What everybody everybody everybody seems to be overlooking in the Braun discussion is this: how much did what he was taking (unintentionally,of course) help him? How much is a juice-less Ryan Braun worth over 112 games?

I also think that, along with that, you have to consider the fact that he no longer has Prince Fielder protecting him in the line up, either.

That being said, I'd still risk a third round pick on him, especially in a deeper league.

He has been tested for years and never failed, if he was taking something it was likely short term. I just don't think it will matter at all. Also Aramis will protect him fine as would Hart or Weeks, he isn't going to have some huge letdown from losing Fielder. He'll lose some runs but that is about it.

Actually, going to hold off a couple of days for CBS and/or ESPN to post their ADPs first. Expect an update by this Friday or so. ;-D

This probably isn't the best place to discuss it but why are Dustin Ackley and Jason Kipnis separated by about 5 rounds? They're basically the same player with the same (limited) upside correct?

Ackley has always been the more highly touted prospect of the two. They are separated by 50 picks (about 4 rounds in a 12 team draft). I think Ackley is a bit high on people's draft boards, but people tend to rely more and more on Baseball America's prospect rankings. Ackley was #12 overall last year and 11 the year before. Kipnis was #54 last year and not ranked the year before. I wouldn't say they have limited upside. Each one could end up being 15-15 or 20-20, which would put them in the top 8 or so 2B in all of fantasy baseball.

I get the impression most of you feel like Braun can maintain his production when he comes back. What's the earliest you would take him in a dynasty draft? Do you still like him in that late second early third round area?

The earliest I would take him in a dynasty is #1 overall. :-b

Realistically though, I don't see how he makes it past the top 5 picks in a long term league.
