my league draft, round 1

hi, this is (* REDACTED *) round of my league's minor league draft.  

we got through three rounds yesterday and i was originally going to post them all but then i found myself writing up this lengthy disclaimer about how you shouldn't talk about players that haven't been picked yet, only these players here, and then i found myself repeating it at the bottom of the post, and then i realized that it wasn't going to work and that i should just post the first round for now.

so that's what i'm doing.

draft pool is basically 2007 draftees, imports, and unowned players.  it's a fairly deep league (25-man minors), so the unowned pool is pretty shallow.

it's not indefinite keeper - you get them for 3 years supercheap and then can extend them for up to 7 more at a higher salary, so you get them for a long time but not forever.  so there's some discount for guys who will take years and years to show up and some premium on immediate help, although philosphies vary.

here's the first round.  i've bolded my own picks.  i don't know if the other guys who post here want to be pointed out or not so i'll let them identify themselves in the comments if they feel like it.

Round 1
1 (1) Bail Bonds - Matt Wieters, C (BAL)
2 (2) Galacticos - Mike Moustakas, SS (KCR)
3 (3) Rattlers - David Price, P (TBD)
4 (4) Galacticos - Jason Heyward, OF (ATL)
5 (5) Rattlers - Matt LaPorta, OF (MIL)
6 (6) Galacticos - Jarrod Parker, P (ARI)
7 (7) Galacticos - Rick Porcello, P (DET)
8 (8) Polygamists - Josh Vitters, 3B (CHC)
9 (9) Incident - Kosuke Fukudome, OF (CHC)
10 (10) Winos - Michael Burgess, OF (WAS)
11 (11) MoneyShots - Beau Mills, 3B (CLE)
12 (12) Galacticos - Ross Detwiler, P (WAS)
13 (13) Drunks - Hiroki Kuroda, P (LAD)
14 (14) Winos - Casey Weathers, P (COL)
15 (15) Incident - Nick Noonan, 2B (SFG)
16 (16) Egomaniacs - Jordan Walden, P (ANA)

so.  for your interest and edification.  comments welcome.  try to only talk about these picks for now, since the draft is still going on, although as i say we've already done 2 more rounds after this one.
