If you assume he'll hit closer to .315 next year, then his numbers don't look a whole lot different than Reyes, Rollins, or Jeter. If you expect Tejada to bounce back a bit then you could put him in that range also. I'd probably rather take a Reyes/Rollins/Jeter type in round 3-4 than take Young in early round 2.
you hit the nail on the head! i plan on taking the best hitter available in round 1 (assuming a mid pick it'll be manny, ortiz, or d. lee), the best outfielder or 3b available in round 2 (assuming a mid pick it'll probably be sheffield, ichiro or a-ram) the best pitcher in round 3 (assuming a mid pick it'll probably be pedro or oswalt) and then the best available hitter out of the 2b and ss positions in rounds 4 and 5. at that point i'll probably be looking at kent, furcal, maybe jeter, reyes... all not bad to have.
