My pick soon, should I draft.......?

Postby pjalst » Thu Feb 03, 2011 10:32 am

In my Dynasty League we are currently in th middle of our prospect draft(5 rounds). This is an established league so most of the top prospects are taken. My pick is up again soon and I was contemplating taking Mark Trumbo in the 3rd round and wanted to get your thoughts. Just to give you an idea of what's available, some of the players just taken are:

Manny Banuelos
Jean Segura
Devin Mesoraco
Jose Iglesias
Randall Delgado

Some of the notable prospects still available are:

Jake Odorizzi
Chris Archer
Aaron Crow
Chris Carter
AJ Cole

My question is, do any of you think Trumbo would be a good pick at this point or do you think I'm reaching?

A bit of a reach. I'd go Carter then Archer from the short list you gave.

I gotta think there are better prospects available than the ones you mentioned.

Like I said before this is an established league and our minor league rosters are unlimited. You can hold on to a prospect in your farm until they reach 130AB or 50 IP. All the Desmond Jennings and Bryce Harpers are already taken.

I like Chris Archer on that list with Carter and Odorizzi also being solid picks. Trumbo looks like nothing more than a low end 1Bman if he can earn a starting spot. Not really interesting in minors draft imo.

What I mean is that there are likely guys on par with AJ Cole and other guys already taken in the round. that should be available. Someone like Salcedo (Atl -SS), Z. Wheeler (SF), D. Santana (Phi - OF), D. Tate (SD - OF), G. Green (Oak - SS), K. Vitek (Bos - 3B), C. Blackmon (Col - OF), J. Mitchell (ChW - OF), Y. Rodriguez (Cin - OF), A. Vizcaino (Atl - P), E. Beltre (Tex - OF) all have higher upside imo. Of those you listed, I think I like Cole the best though.
