I like Hanley better, mainly because he is much younger and I think he will improve in some categories, while Young is getting older and I think on the decline.

Tough call. Michael Young has been pretty consistent the past few years, so i think it's safe to say what your getting with him. HanRam on the other hand has only played one season (which was at a much higher level than was expected of him). I wouldn't be surprised if he failed to match last season's numbers.

HanRam = more upside plus lots of SB's.
M.Young = safer pick

Both will be overrated this year. I'd take a big bat and then wait to draft a SS later.

I do agree with Yoda, they are both very overrated, and I've seen Hanley go way too high in some drafts. I'd still take him over Young, but not at the expense of taking him in the first few rounds.

Agree. I think Hanley's numbers will regress alot (with the exception of SBs).

Young is much the better pick, IMHO. I'll love to see an opponent pick HRam before me so that Young is still available.

Young is 30 and hasn't declined in the last 4 years. His HR were down a bit last year, but not by much and right in line with his 2003 numbers. His BA in 2006 was in line with his 2003 and 2004 numbers (2005 being a little higher than he'll consistently hit). He had 215 hits for the 3rd straight year (2003 he only had 204). The last 2 years he hasn't stolen as many bases because he hasn't gotten the green light as much hitting in front of Tex.

So I don't see any reason to mention his age and decline. I understand that he most likely has reached his potential at his age, but it's not like he's 35 or shown any decline.

That said, I agree with Yoda that I probably won't take either in a re-draft league unless they drop quite a bit. Just too many other SSs with not-too-far off numbers that you can get later.

That's how I've been drafting so far this year. ;-D
