2013 Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft – 15-Team Writers Draft

Feb 12

2013 Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft – 15-Team Writers Draft

On January 9, I got a group email from Cory Schwartz of MLB.com asking if we wanted to join a 15-team 2013 Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft (mixed league, Rotisserie, 5×5). Of course, I said, “Uhh yeah!” as did the rest of the group, and the draft started within an hour.

It’s a slow email draft, that will run over the course of the next week or so, I imagine, with 23 rounds and a standard lineup (20-game eligibility, too).

There’s really no analysis, but I’ll let you know when certain picks get more discussion than others. The first pick of the second round, for instance, started a nice chain of emails.

Feel free to comment at the bottom on picks that surprised/angered/excited you!

ROUND TWO

2.01 Cory Schwartz, MLB.com: Bryce Harper, OF, WAS: This pick definitely got the biggest reaction of all the writers. Schwartz believes Harper has great upside and he knew he couldn’t get him in the next round.

Carroll agreed, “Love it. Harper’s going to be in the middle of the best lineup in the nl all year. The worry people have of him wearing down has no evidence.”

Erickson noted, “Prediction: Harper will have an NFBC ADP of 25 or earlier across the various Main Event drafts.”

Zola, though, was the most vocal critic, “I understand taking a guy you want that you won’t be able to get next time. But each draft spot has an expected return on investment and it’s a tall order to expect Harper is worthy of that pick — just to break even, let alone get a positive ROI. And if you break even on every pick, enjoy 7th place.”

Michaels said, “I think Harper is worthy of .275-25-75 anyway which does make him a good pick, anyway.”

I’ll do my best to keep you posted as this slow draft crawls along over the next week or so. Hopefully, this 2013 Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft gives you a good idea of what your draft will look like.


Remember when you agreed/disagreed with me!?! ... Feel free to leave a comment or share it with friends/enemies!

  2. Thanks for the mock draft. It will be a great help on draft day.

  3. Wouldn’t it make more sense to put the player first, and the guy who drafted him after?

  4. I am looking at the mock draft thru 259 picks.

    Undrafted are: A. J. Griffin, K Lohse (FA), W Peralta, T Bauer, M Buehrle, B Beachy, B McCarthy, H Iwakuma, T Milone, J Vargas, J Guthrie, W Miley and perhaps a dozen more SP’s who seem top-250-worthy.

    C Quentin, R Ludwick, J Peralta are untaken position players. Also, a bit surprised no one took a flier on J Profar despite his not having a position.

    Not to say I don’t appreciate this. Very helpful. And excellent picks overall. Except…J Pierre at
    212. That was brutal. O Infante at 191 was also a misstep, IMO.

    • really? juan pierre at 212 was a misstep?…you wouldnt draft a guy that could potentially hit .280-290 with 80-90 runs and 35-40 SB in the 14th round?…

      • I said J Pierre was a brutally awful pick, whereas I felt O Infante was a misstep, i e., not as bad.

        Pierre lost starter status in ’12 and should’ve lost it at least a year sooner. He’s 35 and understandably losing speed. He’s not a high BA hitter anymore and even when he was, he was a power and OPS killer. He’s plugged in as starting LF, but the Fish got him as much for vet guidance as anything else. He definitely should give way to younger players as often as possible.

    I realize it’s super deep in the draft, but do you think Lavarnway plays enough this year to warrant where you grabbed him?

    • Yep, I reached a bit there. Could’ve/should’ve waited a couple more rounds. I do like him developing at some point this season, despite what he’s shown in Boston so far.

      • Crazeeeee! R Lavarnway is No. 4 (!!!!) behind J Salty, D Ross, M Napoli. Or No. 3 if Napoli physically cannot play.

        • Napoli at first, but even so … we’ve identified my worst pick of the draft.

          • When R. Sox initially agreed to terms with Napoli, they talked about him as primarily 1B, and some DH, and a little C. But Salty will be the guy against most RHP, and the very good and underrated D Ross against LHP and some RHP. The contract for more than a year to Ross at his age showed how much they like him. We all could see Lavarnway appeared to have a big-league stick, but he hurt himself with an overall disappointing ’12. Don’t mean to offend anyone. I’d be rich if I had a thousand bucks for each bad pick I’ve made.
