If its between those 2, definitely go with Granderson. Both have avg issues but Granderson will outproduce Tex in runs/steals while probably staying close in HR/RBI

I'd take a chance on Granderson there, and if Ian Kinsler is there I'd grab him before Granderson

I am taking Granderson over Tex. Granderson will likely regress but will be close to Tex in HR's and RBI's while giving you an extra 20 SB. Both will not contribute much in the AVG department.

As far as other guys to look at with the 22nd pick. HanRam is ranked 21 on yahoo but I've done two league drafts and a bunch of mocks and he is never on the board there. But if he is, I would snatch him up. Other than that, Granderson will probably be your best bet.

I have Tex and Granderson ranked in the 30's, so you should be able to snag someone else. Of the 2 I would go with Granderson for the steals he will give you.

Others to think about at #22 - Stanton or a top SP - Halladay, Kershaw, etc.

I had 3rd pick on my team and ended up taking Zimmerman with Granderson and Verlander still on the board. I already regret it. I would rank your 2nd pick like this

Granderson
Tex
Halladay/Kershaw/Verlander

Is Stanton worth consideration here or is he overhyped?
