Because when you draft a stud like Miggy you tend to ignore that position as well. And in any league finding talent at any position in late July on the wire is a tough task, though it can be done. One could have drafted a Chipper/Braun combo and done just as well as the Phillips/Upton combo. Face it yoda you were WRONG and DEAL with it.

Utley was the better pick

no kidding. it happens. give it a break with the excuses and other bs.


Never. Upto this point Utley has been better. No one knows in the next 2+ months who would have done better.

If you draft a couple of middling 2B towards the middle to late rounds, then you have an option if one of them does not work out or goes down (see my Phillips, Upton example). When you draft a stud like Utley, you tend to ignore that position and do not focus on getting a good back up for him. Just another way of looking at it.


i dont understand the argument of easier to replace...if you can replace m-cab easier than utley, than doesnt that make utley that much better when he actually IS in the lineup?
