Early MDP = 63

That's the 6th round in standard 12-team leagues. 8-o

I guess that there is a chance that he will improve but it's just way too much risk to take him so early IMO.

Yea he just went 49th in a Cafe-sponsored slow mock on Couchmanagers. I like him, but that's just too early. Too many questions.

I like him a lot as well but too early for me.

Don't forget that Ramirez was a part-timer at the beginning of the year last year and then spent all except 72 of his ABs in the 6-9 slots. If he starts the full season and bats #2, you can count on 625-650 ABs, which provides a 30-35% increase in his counting numbers. Based on 625 ABs, AxRam would have had a 85/27/100/17/.290 line. Even if you think his numbers will drop by 10 percent, you are talking 76/24/90/15/.271, which is damn good. If he bats near the top of the order, his run and rabi numbers will be switched (higher runs, lower RBIs), but still about the same total R+RBI projected. I'd expect fewer SBs, simply because he has not shown a good rate and I think they'll limit his attempts.

Unless he gets hurt, though, I'd expect 85-95 runs, 20-25 HRs, 70-80 RBIs, 5-10 SBs, and a .275-285 average.

He has a lot more speed than power, and if he was allowed to run according, he'd have over 40 SB.

Toss in that he's eligible at 2b/ss/of in a lot of leagues, and a case could be made for him as early as the 6th round for me.
