I'm in a pickle, dag nabbit.


wow! that will shake up a league. means Prior is 4+, while Sorr is 4+, with 2, if not 3 negatives.

looking over FPCT at ESPN, seems like Bonds could help you here, and be a legitimate #3 pick...Bret Boone too.

Well, walks isn't a factor, so I wouldn't take bonds that early. Boone I wouldn't take #3 either, although that .990 FPCT excites me. I might trade for him if he has a slow start.

well, no, but it seem you would be looking for normal great hitting, plus good FPCT and low K.

ergo, that leaves you with Bonds, Helton, Boone, then Renteria.
Sheff has a really low K rate, but his FPCT I'm sure would hurt.

What about Prior? Should I go with him #3?

I think I said above that Prior warranted strong cnsideration.
PM 186.2 14-4 0 2.22 206 47
Prior 211.1 18-6 0 2.43 245 50

then again...

Try to trade your 3rd and 24th picks for the 6th and 21st.

If that doesn't work, I would take Soriano.

Just to play devils advocate, Since FPCT is somewhat of an accumlative stat, as far as Roto goes, wouldn't that make Todd Helton just a 'monster' in that category? I mean with all his chances?
