Results From The First Rotoprofessor Mock Draft

Sorry everyone, as I just realized that I hadn’t posted the results from the first Rotoprofessor Mock Draft held last week.  If anyone is curious, you can check it out at:

Let’s hear who everyone thinks did the best job drafting!

2011 Projection: John Jaso

The Tampa Bay Rays catching situation was a questionable one when the season started.  Once they acquired Kelly Shoppach, fantasy owners in two-catcher formats were scurrying for any information they could get on who was going to get the bulk of the playing time.  Was it going to be Shoppach?  Was it going to be the incumbent, Dioner Navarro?

By year’s end the answer was neither, as John Jaso emerged as the player who saw the most at bats of their trio.  Injuries played a factor, but with his inclusion on the playoff roster (and the omission of Dioner Navarro, who ultimately opted not to join the team for the playoff series), it’s obvious that Jaso has entrenched himself in the mix moving forward.

Navarro has probably sealed his own fate, and you would expect that he won’t be back with the Rays in 2011.  That would put Jaso in a position to see significant playing time once again, but should owners in two-catcher formats care?

Before we can answer that, we need to look at how he produced in 2010: Read more

Looking At The Results Of My Second Mock Draft

Rotoprofessor Mock Draft #2

Last night, we held our second mock draft over at Mock Draft Central.  I want to again thank everyone who took the time to participate, as there was a lot of great discussion throughout the draft.  Everyone was incredibly knowledgeable, as I found out time and time again as round-after-round, my pick was taken before I selected.  We all know that frustration, don’t we?

Anyways, let’s take a look at the results, followed by some of my thoughts from the selections (sorry guys, don’t take it personally!): Read more
