Well then you should have been in one of my mocks
I had second pick and took Wright and everyone said I was stupid.
Its really a no-brainer in the second slot:
-Reyes avg is dropping and his HR numbers are never too high and I like getting a big HR hitter early otherwise I find I fair poorly in that category.
- Hanley is an enticing pick, but with M Cab leaving and him moving to the third spot in the lineup it just makes me feel his steals will decrease which would be the reason Id draft him.
- Pujols, if it weren't for this elbow talk I'd love to take him with the second selection but until thats put to rest I just can't touch him.
In retrospect I would take Wright with the #2 pick and I completely agree with what you said, he gives you 30/30 numbers and a .300+ average and is on a very good hitting team, you really can't pass a consistent player like him up.
