Top 5 in redraft... His baseline production is great and his upside is just as great.

I really think that Miggy is gonna go off soon, probably this season. Chicks dig the long ball, and fantasy player obviously do too, but its important to look at the other stats. His HR feel from 33 to 26 from 2004 to 2006. But over that same stretch, his SO feel from 148 to 108, his BB went up from 68 to 88, his BA from .294 to .339, and his OPS from .879 to .998. When people talk about Miggy being one of the truly great hitters, there's a reason for it. I wouldn't let him slip out of the top-10, he's probably top 5.

I took him 3rd in an NL only 6X6 dynasty. Only Pujols and Reyes went before him. Personally, I think he can be the second most dominant all around hitter after Pujols. His peers consider him the best hitter after Pujols. He is a monster and is just now getting ready to really breakout.

Don't snooze on him.

In redraft, I'd take him 6th overall, and in keepers, I might take him 2nd overall.

I'm taking Vald and Ortiz over him who are usually around mid-late 1st round. However, I can certainly understand the reasoning to take him just outside the top 5 in a redraft and I won't question anyone for doing so.

4th and 5th is a good spot for him, but Arod and Howard are worth more than him.

I reached for him in our initial keeper draft last year at 11th, gambling in taking him over David Wright. Clearly, I have no regrets over that now.

In terms of pure hitting talent, he's pretty much second only to Pujols. His stage of development at his age (23) is scary.

Last year, strikeouts went down, walks went up, average went up. Slight dip in power was likely the result of him trying to hit the ball, not mash it, which is a good thing. And he hit his fair share of doubles last year anyway, indicating last year will probably be one of the few in his career he doesn't lock down 30 homers.

The only knicks in his armor are a young supporting cast and a spacious home ballpark.

I think he is way more likely to improve on last year's numbers than Soriano, Reyes or Howard. I think he's top-five in a redraft, second in a keeper.

In a keeper I would take him 2nd in a heartbeat.

Redraft he would drop down to 4th-6th for me.

Someone needs to explain to me why you'd draft Reyes ahead of him in a redraft, but not in a keeper? Aren't they roughly the same age?
