2009 Mock Fantasy Baseball Drafts: The Runs

I just completed my first mock draft of the 2009 fantasy baseball season.  A few things stood out.

  1. Once one of the Big Three aces comes off the board, the other two will quickly follow.  Who are the Big 3?  Tim Lincecum, Johan Santana and C.C. Sabathia.
  2. As soon as one of the top catchers is selected, the remaining four will soon follow.
  3. There isn't a ton of differentiation amongst the outfielders once the first few rounds are over.

FWIW, I had to check out of the draft after I selected 3B Adrian Beltre in the 14th round.  Without queuing players according to preference, I ended up with a closerless squad and Pedro Sandoval way too early.
