That might win the award for worst draft pick of 2008.


I drafted him in Round 12 in one league, while picking him up off the WW in another league.

Given that he's 2B/SS/3B in Yahoo!, this guy can help you out big time with his statline. I like him for 15HR 20SB

Yeah that's where I see him at as well, not to mention a .300+ ba, his runs scored, and a decent # of RBI.
His spot in the order right before Chipper and Teix is very nice.

Since you probably won't get good value for him, I'd keep Escobar and trade one of the other two, bigtime player for bigtime player. What I've found in trading, is a lot of people won't always recognize the value of a player without a big name, and therefore won't be willing to give up good enough value. Since you know Escobar is good, you may have to end up trading one of the other guys with the big name, in order to maximize the value in grabbing Escobar wherever you did.

In CBS leagues he was ranked pretty high and with his eligibility he went sooner then I hoped in both leagues. He and McLouth were the 2 players I wanted to get in all leagues and I was extremely disappointed I did not score Escobar in any. I did get McLouth in both leagues but he was barely ranked so I knew I could wait on him.
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)

Can you explain where this power is coming from? I am not trying to be a jerk, I just don't understand the rationale for projecting 15 HR given his career MLB/Minors numbers. Am I missing something?

He hit 5 in about 300 ABs last year, so I double that and add 5 because I think he will improve to that level. He had a great spring and he's already got regular season HR under his belt. Please believe he'll hit 14 more!

escobar could be a very solid 15-15 300 hitter who is eligible at 2b/ss/3b. Considering where he was drafted you really can't go wrong.
