2017 Mock Draft Overview

I, along with probably everyone else who is reading this, have done a ton of mock drafts to get ready for the fantasy baseball season. I wanted to take the team I liked the most, and kind of explain the basis of my strategy and why I picked some of the players I did. This particular team is from a 10 team Head to Head points mock on which I had the 9th overall pick.
