I like the chatter, makes me realize you guys actually give a damn.


Agreed. Although I guess it is still bad form during snake drafts.

Then as long as we are talking, Mauer for $30 is insane. :-o I don't see any way his power even comes close to what it was last year, regardless of what Stadium they are playing in.

If he can come close to last season's stats, I don't see it being insane. Also consider he missed the first month of the season. Big pop, high average, position scarcity. ;D

9. 13. 7. 9. 28. Which one seems out of place to you? And playing in an stadium that is now projected to suppress HR's?

Good luck with him, but I thought going over 20 was crazy for him.

I'll say it again. In snake drafts, Mauer's going in the first round. $30 is appropriate. Often times he goes before Ryan Howard and the likes...look at the price comparison there.

But, snakes are snakes.

I do think that Mauer is a little high at $30. That was my hope in nominating him early. O:-)
