Last-minute pre-draft update thread

Postby duckbillgates » Fri Mar 27, 2009 1:38 pm

I started one of these last year and found it helpful. Basically, it's just a thread for bits of late-developing news that you don't want to draft without, the sort of knowledge that helps you avoid missteps in your draft if you have outdated rankings.

Here are a few:

• David Price will start the season in the minors. Beware of drafting him to start.
• Ditto Matt Weiters. Beware of his high Yahoo O-rank.
• The Rockies (Street/Corpas) and Cubs (Marmol/Gregg) closing situations are up in the air.
• I hear Alex Rodriguez is hurt or something. Anyone know anything about that? ;-)

So what's everyone else got?
"All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others."

How about

Ervin Santana is fine and shouldn't be drafted behind Dice-K

You can throw in there the Sherrill vs Ray also Perez VS Motte both toss ups even though it looks like Motte and Ray will be the main closers. By the way love the avatar I am a huge nails fan.

Mauer's status still up in the air. Twins doubt he'll be ready for opening day.
