Where's Barmes? He has 2B eligibility, and I like him a lot more than some of the lower level guys on this list. Maybe 8-9, in that range.

I have him at SS
2B is actually slighly deepr than SS in NL only.

He comes in ranked at number 12 @ 2B
and number 9 @ SS ..

why are you so down on Kent?

Nobody is going to produce the power numbers from that position like him?

and Spivey over Reyes?
I know Junior is being over looked in almost any format, but I cannot see him bieng above Reyes.

curious?

well, kent is getting old. i think he's going to break down this year. just too much risk for my tastes, and hitting in LA doesn't help matters.

as for spivey over reyes....

first off, milwaukee is going to have a pretty decent lineup for Junior to hit in front of, and secondly, i don't see reyes playing more than half the games next year, and even if he does, i don't see him hitting much over .270. he's quick, but he's just not a very good hitter. and if he doesn't produce, he doesn't stay at the top of the lineup, and if he doesn't stay at the top of the lineup, his value suffers tremendously.

spivey is just less of a risk. (wow. what an odd thing to say...)

9 D'Angelo Jimenez
10 Todd Walker

15 Placido Polanco

16 Luis A. Gonzalez
17 Desi Relaford
18 Bill Hall
19 Eric Young
20 Freddy Sanchez


1 and 2 are fine, Id switch up a little after that:

3 Lorreta
4 Reyes
5 Vidro
6 castillo -- he's getting a little old, and his SB's have been steadily declining
7 - utley -- Im huge on this guy, and you can get him later than this (this is who Id target if I were you, you can get him late and he could be a top 5)
8 - durham
9 - walker
10 - burke ** if he wins the job, after today ive got NO CLUE -- if he goes to the minors, well drop him WAY down, if your draft is tommorow I just might stay away from him
11 - miles
12 - jimenez
13- spivey
14- grudz
15 - relaford
16 - young
17 -- hall
18 -- polanco - he's on the bench and not starting and nothing out of phil says he will get more than 100 abs this yr, makes him worthless

Switch Utely and Durham and I agree with this list. Reyes is interesting, because his value depends a lot on what other players you already have. Drop him a couple spots in roto if ya already got a Juan Pierre type player, but if you lack speed (like I did) then raise him to the top 2. The other guys remain consistent though.

Oh and in NL only Walker could end up being a steal, something to keep an eye on.

No agruement from me.

Well one.
I can't go into the draft hoping Burke gets a job. If he is still around late, I'll will grab him up. But everythng I have seen or read says Biggio.

Biggio would slide in nicely into the top five if he had elig. I'll probably target him at my UT or OF and slide him down to either MI or 2B depending upon the draft.

thanks. ;-D

With Bell, Utley and Thome all nursing injuries this spring, Polanco could see more playing time than 100 AB's. He wouldn't go to first but Utley could and Polanco in his spot.

Phils management has said they are very impressed w both his performance and attitude this spring. And there have been other teams interested in him so it is possible he ends up somewhere else.

A lot of ifs, but maybe worth a late desperate pick.
