Draft Coming up soon...Where do I take Arod?

Postby soxfan57 » Fri Mar 06, 2009 8:35 pm

With the current news on him, where should I take him? 5th-10th? 10th-15th? 15th-20th? 20th-25th?


Thanks

If I was going to draft tonight, knowing everything that I know now (which is basically what's been on ESPN and the Cafe), I would draft him in the second round (I guess first round if I was the last pick :-b ). I would not feel right taking him as my first overall pick.
Of course, this could change if my draft was tomorrow or the next day or whatever.

Remember Pujols last year? Same dilemma.

I think I'll pass on him unless he's still around in the 3rd rd. I think if he lasts the whole year he'll only play about 130 games

Depends on how the news on his injury updates, but I'd say anyone who took him before the 3rd round now would be a fool. You can still get top-quality talent in the 2nd round; I wouldn't burn that value on someone who might miss half or more of this season, or try to gimp through before doing so.

Really, I don't think I'd feel comfortable taking him before the 4th.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
