Let's compare the two in a roto format

R: +20 to Reyes
RBI: +30 to Tejada
HR: +10 to Tejada
SB: +65 (at least) to Reyes
BA: Even

So which would you rather have, 65 SB and 20 R or 30 RBI and 10 HR? This is not even close, even if you discount Reyes a little bit due to the fact that Tejada is an iron man and he is not.

I also find it interesting how those who are down on Reyes, in this and other threads, can offer no more of a rationale than injuries from 2 years ago and "gut feelings".

Not to mention the strategic advantage that Reyes yields: if you own him, you do not have to worry about rolling the dice on questionable guys in the later rounds to stay competitive in SBs.


True, but stolen bases are more fickle than the hitting cats.. if Reyes were to tweak or injure anything from the waist down his value would drop like a stone, along with the sb's.



You can say that about any speed guy including Crawford, Rollins, etc. If a power hitter gets an oblique or wrist injury, he pretty much loses a great deal of value too. Speed guys are indeed more risky in that respect, but not by a lot. The risk is more a factor of the individual player not the proportionment of the stats across the 5x5 Roto category. Dave Roberts and NJ are always getting hurt for instance.


Well I put Reyes 2nd, so what do I know?

Not bad although I think you gotta put Howard over Ortiz due to Howard playing a position
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

He played 10 games at 1b, so it probably depends on league rules.

I think Guerrero is too much of an injury risk to take as a first rounder at this point (same with Manny). I'm not trying to win a league with my first pick....I just don't want to lost it with my first pick. I'd be more apt to take Wright than Manny or Guerrero (I'd take Sizemore over them if it was a keeper league..and maybe in a regular league.)

That being said it's not like I would laugh at someone who took a palyer such as Manny or Vlad (they are great players).
