Everyone knows who the top players are, but....

Postby Bloody Nipples » Mon Nov 15, 2004 4:45 pm

the real genius of a draft comes in the mid to late rounds. I ask this: Who are the players at each position that can be had after round 7 who could make a strong fantasy impact next season?

I'm curious why people think Mirabelli is such hot stuff. Sure, he had a great 2004, but:

A. He's 34 years olf
B. He's a lifetime .242 hitter
C. He can't hit righties (look at his lifetime splits).

If he's a #1, you're looking at a guy who bats .230 to .250, scores and drives in maybe 50 or 60, and bangs 10-15 HRs. I don't see that as much of a value.

i'm not too high on mirabelli either. his stats were better in 2004, but still he had limited ABs, not sure he can keep up hitting well during the whole season with more than 400 ABs. but he plays in boston and that team scores tons of runs, so he will get his chances to score and knock in runs.

toby hall again? seriously, i thought everyone gave up on him :-b

MIRABELLI IS NO #1. CAREER BACK-UP AT 34 WILL NOT EVER BE A #1 C, UNLESS THE LEAGUE EXPANDS TO 50 TEAMS...

Chipper should be at 3B

and Trevor should be on that RP list. Nobody in here had him in their top 10 so I guess he is a late round pick now .. :*)

I don't think V Wells, Renteria, or possibly Furcal slip past the 7th. Have they slid that much or am I missing something?
