Took him at 3.05 in a 14 team league (33rd overall) and I feel that's about right...

Sevon wrote:I'm seeing 25/30 from Kemp this year assuming he runs just as much at the end of the lineup. And from the looks of Spring Training, Torre is determined to bat Kemp in the 7 hole. Now, if your expecting him to move up the order, you're walking that thin line of predicting injuries in order for a player to attain his projections. Because if he does indeed bat in the 7 hole as Torre has planned, his Runs and RBIs are not going to be as great as people are expecting. And it could also shave off some of his other numbers if his plate appearances fall a great deal from last years standards.

With all this being said, I do like Kemp a great deal. I just think he's going a bit too high.


By the same token, there's also precedent to say that Torre won't bat Kemp 7th all year. Like I said, Kemp can still be shuffled from time to time to the point he can reasonably get in 90 runs and 80-90 RBI. Hudson is also coming off a year removed from a wrist injury and so, he's no shoo-in to bat 2nd if he struggles early. Given the draft crop around the 3rd or 4th round, Kemp's skill set is good enough to warrant that high of a pick.

i got Kemp pick 31 overall.
id like to see Kemp up to the 5th spot behind Manny. one reason i read Torre could want Loney batting 5th behind Manny is the LH(Ethier)/ RH(Manny)/ LH(Loney/ ..but then after that you have all RH bats in Kemp/Martin/Blake. it would be better to go LH/RH/RH/LH/RH/RH and have Kemp at 5 ahead of Loney.
i forget where i read it, but apparently Don Mattingly (Dodgers hitting coach) thinks Kemp can break out this season. if he does the Dodgers are going to move him out of the 6 hole.

i dont see the reason so many people love Martin. the only reason he gets so much love is because hes a catcher who can steal. if he was playing at another position he would be borderline waiver wire guy. one of these seasons he is going to steal less than 10 and become alot less valuable.

Is it good you got him in teh 7th round or is it bad that you also passed on him in the 5th and 6th rounds...? :-?

8-o , I don't pay for (2nd round) Beltran/Soriano numbers and end up with Kemp.


You are also paying for last year's numbers. I'll go with this year. Thanks. :-)


So based on this yrs numbers, what's the rest of your roster look like.


Edit: Sorry 'bout the thread hijack, but I'm curious. ;-)


I'll send a PM to you.
