Less Filling, Plays Great

A platoon of Utley and Polanco would be a perfect fit, as Polanco murders Lefties and Utley enjoys righties. Together this tandem, could match up to some of the upper tier 2B.
I'm with Cornbread about holding off on even drafting a 2B unless some of the bigger names slip beyond the 8th round. Otherwise, I'm pretty content on getting Utley with my last pick of the draft.

In a competitive league, Utley won't last until the last round, so yeah he's huge to get then.

Dave Roberts is a poor man's Juan Pierre. Less filling, plays great. Any others?

My call on Utley for 2005 gives me some redemption from my Matt Riley Hype I caused.

Anyway, Who is the 2006 Utley/Kent version of the- 'Less filling plays great comparison'?

It was you who caused all the Matt Riley Hype? I think that caused more trouble that can be redemed by just Utley over Kent. How about 1 more correct pick this year?

hahaha

I would say Ryan Howard over any 1B but Pujols pretty much. He won't come as cheaply as utley did but he should outplay his price.

This is really getting out of hand. Best case scenario for Howard is Dunn-type numbers, and that's only if he isn't benched against lefties.

Looking at the Cafe Mock Draft and focusing on rounds 21 and higher, I'd say two good possibilities are Granderson and Willingham.
