yeah i picked Almeida but you could easily make a credible claim for like 5 or 6 guys in the first round.

usually when i look for Steal of the Draft, i start at pick72 and scroll upwards, stopping when I see a halfway decent contributor.  Lahm at 53 fits the bill (most R3 guys rarely amount to anything) but if I had kept going, HAV RHP Ian O'Donnell at 30 (a perennial team favorite) should probably have gone in the top 12.

Sydney wasted my 2048 picks!  BTW, my third rounder C James Etheridge is currently my backup catcher.

Second rounder in 2037, P Earl Barnes, is still in my rotation.  Nice.

Blair Ness was hands down the worst pick I ever made.  Many lessons were learned from this catastrophic idiocy.

Sadly, that was during my "don't have time to evaluate draftees, so just trade away all picks and hope to contend" phase.

....and that didn't work out by the way, just in case you were wondering.
