I don't think it's that big of a risk to wait on Chavez in the third-most drafts are going Arod, Rolen, Chavez/Beltre.

Here's the problem with that: I'm the 11th pick in third round and during the second or third Chavez would most certainly be gone. Especially with this being a 16 team league. I'm very high on him and dont want to lose him and be stuck with a second tier third baseman.

I've got to change my sig. I'm not from Oakland nor do I care for them. I'm a Yankee fan who grew up loving Rickey Henderson.

In addition, after the top 5 3b's Arod rolen Chavez, Blalock, Beltre, I feel there is a nice dropoff to Mora and company. 3b is a position where I need to be solid that's why I'm looking for a guy like Abreu/Manny as my stud OF in the first round. To summarize, I'm not a homer, I'm a Henderson.

me too. Chavez early 2nd rd is a Homer pick Perlick - no way around that. His upside is as high as Beltre's downside.

Don't listen to them perlick.

This is what you do. Get Ichiro in the first round and then Schmidt or Sheets on the come back.

If Ichiro is off the board in the first take Beltre and the best pitcher on the come back and target Pierre for the third round.

I may be alone here, but I think 3B is deep this year.

AROD
Rolen
Beltre
Blalock
Chavez
ARAM
Wright
Mora
Chipper
Lowell
Glaus

Yes there is a dropoff in there, but I dont think there is a big drop til you get to Glaus and arguably Lowell...The top 5 there is a SLIGHT drop. It's worth it to pass on Chavez hope he gets back to you, but if not I don't think you are in bad shape.

No way Chavez goes before the late 3rd, maybe 4th round. I would go Abreu and Ortiz with the first 2 picks and do Chavez and Michael Young with the 3 and 4. Then you have a sick infield and a solid OF starter with Abreu.

But no pitching, in a 16 team league, you need to take a pitcher in the first 3-4 rounds I think.
