I wouldn't take Reyes at #2 but to each his own.

I would pass on Reyes at #2 as well, but where is Manny?

Manny is getting the shaft in a lot of leagues, and I have no idea why.

Manny is a consistent masher, but he's getting up there, and the injury bug may have finally found him. In my mind, all the guys on this list had a better year than him, and most are on the incline rather than the decline of their careers.

Also, Reyes is probably a reach, but he has become the guy that everyone thought Carl Crawford would be (and made him a first rounder based on that expectation), and he's a shortstop. Maybe I should drop him a couple slots, but 19/64 is nothing to sneeze at. He's very young; perhaps next year it'll be 25/70?

I agree, Reyes at number 2 is a bit of a stretch. Other than not including Manny, the list seems decent enough.

My 1st Round would look like this as of now:

1. Pujols
2. Soriano
3. A-Rod
4. Ortiz
5. Howard
6. Hafner - 4,5,6 all interchangable but this would be my order
7. Reyes
8. Beltran
9. Cabrera
10. Utley
11. Crawford
12. Vlad

First 3 picks of 2nd would be:

Wright - I'd take Wright or Vlad at 12
Manny - injury concerns push him just out of first for me
Santana - I might take Santana at 10 - 12

29/64 would be pretty awesome.. but I think it's actually 19/64. ;-)

Looks like I won't be getting Reyes in any leagues next season. I know it's not a perfect comparison, but all the Reyes hype reminds me of last season's Figgins hype.
