if you have too IR spots and he's available in the last round, you might think of taking him. I'm from st. louis, and wouldn't touch him with a ten foot pole. I've seen first hand all the crying and whining from him over the years, he would scratch himself off of the starting lineup. Tony didn't even bother asking, he figured if JD scratches his name off, he's hurt again.
these are not the droids your looking for

While I won't dispute that Drew is the Fred Taylor of baseball, he is still a far better option than Mondesi. I can't imagine a league so deep that Mondesi will wind up on someone's team.

He'll definitely be on someone's team in our league. Yes he's a bad guy, and has never lived up to his toolsy hype, but he'll get to bat cleanup on a major league team (well...sorta) and has power, and usually likes to pad his SB's a bit.

I look for Reggie Sander-ish numbers (from last year) out of Mondesi. 30 HR and 20 SB's are attainable w/ any luck, but you'd be surprised to get 20 HR and 60 RBI from Drew.

I know that in ESPN drafts, Drew is going 50, and Mondy about 60th, but I think maybe people are just planning for their IR spot. Mondy will out produce Drew this year, even if Drew gets 350 AB's.

Its not that he's a better player or better guy, its just that he's more interested in milking his stats as much as possible. Definitely not a good guy! :-t

Agreed. There's another thread that's got an article saying that the Braves are going to take it easy on him in spring training due to continuing injury issues.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
