I drafted Markakis as the 11th pick of rd. 5 in a 12 teamer. I was pretty happy, Got Holliday, Fielder, Berkman, Aram before him.

He will outearn all three of those players, and is going between 5 and 14 picks ahead of them. In Round 4, I think he provides great value.

yeah i agree. i dont know why torii hunter is mentioned with the other guys ever, considering how inconsistent his sb have been and the potential for him to put up a .270ish avg.

Hunter is one o the quietest consistent OF in all of fantasy baseball. I never own him, somehow, but if you look at his yearly stats, he can pretty much promise you .270, 25-30 HR, 90-100 RBI, 80-90 R, and 15-20 SB. Somehow I end up never owning the guy, but you can generally expect almost all of his 5x5s to fall in those ranges, year by year. People like him moving to the AL, etc. etc. etc., alo.

yeah for hunter, you're paying for track record and security. and the word is that angels will run him more. markakis, pence, and even byrnes can easily put up better numbers but they don't have the track record yet. that said, i have hunter ranked about 15 spots below pence, the lowest of the 3.

Tejada is gone but you added Jones and Luke Scott. It's pretty much the same, with potential to be better if the young guys develop throughout the year.


It is better than last year. Scott and Jones are both going to be upgrades and Tejada just wasn't that good last year. I don't see his R/RBI changing much unless Roberts gets traded.
