Baseball America Dream Draft 2006 redux

In March, 10 BA staffers had what they called a "Dream Draft" (http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/majors/features/26872.html), where each of them drafted 10 players from all baseball in order of "best player available" for the purposes of 2006-2011 production.  Here are two of those teams (I checked, and it's not listed as subscriber content any more), the one voted "best draft" by most of his peers, and the one voted "worst draft" by most of his peers (and a list of players that made the "surprise" list by being undrafted).
