Edwin Jackson - A Diamond in the rough ????

I'd take Penny, then Sheets. Edwin will probably go undrafted.

Is that seriously all that is available? H Ramirez? Peavy? Myers? Meche? Harden?

Is this kid the real deal or will he be sent down at the first sign of trouble.


well if that is the case, you can probably pick up Oliver Perez from the waiver wire instaed of drafting Jackson too early. ..
I'd lay 20.00 that Oliver has more K's than Edwin come September,

anybody?

I've taken Edwin late in every draft. I think he has tremendous upside compared to what is left in the 20th round

I think part of it depends on whether you're in a keeper league. If you are, taking him in the final round is pretty sound logic.

I saw something this morning that suggests LA coaches might take their time and that he might need a little more seasoning. So it goes.

He's lookin good against the Mets today...9 up, 9 down...not sure how many k's, but some of his pitches look just great, while others you can see are off a bit still. Either way, he's lookin pretty good early in ST, FWIW...which isn't worth much of course, but hey :-)

Oliver Perez may get more K's but he...well he just plain isn't good.
It's like I've died and gone to heaven......but then they realized that it wasn't my time, so they sent me to a brewery.

I'm in a keeper league and I've got him at $8. I can lock him up for up to 7 years. Should I? Any opinions?
