Mock Draft 2011

Posted: February 4, 2011 in Mock Draft

As the 2011 Major League Baseball season approaches, so do fantasy baseball drafts and auctions. Backwoods Baseball is no exception, as we’ve begun our annual Mock Draft. The format is simple: each owner is responsible for 3 teams in a 12-team mixed league and each roster must include 24 total players. We’ll be drafting under the guise of a standard 5×5 scoring system. Complete results will be posted at the conclusion of the snake draft, with each owner’s thoughts and opinions on their teams mixed in throughout. Here’s  a sneak peek at our first twelve choices:

Steve 1 Hanley Ramirez SS Very shallow position and I think he’ll perform at career high levels.
Geoff 1 Albert Pujols 1B One of the greatest players of all time – in his prime.
Brent 1 Troy Tulowitzki SS Tulo and any top 12 1B is better than Miggy and the next best SS.
Adam 1 Miguel Cabrera 1B Along with Pujols, the only guy without any real concerns.  A total stud.
Adam 2 Evan Longoria 3B Just coming into his prime, he’s the best player at a surprisingly thin position.
Brent 2 Robinson Cano 2B Wanted to make sure I got number one at the position.
Geoff 2 Carlos Gonzalez OF .330-125-38-125-30 potential. Triple crown contender.
Steve 2 Carl Crawford OF 5 category production hitting infront of Youkilis and A-Gon.
Steve 3 Joey Votto 1B Breakout season just the beginning for Votto.
Geoff 3 Josh Hamilton OF If healthy for 150+ games… imagine the numbers – pure hitter.
Brent 3 Ryan Braun OF 5 Category production.
Adam 3 Adrian Gonzalez 1B His swing is perfect for Fenway, and now he’s actually got lineup protection.
