"guys like crawford" don't necessarily drive in 80 runs. Crawford had 80 rbi once, last season. The two years before that he was in the fifties. He's improving as a hitter, yes, but 80 rbi shouldn't be expected from him. Think somewhere in the 60's.

He's smoking hot right now, but he had stretches last season where he'd be hitless for weeks at a time. I'm talking ice cold at the plate. So I'm still not completely sold.

The steals are impressive though. Wish I owned him. :-B

I agree, let's let him keep up what he's doing for a couple more months before we even begin this discussion. He could just as likely end up with 30-35, which would up his value, but nowhere near a 1st round pick.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

i wouldnt consider him a first rounder because he is no lock to swipe 50 next year, even if you assume he swipes 50 this year. if i did think he could go 20/50 i would take him in the first round, but since he has throughout his career managed in the neighborhood of 15-20 steals a season i would treat the 50 steals as sort of an outlier...something i would need to see again before believing.

I got him in the with the 100th pick this year and am lovin' it ;-D

He's probably not quite first round material, I'd take him anywhere outside the top 115 or 20 though. Who knows maybe he'll just keep gettin better?

There are two kinds of fantasy players.

Those that are ahead of the curve.

And those that are behind the curve.

In my keeper league I traded Soriano last year for Felipe, Colon, and a closer.

Last year, those three helped me win it all.

And this year, Lopez will finish as among the top 3 2b/ss, while Soriano slowly fades into the sunset.

Decide which one you want to be.

Not to say he isn't a first rounder, but this year I see .295, 20 homers and 40 steals. Not bad, but not 50.
