lol... smartass...

anyway... i know there have been alot of "ss of the future" questions here... i'm just trying to guage how much emphasis i should put on targeting some of these "other" guys as i already have bj on my roster...

it's a h2h keeper where you keep 12 and there are 12 bench slots... right now, i'd say i could drop a guy like cm wang or dmitri young for some prospect... but if i've got bj already, i'm wondering if i shouldn't just focus more on this year...

anyway... thanks ahead of time for everything...

If you are trying to tell me that you can drop Dmitri young for Brandon Wood or Stephen Drew...You do that in an instant... both players will make the show this year I don't doubt that at all... I also dont doubt the fact that both of them will put up better numbers then Young... If I had to choose Id take Brandon Wood... NO questions asked.

Drop Wang, Young, and two other guys and pick up Wood, Drew, and both Uptons.

well, i've picked up wood... i already had bj... and someone else already has drew...

isn't it a bit early to be picking up justin??? i can only keep 12... it's not a dynasty... if it was, i would have had him already... is he worth using a bench spot when he won't even play this year???

thanks

vmart*
pujols*
utley*
berkman*
hermida*

Eh, nevermind. Upton wouldn't/shouldn't be kept over Rolen, Escobar, Unit, Valverde, etc.... he'd be a decent risk though.

didn't think so... can't wait til he's up though... :-[

thanks for your help...

but back to my original question...

how do the 4 of them compare? ie... numbers in their primes... plus... likelihood that each of them will stay at ss... (%)

thanks

Upton might play the earliest, but I have no doubt Wood and Drew will end up being the better force at the plate.

really?

huh?

i thought bj was one of the biggest hyped prospects out there... like can't miss stud type... now both wood and drew will be better?

i believe the wood hype based on what he did last year... would love to see him follow that up with something similar...

but drew is someone i'm not as familiar with...

even thought there has been 100's of posts on him here...

i just thought the upton's had the edge, then wood, then drew...

anyone else...

% justin goes to cf??? (well, i suppose it's prolly to early to say)
% bj moves to tb??? (maybe a soriano II type thing... boy is he adament about staying at ss)
% wood moves to tb??? (especially with aybar there... maybe mcpherson is traded???)

thanks again.
