Interesting that nobody's mentioned Hafner. If you put Ortiz at #6, then Hafner will be an absolute steal at number 13 or 14 (or wherever he might get drafted in the 2nd round).

Really? I thought i was reaching a bit when i took him late third. This, of course, may have a lot to do with me then also taking Helton in the fourth (couldn't resist so late) and ending up with no pitching.

I'd rank:

7. santana
8. cabrera
9. Lee
10. Tejada
11. Bay
12. Abreu
13. Crawford
14. Young
15. Wright


I likely won't be drafting Santana inside of the 1st Round because I'm fundamentally opposed to drafting a pitcher as my biggest producer but this order is pretty good I think.

Overall I think Derrek Lee is getting a little disrespected, same for Tejada and David Wright getting a little too much love. Clearly Lee won't produce like last year but if you average his career #s with last year it's still top 10 production, not to mention he has a track record of solid seasons and a bandbox of a ballpark. Wright still plays in Shea (Which eats homers, trust me, I'm a NYer and have been there plenty of times, just ask Piazza). He's not really a homerun hitter.

Those are just my 2 cents. Don't hate on the new guy ; )

Welcome to the cafe. But your statement couldn't be further from the truth on Wright. In 2004, Wright hit 32 HR and 52 2B combined in AA, AAA, MLB as a 21 year old. In 2005, he hit 27 HR, 42 2B in MLB. He has real power and as he fills out, he will hit for even more.
