Yesterday, Adam analyzed the first five rounds of our fantasy baseball draft. Today I’ll be looking at Rounds 6-10. There were a few surprise picks and some great value picks that slipped through the cracks.

'Adam Drafted Me, Ok'

R MIKE JEFF
6 V. MARTINEZ B. POSEY
7 KINSLER BUCHHOLZ
8 WERTH KONERKO
9 OSWALT M. YOUNG
10 B. WILSON D. YOUNG
  1. Jeff Steinberg, NYSOS Staff Writer
    What I like: Jeff got good value with both Youngs (Michael and Delmon)
    What I don’t like: Jeff definitely overreached, selecting Clay Buchholz in Round 7. Even though Buchholz finished second in ERA in the American League last year, his WHIP was very high and strikeout total was low. I ranked him in my Top 30, but Jeff could have waited to grab Clay Buchholz.
  2. Mike Ulatoski, NYSOS Staff Writer (Last year: First place)
    What I like: Mike got great value across the board here, again. Getting Werth in the eighth round was an absolute steal. He also got one of my favorite players in the league, Brian Wilson in the tenth round.
    What I don’t like: No complaints here at all. Mike has gotten good value throughout the entire draft.
  3. Adam Poedubicky, NYSOS Staff Writer (Last year, Fourth place)
    What I like: Adam set himself up nicely here, selecting The Sandman to anchor his relief staff. Adam can expect sub 1.00 WHIP from  Mo. I liked the Heyward pick too in the sixth round. He’ll help Adam out in all five categories.
    What I don’t like: I felt like Adam took Billy Butler a little early in the eighth round. He’s going to hit above .300, but his power potential isn’t as high the players drafted near him.
  4. Matt Vereb: NYSOS Editor (Last year: Third place)
    What I like: Brandon Phillips at Pick 76 was a steal in my opinion. Phillips is a good bet for 20/20 production and he won’t kill me either in batting average. There’s a lot of skepticism around Jose Bautista, but I’m buying him for 2011. He won’t replicate his 2010 production, but I’d take 40 home runs in the sixth round.
    What I don’t like: Hamels may have been a little early in the eighth round, but I didn’t like how the starting pitching thinned out after Hamels.
  5. Steve Fiorenza, Avid NYSOS Reader
    What I like: Steve really bolstered his pitching staff with Dan Haren and Chris Carpenter. I like both arms and they should give Steve at least 30 wins and an average ERA around 2.90-3.00.
    What I don’t like: Carlos Santana and Elvis Andrus are both young, exciting players. Were they drafted a little early? Maybe. I think he reached a little for Santana, but he could pay off in a shallow catching pool.
  6. Kenny Mauss, NYSOS Staff Writer (Last Year, Sixth place)
    What I like: Kenny started this part of the draft off with two Braves in McCann and Hudson, who I like a lot. Kenny got good value with Ethier in the eighth round as well.
    What I don’t like: Brett Anderson dealt with arm issues in the middle of the season last year. The talent is there, but there were safer options for Kenny at this point of the draft.
  7. Dan Shaw, NYSOS Staff Writer
    What I like: I like all five of Dan’s picks. People are skeptical about Beltre, but I’m not buying it. His home field is now of the most hitter friendly places in baseball and his lineup protection is great. I like Zack Greinke as a ‘draft and store’. He won’t pitch during April, but he’ll be great for the rest of the season. Going from the AL to the NL Central is like ordering off the Wendy’s menu after a weeklong Spring Break trip to the Dominican Republic, almost too easy.
    What I don’t like: No complaints here.
  8. Scott Kasper, Avid NYSOS Reader
    What I like: Scott set a very solid outfield foundation with Choo and Ellsbury. Ellsbury could lead the league in stolen bases and Choo is one of the most consistent players in the game.
    What I don’t like: Morneau is definitely a high-risk, high-reward player. When Morneau is healthy, he’s one of the top first basemen in the game. However, Morneau’s concussion issues have relegated him to the middle of the draft. If he’s healthy, it’s a great pick for Scott and could win him the league. If he’s hurt, it’s a big hole in Scott’s lineup.

Check back tomorrow as Adam analyzes Rounds 11-15.
