Wright - I could use more homers.
Hamilton - Slow start, but rounding into form.
Kinsler - Started off red hot, slumped for awhile, and now seems to be heating back up.

David Wright x3 - Producing well but don't let Citi Field sap all of your power now.
Jose Reyes - Bust. Anytime you draft Reyes and do not lead the league in steals, that's basically what he is.
Mark Teixeira - Turning it on now with ARod back and the weather heating up.

Op needs to add other choices. I took Utley as the 10th pick in a roto snake draft and took Sizmore 11.

I took Utley first last year and traded him after the allstar break for Webb which didn't work out for anyone. But I love me some Utley and think he out performs last years numbers, Sizemore feels like a consolation prize at this point.

Also, does anyone every feel like one of their first two picks every year is a bust?

I die a little bit inside every time I look at Sizemore's statline.. :,-(
He needs to start turning it around, can't have my 1st rounder hitting below .225.

You took Halladay in the first round? In a re-draft? Wow.

Took Utley in the first as well, never really understood why he fell so far in MDP. The production was there, if it was injury risk, why weren't Hamilton (dinged up) and Kinsler similarly discounted?

Workin out so far! 31 11 31 3 .297

The second round pick of Rollins however wasnt as great, though hes been picking it up of late.

im with ya on this one... took Utley with the 8th overall, i thought he had solid value bc of the injury risk and of course position scarcity. luckily for me i nabbed Lincecum in the 2nd, i got very lucky there as its a 14 team league... Crawford in the 3rd, VMart in the 4th! ;-D sitting pretty in 2nd, 1 game back of first!
