They seem like 8-11 round types this season and it seems like better value can be had elsewhere in those rounds. Waiting for a Hardy or Tejada several rounds later is sounding better and better after doing a few mocks.


I think Escobar could really hold some value near that range.

I like this list alot, great job once again!

I just wish I hadn't traded Tulo, who I drafted as a backup, away early last year after his start when I thought Rollins was going to pick it up.

Orlando Cabrera goes up 2 spots after signing with the Reds and looking to play half his games in GAP.

Is there anything standing in the way of Pennington as the starting A's SS. Grant Green doesn't count this year imo.

Nope, he seems to have been given the starting job but is likely to bat down the order I think and his upside is limited.

Not much different than the bottom of the list imo. If he can go .280 with 5HR's and 20 SB's that is nice value for deep leagues where sometimes you just need a living, breathing SS. Although I hope that I only need him as a backup in the deep leagues.

Havok, what would your personal projections of Alexei, Drew and YEscobar for 2010 look like? Just from the hip what would you give them?

Yunel = .303, 23 HR, 85RBI, 85 R, 8 SB
Drew = .285, 18 HR, 79RBI, 80 R, 6 SB
Ramirez = .291, 21 HR, 80 RBI, 93 R, 20 SB

hm SS looks to be the most shallow position this yr, IMO. if you dont get one of those top 5, there isnt much i would like later. andrus and alcides are obviously the best sleepers at the back end, but im sure as we get closer to drafting time we'll see those guys' MDP soar and in many, if not most, you'll have to reach if you want to get one of those 2. i thought 3b would be the most shallow hands down, but you can get solid guys like aram, kung fu panda, and gordon beckham later if you miss out on the top 4 guys.

There is no compelling reason that I can see to think Yunel will break 20 HR this year. He hasn't shown extra power in his doubles or anything like that, he never showed power in the minors and he didn't have a 2nd half power surge or anything. Is there some reason you believe he is the one that is going to break out rather than someone like say Drew who has at least hit 20 once?

Is it worth paying the price for the 6-10 range of SS?


Not really. SS is very deep this year. Wouldn't surprise me if the 15th-20th players on the list earn as much as the 7-10 guys.
