NL LABR Results

New, 4 comments

This weekend the League of Alternative Baseball Reality drafts were held.  For those unfamilar with that somewhat awkward sounding name, we'll just call it LABR.   The full results won't be available until USA Today's Leviathan issue is published in a couple weeks.

However, individual team rosters will dribble out in the mean time.  The first I have seen is the one drafted by Derek McCarty of The Hardball Times.  Here it is.

Some things that surprised me, and I am always surprised by auction draft results: 

  • The focus on ratio-wary pitchers in the reserve rounds.
  • Javier Vazquez for $25
  • Rich Harden for $19
  • The presence of Ben Sheets at all
  • $25 on James Loney in a non-inflationary environment
  • $23 on Kelly Johnson
