I read up on Bay and it seems he is a definite number 1 pick, especially since he provides ALL 5 categories, also his constant improvement over the last 3 years. Any good discussion for or against this view?
For that matter, did I do the right thing with Wright?
Those were very good picks. In my 10 team league, I'm hoping Bay/Wright/MCab will still be around when I pick last.
Bay is at his peak and he should be able to sustain his numbers for a couple years at least. The biggest question mark for me heading into 05 was his Ks.

Bay was one of only 7 players who had at least 100 R, 100 RBI, 30 HR, .300 BA and .900 OPS.
Bay clearly had the least support out of the players above. Throw in his age and speed, he is a first rounder. People may say that they want to see him do it again but his minor league numbers support his case.
