Nevin or Mike Sweeney? What round does each go in in 5x5?

Off of the top of my head, for now, I will say around the 10th for Nevin and around the 15th for Sweeney. Both are high risk-reward guys.

Coin flip for me. I would probably take Sweeney first. He has higher upside. Nevin is older and fragile. The more that I think about it, I would probably take Sweeney 2-3 round before Nevin even though Nevin had a slightly better year last year.

Sweeney is not Mr. Durability either.

Tough one...I'd probably take Sweeney first, but I would hope that he wouldn't be my only option at 1b. :-/

Yeah, what he said. I agree that both are high risk high reward type guys, but I think I'd rather take Nevin just becuase of the offense that's around him if I had to take one.

I agree with this. Nevin was more durable than Sweeney last year....of course, I'd feel just as confident holding Nick Johnson at 1B!!

I wouldn't take either one before the 15th round due to health reasons. I'd pick Nevin over Sweeney

Nevin ... maybe in the 8-9th round. Sweeney is even more vulnerable to injuries than Nevin.

I would take Sweeney before Nevin and probably start looking at both of them around the 13th to 16th round.
