Carl Crawford.... 1st round material?

Postby jkpigskin » Mon Feb 20, 2006 8:23 pm

i personally did draft crawford in the 1st round of a slow draft... however looking more deeply into his stats i dont no if it was a good pick. He is a 5 tool player but his stats and rafael furcals stats were almost identical. crawford had 15 points on avg, 6 more hr, and about 25 rbi more. But can we really expect him to boost his hrs while maintaining his batting averge and steals?

i would like peoples input. thanks

How bout this from Roto Times - time to rethink Crawford as a 1st round pick??


Devil Rays executive vice president Andrew Friedman denied any claims that Carl Crawford (OF) TB would miss opening day with the wrist injury that caused him to pull out of the World Baseball Classic, according to the Tampa Tribune. "He's doing well," Friedman said. "I think the most difficult thing he faced was preparing to play games on March 7 and trying to rehab at the same time. I think the rest has helped a lot.

Assuming the injury won't effect him too much, Crawford can potentially end with top 5 value, so yes he is justifiable a first rounder. If you use the search function above you'll find a lot on him.

Devil Rays outfielder Carl Crawford told MLB.com the sore left wrist that caused him to withdraw from the WBC is fine. "If the season was going to start today, I'd wind up playing," he said.


The above was yanked out of cyberspace. Crawdaddy said that two days ago and the season is about 40 days away.

yea, it was found that he has a bone bruise on his wrist, and it takes 4-6 months to fully heal. It's been 4 months so far, and Crawford says his wrist is getting better.

Crawford has shown that he can produce at the ML level and is on the way to improvement IMO. His 2004/2005 numbers were very similar, so hopefully he continues on this trend and gets better.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Definitely yes. This question is so 2005.

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position
