salomon Torres in the 12th

"Uh, Doc. Why are both your hands on my shoulders?"
