Nick analyzes prospects for RotoWire and focuses on the Midwest League during the season.

Last Thursday I participated in a 15-team mixed league mock draft with industry experts (Paul Sporer, Cory Schwartz, and Derek Carty to name a few) and I came away feeling fantastic about my team. On Saturday I was on RotoWire Fantasy Sports Today on SiriusXM Fantasy and I said, "I feel like Mike McD from Rounders, I sat with the best in the world and I won." In the rest of this space I will try to keep the braggadocio to a minimum as I break my team down pick-by-pick.

Before we get to my amazing team, though, allow me to rant about why I donít love playing in mixed leagues. First off, there are just so many players. Too many. When you get a steal or good value on a player in an AL-only league the impact can be much greater because there simply aren't as many alternatives for the other owners to catch up. To continue to quote Rounders, I think "only" leagues are the only pure game left.
