NFBC Draft Results

I drafted a team in an online NFBC mixed league recently.  I had the first overall pick; here's my team by round:

  1. Albert Pujols
  2. Mark Reynolds
  3. Grady Sizemore
  4. Matt Wieters
  5. Carlos Lee
  6. Gordon Beckham
  7. Shin-Soo Choo
  8. Hunter Pence
  9. Jake Peavy
  10. Geovany Soto
  11. James Shields
  12. Ryan Dempster
  13. Chad Qualls
  14. Erick Aybar
  15. Garrett Jones
  16. Matt Capps
  17. Kelly Johnson
  18. Ben Sheets
  19. Matt Lindstrom
  20. Aaron Harang
  21. Travis Snider
  22. Colby Lewis
  23. Cameron Maybin
  24. Clint Barmes
  25. Kevin Gregg
  26. Jason Hammel
  27. Seth Smith
  28. Travis Hafner
  29. Matt Guerrier
  30. Brian Bruney

Getting the opportunity to draft Pujols came with the typical pain of having to wait 23 turns between picks.  With plenty of participants taking the full minute and thirty seconds, and a seven-man bench (?), this thing dragged on for four hours.  Note that this league doesn't allow trades, so building up a surplus in one area isn't too helpful.

Despite drafting in a different spot, I managed to draft a dozen of the same players I chose in the RotoAuthority league: Reynolds, Carlos Lee, Beckham, Pence, Soto, Dempster, Qualls, Garrett Jones, Capps, Lindstrom, Hammel, and Lewis.  I again crafted a shaky starting rotation, and with this league I'll have to employ my FAAB budget to pick up the right starters.  This year I aimed to leave drafts happy with my offense, and I accomplished that.  I've grabbed Bruney in a few leagues, in the event Capps doesn't work out.
