I'd take bay, and that is just beause, this year I've actually had more difficulty finding quality OF later in the draft, which hasnt been the case in prior years. There are some good picks at OF later, but a lot of them arent proven. And 3b seems to be pretty deep this year.

Well if I took Wright, I'd put M-Cab in the OF. If I took Bay, I'd put him in the OF and M-Cab on 3B.

I'm going to wind up with a 3B and OF no matter what, I just don't know if I want it to be M-Cab and Wright or M-Cab and Bay.

I'd take MCab any day of the week over Bay. Wright is a great pick.

I would go with Wright. He has a higher ceiling at the moment (due to his age), better supporting cast and gives you better position flexibility (which isn't huge but still).

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?


Good picks methinks. ;-D

Who did you pass on?

If last year is any indication, I think that Bay is safe from winning the HR Derby. ;-D

I love Wright and Bay, and landed them with the 9th and 12th pick in a keeper league. I think for this season, both guys are end of the first round, early 2nd type players.

I passed on Abreu, he was the one I had a hard time letting go.

I can't see MCab's value over Bay's. Bay steals bags and MCab's supporting cast is pathetic right now (Bay's ain't great, but at least he has someone to drive him in!).

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!
