I want the extra ten or so stolen bases, Alex. It's a long way back to those 2nd/3rd and 4th/5th Round picks. Yelich would definitely be my pick if in the two hole.

Yelich, Tim.

The LABR Mixed Draft is tomorrow evening, for those interested, and I've managed to draw the #1 slot. I'm looking forward to a fun season with Mr. Acuna on my team!

I see the LABR auctions are at the end of the month.  Have the CBS ones been scheduled yet?

Caveat - this is 12-team mixed league ... which means there's ridiculous hitting depth all over the place.

Phil and yours truly spent some bonding time Wednesday with a group of friends looking at the 12-team Mixed landscape. I've now done a handful of Mocks in this format and here's some early observations. Pitching and speed dry up quick, but there are still some options for the second half of the draft. I rather like Akiyama as a 23rd Round pick. Eric Hosmer and Justin Upton are getting very little love and I'll own both all over the place if their draft slots remain the same. The standard SP vs RP split has been 6/3. I'll probably go 7/2, maybe even 8/1 this year. With SP moving quick and the high turnover in closers, it simply makes more sense to look at building in spec SP (Pearson, Gore etc) in your nine pitching slots and utilize the bench slots for relievers. I'm hoping to own Joely Rodriguez, Michael Lorenzen types as buys in the reserve rounds and build my bullpen in that fashion. The link is below and all thoughts and critiques are welcome.
