We were honored to have Jay Jaffe join our group. Jay is famous for putting Baseball Prospectus on the map but he also has own blog called the Futility Infielder. I've been reading Jay for over 10 years now which should make both of us feel old. His breakdown of HOF candidates at baseball prospectus is always one of my favorite reads of the year.
Since this is a Dodger biased league let us see how the Dodgers were drafted. I'm going to put them in order as they got drafted.

|Sherrill||29th Round/12th Pick||Jacob Burch|
As you can see quite a few teams ended up with zero Dodgers. I went with Kemp with the 3rd overall pick because it is a Dodger league. For me it was between him and Braun so it was easy to take the guy I'm going to root for everyday.
From time to time we will check in how everything is going. I'm writing this post today because I'm in the lead today and probably won't be by tomorrow.
