Who will be worth an 11th round pick next year?

Postby markj11 » Thu Apr 05, 2007 9:37 am

My money keeper league allows me to keep one rookie per year for an 11th round pick. This year I kept Verlander. I missed out on the top rookies that are starting this year b/c they went too early in the draft for me. My league also lets you anounce a guy you want before they hit the waiver wire, which rewards guys that do their research. So my question is who should I be targeting this year. Who will help the most this year and also be worth an 11th round pick next year. One guy in my league had two 11th round picks and got to keep Hanley and Papelbon.

Scott Thorman could break out.

Chris B. Young IMO is the obvious choice.

Thanks, Young was one of those that got drafted. I'll keep my eye on Thorman.

From espn.com: Two scouts who followed the Braves this spring believe their biggest potential problem could be first base. "I'm not a Scott Thorman [fan]," one scout says. "Too many holes in his swing. He's struggled at every level he's played on, at least initially. And I think he's going to struggle this year. He's going to run into some home runs against right-handed pitching because he's very strong. But he's very, very vulnerable against good left-handed pitching."

Yeah, I have MS Braves season tickets and he never really looked that impressive to me.

Adam LaRoche didn't look too impressive to me either.

Thorman is still very raw for a major leaguer, but he has huge power potential. I can really see him doing the Adam LaRoche jump of last year next year.

I like the Pence pick a lot. I honestly don't see Gallardo, Linecum and Adam Miller making enough impact this year to really make a difference.
