I would not use a 4th or 5th round pick on Santana. If you really think he will go that high, then I would suggest participating in some of our mock drafts here at the Cafe', so you can get a more accurate reading as to when to take him. The only way Santana goes that high is if the draft is incredibly pitching heavy.

For mid-round players, I also love to find guys with huge splits, either home/away and lefty/righty. This works best in the outfield, where you can plan to get four guys to fill three slots if you have daily transactions.

If you can nab Trot Nixon and only play him against right hand starters, you'd get 85-90% of his production. He bats 100 points higher, and his homers are 24-2 righty/lefty.

Jacques Jones was like that last year, but his split stats have evened out this year.

Hank Blalock is another, but he's likely to not last so long since he plays 3rd base.

Most Colorado role players have a good home/away split.

bringin this back up, thought of a few more.

Nick Johnson 1B - he could be a .300+ average, 25 homer guy if he stays healthy.

Josh Beckett SP - going under the radar, but has been dominant.

Victor Martinez C - hitting .338 in september.

Jason Phillips C, 1B - hitting great this year. solid numbers for a catcher

Chase Utley 2B

Wilson Alvarez SP

Austin Kearns (remember him). If it weren't for the shoulder injury he would have had a huge year thgis year

Mark Teixeira- Could be better than Blalock

Might also think that some of the supposed "studs" that were duds this year may slip to much later rounds now. Burrell, Konerko, Green (possibly) A.Ramirez has picked it back up this year but some may not be convinced, although i like him playin for the Cubs and think he'll do even better next year. Ramirez didnt go until the 21st rd in our draft this year.. by me :-D and ive been pretty happy. Also mentioned already that i agree heavily with.. L.Hernandez,N.Johnson. Both went undrafted in our league. But Hernandez pretty much carried my team for about 2 mths and if N.Johnson stays healthly he could be in for a monster year. Also take a chance or two on guys returning from injuries.. Nevin,Kearns. They could slip because of their history w/ injury.

I don't think he will drop too far in the draft. A lot of people still haven't noticed him, but due to the final run, he has gotten noticed by a few. Plus, Yankee starters usually go fairly quick due to getting wins.

I like the last 2 but I would wait another year on the first 2 after coming back from serious injuries like that.

I think I would have to go after:


Miguel Cabrera
Austin Kearns
Shawn Green
Phil Nevin
Todd Walker
Aubrey Huff
Woody Williams
C.C. Sabathia <- Especially, NOBODY usually drafts him...and he's ok...if it weren't for those 3-4 no decisions at the beginning of the year.
D. Marte <- Depends on Spring Training...
