Choose the next outfielder I will draft...

Postby Dr.DooM » Tue Mar 22, 2005 1:47 pm

Assume this is a mixed non-keeper league. 11 teams 5x5 rot with OBP in lieu of avg.

The following outfielders are available in the 10th round:

J.D. Drew
Jason Bay
Jose Guillen
Brian Giles
Aaron Rowand
Garret Anderson
Shawn Green
Magglio Ordonez
Preston Wilson

I am leaning towards Drew simply because of better OBP.

They are all very comparable but I would personally go with Jason Bay.

Bay's still hurt, and now he may have to go to extended ST...I'd rank him lower at this point. :-o

What's wrong with Ordonez? I think he's a great player. ;-D

Yea, they're still around but only because a few people started an early rush for pitching (which I didn't fall for). My bats are decent but now I don't have any stud pitchers as a result (best pitcher is C.Zambrano).

The guy that has no questions surrounding him is
Jose Guillen (aside from his anger management problems) and he could equal the best of the bunch of them...

Jason Bay is someone you want to take but with the questions surrounding his injury it makes him a little more risky.

Magglio appears to be fine and if he is than he is probably the best of the lot. Still questions.

J.D. Drew people swear by, he makes me nervous.

My personal list would be...

Although it is tough...

Magglio - too much value in the 10th...
Bay - same deal
Guillen
Giles - should have a huge comeback year...
J.D. Drew - I see injuries in his future
Garret Anderson - A little worried about him...
Shawn Green - He will have a good year but he will last if all of these other players are available...
Rowand - 1 year wonder?
Wilson - Too many ???'s avoid until much later
