Have my first draft in 30 minutes. I was able to keep McCutchen, Kershaw, Votto, V-Mart, Carter, Hughes, among others, so I've got a good start.

in my yahoo drafts bryant has been going circa.... sheeeeit, rounds 8-12? typically he's around 10-12 (after most of the established "top" players are gone and people have their offensive/middle-infielder core and a few starters and maybe a reliever or two) cuz nobody yet has been willing to say FUCK IT THIS GUY'S GONNA BE A TOP-3 ROUND PICK VALUE!!!!! and mortgage one of the cornerstones of their season to go the babe bryant route, however people aren't letting him drift to being a round 15+ "value pick"

so basically, if you're willing to take bryant over someone like david ortiz or bryce harper or albert pujols, you'll for sure have him circa round 6-7 barring some cubs fan deciding he's a lock for ~.300/30/100 and taking him in the first 5 rounds.

Chicago players are always over valued when every drafting is from here. Derrick Rose has never went lower than the 3rd round in my fantasy basketball drafts.

yeah good call dude, if you're in a league where you know everyone and thus you know there's some cubbie homers there, then you're going to have to strike early if you wanna be the team with babe bryant. otherwise, i technically had my drafts a week or two ago and since the babe is racking up HR after HR (often in the same game) you're prolly gonna have to go a little earlier than i said.

bottom line = excepting cubbie homers, if you wanna 100% for sure be the team with babe bryant and he's still there by like round 4 or 5 at the latest, jump on him them cuz the hype is only going to reach a fever pitch b4 the regular season starts. otherwise, if you can't get him circa 8-10 cuz somebody jumped out before you, i'd still recommend drafting value and then once the season breaks try to give the guy who has him an offer they can't refuse before he comes up, cuz if the babe arrives and hits a HR in his first game or something it's all over.... that is unless he starts off like 3/32 or something and you can buy low at that point.

then again, the only way babe bryant goes 3/32 is if he retires from baseball and then starts a lucrative career as a cricket bowler.

I'd let someone else take the Bryant bullet. You can pick him up in April when he has a roster crunch or in June/July when he starts hitting a little.
