Who are you avoiding next year?

Postby A Fleshner Fantasy » Fri Aug 17, 2012 11:31 am

Basically, this is a thread to discuss guys who you think are going to be way overvalued in next year's draft. For me, I think it's going to be Tulo. He can't seem to stay healthy, yet he is likely going to go near the end of the 1st/beginning of the 2nd round. It's just way too big a risk, and I feel like you can lose a draft in the first couple rounds, but you can't win one there.

Maris is way overvalued and always will be because of what he did back in 61.

I think it's a little early to decide on all the guys I'll be avoiding. Tulo will be one of them for sure, he was on my avoid list this season and has done nothing to change my mind. I'd probably take him in round 6 or 7 if he is there (which he won't be). And before anyone LOLs at that just think if you had gotten him in round 7 this season would you consider that a good investment?

One guy I am going to be reaching for is Harper. This is going to sound bad and make me look bad but the last time I saw someone with the raw talent he possesses was when Ankiel was called up. I don't think Ankiel ever realized his potential, but I'm hoping Harper will.

That's a pretty good start. I don't think I'll own Beltran next year either.

People have been saying the same thing about Cueto for the past 2 years, But I think he's the real deal. His stats have been pretty consistent. He's just not a K guy. But he gets a ;-D from me.

Justin Upton. I was avoiding him in the first round this year, if he's going near that high again I won't be touching him.

I'll also probably be avoiding David Wright and McCutchen where they will most likely be drafted.
