I got Vidro in the 22nd round and was pumped about it, he'll be backing up Cano but still great backup to have ;-D

Vidro should still hit for a decent average but I'm not sure he can do much else. He's also very much injury prone. I'd grab him in the last couple round as a MI insurance and nothing more. Sad to see him go though. :,-(

I wonder if Vidro might somehow pull a swan song out of his wazoo just to frost Soriano and keep him out there in the OF? Soriano's 2B play in the WBC was prettty grim but all the reports are that the OF may give up even more RAR...hee hee...

I had Vidro on one team but cut him loose as I decided I needed something else. I can't even remember what, Jay Gibbons or Nick Swisher or something like that... :-?

If Vidro had no health problems he would be top 10. But considering his injury history, he cannot really be relied upon as a starting 2B.

I agre that Belliard etc are better options, but I would still rather have Vidro than Lowell.

Horrible lineup, horrible park, injury history. Decent guy in a really deep league, but it would have to be bigger than a 14-teamer for me to be interested.

I think the Sox picked up Choi to back-up Snow, in that Youkilis will play 3B.
