Take Griffey in the 2nd?

Postby FrankDeJesus » Thu Mar 18, 2004 3:30 am

I'm thinking about taking Griffey Jr in the second round.

In 1993, he hit .309, 45 homers, 109 RBI.
In 1996, he hit .303, 49 homers, 140 RBI.
In 1997, he hit .304, 56 homers, 147 RBI.
In 1998, he hit .284, 56 homers, 146 RBI, and 20 SBs!
In 1999, he hit .285, 48 homers, 134 RBI, and 24 SBs!

This guy is great.

I'm not sure if this is a joke post or what, but I think you will be able to get Griffey after the 15th round in almost every league if you really MUST have him. He would still be great if he could stay healthy, but mark my words, that ain't happening.....You would have to be on dope, crack, X, and PCP to take Grif in the 2nd round..... No offense if you really didn't know this... ;-)

8-o :-P

I'd take him in the third. :*)


I've been grabbing Griffey in the later rounds for the past few years and I get burned everytime.

I am avoiding drafting anyone who is recovering from a nagging injury such as Lowell and Luis Gonzalez. And of course Griffey.

I would definitely take Griffey in the second round of a 140-team league where I already had Pedro Martinez to anchor my rotation.

Take Him

FrankDeJesus makes a great point with those Griffey stats. You should use your third round pick to take Mo Vaughn.

In 1993, he hit .297, 29 homers, 101 RBI.
In 1995, he hit .300, 39 homers, 126 RBI, and 11 SB
In 1996, he hit .326, 44 homers, 143 RBI.
In 1998, he hit .337, 40 homers, 115 RBI.
In 1999, he hit .281, 33 homers, 108 RBI.


I also reccomend Fred Mcgriff, Ricky Henderson, Dean Palmer and Barry Larkin.

These guys are great.


Correction, were great. You can't base your projections on 5 year old stats.

Go with 3B Fernando Tatis over Griffey in round 2. In 1999
Tatis had 104R, 34HR, 107RBI, 21SB, .298AVG.
