Worst Pick You've Seen

Postby goalyboy13 » Thu Mar 06, 2008 5:41 pm

What is the worst pick anyone has seen so far this season? I'm sure many of you have done mock drafts or numerous drafts.

I had a guy take Brandon Webb 19th and follow it up with Russel Martin 22nd. The rest of his draft went better, so obviously he wasn't stupid. I just can't believe he took the second rated catchers, 15 picks before the #1 rate catcher should have gone.

Dustin Pedroia went in the first pick of the 5th round in my 12 team league...

The league includes hits but still....

The guy picked Pedroia over other 2B's like Figgins (Who I got), Kinsler, Uggla, Weeks, etc

He of course is a huge Red Sox fan and went on to tell us how underrated he is, etc

Man that is not a competitive move at all.

I forgot to mention, in the same league (it's a very competitive league me and my friends have been doing for years, $250 entry fee) The guy with the 12th pick took Bj Upton at #13 over Crawford,Ortiz,Soriano, and other guys that were available.

Also, Braun went in the 1st round (10th pick)
