I guess, I'm just not sure about taking a Lee, Hunter, and Pena type in the 6-9 range. With those kinds of guys, especially Lee and Hunter here, you're mainly just hoping they repeat their numbers from last year. That's fine for your first few picks, I tend to avoid risk in the first 5 rounds, but once I have my offensive foundation, I like to take more chances, draft guys like McCutchen for example. If I'm looking at taking a Lee or Pena or being stuck with something like Adam LaRoche at 1B if I don't pull the trigger, I'd go for it but I think that range is where you would want to take a chance on someone more intriguing like Tulo over someone safer like Lackey, Maggs, or Atkins last year. I can't see myself drafting Hunter unless he really slips.

I like Kubel also but not sure how the combination of moving from a dome to outdoor stadium because he was much better at home vs. on the road, his extremely hot final week pumping up his overall numbers, and being hopeless against lefties limiting his upside. I also agree with you that he's not a .300 hitter. He's still a target though, much better than guys getting drafted around him, but don't think 30/100 will happen. I think Carlos Gonzalez is a much more intriguing pick.

I fully agree with you here, just seems a bit strange because Pena is the one I'd least enjoy owning. He is the one that could easily be worthless with a little bad luck in BABIP.

I hope Pena can't do worse than a .228 BA. He's somewhat all over the place, not really sure what to expect out of him. I would assume most think his BABIP won't be so low again and he'll get his BA up to respectably poor. He also misses time every year.

No Aramis Ramirez? I get the injuries and all, but he's still a top 100 player.

Good list. But here's some nitpicking.

21 Jose Reyes-- Way too high.

49 Carlos Quentin-- Way too high. (Although, Go White Sox.)

88 Joe Nathan-- Too Low.

93 Yovani Gallardo-- WAY too low.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

suprised you had joe mauer so low, i think he will regress a bit from his career year last year, but even with regression, i think he is still a top 15 pick and in many drafts he is going in the top 10 in many.

Again, this list is a blend of how I project them, and how I would draft them. Some people may take him to 10, but I wouldn't feel comfortable taking him until the mid-late 2nd rnd.

Oh i understand, i would just suggest bumping him up your rankings. A C with his stat line, even regressed, is a top 15 guy in my mind.
