Hafner....mid 2nd round...I see him as a 50 HR threat that isn't getting the respect he deserves.

Peavy, 5th round....I believe he is a 2nd round talent and if he is there in the late 4th early 5th I will take him. He usually isn't though....

Sheets, pick 70 or so....another great value this late, IMO...

Mostly pitching, and yes, all high injury risks...


Hmmm...are you posting your roster, playa? :-b

I hear ya though. High-reward pitchers despite the injury risk can be had in later rounds and sometimes that outweighs what's left in the draft.

Harden. 12th round for a possible Cy Young winner? I'll risk the injuries.

Piazza. Possible 30 HR from a catcher and I can get him in the 11th or 12th round? Plus he will play every day?

Rich Hill. Pretty much gets ignored.

Chris B. Young. I get him consistently around the last round.

Bill Hall. Rediculous power from a SS. Very undervalued.

Delmon. I'm crossing my fingers for a rookie season comprable to Pujols or Miggy Cabrera.

Thome- 7th or 8th round for 40 homers even if he is only Util.

John Patterson- Let the injuries scare you away. He could be an ace.


I dont see how Hill is underrated. If anything he is getting overrated due to his performance in the last month or two of the season. He seems to be going pretty high in Cafe drafts for a 5th starter.



I have gotten Rich Hill pretty damn late. Like around 16 or 17 in 12 team leagues.

Do you really think he will pitch like a 5th starter?

Anyway that was until I told my roommate about him and ever since he's been taking him really early like you mentioned. Like 9th, 10th round. Which to me is too high.

I like Hill as much as most do here at the Cafe but it just seems like he gets picked before other SPs that are better bets. If you can get him late thats great, he just hasnt been going late in the leagues im in.

I don't go into drafts thinking I must get him or anything, but I always end up drafting Trevor Hoffman.

Top guys I gotta have: Ichiro (I have been surprised to see how easily he can be traded for), Derrek Lee (can get him in round 3 or 4), Justin Verlander (anyones guess)

Sleepers: Mike Napoli, Tim Lincecum, Alex Gordon...they could all be studs
