Vasquez is an interesting one. I've been steering clear since he became one of Rudy's Riskys. He went at 141 in this mock. Does that seem about right?

Yeah, I'd take a chance on Vazquez at the right round and 140 seems about right.

Good overall team with solid value picks from the beginning until the end... Holliday almost at 30, Upton almost at 50, Quentin in the 70s, Victorino almost at 90... I'm somewhat skeptical about the level of competition and why are you mocking ten team leagues? You're only playing in 12 team ones right?

Yeah - I'm only playing in 12-teamers but they only have 10-team mocks (or seem to) at ESPN. And there are some knuckleheads there. One guy in this draft took Jeter at #7 because "shortstop is thin after Reyes." It's depressing to see that as soon as you start.

And at the time that I can do them (which is about 2am EST), not everyone lasts til the end, ESPN is not as hot on Victorino as we are etc etc. So they're not an accurate reflection of how the RCL draft will turn out.

And because of all that, I try to treat them as exercises in taking the right guy at the right time, without worrying so much about who they are.

Well, that's my story.

I'd probably bail if I saw Jeter go 7th.
