Draft Prior #2 overall

try to trade your pick to #3, but if not, i think that prior is still improving, he could lower his pitch count, learn how to do that and get more innings, but i think that pujols is maxed out, he wont get much better.

Thanks for the advice...I also love Pujols, I just value pitching much more in today's game.

I might be able to get the guy at #6 to trade with me...I don't know if Prior will stick around that long...

If you are set on taking Prior...this is what I would do...most drafts have him going between 6-8....but honestly, I would rather have Pujols than Prior.... :-)

My opinion, and I know a lot of people would disagree, but NEVER take a pitcher in the first round. Injuries are much more common from pitchers and it greatly increases the chance of blowing your first round pick when you take one. Pujols is better than the dropoff after him, he's tough and plays through small injuries, and he's consistent as hell and getting better(not to mention multiple position eligibility).

If you really want Prior, draft Pujols and then offer to trade him for Prior and another position player. If I were the owner, I'd jump at that trade offer.
It's time to roll the dice.

I'd take Pujols two as well, but I don't think it's crazy to take Prior either. He's really, really, close to being the best in baseball regardless of position. That's just my opinion though.

I agree with Erboes. I probably take Pujols there, but it certainly isn't crazy to think about Prior at that spot. Even a slight faltering by Rodriguez and Pujols and he is the #1 player in fantasy baseball....!

OK now how about this dilemma...If I get the 4, and say it goes Arod Pujols Sori 1-2-3...do I take Prior or Vlad?? Only reason why not Vlad is his back, but I dont think its a problem.

I got the 3rd pick in the Cafe Challenge and have decided to take Prior there. I thought long and hard between him and Guerrero, but I decided to go with Prior and load up on OF's in the 3-5 rounds. Great value there in Berkman, Abreu, Crawford, Green, C. Jones. I could live with any of those three guys. Then, of course, L. Walker later in the draft.

If you're gonna drop down to take Prior, then do that. If you're still not gonna take Prior, then just stay where you are and take Pujols. FYI.......SP is very deep this year.
