Where is Alexei drafted next year?

I actually think he'll fall further than he should. He will be SS eligible next year and is on pace for a 20+/15/.300+ season.....

Unless he gets some press time, he'll fall between 110-130 in most leagues. I'm not complaining, I'll be there to draft him 3 rounds after people draft Pedroia. :-) I like to think of him as Ryan Theriot, another underappreciated MI, except with more power and less speed/BA.

I'm considering keeping him in my 5-keeper league.... He'd just cost a 30th rounder since I grabbed him as a FA, but considering where he'll probably fall in next years draft, I think I might as well keep somebody else and draft him in a round that he'll outperform ;-D

I've heard that during spring training from the local guys. Other than the 35+ home runs Soriano was putting up, I don't think it's far fetched.
I am biased though, so I could be way off base. :-D

I'll be looking to grab him in round 9 or 10...might be a reaching by a round or two, but I think he'll provide great value next year and multi=position eligibility

I'm looking at him to fill the role of multiple positions stud I hoped Yuniel Escobar would have filled this season :~(

Only troubling issue is the 10 walks in 361 at bats, but I guess you don't need plate discipline if you are hitting everything in sight.
