So in a pts league (Sandbox) do you guys think he will be more or less valuable than Ichiro?

From what I remember with points leagues, Berkman will dominate Ichiro. If I'm not mistaken, points leagues are dominated by power hitters (a huge 6 pts for a solo hr), while Ichiro will only get u 2 or 3 pts per SB. Considering Berkman's HR total should be around Ichiro's SB total, Berkman gets you at least twice as many points. Plus BA does you nothing in pts leagues, which is one of Ichiro's strenghts.

Not sure what the scoring looks like, but Ichiro will end up with more total hits than Berkman plus the steals and runs scored. With that said, I'd lean toward Berkman and his home runs and rbi. It all depends on the scoring system though. ;-)

Umm, MM, in your league, you already have three outfielders, yet catcher and second open. I'd grab Posada before either Ichiro or Berkman, in my humble opinion.
I'm back. Sorta.

Transmo,

Posada and Blalock are both on my radar to pick up early. I might even be able to add a solid 1b alla Sexson/Palmiero but I need to think about the pitching too.

Did you get my PM? I suggested something along the lines of Posada/Foulke/Millwood/Blaylock.

Yes,

Thanks for the PM. That will definitely be very helpful. I'm thinking along the lines of Blalock/Posada/Millwood. Foulke will probably be available after everyone has their first picks which is when my 4th pick will come up. You have to love trades to pick up extra picks early :)

you could probably get Blalock in the 4th round, nobodys going to take him, and I bet Posada will be gone unless you take him first

This is in a 10 team keeper league with 7 keepers. Posada and Blalock with go in the 1st and at latest the 2nd round.
