Best Draft pick this year?

Postby RJ24VC15 » Thu Mar 13, 2008 9:26 pm

Where do you like to pick this year?

Usually I like to pick late in the draft, but I'd really like to get a top flight 2B, 3B, SS with my first round pick.

What would everyone prefer if you could choose your spot.

I don't feel any spot is really "bad." As much as i like Holliday, I don't want to take an OF first. But he's my preranked #5. Ahead of Miggy. If it gets to my pick and the other four are off the board I'll have to take him. I personally would love to go Rollins at 9 or 10 and grab Braun on my next pick if it ends up that way. Then SS & 3B are shored up early and they're relatively weak positions.

4-6th looks pretty good to me. I love the thought of being able to pick home town player, MCab, but unless I have an early pick he won't be there.

If it suits your style, I like the middle picks. Anything around 6 allows you to get a top tier guy and still have a good shot at some solid names on the way back (Tex, Carlos Lee, Peavy etc). Although, there is something to be said for the book-end picks. I always love to get back-to-back picks and take 2 catchers, 2 closers, 2 starters etc in one go. It can sometimes start a run and get other owners off their game. Otherwise, it's a nice way to do some "one stop shopping"
