My approach in this one was half-hearted. Drafting from the middle, I wanted to make sure I got at least one of the top six catchers. I didn't want to be taking a middle infielder late. And I wasn't sure which way I'd go in terms of punting but thought I'd play it as it went along. 

Alas, the best hitter available in the first round was Joe Carter, who hit better than .300. That put a dent in the idea of punting BA. 

There was still a good starter left when I picked in the second, which undermined the idea of punting wins and strikeouts.

Around the time I picked in the third it was clear Erickson was punting BA and it appeared that Pianowski was dumping Wins and Strikeouts. At that point I tried to chart a course of finishing 10th in Wins and Strikeouts and maximizing as best I could elsewhere. 

There were  two players I targeted, Ernie Whitt and Ron Oester, who both went a couple players ahead of me. The last catcher and the last good MI might have made a difference. On the other hand, what would I have missed out on if I'd taken them the round before?

It's a tough game and play is getting smarter.
