Which Pitchers are bargains in the second round, if any ?

Postby titanut » Thu Feb 26, 2004 10:41 pm

The top 5 seem to be Prior, Pedro, RJ, Schilling and Halladay.
Personally, I'm staying away from RJ and Schilling due to age
and recent injuries. Any of the other 3 are no brainers in the
3rd round, what about the second ? I'm leaning to a draft strategy
of batters only for the first 3 rounds, but if these 3 are available
in the second round should I grab one? Again, 3rd round is a no
brainer.

Prior is a no-brainer in the first round.

Would you take Prior over Vlad, Helton or Beltran, or whoever is
left after Arod, Pujols and Soriano ? I won't.

I think Prior is a bargin anywhere after ARod, Pujols, Soriano, Vlad, and Beltran. So mid First. If you get him in the Second Round, its the Steal of the Draft

Pedro, Schilling are no-brainers in the second round

Halladay and Wood I would think about in the second, but it depends on where in the 2nd round you are and who is left and stuff like that.

RJ, I am staying away from but if he was available in the 4th I might take him.

I'd take Helton before Prior too.

Was just gonna say that about Helton.... he rounds out the top 6 bats I'd take before Prior.

And in the 2nd, I'd take Sheff/Maggs/Manny/Nomar type hitter before touching any other SP

If Prior falls to the second round you are really lucky or your league sucks (most likely the latter). I would take Prior in the first round if the top 7 hitters (in any order) are gone.
Let's play two.

Here's my opinion:

Prior--good pick between 5-10

Pedro/Schilling--I'd take Pedro 1st but those guys should be taken by midway throught he second round.

Halladay--End of 2nd round pick.

Big Unit--I would not even consider taking him in the second round. IMO Schmidt, Vasquez, Mussina, and Wood are all significantly better picks (but I'd wait till the third round for those guys.)

I drafted Prior with the #6 pick, which I think is pretty good. Also I drafted Josh Beckett in the 5th round which some would consider a steal and others would consider a terrible pick.

Javier Vazquez would be a good 2nd round pickup. His ERA and Strikeouts were better than Halladay's last year.
