I like Crawford but there are others out there that I have more interest in getting during a draft. In a KL draft I would take Crawford ASAP if I was 7th pick or higher in the 1st round.

What is it with roto players that they don't understand what the term "5 tool player" means? 5 tool player is NOT a 5 category player in fantasy baseball. 5 tool players mean they hit for average, power, have good speed, field well, and have a good arm. I always laugh when people call 5 category roto players 5 tool players.

This is almost identical?! Wow.

Well the first question is, do you honestly expect Furcal to get 46 SB again?

The 2nd question is how much do you value SB? I really like to get at least 20-30 SB out of my first round pick so I don't have to worry about it later. Seems like you can always find a good HR/RBI guy in the 2nd and 3rd round but 4 category speed guys are rarely around still. I still find Crawford to be an end of the 1st round guy in a 14 team league, in a 12 team he may slip to 2nd round.

Isnt Crawford going to be bumped up in the batting order this year?

That would decrese his Hr's a little and RBI's probably alot.

Possibly more stolen bases and he should score alot more runs.

I agree with whoever said in roto a 1st round pick and a 2nd round pick in H-H.

That Furcal comparison was just unfair to Crawford.

Steals are a lot harder to come by than HR or RBI. Lots of players steal, but few of them can hit like Crawford, most of them totally destroy you in power catagories, whereas Crawford holds his own and will probably improve. Definitely a 1st round pick.
