So I did a real draft yesterday for a keeper league but early last week I did a this mock draft. I’d post the keeper one but the keepers throw off who gets drafted where. Here’s who I took and why. Just a little tool you can use to see where someone may go, who drops, and who people reach for. I love this team and wish it was a real draft.
I changed all the team names to what their draft order was so you can see each draft slot and what’s around later in the draft.

(1) 1st overall - Mike Trout CF
(2) 2nd overall - Miguel Cabrera 3B
(3) 3rd overall - Carlos Gonzalez LF
(4) 4th overall - Andrew McCutchen CF
(5) 5th overall - Paul Goldschmidt 1B
(6) 6th overall - Clayton Kershaw SP
(7) 7th overall (sportspage) - Jacoby Ellsbury CF
(8) 8th overall - Edwin Encarnacion 1B
(9) 9th overall - Chris Davis 1B
(10) 10th overall - Robinson Cano 2B
1st round I went with Ellsbury. He’s going to have a great year in New York. He will almost single handedly win you steals and I think his swing in his new home stadium will add a few more home runs. On the converse, I think Cano will drop off this year. He’s still going to be a top-3 second baseman. But power numbers will drop off. If he’s still around middle of second round or later, I think it’s an all right pick but I’d rather wait for Kipnis or Pedroia. In fact, there are great 2b bargains low this year.
On another note, I’d be really wary of building my team around Chris Davis or Edwin Encarnacion.
