Bonds...?

Postby intense » Fri Feb 17, 2006 4:25 pm

Whats the story on Bonds... I was doing my practice draft in public league and snatched him in the 7th... Where should he be going in a normal 5x5 12 man league and what do you guys project him at stats wise?

I think getting him in the 7th is a major steal. I've been seeing him go as early as 3rd round. In my OPS league, he'll probably go 2nd.

While Bonds is pretty risky this year, I still think I'd take him in the third in a standard 5x5.

i wouldnt take the risk on him early,news is that they arent planning on him playing everyday. But if you can get him in that 6-7 range hes a nice option. I would take him over vernon wells or coco crisp.

Hes just buying time before he gets bought by an AL team to go DH.

How about 56th overall?

Bonds is still available.

Team:

Ortiz
Bay
Aramis Ramirez
Rollins

I could take Bonds, Sexson, M Giles, Konerko, Nathan, Chad Cordero, Kent, Rolen, Chavez, Glaus, Tek, Giambi, Damon, R Johnson, Buehrle, Wells, Magglio, Pierre...

Everyone else you could suggest is probably gone by now, but maybe give it a shot...

Anyways, with all that available, should I take Bonds?

I take Konerko or Kent. Excellent value at 56 overall. Forget Bonds.

You better start worrying about your starting pitching though. If RJ is the best around, you have a problem potetntially. Hopefully CZam is still on the board as he slips in some leagues.

Konerko over Sexson?

Don't worry, I'll get all the underrated starters. Haren, Blanton, Lackey, Lieber, Cain, O Perez, Harang, Liriano, etc etc. I'm working the middle to the end of the draft for SP and RP


Zambrano was taken over Sheets and Harden. :-o

Saving 2B for a late, late pick of Mike Lowell or Freel.

Buehrle is probably the best pitcher available. Smoltz, Zito, Schmidt, Clemens

I take Konerko over Sexson any day of the week. Sexson is Konerko with the potential for less avg and more injuries imo.

I don't trust Sexson's shoulder to be honest. And RJ in the 5th is a steal in my opinion.

I'd go with Konerko in that group.
