Reds are picking at 19.

I've passed on to editing -- my mistake when breaking out headers for each of the write-ups. Thanks for the catch!

With Hoffman busto for the year, this would have been a perfect opportunity to redo the top 10. Fedde certainly has been passed, where he wouldn't have before.

I think there are arguments for Hoffman still going in the top 10, and we were more interested in trying to get thoughts on additional names as opposed to rehashing the same guys at the top.

You are correct, the first set was completed before Hoffman's TJ surgery was announced, and this week's was conducted after the Fedde announcement. I think there is a good chance Fedde still gets popped in the 21-41 range.

Boo, now I'll always wonder who BP thinks the Cubs will take.

As noted in the intro, the exercise is really about who the author would take.

"The rules of this exercise are simple: pick the player you would pick if you were calling the shots for your assigned team. These selections were not made with organizational preference in mind, or with a nod toward any real-world hints about which targets these organizations have begun to zero in on."

I was just throwing a fun elbow. I understand the rules. They are fair. Good stuff nevertheless.
