I would say Sosa. OF is deep, but SS is becoming a deeper fantasy position which makes Jeter a little less valuable. Jeter will go much later in drafts than will Sosa.
I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. -Crash Davis

This is pretty interesting, to me anyways.

Not to bash your pick at all Mookie, that's not my point. I personally have no problem with it.

Sosa's taken a pretty good hit on this board the last couple weeks and I'm curious to see just how low on the comparison scale some people have him. Jeter's pretty close I'd imagine and you won't get an argument from me there but I'm curious what other, lower ranked position players Sosa is now compared to by some.

:-? :-? :-?

Oh how the mighty have fallen !+)

I kinda think of Sosa as a slower Bobby Kielty.

Any predictions as to what sort of numbers Sosa will be putting up this year?

literally, sosa smashes jeter in a fit of roid rage.

sure jeter might be a higher ranked shortstop than sosa is a higher ranked OF, but sosa wins by leaps and bounds.

when jeter hits 40+ HRs or drives in 120+ give me a call

In a points based league I might take Sosa - but in 5x5 I think it has to be Jeter. Jeter does better in sb, avg. and runs, Sosa in hr and rbi. When you factor in position scarcity, Jeter wins going away. i do not believe that ss is as deep as people are saying. I also think that Jeter is going to have a great year and is currently undervalued (at least by people in the cafe).

There are plenty of Outfielders with higher upside than Sosa. Sosa does have the adv. of being a very safe hr and rbi choice but he is not going to surprise you in any cat.
