Good point. With Utley rated 21 on Yahoo there's a half decent chance he'll fall to the 2nd. :-?


this is my thinking as well.... Utley is still 21 on Yahoo and I draft Monday at spot #8

Another vote for Utley and not to be insulting but I agree that it is not even close.

In all the mocks I've done and seen the past week Utley has been gone by pick 15. Seems like the days of him falling to the late 2nd are gone. Gonna grab him 8th and hope for Beltran or Berkman in the 2nd.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Berkman is due to regress IMO- horrible 2nd half last year

I've been leaning towards Utley as the news of his rehab gets better and better. Kinsler usually won't drop until the the mid 2nd round and there's a big drop off in 2B after they're off the board. I don't like grabbing Howard that early because you spend the rest of the draft trying to make up the AVG. I'm not a believer in Hamilton after he slumped in the 2nd half last year. The Texas heat really seemed to drain him in the summer. Teix is solid but I would keep comfortable grabbing a 1B later on.

Thoughts?


Take Utley and then take Morneau for the next pick would be my strategy.
