Is King Felix a top 10 pick?

Postby nightmarerec0n » Thu Feb 24, 2011 3:30 am

I was over on Baseball Prospectus and these guys are obvious top level sabermetricists and know their stuff. However I was looking at their numbers and rating and saw Felix Hernandez going ....6th or auction value of $43.96.

Their projected 2011 is 15 W 210 SO 2.56 ERA 1.12 WHIP.......Amazing.

They also have Prince Fielder over Troy Tulowitski.

I wouldn't take Felix in the top 10.

Is he their top SP? I would have gone Halladay as my #1.

Nope. Top 10 picks are reserved for someone who will contribute to all categories. Since no pitcher can contribute to all 5 categories in a standard 5x5 league (i.e. wins and saves) you can't justify spending a top 10 pic on them. Felix only contributes in 3 categories (few W's because of his team, and no saves).

I wouldn't pick Felix top 10, but it wouldn't suprise me at all if he ended the year in the top 10.
