Unless your already past round 8 I would go with the sure thing in Berkman. If you already have a rounded OF then maybe gamble on Huff haveing more upside...........but at his best how much do you really think Huff can out produce Berkman?

I would take Berkman. I expect big things from that Astros lineup this year, and I think Berkman's season last year was an abberation.

Look at his 02 numbers compared to last year, I bet he will at least split the difference, and that amounts to

110 runs, 36 HRs, 105 RBI 290 BA. kind of a hunch call, but I trust my gut on this one. Huff is good, but Berkman has already had an MVP type season.

while I have Berkman just ahead of Huff on my rankings, the simple fact that Huff qualifies at 1B as well as OF led to me drafting him even with Berkman on the table.

I'd go with Huff. Hitting at 3 compared to Berkman at 5 should again result in better numbers overall. Average in particular.

Berkmans potential to hit 5 or so more HR's is not enough to swing it in his favour.

Huff is a great player. The greatest to ever grace the great lineup of the great Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Great. I'm not biased, either.

I am a HUGE Aubrey Huff fan! But you guys are kidding yourselves if you think he is worth more than Berkman. They are not in the same league (no pun intended :-D).

Keeper
Berkman is only a year older than Huff. Lets compare their numbers when they were both 26 (2002 for Berkman and 2003 for Huff), and let them tell the keeper story.

Berkman: 42 Hr, 106 Runs, 128 RBIs, 8 sb and a .292 BA

Huff: 34 Hr (-8), 91 Runs (-15), 107 RBIs ( -21), 2 sb (-6) and a .311 BA (+0.19)

Yearly
Berkman was an elite outfielder in an "off" year. He was better than Huff too. How could Huff have more value going into draft day?

Berkman plays for an offensively stong team in a offensive park. Huff plays in a decent offensive team in a not so offensive park. Huff is not going to improve as much from 2003 to 2004 as he did from 2002 to 2003. Berkman will likely post a better season than he did in 2003.

Talent:Talent, how could Huff be a better pick than Berkman?

I go Berkman.

Berkman may only hit 5 or so more HR than Huff, but he will have more RBI in that line-up.

A big bat in Tampa Bay's line-up or Houston's line-up...hmmm.

They went back-to-back in my most recent draft, me selecting Berkman just after Huff left the board. Bags was there as well. I can see how it is a close call.
