Today we continued our Fantasy Baseball draft, completing rounds 4-6. Here are our results(Lupo led off Round 4)

Kenny Alex Matt Mike Bobby Brian Adam Lupo
Round 4 Pedoria, 2B Kinsler, 2B Greinke, SP Zimmerman, 3B Verlander, SP Reyes, SS Suzuki, OF Jeter, SS
Round 5 J. Santana, SP Carpenter, SP Cano, 2B Wainwright, SP A. Gonzalez, 1B Lee, SP Lester, SP Youkilis, 1B
Round 6 J. Bay, OF A. Ramirez, 3B M. Reynolds, DH B. Phillips, 2B Sandoval, 3B Martinez, C McCann, C Roberts, 2B

Teams are really starting to take form. There were a few surprise selections this round…

Reach Picks:

Ryan Zimmerman and Victor Martinez

Ryan Zimmerman is a great player. No doubt about it. However, Mike could have waited a round or two to get similar value. In comparison, Pablo Sandoval was selected mid-way through the Sixth Round. These two players should provide owners with similar production. Adding a premiere arm, like Zack Greinke, would have made more sense for Team Ulatoski.

Brian already selected Joe Mauer in Round 1, so I question his selection of Victor Martinez in Round 6. I assume that Brian will be looking for a trade partner after the draft. Martinez has First Base Eligibility, but there were better options at the position.

Best Value:

Mark Reynolds

Typically, an owner won’t find a 44 HR, 102 RBI bat at Pick 46. I don’t want to self-promote myself, but the value of Reynolds was too good to pass up here. I had my 1st base(Miguel Cabrera) and 3rd base(Alex Rodriguez) slots filled, so Reynolds will fit nicely into my Utility spot. At worst, I’ll expect 35 HRs and 100 RBIs from the Diamondbacks slugger.
