I'd say that is the opposite of a steal, taking him that early. Don't forget a lot of guys like Crawford are great players but they get so hyped up that you have to take him early in order to get them. Last year I picked him up off of FA! Those are the steals: the guys not a lot of people are aware of that produce: the Carl Crawford of last year, not this year.

I think Crawford at 20 was a very good pick in Roto a guy like Crawford can lock up steals for you.

You might end up disappointed with that pick. Yost may be leaning toward Botallico as the closer to start the season.

In a 13 teamer I got J. Morneau at 11.9. Translates to a 13th round pick in a 12 teamer.

Hope this works out for you. I like Morneau as well, but 1B is incredibly deep and this guy has had a really rough winter (pneumonia, appedicitis).

Getting Crawford that late is indeed a steal. I have him as a top five guy this year/

Jimmy Rollins in the 9th, especially considering Furcal went in the 5th ;-D

Ok dont laugh. Aaron Boone in the 20th round to me is a steal.


Hey I got him in the 18th and thought I was getting a good deal. 20th is even better.

Would you guys consider these two steals: Adam Dunn in the 7th and Mike Piazza 13th?
