Abreu a 2nd Rounder?

I like Abreu a lot but there are definitely OFs I would take before him...Beltran, Vlad, Manny, Bonds, Pujols, and Sosa and maybe even Berkman and Maggs. So thats like 8 OFs I would take before him not counting pitchers and other positions, so in a 12 team league I would probably take him 3rd round. If he slipped to the 4th I would think I got a good deal, if he slips any lower you got a steal.

I traded vernon wells early in the season for Abreu and I am been very pleased.

Abreu has second round value. That being said most people disagree with me on that, and thus you should try to give up 3th-4th round value for him.

Guy has been extremely consistent. 02 season was excellent and is dropped to 3th and 4th because last year he was down a little in stats. Don't let it fool you.

It is too early to tell how many bases he will steal, but at minimum expect 15.

pretty close but id put him typically early- but more mid 3rd round... he would've moved up to late second tho if he had shown that he would steal more bags. theres prolly no one better than him at giving values in all 5 major cats except for Soriano and Beltran.

id be really surprised if Guerrero stole more than 10 bags this year with the dominant linup and the back brace.
