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 Since then, Ryan Braun's suspension was repealed, Yoenis Cespedes' deal was finalized, David Wright's abdominal muscle was torn, and Chris Carpenter's neck was inflamed.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.

Report: Cardinals, Pirates leading charge for Jon Lester
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:37 am ET) The Cardinals and Pirates are "pushing hardest" for Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester, though the Dodgers are still involved as well, FOXSports.com reports.

The Dodgers aren't going to part with one of their top prospects in a deal for Lester, who is set to become a free agent, and the Red Sox seem likely to pick up a better youngster from either of the NL Central contenders as a result. Lester is likely to be moved before Thursday's trade deadline.

Valbuena drove in a run with an infield single in the sixth inning. He then tied the game for the Cubs with a two-run blast in the eighth, but the Rockies were able to pull out a win in extra innings. Valbuena has hit .252/.335/.433 with eight home runs and 34 RBI in 298 at-bats.

Wright (0-2) has been hittable recently, and he hasn't managed to post an outing with no baserunners since July 5. He's surrendered four earned runs in 7 1/3 innings during that stretch. Wright owns a 2.84 ERA and 27:11 K:BB ratio in 31 2/3 innings.

(7/30/2014) Rockies pitcher Adam Ottavino gave up one hit and struck out one in a scoreless 10th inning Wednesday to earn his first career save in his team's 6-4 win over the Cubs.

Ottavino was the pitcher of choice for the opportunity after LaTroy Hawkins tossed two innings in Tuesday's 16-inning marathon. He owns a 3.80 ERA and 49:12 K:BB ratio in 47 1/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Scahill (1-0) just joined the team Wednesday after the bullpen was taxed by a 16-inning game the previous night. He needed just 12 pitches to complete the bottom of the ninth inning, and his offense delivered two runs in the top of the 10th. Scahill owns a 5.68 ERA and 3:4 K:BB ratio in 6 1/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Rockies pitcher Brett Anderson didn't factor into Wednesday's decision after giving up two earned runs on 11 hits in seven innings while striking out nine and walking none in his team's 6-4 win over the Cubs.

Anderson was in line for a win before the bullpen blew an eighth-inning lead. It was his third straight quality start in the second half, and Anderson has surrendered just three earned runs in 20 1/3 innings during that stretch. He owns a 3.12 ERA and 27:13 K:BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings. Anderson is scheduled to face the Cubs again next Wednesday, this time at home.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Wood surrendered three runs in his first two innings to put himself in an early hole, then gave up another on an RBI double in the sixth. He hadn't topped seven strikeouts in a start since mid-April before posting his career-best mark Wednesday. Wood owns a 5.10 ERA and 108:55 K:BB ratio in 127 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rockies again Tuesday, this time in Colorado.

Willingham's name has come up in trade rumors this month, but the team seems likely to hold on to him through the deadline, provided another team doesn't bowl them over with an offer. He has hit .223/.366/.436 with 11 home runs, 31 RBI and now one stolen base in 188 at-bats.
