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? Essentially, who are the value picks of this draft? Here is a sheet with a couple names that I will update as more suggestions are made. Lets try to make this an extensive list, hopefully with at least 10 or 15 names per position.
Olivo (if he starts somewhere)
Daryl Ward (see OF also)
Figgins (see 2B, OF too)
W M Pena
BJ Ryan (if he closes)

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
