I think the AVG will drop down to the .270 range, and the HRs and RBIs drop to low 20s and the 80s. IMO pitchers will start pitching him tougher and that 2nd full year around will hurt him. I'm gonna wait to draft 2B again this year, and be happy with the production I get from my late picks.
You could be right. Waiting on 2b is not a bad strategy, and it what I usually do if someone doesnt drop to me.
However you're just guessing about how he'll do next year, not basing it on any numbers. He's improved every year he's been in the bigs, and IMO he's more likely improve then to drop. THe Phils put a lot of runner on in a hitter's park. He should get his RBI's.
4th or 5th round is about right on to lock up a stud 2b. Dont think I'd go higher at this time, and I either Soriano or Utley aren't available there, I'll wait again on 2bs.
