7th Round Draft Advice

People really like to draft best-availiable, eh? He already has Helton and 2 outfielders, I wouldn't go Nevin (and more so, Sweeney). But that's just me.

I will take some heat, but i would take Berroa. A ss that earns mid 20's and is growing. I would take Ramirez, Palmeiro, or Sweeney next. Nevin isn't a option imo.

My biggest problem with the Berroa option is that he is not that much better statistically right now than Jimmy Rollins (yeah I know, he blows in fantasy)...

The numbers though:

Berroa
.288 17/73 92 R 21 SB

Rollins:
.263 8/62 85 R 20 SB

Rollins is the last or next to last starting SS likely to go in a 12 team mixed-league draft, which means he is late round trash. Berroa certainly could improve on his numbers, but he could also have a sophomore tailoff to a certain degree or stay the same. However it breaks for Berroa, from a draft strategy point of view I rather take Sweeney off the board right now and live with either Berroa a lot later or Rollins towards the end rounds of the draft.

I wouldn't call Rollins trash. He's only 25 (14 months older than Berroa exactly) and he's got some very nice speed.

I can understand you not wanting to chance Berroa now. I do disagree on him and Rollins. rollins earned $14, angel $23, big difference. Sweeney is solid, and really a safe pick.

But he has Helton. :-?

Grab your closer now. You'll be sorry if you miss out.

As the 11th or 12 ranked SS in a 12 team mixed league, he pretty much is for fantasy purposes. Depending on whether you like Guzman better or no, he likely goes in the mid 130-160 overall range. He would go a lot lower if it were not for Guzman.

I'd take castillio and then a closer if it was me. Looking at your roster, you have some good power, but not much speed. I think castillio gives you a balanced team and a position thats difficult to fill

Sweeney is solid, and really a safe pick.


Sweeney I would take here because he has the potential to put up the best numbers of that group. But he is not exactly a safe pick. IF were injured all the time, he wouldn't be around still in that draft

plus hes already got helton. Why take a second? IMO grab a guy to get you some more steals at a rare position (castillio)

or a closer (Izzy IMO)
