top prospects to take? - WHIR

Chris Young and Andrew Miller.

Or maybe Young and Maybin (if you are a beilver in TINSAAPP).

Young is a possible 20/20 guy next year and could even go 30/30 in the future.

Andrew is a big guy and should hold up better over the course of a season than Lincecum, who has the kind if delivery that often leads to injury.

Maybin isn't a bad pick either.

I would rank them like this.

Young
Gallardo
Maybin
Linecum


I'd also go with Young and Gallardo. In fantasy leagues I prefer to get the guys who are closer to the majors. It would be swell to have Bruce/McCutchen/Maybin, but they aren't going to even sniff the majors until late 2008 at the earliest.

Young will be full time in April, and Gallardo by midseason. Plus, they're both top 15 prospects.

No brainer to me.

Gallardo = overrated IMO

will never be a 1, 2, or 3 pitcher

based on what?

His stats don't reflect that belief. His numbers are stellar.

And even the most pessimistic scouting reports say he projects to be at least a 2/3

Votto might be the safe pick but he has no where the upside as Bruce and Maybin.

Logically I'd pick Maybin and Bruce. But I just like Lincecum too much. As to Maybin vs. Bruce, flip a coin IMO
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

Any two of the three OF's and you can't go wrong Maybin, Bruce, McCutcheon and probably in that order.
