I would take Mcann over Crawford only because its hard to find a catcher that can put up those numbers year after year while crawford had a down year last year and there are similar player that can get you bags.

BUT i just can't come to dropping either McCann or Crawford, so which would you personally drop first? I know it would be sweet to have the comboed power of Tex/Braun and the speed of Roberts/Crawford, but then i look at it that if i keep McCann rather then Crawford i would have C, 1B, 2B, 1 OF slot covered, leaving me just to cover SS, 3B, 2 OF slots in the first couple rounds cuz this league just added in another starting spot, an IF slot... so we now start C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, IF, OF, OF, OF, Util, change any minds now?
And the only other thing im also worried about is if i throw back McCann i have to look for a C in a thin position cuz i need to keep a rookie, but im not 100% comfortable depending on Sandoval to carry the load for me at C (if he even carries the elegibility for the position this year...
make sure pablo has C elig. this year (which he should), and drop mccann to keep crawford.
Yeah, I can see your point about McCann. I think they're pretty much a wash really. Obvioulsy you have a very solid start in both AVG. and HR's so I think you could get by letting McCann go to take a very solid SB guy in Crawford. I really don't think you can go wrong with either of those guys so take the one you feel most comfortable with. I'd go:
Tex Roberts Braun Crawford Halladay Hamels Sandoval

The key to selling real estate is "location, location, location the same way the key to winning in fantasy baseball is offense, offense, offense. Those are just the facts. Offense wins championships in fantasy baseball. Also, it is 10x easier to find a free agent stud pitcher on the waiver wire than it is to find a free agent stud hitter. Bottom line, I would go with 7 hitters who play everyday & pile up stats for you & then draft a pitching staff solid enough to hold their own in the pitching categories.
I will gladly take Halladay ($37) earned last year, to Dunns ($20), and let you have your location. Value and balance wins championships.
