Where do you find room for Hafner and Tex? 1 of them is probably trade bait.


The draft was set up to have a DH and corner infielder.


That makes more sense. Thanks ;-D

it is amazing to me how quickly people forget his injury history.
I guess if JD Drew signs in Boston, he goes number three overall, right? ..
why not just pick Mark Prior at pick four ...

this is good stuff.. :-b


What injury history? He's been healthy 2 years in a row and he's 23 years old...if you mean his "injury history when he got hurt when he was 20 years old" then well...wow...don't forget the time the pulled his groin in kindergarten.

If injuries scare you, you should be much more concerned about the #1 pick (pujols) getting hurt again with his assorted maladies or the #4 pick (beltran) and his wheels or #7 (vlad).

Comparing Reyes to Drew or Prior is irresponsible.

The last 2 years Reyes has 1300 AB.

In my main keeper league (10-team, keep 8), one owner has:

Howard (1.2)
Santana (1.3)
A-Rod (1.5)
Crawford (1.9)

Nothing like giving a single owner nearly half of the 1st rounders! This is going to be an uphill battle.

Okay, Jose Reyes was injured and it was because of the Mets. The Mets were trying to teach Reyes how to run, even though he is one of the fastest men in the league. Since then, they backed off, and he is now injury free.

But Rod Smith sucked this year....
