I'm not too keen on Kearns having a starting spot in your OF in a 12-teamer. I'd see if I could swap him to someone who's high on him, possibly.

Sheesh. Markakis or Bradley or Huff. I'd probably go Markakis for now but keep an eye on the other two. There's a sleeper article on Bradley here:

http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/2007/sleepers_bradley.php

He hit a healthy .300/.386/.482 with 11 HR, 44 RBIs, and 8 SB after the All-Star break (even with an August where he batted .223/.330/.394).


Could be quite a pick up or a total bust. I'd keep an eye on him and Huff though. ;-D

first round went:

Pujols
Soriano
Ortiz
Wright
Crawford
Santana
Utley
ARod
Beltran
Reyes
Vlad
R Howard

I am not sure if these guys know what they are doing or not yet. I tend to think Howard is not a complete fluke since is second half numbers from 05 show similiar production...but obviously alot of these guys think he is overrated. I am very surprised Wright went so high because there are alot of good third basemen.

I would definitely start Thomas over Mora. Markakis would be a big upgrade over kearns who will play 82 games in Washington. Plus last year he was whinning about being traded there. Even Giles will give you a decent average and they have a pretty good lineup around him in SD.
