Overvalued picks

Joey Votto (Round 2): Despite missing 31 games last season Votto hit .322 with 25 homers and 84 rbi. Votto has the potential for a .320-30-100 season but so does Justin Morneau or Kevin Youkilis who each went in Round 4. Kendry Morales went in went in Round 5 and Billy Butler in round 8 shows one the depth at this position.

“Of players who were eligible at first base last season, there were 12 players with at least 30 home runs.  Of those players, there were six who posted a batting average of at least .292.”

Aramis Ramirez (Round 4): Ramirez played in 82 games last season which was his lowest since 2003 (63 games). His homeruns have decreased each year since 2006. He suffered a right shoulder injury which caused him to miss two months last season. A-Ram seems like a nice candidate to have a rebound season but I would pass. Chone Figgins went in Round 6 and Michael Young went in round 8.

Stephen Drew (Round 7)- Drew disappointed last season after a strong 2008. He hit just .261 with 12 homers and 65 RBI. Drew hit .228 away from home and .240 with 1 homer in September.

Cliff Lee and Josh Beckett went after him which are better selections. Asdrubal Cabrera hit .308 with 68 RBI, 81 runs and 17 steals for the Indians last season and went in the 8th round.

Honorable mention: Nate McLouth (Round 6)
