Soriano a 1st rounder next year?

Postby Ottman » Sun Aug 31, 2003 2:29 pm

What do you guys think? He turned out to be a horrible 1st round pick for me.

It seems to me that there were a lot of horrible first round picks this year. 8-o I would take him in the first round next year. ;-D

you were bad, Vlad


He's not alone. In my 10 team 5X5 HTH league, here were the 1st rounders:

A-Rod
RJ
Pujols
Vlad
Bonds
Schilling
Zito
Pedro
Oswalt
Soriano

Very few on that list are putting up 1st round numbers. :-t

He probably will wind up in the first round because of his combination of power and steals, plus the very scarce position he plays at. However, I personally think I would avoid him, because his streakiness is too annoying. I would rather take a more consistent hitter in the first round and then Bret Boone or Kent in the 2nd or 3rd.

I would think that Pujols, ARod, Bonds, and maybe Vlad and Helton would go before Soriano in most drafts.

He will still go in the first round next year.

I'd take Pujols next year before Soriano. Sorinao, although a first round pick, is definitely not a number one pick.

I see Soriano as kind of a late first round pick next year, between picks 8-12. Pujols, ARod, and Bonds are all locks to go ahead of him, and I would also take Helton, Nomar, and Vlad ahead of him. People who want pitchers in round 1 also might go with Pedro, Prior or Schilling before Soriano.
