One thing I am realizing: Utley will be a first-rounder in more drafts than not. He has put up solid first outfielder numbers, and 2B is going to be a barren wasteland next year with Soriano gone. Big dropoff after Chase.
I do think next year will be a crazy draft year, though. That whole first round will probably be different in nearly every league. It isn't as clear-cut as this year was with everyone's first four picks or so set in stone.
Agreed on Utley. There are some guys who could be pretty solid, such as Cano, Brian Roberts, maybe Brandon Phillips, maaaaybe Kent. But for the most part, there isn't much to look at as far 2B goes after Chase......Giles, Uggla, Iguchi, Sanchez, Figgins......?? It seems to be a position where it's tough to visualize what guys might be capable of. Lots of uncertainty at 2B for '07.
As far as the rest of the draft, well these guys are smoking some good stuff cause it's the only way you can explain these results! Vlad @ #17!?! What?! I can only pray to God that someone in my league takes Howard with the third pick, letting guys like Ortiz slip further (to me, hopefully).
Also, any pitcher other than Santana in round 1 is ridiculous. Carp's good, but not THAT good......
