Rollins will be top 120 for sure... #39, I doubt it, but he'll be good again. In that park and lineup, if he can continue to hti and steal like he is, he'll be a top SS again.
I don't know if people don't realize how good he was last year, or if they doubt he can keep it up. I don't think the .289 BA was indicative of his progress, and it will regress, but 119 R and 30 SB's? From one of the shallowest postions? It's hard to ignore that. And he doesn't hurt you in the power cats either. He gets a good amount of XBH's and his RBI are better than the typical speedy leadoff hitter.
"Jack, will you call me, if you're able?"
"I've got your phone number written, in the back of my Bible."
I agree on the Posada comment, how does he fall that far compared with the other C's?
And wow 3B is deep, but these guys hit the pipe before they drafted.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
Kint -- Good heavens, A-Rod at #1? The only good picks he had were Prior in the third and his closers. Possibly Nomar.
Allen -- Decent and potentially very good, but too many risks. Bay and Sexson could be difference makers, or they could blow his team out of the water.
Hurtt -- Very good with the potential to be excellent. I love Halladay and Lee.
Roberts -- He and Hurt have the teams to beat so far. Pedro, Boone, and Green are great values.
Gatto -- If it weren't for Wells, this was a very poor draft. Blalock in the third and Radke in the eighth? Good grief.
London -- Way too many risks, although I like Delgado. Beckett could be a steal too. But Morneau, Miller, and an injured Guillen? All three reaches which could bust his team early.
Bahr -- Could have a good team, but I keep on looking at Alou at ten and think the guy must be an idiot.
Kuznia -- Could have a good team, but I don't know if I would want to go into the season with my top two pitchers Vazquez and Harden. Chavez and Giles I like a lot.
Berry -- Should be the third team competing for the title. Crawford, Thome, Mora, Cabrera, and Figgins were excellent picks. His success will depend on Ordonez and Wright. If they come through, watch out.
Winkler -- Could be pretty good, but not a whole lot of value. Kendall, Garcia and Reyes especially.
Wheeler -- Some nice picks sprinkled around a bunch of garbage. Crosby, Roberts, and Sosa are crazy picks in my opinion.
Iyer -- Very good value with his hitters but his pitching may be his undoing. If Peavy progresses, Smoltz stays healthy, and I have no clue what he was doing with Buerhle, he could have a competing team.
