2nd Pick, Round #1

Postby Guest » Thu Feb 12, 2004 1:21 pm

Who do I pick here? I am leaning towards Pujols, but I love Vlad. I also love soriano, but I am more than worried about his project 8th spot in the batting order. Any suggestions.

Everyone will disagree, but I still lean towards Soriano as the #2 pick. Unless your league counts OBP or penalizes for whiffs, in which case Pujols is the choice.

Well, here's my suggeston. Make a trade with the owner of the 4th overall pick and get something extra in return. That way your decision will be make based on which of the Big 4 fall to you at #4, and you've got an upgrade somewhere else.
Maybe like #2 overall pick and your last rounder for the #4 overall pick and his/her #7-10 round pick. This would really help your team if you feel that Vlad, Pujols, and Soriano are too close to call.

I agree that is a great idea.

But lets face it....Its hard not to like Pujols at #2...he carries you all year long and is still yoing enough that his best years are yet to come.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
