Who to draft: Jose Reyes or Hunter Pence?

Postby jsp » Mon Mar 12, 2012 6:42 pm

I feel like Pence might have a great season this year in the Phillies lineup full-time... but Jose Reyes is money in the bank.

Who should I draft?

Thanks guys, appreciate any opinions.

I like Reyes despite the injury concerns. Thinner position and his three categories aren't far off from Pence's 3.5 categories or so.

I like the move to warmer weather for Jose's Hammys and he was ranked top 30 last year despite missing 40 games. Theoretically, he can miss 40 games this year and still be worth it. I'd take that handycap.

Reyes. He's probably going higher than he should in drafts but he's still easily more valuable than pence.

;-D Agree. And I don't think it is close.

This isn't close at all. Pence isn't even the best fantasy OF on his team, so Victorino compared to Reyes would be a better question to ask.

I'd still go with Reyes of course though. Reyes is a top 25 commodity, whereas Pence maybe cracks the top 50.
