Fake Teams Dynasty League Draft Results: Round 7

Domonic: A little more hitting and a lot less of that in 2012, please!

The Fake Teams Dynasty League draft is still going on and today I bring you the results of round 7, a round where league owners get the player for 5 years at the cheap salary of $6. So, as you can imagine, there were plenty of recently called up prospects and young hitters selected in this round, except for a few owners who filled needs rather than taking young hitters.

Round 7 - $6 - 5 Years

Oakland Athletics - B.J. Upton - OF - Tampa Bay Rays
Colorado Rockies - Drew Stubbs - OF - Cincinnati Reds
Arizona Diamondbacks - Mike Moustakas 3B - Kansas City
Brooklyn Nets - Julio Teheran - SP - Atlanta Braves
Anaheim Angels - Devin Mesoraco - C - Cincinnati Reds
Tampa Bay Rays - Aramis Ramirez - 3b - Chicago Cubs
Carl Winslows - Brandon Belt - 1B/OF - San Francisco Giants
Atlanta Braves - Paul Goldschmidt - 1B - Arizona Diamondbacks
Miami Marlins - Danny Espinosa - 2B - Washington Nationals
Fake Teams - Domonic Brown - OF - Philadelphia Phillies
Boston Red Sox - Logan Morrison - OF - Miami Marlins
New York Mets - Wilson Ramos - C - Washington Nationals
Texas Rangers - Lance Berkman - OF - St. Louis Cardinals
Bronx Bombers - Michael Morse - 1B - Washington Nationals
Los Angeles Dodgers - Lonnie Chisenhall - 3B - Cleveland Indians
Toronto Blue Jays - Ubaldo Jimenez - SP - Cleveland Indians

My Round 7 analysis after the jump:

In this round, I had targeted Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, but the Braves grabbed him two spots before my pick came up. I originally wanted Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco, who I own in the UBA NL-only keeper league, but he was taken early in Round 7, damn you mathisrocks!!!

So, I ended up selecting former Top 5 prospect Domonic Brown of the Phiadelphia Phillies. Brown should be given regular at bats in 2012, especially with Raul Ibanez now a free agent. But, early offseason comments from Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. have me more than a bit concerned with this choice. Amaro Jr. stated that Brown probably needs more time in AAA in 2012. I am hoping that is just some fire to get Brown focused in his offseason preparation for the 2012 season.

I can't say I dislike any of the picks made in round 7, as both Upton and Stubbs are still young enough to continue performing at a high level, with Stubbs having some issues making contact. Both are capable of 15-20 home runs and stealing 35-40 bases in any given season.

I have to admit if Juilo Teheran was available when my pick came up, I would have had some difficulty with my choice. Another admission-I totally whiffed on Logan Morrison. For some reason, I thought he had been taken already. It was just announced yesterday that Morrison will have offseason knee surgery, but he should be ready for spring training.
