Minor League Draft

Postby TurdFerguson » Thu Jan 28, 2010 12:00 pm

We just started our minor league draft.. Strasburg, Tate, Chapman, Hobgood, and Ackley are all gone.. We have 55 man rosters so all the prospects are pretty much gone except the ones drafted each year.. There are guys like Starlin Castro still that have not been picked up yet and Dee Gordon.. My question is out of this past years draft who would you take? Im looking at pitching ,SS, and 3B.. Its also a dynasty league so Im looking for a future stud basically.. Any help would be appreciated.. Thanks

That was very confusing...I thought you were having a conversation with yourself. Hey steve-o, produce a top 50 list for the community compilation?

I PMed it. I don't want to produce it publicly until after my league's draft since I know some of my leaguemates frequent this site.

I'd probably go Scheppers over Turner if I were you. Same great velocity, but Scheppers is going to make an impact more quickly and I like his breaking stuff much better. I can understand about being scared away by the shoulder or the ballpark though.

Yeah Sickels likes both a lot.. The shoulder injury and ballpark is the only thing that worry me.. So you think Scheppers has a higher ceiling? It just seems he comes with more risk..

The Rockies seem to have found a way to cut down on ballpark effect. Maybe the Rangers can do the same.
