I hope everyone in my league thinks as little of Giles and Utley as the rest of you seem too.

Looks good for me ;-D

I'm right there with you. I'm more of a believer in Giles than Utley, but I wouldn't mind taking him in the later rounds if he's skipped over. :-)

Todd Walker seems to be my underated 2B, hope I get a steal on him, going into 2005. He reminds me of Loretta's emergence last year.
Give him a lock on the job, a good lineup, and those career stats suddenly produce great numbers when (and have) projected to 550AB's.
Dont let him slip past the 10th 2B taken.

I'd rank....

1. Soriano
2. Loretta
3. M. Giles
4. Jeff Kent
5. B. Boone
6. J. Reyes
7. K. Matsui
8. Jose Vidro
9. T. Walker
10. C. Figgins
11. C. Utley
12. R. Durham
13. T. Womack
14. J. Uribe
15. L. Castillo
16. P. Palonco
17. D. Roberts
18. A. Kennedy
19. Hairston Jr
20. M. Bellhorn (1540 career at - bats .241 career AVE) :-P


Dont overlook Todd Walker guys.

Why is everyone forgetting about Todd Walker? He will be the everyday 2B for the Cubs this year.

I am thinking:

.280/ 18 / 75 / 90 runs

1. Soriano
2. Kent
3. Giles
4. Boone
5. Vidro
6. Lorretta
7. Reyes
8. Durham
9. Polanco
10. Kaz Matsui (switching to 2B)

Soriano is gotta be the #1 b/c he is capable of 40HR,40SB,100RBI,100Runs

Kent is the safest pick at 2B and I pick him every year on almost all my teams and i am never dissapointed. Guy is so consitent for 100rbi,25hr,300avg,90runs,5sb

Marcus Giles when healthy is great and a future batting champ imo

Bret Boone, i studied his stats a few weeks ago b/c I was thinking come bak year for him after last season. Then I was reminded of his years and years of bad seasons where his OBP was in the low 300's. His 2004 year looked A LOT like his years from before he got good.

I seriously think Bret Boone's goood years from whatever 2000-2003 were "flukes"

Most of his career not including his good season's the guy's OBP was like 315

I think Boone is going to be inbetween his 2004 and 2003 numbers come this season

Put him down for
80 Runs
20 HR
80 RBI
8 SB
270 AVG

Still a top five 2B but not the top 3

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Walker is a free agent. I would wait until he signs before giving him the starting job. :-D

They declined Grudzielanek's option, so I am pretty sure they are going to try and sign him. If they dont then I have him ranked to high probably.
