Does Figgins qualify at 3b? I thought he played only 9 games there last year, and I think Yahoo states a player has to have appeared in 10 games the previous year for positional eligibility.

Rodriguez, Alex
Wright, David
Cabrera, Miguel
Braun, Ryan
Jones, Chipper
Beltre, Adrian
Atkins, Garrett
Lowell, Mike
Figgins, Chone
Zimmerman, Ryan
Ramirez, Aramis

Had to go with 11 here. ARAM is likely to be in the top 5 next year - he's my sleeper

I think people feel like they have to put Braun that high but how many are actually comfortable picking him there?

I almost put Ramirez ahead of him. I definitely wouldn't take Braun where he's currently projected to be taken. I think it would be safer to wait a couple more rounds and take one of the middle tiered guys if you miss out on Rodriguez, Wright, or Cabrera.

I'd easily take him over Lowell, Chipper (health is as much a risk as brauns future), Beltre, Zimmerman. I'm not so sure I'd take Braun over Atkins though. I would not take him over ARam. I can make a strong case for him as the #5 3B and he is a no brainer at #7 after ARam, Figgins, Atkins.

I'd be comfortable taking Braun ahead of ARam and Atkins but I wouldn't be comfortable taking him in the 2nd round. In other words I likely won't get Braun and I may end up with ARam or Atkins if either falls into the 4th round.

Lowell too high? :-b Might be, but I don't see why he can't duplicate what he did last year, possibly even better those numbers with a solidified top of the order and Manny and Papi healthy.
