when scouts and lists rank players, they don't do it for fantasy leagues, they do it for real life, and Iglesias's defense is supposed to be so good - generational if you will - it outweighs his limited offensive approach.

Then I'd rather have someone like a Hak-Ju Lee who can provide both an exceptional glove and an above average bat.

for sure, As a Sox fan, I don't care if the guy can cover the whole area between 2nd and 3rd by himself when he's guaranteed to kill a rally by grounding out to the pitcher.

I think he'll end up at 3B but he's one of my favorite non 1B IF prospects. These seem very difficult to find in dynasties. I also grabbed Schoop but he doesn't have the same kind of upside (not even close).


24-team league?! Wow. My league is having trouble finding a 12th owner. Then again, we're a keeper auction league with a $85 fee.
Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball. ~Jim Murray
