2012 Draft Prep: 12-team mixed H2H draft (2.0)


It's amazing how much can change in just a month.

Obviously, we needed a new mixed-league Head-to-Head mock draft after our most-recent one on Feb. 10. Since then, Ryan Braun's suspension was repealed, Yoenis Cespedes' deal was finalized, David Wright's abdominal muscle was torn, and Chris Carpenter's neck was inflamed.

So yeah, I expected to see different results this time around. But the number of owners whose approaches changed surprised me. Nobody adopted a crazy pitching-heavy strategy, which can sometimes happen in Head-to-Head leagues. Nobody reached for format-specific gems (or at least prospective gems) Dustin Ackley and Logan Morrison. Everyone went a little more orthodox this time around, which is especially surprising this late in the preseason, after seemingly every draft scenario has been played out, every sleeper column has been written, and the realization of "shoot, I actually have to live with this team" has hit.

In fact, the "reachiest" guy of anyone might have been me after I knowingly and willingly overpaid for Lucas Duda with a 12th-round pick. Look, I really wanted him, and after missing out on both Morrison and Jason Heyward when they went earlier than I expected, I don't know what I would have done if I lost him, too. Cried, probably. Other reaches include Cespedes in Round 10 and Dexter Fowler in Round 13, but again, you can't underestimate the impact of personal favoritism. It's at work in every draft.

As for the bargain picks, Michael Bourn once again slid to the double-digit rounds even though he was a top-15 outfielder last season. Paul Konerko fell to Round 8, and Erick Aybar, a top-10 shortstop last year, fell to the second-to-last round. That's what happens sometimes in these shallower leagues. When starting jobs are available for only the top 12 options, even the shallowest positions run deep.

by Chris Cwik |

With the weight loss, Garcia is hoping to keep his power potential. "I don't want to lose speed, I don't want to lose power," Garcia said. "I want to be in the middle. I know I can do a little bit of everything, so that's why I've been working really hard on speed, power, hitting and defense, so I can help my team win."

Garcia hit .244/.305/.413 over 172 at-bats last year.

by Chris Cwik |

Though he left the Royals, Butler said there is no hard feelings. "It’s disappointing, but you understand that the game’s a business and I didn’t leave on bad terms," Butler said. "I’d be more than happy to come back. That’s home for me. I’ll always be forever tied to the Royals organization and the community there."

The 28-year-old hit .271/.323/.379 over 549 at-bats last year.

by Chris Cwik |

Shapiro added, "it's something we'll probably look at over the next couple of months. He has all the precursors that we would look for to enter into a multiyear agreement."

The 28-year-old Kluber is set to make the league-minimum next season, and won't be available for arbitration until 2016. He's under team control through 2018, so there's no hurry for either side to agree to a new deal.

Mauer was able to fully participate in an offseason training program after injuries prevented him from doing so last year.

Report: Yankees looking to void milestone bonuses for A-Rod
by Chris Cwik |
(1/25/2015) The Yankees are looking to void milestone bonuses in Alex Rodriguez 's contract, according to the New York Daily News.

When Rodriguez signed his deal with the club in 2007, it contained bonuses as Rodriguez tied or passed the top home run hitters. Rodriguez, who has 654 career home runs, is just six away from tying Willie Mays, which would trigger a $6 million bonus. He is also set to receive an additional $6 million once he ties Babe Ruth, and another $6 milliion if he ties Hank Aaron.

The team, however, now views those bonuses as worthless due to his 2014 suspension. The team will argue that these bonuses were signed under false pretenses. The club is apparently willing to fight the player's union over the decision should Rodriguez file a grievance. 

Rodriguez, who hasn't played since 2013, has already found it difficult to mend the fences with his team. Rodriguez proposed a meeting with the club where he would publicly apologize for his actions last season, but the team declined the offer. "This is a relationship that is never going to be repaired," one source told the Daily News.
