Picking from the 9th spot today (1 Viewer)

the moops

Footballguy
12 team, standard 5x5, smallish starting lineups

Will be a bunch of Twin and Brewer homers.

Did a couple mock drafts, looks like at 9, someone will fall that I like (Pujols, Votto, or even McCutchen). Struggling with 2.4 though. Unless somehow Stanton, Longo, or Beltre is there, I don't really like anyone else too much.

Probably wont pick a pitcher until 5/6 unless someone falls. So looking at who in the 3rd and 4th?

Anyone? :shrug:

The problem with MDC data is that a good portion of their mock drafts are done with less than half of the league controlled by users. That means over 50% of the picks are being made by "AI", which is basically just an automated reference to their default rankings list.

ETA: I would think it is reasonable to expect one of Longo/Beltre to be available at that point. Probably even someone like Tulo, Reyes, or Bautista will be there as well. Those three are coming off seasons that weren't awesome for various reasons, but all have spent time as top 5 fantasy performers in the not-so-distant past.

There seems to be a consensus for the top 10, but then it gets muddy. I pick at the turn in a 12 team and feel like whoever I draft will be a pretty big step below the top 10. (I don't have J Upton nearly as high as MDC)

Like the moops, I'm waiting until 5/6 to go pitching. The mocks I've done have a lot of quality SP's available around pick 60. Who would you guys target at 12/13 assuming the top 10 (including Votto) are gone? I think there is some decent OF available in 3/4, so I'm leaning toward Beltre and someone else.
