Fantasy Farm Draft Coming Up- WHIR

Postby OldEnglishZ » Sun Mar 20, 2011 10:31 pm

AL-only first year farm draft. I have the second pick.

5x5, OBP instead of Runs

I am looking at Trout, Montero, Hellickson, Ackley, and Moustakas. Anyone else I should consider?

Also, my second pick is the 19th overall? Hoping Machado or Miguel Sano are there but if not, who are your 20ish ranked AL-only prospects?

Thanks!

You're missing a couple of guys that I like more than the guys you listed. My first few AL prospects are:

Trout, Michael (Mike)
Montero, Jesus
Hosmer, Eric
Myers, Wil

For the second pick I would bet Sano is there. If you are set on taking a bat, you might also consider the following guys:

Chisenhall, Lonnie
Kipnis, Jason
Lawrie, Brett
Hicks, Aaron
In my fridge: Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS), Central Waters Peruvian Morning, Bell's Batch 10,000, Dale's Pale Ale, Capital Brewery Amber, New Glarus Moon Man, and Guinness.

Any of these 4 would be a fine #2 pick depending on team needs. If you're open to taking a pitcher, may I suggest:

Jacob Turner
Mike Montgomery
Michael Pineda
Matt Moore

My choice at the #2 overall pick would be between those four probably in that order but a case could be made for any of them. And I like all 4 of these bats better than Sano again in that order. As a Twins fan I just don't trust Sano. He has tons of power and tons of movement (vertical) in his swing. I will remain a skeptic (and more down on him that most) until I get some confidence that he can hit decent offspeed stuff. Right now I see some similarities to Pedro Alvarez (in a stat sheet). Raw power, problems with K's and defense that might not play at 3B. Of course Pedro is going to be a solid MLB'er but it's possible that Sano goes down the Villalona path (at least until his legal trouble - murder charges...).

I am really considering Turner just because I am a Tigers fan, but I think I have to go with a bat.

Sano would be 5th on the above list for me as well.
