Nice subliminal shot. Not my fault you had your 2B rankings all screwed up. Mine were spot on.


My rankings? Yep my rankings were screwed up. So screwed up that I had Cano exactly where he should have been preseason (which is after Utley and Kinsler) and drafted accordingly so that Cano is actually my 2B in my primary money league. But broad generalizations are fun so why throw in facts and spoil the good time?

While I am happy for you, then. Your 2B rankings were indeed the correct ones. :-)

Still no need to take subliminal shots. Not even sure why you are flaming me. Normally I get flamed because people are still upset they missed a Top 5 fantasy player and want to blame it on me. I never been flamed from a volCANO owner before.

How many times does this guy have to say "relative to draft position" before people get it?
Prado went 16th, 17th, 18th, round in most leagues.
Cano went 4th round.

There's only so far a 4th rounder can go....granted Cano has done it :-D
But it's really not a big deal to compare the two when you're doing it from the standpoint of draft value, rather than actual player comparison...which is what the OP did in the first place.

How about this way.

Players acceptable to compare to Robinson Cano:
Robinson Cano
God
Robinson Cano


Prado is having a great season so far. I got him in 1 league but then in a 2nd league ended up getting outbid on him because of his 3B eligibility. It's been such a rough year for 3B's that Prado was more valuable to someone else filling their 3B spot than they were to me filling my MI spot. He's been one of the best draft values, certainly.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
