Who's underated in the Yahoo draft?

Postby ondeckb » Mon Feb 11, 2013 9:52 pm

There are always a lot of players that Yahoo screws up rating in the draft. Some underated players I see are Will Middlebrooks, Kyle Seager and Chris Davis. Who do you think are underated value players on Yahoo this year?

There's a lot of $0 and $1 players that offer good potential. Just from them I see:

C Pierzynski $1
C/OF Wil Myers $0
1B/OF Corey Hart $0
2B/OF Emilio Bonifacio $0
2B/3B Kyle Seager $1
2B/SS Josh Rutledge $1
3B Manny Machado $1
SS Billy Hamilton $0
OF Josh Reddick $1
RP Axford/Jansen/C Perez/Grilli/Balfour/Madson/Janssen/Perkins/Broxton $1
RP Marmol/Rondon $0
SP Vogelsong/H Bailey/Lohse/Miley/Cahill/Hughes $1
SP Fiers/Erasmo Ramirez/Phelps/Griffin/Santana/Hanson $0

Pitching looks priced well at the top, except for maybe Price at $26 looks a bit low. Harvey at $4 is a good gamble.
OF - Trumbo $5, Crawford $8, Melky $8, Chris Davis $3 - I'd gamble on one of these guys for those prices.
3B - Aram $13, Middlebrooks $3. - good cheap stats here
2B - Altuve $11 seems like a deal.
1B looks priced well. Encarnacion for $23 or Butler for $21 ain't bad.
C I like Napoli for $5 getting regular ABs at 1B in Bostons lineup if I don't go for a $1 Pierzynski.

Tough to know this early. A lot of pre-rank shuffling occurs on the site between now and mid-March (or later) when people draft.

I don't know. I assume those values are from the standard yahoo format which is so shallow that I have to imagine early round inflation is just huge.
