2012 Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft

I will be a participant of a slow fantasy baseball mock draft which begins today Tuesday. It was supposed to start on Monday, but it was pushed back while we scrambled to fill the last few slots. The draft will be coordinated by Jeffrey from BleacherGM who provided an introduction on their website.

Here are some of the details:
"Today marks the start of our very first BleacherGM Fantasy Baseball Slow Mock Draft. We've assembled a great group of fantasy baseball enthusiasts, each with varying levels of experience. Over the next couple weeks we'll each draft a full roster for the 2012 season. I know it is very early, but it should be interesting to see how the draft positions of players change from last year and start to get a feel for which positions will be the most shallow, who will be this year's 'sleepers' and just how far Ryan Braun falls due to the very real possibility that he'll miss a significant amount of time to start the season.

Anyway, here are the rules. We will draft 16 positions; C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, UT, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P and use the basic 5x5 Roto scoring statistics; R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, W, S, K, ERA, WHIP.

Throughout the draft we'll have each team give thoughts on their picks. At the end of the draft we'll use some preliminary projections to crown a champion of BleacherGM's inaugural Mock Draft."

You can find a short bio for each participant on his website, so go check them out!

The draft will be performed on Couch Managers, so you should be able to follow it. I will gladly accept any criticisms you may have as it will almost certainly help out in my upcoming drafts.
