Any thought on them this season!?
I believe Phi has one of the best offensivel ineups this year, and i took a chance to draft them with my first 2 picks in my 12 teams roto league (5x5).

Maybe you don't agree it but let me know what you think of it.

Utley was a bit high in my opinion depending where you had your pick assuming it was a late 1st. I don't think he's an early 2nd round pick but I would take him in the 3rd

Utley is a solid 2nd rounder.

I place him in the same tier as:

Figgins
Reyes
Soriano

I think you went a bit early on Utley. He is a second rounder in my opinion, but at pick #12, I think there are at least 3-4 people I would have taken over him. Still not bad though, he's going to be great.

This is completely reasonable if you had the 10-12 picks.

Abreu is ok as a late 1st rounder, and I would take Utley as a 2nd rounder. AS LONG AS Wright, Cabrera, and Bay are off the board by then.

I think (and I know this may not be popular) that Abreu may still be better than Bay and is a safer choice in redraft leagues, simply because he has a longer track record. Utley I believe is the real deal, but I'm not so sure he won't regress some this year. I would feel more comfortable taking him in the 3rd round to be honest and I feel that the safer 2B pick might be Marcus Giles.........

I like Abreu, he is being underrated this year. I think Utley is going too high, there is no reason to take him in the 2nd round, especially the early 2nd round. I'd much rather take a proven player there, I don't think Utley has a lot of room for improvement and he easily could slide some.
