Rafael Furcal: Where is he now going in drafts?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

I had the unique experience of drafting one week prior to his injury and one week after. The week prior, I was the one who took him round 4. A week after, he only slipped to round 5. To be honest, this injury doesn't look as serious as anticipated and draft wise, it shouldn't account for too much of a drop.

He was taken round 6 pick 3 (63) in my live home draft on Saturday night.

I'd take him in the early 50's. I'm not too worried about this injury.

I got him in the 8th round (73rd overall) in my 10 team 5x5 H2H league, before he got his injury. I'm not worried too much about time he might miss, but it will hurt if he loses some SBs to this injury.

We're discussing the position that Furcal should be drafted. It's all on topic.

See, this is what I was getting at. You just drafted this weekend (post injury) and got him in the 8th round. However, the poster below you did two drafts; one pre-injury and one post-injury. He went in rounds 4 and then 5 respectivley.

I guess there really will be no consistency to this and if he's a guy you want on your squad, it looks like you are going to have to determine where you feel his value lies as opposed to what I had hoped that he would drop and his value staring you in the face would be too much to pass up.

Furcal gets no respect. He is as consistent as they come and is only 29. I think he is a top 5 SS and well worth a top 40 pick. He has good power and speed.

Also, his injury might slow him down for a little bit but I don't see it being a problem.
