#1 pick in minor league draft....Your insight?

Postby whatinthebluehell » Fri Feb 01, 2008 11:57 pm

Ok, I get the number one pick in our inangural minor league draft this year. I have my eye on a couple players, but would really like a player that is going to be the next pick star and makes an immediate impact. Only players that can be drafted are the ones with less than 130 ABs or less than 50 IP. That would qualify a guy like Jacoby Ellsbury, in which i really like.....Give me your top 5 players....

Jay Bruce. You don't need another name.

Bruce, Jay
Longoria, Evan
Buchholz, Clay
Chamberlain, Joba
Kershaw, Clayton

Ellsbury may be top 20, but he is not top 5.

yeah i'd go Bruce or Longoria, i think both will contribute this year and will have nice long futures. I give the edge to Bruce though

Ill agree with the masses and say Bruce or Longoria, with an edge to Bruce. I would only take Longoria if you have a greater need at 3B/CI for some reason. Hope this helps ;-D

I echo everyone else. The only thing is Ellsbury's fantasy value is higher than his real value.

whatinthebluehell -- What minor leaguers are available? if you have a minor league draft every year, I'm assuming Bruce, Longoria, et al, may not be available.
