Well most people play in 12 team leagues. Also he is still going well after 100+ which makes him a decent pick.

Yeah I missed that my bad. Either way, I think he is a decent gamble where he is going currenlty after 100+ players are off the board.

I'm one of those guys that reached on him in a recent draft, even though I don't really consider it a reach since I feel he'll pretty easily out-perform his draft position. I took him at 102. I wasn't going to be picking again until 119 and that was the only way I could guarantee that he'd be one my team. He actually went 119 in a draft I did the day before. I probably could have waited, but I didn't really see any players left that I would be extremely dissappointed not having on my team. The players drafted between my pick of Hamilton and my next pick were:

Miguel Tejada
Roy Halladay
John Smoltz
Ben Sheets
Michael Young
Alex Gordon
José Valverde
Brad Hawpe
Francisco Cordero
Rickie Weeks
Shane Victorino
Nick Swisher
Todd Helton
Paul Konerko
Johnny Damon
Billy Wagner

I'm still pretty content with my decision, I think Hamilton has the highest upside of the players listed there for 2008 along with Weeks. But I think Weeks
probably has a much lower floor.

If I had him on any teams, I would definitely be seeing how the rest of my league was valuing him, and the possibility of flipping him in a 2-for-1 for a more proven producer who I'd be more confident in. ;-D

yea, it's the ultimate sell high if you trade away hammy at this point. until he starts mashing homers at chris shelton's april 06 rate, his value can't be any higher. this was the thread on my trade btw: viewtopic.php?t=328805.

I wouldn't.

I can see Joshy as a 1st round pick next year. he's got that kind of upside.

Believe the HYPE.
