i just got him in the 2nd year of a 5 year keeper for Bay and Hardy. He counts as a 25th rder. Needless to say im pretty happy and look forward to him developing into a early/mid 1st rd pick at the price of a 25th rounder.
unless jose reyes proves that his power surge last year was not a fluke, he's constantly going to be slightly overrated in my opinion. (not because he sucks, but because people are overvaluing him like people always overvalue crawford.)
i like hanley a lot, and i do think he'll be a first rounder for years to come.
I was definitely on the Hanley=Reyes Bandwagon this preseason and it looks like I was right so far. Looks like it might even be shifting towards Hanley>Reyes with the way some people are talking about him.
I was worried I reached for him in the 3rd round of my dynasty league draft, but I'm very glad I did now.
