I assume this is your list post Top 5 (which would include Tejada I'm guessing) ? I like it, but would include Ichiro and maybe even Sheff or Rolen somewhere in there...


Yes I'm assuming the top 5 are sure to be gone and also Ichiro and Rolen are the next two after Tex ;-D

I'd sure like to see you justify taking Cabrera before Ichiro.

Tex and Ortiz as well for that matter.

Top 13:

Beltran
Pujols
Vlad
RJ
Tejada
Abreu
Sheffield
A-Rod
Santana
Sheets
Pedro
Helton
Crawford

So worst-case scenario you'd be "stuck" with Helton and Crawford.

Manny ranks right around Crawford and Helton... and I'd probably take him over Helton actually given that you need 3 OF's. Those are the top 13 for projected $ values. You have to be flexible in a draft and filling up your 1B slot with bargains like Sean Casey out there doesn't make sense. So yeah, I might actually go Crawford-Manny. Every offenseive category would be covered. It really comes down to the draft itself and how it's unfolding, I don't always go by strict dollar values.

thanks guys for the insight, I def gonna take helton, I was pondering crawford but on the avg cbs draft he seems to be going 3rd round, Scmidt and prior are the only 2 sp's i would take there, but with benitez closing for scmidt in a pitchers park and joe blow closing for the cubs it seems schmidt would be the better choice. I have AJ burnett as my keeper, but after RJ,Johan,Schimdt,Prior, and sheets, the rest do fall to another tier. that being said I'l just have to wait till saturday morning when the draft starts at my house, 12 teams 5x5, and see who falls to me. Drafting at the end of the 1st round is alot harder than drafting early, thats for sure!
