Top 15 Hitters

Postby ferris182 » Tue Feb 17, 2004 11:28 am

I am trying to come up w/ my top 15 list, considering that the only Pitcher I will draft in the 1st rd is Prior, and in the 2nd rd I'd take Shilling or maybe Pedro. (Pedro probably won't be there)

Therefore I am making a top 15 hitter list so I can take 2 top hitters w/ my 1st 2 picks and go with a pitcher in rd 3 or 4.

What does everyone think?

1. Arod
2. Pujols
3. Soriano
4. Vlad
5. Beltran
6. Helton
7. Nomar
8. Manny
9. Tejada
10 Sosa
11. Ordonez
12. Sheff
13. Bonds
14. Delgado
15. Thome

Just missed: Renteria / Boone

it's a good list, but these lists can be skewed by lots of factors.

in my own lists, i tend to prioritize position scarcity. for instance, i would rather have renteria than sosa.

some people also put emphasis on speed, power, obp, avg...

but if we're just talking about who's going to knock the crap out of the ball, i think you have to include vernon wells in the top 15 (bumping thome or sosa).

I have Renteria and Wells down a few picks because I think these guys have a likelyhood of slipping down a round, more than the other players on the list.

I agree to add Wells, but I'm not as high on Renteria. Maybe bump Magglio and Sheffield up a bit, and move Tejada and Sosa down. (All assuming 5x5).

I think Miguel and Sammy are going to have a huge year.

Sheff's #s will be good, but he is an injury risk, and Maggs doesn't run anymore. He will steal 5-8 bases.

What do you guys think about Berkman? Played banged up for awhile last year, but still put up respectable #'s
Why did you leave Griff? Why Why Why!
