What provider gives him C eligibility? I think he's only OF eligible in Yahoo.


Oh they changed it at some point. When it first opened he was OF,C but now I'm seeing it as just C.

Ahh found a link to prove it! He started with C but it got removed shortly after. I hope the person who drafted him wasn't thinking he still had it like I did!

I'm a little surprised at the rookies flying off the wall so quickly...

So am I. With the draft round acceleration they aren't really great deals yet and will quickly lose such value. To each his own.

It looks like we're likely skipping both of Oopah's picks.

Zep, anytime after 1:30 EST, go ahead and make yours.

I'm a sucker for Youk. I think that big meathead will rebound a bit in NYY. He'll be a good Util or bench/CI guy for me if he stays relatively healthy.

I'm not big on Youkilis but in the 19th round why not, he obviously has upside at that point and if push comes to shove you bench him and have him be a Mon/Thu guy.

I suppose that I'm not really huge on him this year either. I think I'm just more of a fan of his in general. Hell, my team in another Cafe league has been "No Youk For You" for the last handful of seasons. :-b

I also didn't really see any available players with the same offensive upside, that wasn't also a huge BA liability. Normally I'd probably go younger with that type of pick, but I like the rest of my young hitters enough to go for a "win now" type guy.

I've been forced to pick him as my starting 3B in another 14 team Cafe league. !+)

So I can only hope he is solid!

(And the same could be said for Stubbs - just hope he runs enough to make him somewhat valuable).

I hope my team can handle the BA liability I just drafted !+)
