Even those awesome Cafe rankings are a bit out-of-date now, so a thread that the less-involved manager can check to avoid embarrassing draft mistakes might be nice.
So, I'll start: Jarrod Saltalamacchia is likely to start the season in AAA, so avoid drafting him as your starter.
aye good idea.Josh Fields
is not draftable as a regular player. The Crede situation is too unknown to draft Fields as anything more than a flyer.
People have been jumping on Rickie Weeks
in like the 8th round expecting a 30-30 or 25-25 season from him. He has been stinking in ST strikeout wise and has just sprained his hand or something. Temper your expectations and maybe even pass over him for someone else. In my opinion, draft Kinsler instead for sure.
Don't sleep on Lastings Milledge
, expecting to grab him in the last two rounds. If you want him, grab him by round 15-16.Akinori Iwamura
has 3B eligibility but will have 2B eligibility in no time. His stats should be more than useful there. If you're stuck late w/o a 2bman, grab him.
