Some analysis of my last 2 picks that has been lacking:

JJ Putz - I had no intention of starting a closer run, just thought he was the best available on my board. He came at a pretty good discount based on 2011 numbers, and to be honest, needed to take him as my pick as he hasn't had 2 healthy seasons in a row for a while. At this point in the draft, thought the upside of a 2011 repeat was worth the risk of an injury.

Justin Morneau - The concussions will likely be an issue at some point during the season, but he only needs a solid avg with 20-80 to be a decent pick. If he avoids the concussion symptoms and is anything close to his former self, a great pick here. In a 12 team format, much more willing to gamble on a recovery as the replacements for another injury plagued year are better.

Happy B-Day, buddy.
Thanks - At this point in my life (45 :shock: ) birthdays have really become about how much my kids enjoy celebrating the occasion. Everyone else can forgo further Happy B-days - I will just pretend you all have sent them my way as I down a few Jack and Cokes tonight. See you guys later!
