Vernon Wells should make his way on this list as well...

Ellsbury, and agree that Wells is the next guy to be added to the list.

I went Mags. I just hate the low HR, low RBI OF (Ellsbury) this early. Just think you're paying too much to put yourself in a big hole in those two cats. I'd take Dunn next and then probably Ellsbury.

By the same token, Ordonez doesn't offer much power-wise that you can't get in later rounds from other OF further down. After Reyes, I don't think there's anyone but Ellsbury capable of stealing 50 bases without being a total detriment in BA.

Depends oh how you're defining "power". He'll only give you mid-20s in HRs but he's a lock for 100+ RBI. There's not many players left that can give you that and the ones that do won't hit .300 for you (Dunn, etc).

Again my big problem is having that HUGE deficiency in HR and RBI from everyone else's #2OF. IMO its too hard to make that up. I like to get my SBs from MI, where the hit you take in HR and RBI from the average opponents MI is much smaller, or from a collection of 20-10 SB guys instead of one 40+ SB guy. Every year I look at different draft scenarios and taking an early low-HR, low-RBI OF just always ends up projecting lower than a team of balanced hitters or a 2B or SS as my SB specialist. Or even looking for "cheap steals" late as a backup to supplement my team.
