a few posts aside, great thread.

I love Markakis this year, and was not aware of Hart's rising star. Tell me what round to target these two in a 10-teamer. TIA.

I got Hart in the 8th of my 10-teamer but I think I got lucky. If you really want him, you're probably going to have to look at him in the 6th, maybe 5th.

Holliday went with the 13th pick of round 1, yes round 1. He was an early 2nd round pick on my draft board. This was a no brainer 2nd round with upside guy so if he fell to round 10 in your league it is full of terrible players.

Hanley went with pick #27 (to me).

Fielder was pick #58 (to me), I had him as a 3rd round pick on my draft board but I waited on him until the 5th because of ADP.

B.J. Upton went in the 16th round, he probably was the biggest value after Fielder, nobody was sure if he would start full time or not.

Umm, may I ask who you are targeting this year? O:-)

maybe loewen, but not fukudome. i see fukudome as a possible kaz matsui type bust and i think he will keep slipping down in the line-up although he might start out in a good spot.

has anyone realized that fukudome is a really funny name if you split it up? fuk-u, do-me? :-X

Borowski caves in super early, Betancourt takes over and never looks back with a 40+ Save, 2.00 ERA, 1.10 Whip, 75 K type year..

I also want to put in Josh Hamilton, you get him 550 AB's and a healthy year and I think fireworks happen.. .295 Ave, 40 HR's, 115 RBI, 16 SB's, 100 Runs?

I have a money draft coming up next week, not sharing 'my guys' with anyone until after that, heh.

To be fair I wasn't a huge Hanley Ramirez guy but I wanted SB with that pick and he was there. The player most like Hanley in this years draft is B.J. Upton though. A guy who seemed to overproduce from a power standpoint that I think is a year away from really breaking out but could do it a year earlier than I expect. I'd draft him in the late 2nd round if he was there and hope to get another Hanley.

Loewen has been injured ONCE in his entire pro career. He pitched 93 innings in A/A+, then 142 the next year, then 183 the year after that.

I WISH for the day when I don't have to remind people that you MUST control for age and level of play before comparing player performances.

Let's take a look at Loewen and Cabrera.
At age 20 Adam Loewen was pitching in A/A+ ball. His BB/9 was 6.48.
At age 20 Daniel Cabrera was still in Rookie ball. His BB/9 was 8.56

At age 21 Adam Loewen was in A+ ball. His BB/9 was 5.95
At age 21 Daniel Cabrera (finally) proved he could get rookie ball hitters out. His BB/9, 3 levels below where Loewen was, was 3.75

At age 22 Adam Loewen pitched in AA/AAA and MLB. In the minors his BB/9 was 3.67; in the majors it was 4.95
At age 22, Daniel Cabrera was in A ball posting a BB/9 of 5.62.

There's simply no comparison between these two. Loewen is no Maddux when it comes to control, but he's as far above Cabrera as Maddux is above him.

Pitcher A is Loewen's performance thus far.
Pitcher B is Erik Bedard's total performance the year before he broke out.
