Anyone drafting Griffey?

Postby Mr. Smithers » Mon Feb 23, 2004 7:55 pm

We all know there is always that one guy willing to take a chance with him. Last year I took him in the Ninth, I know I was that guy.
Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer.

I'd take him, but only in the last couple of rounds - he's still pretty good on the rare occasions he's healthy.

I would only take him in the last round or two.....but I think somebody else will take the chance on him before that.... :-o

agreed - he's a last rounder to me. I bet whoever drafts him in my league will have the nice red DL next to him in no time.

I wouldn't even think about taking him before the 15th or so round.

I am in a 14 team keeper and we do a slow offline draft in that league he went in the 9th.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I will hold off till about the 18th round. I'd be surprised if he was still on the board at that time, but I'm not taking him any earlier.
