Why? I don't know of anyone looking for him even remotely early.

over-valued = drafted earlier than where they should be drafted

I don't think anyone is really a believer in GMJ at this point. He probably won't be drafted too early. I'll be willing to take a late round risk on him. ;-D

Of course, where he gets drafted will depend largely on Yahoo's o-rank for him next a lot of people use Yahoo's rankings as a guide on draft day. So, if he gets ranked high there, he'll be off the board way too early for me.

i wish yahoo would list the players in alphabetical order and not in their overall rankings. that would probably make things interesting.

If they try starting him and it fails, they're just going to move him back into the pen. Getting someone with the best RP statline in baseball in the ~5th round (because of the injury) could be a steal.

People who WILL be over-valued:

Dye- Can you say Beltre? This is a fluke year if I've ever seen one.

Liriano- He pitched well starting for 1/3 of a season and got hurt three times. You could have someone with just as much upside like Cain much cheaper.

Howard- Every season, some young 1b comes along and posts huge numbers. When you can get quality guys in round 5, I'm not taking anyone top-5 unless it's Ortiz or Pujols.

Mauer will go WAY too early, just like every other quality catcher always does. Until someone like Piazza comes back around, you can't justify drafting 15 HR 10 SB that early.

Or Travis Hafner? 100-42-117-.308 in 129 games 8-o

Hafner's made steady gains each season as a professional. This year doesn't look like a fluke season to me, but just a continuation of an upward trend. He's as good a bet as any to repeat his performance next year. If only he would have gotten one more start at first before injuring his hand... then he would have been 1B eligible in Yahoo leagues next season.

Arroyo and Mussina.

I don't believe either will repeat those seasons next year.


have to agree with the others, he's too risky to take in the first 6 or 7 picks and thats exactly where he will go. There is just too much depth at 1B to be drafting him there.

Putz is for real, man, I don't know what you're talking about.

Thome had an incredible first half, then faded in the second half. I think he'll be taken right where he should, maybe a little higher.

Jermaine Dye has got to be the candidate for this one. He's good, but this is far and beyond his best season. I can see him at .290/30/next year, but this is rediculous.
