Crawford
Sheffield
Thome
Suzuki
Prior
Sheets
Schmidt
Michael Young
O. Perez

It will come back to me 5 picks from now also.... can you list them in the value they have. My first pick was Arod by the way.

I agree; as much as I'd hate to give up Prior-- Crawford is the guy to get

So.....

1)Crawford
2)Prior
3)Thome
4)Suzuki
5)Sheets (keeper)
6)Schmidt

I feel like I should have more options in the second round.....

Mora
Chavez(but have 3B already)
Edmonds

also available. Turns out I'm 2 picks away by the way. I just hope Crawford and Prior don't both go away...... :-o

If oyu are still two picks away, I would hope Crawford would still be there, but it's a good chance he won't be. He virtually locks up SB for his owner right there. Given a snake draft where you have this pick and then another pick 5 picks away, I would go with a hitter this round, and go with Teixeira if available, or perhaps David Ortiz, as they will both post monster numbers. Then in round 3, I would choose a pitcher, based on the common thought of 2 hitters, 1 pitcher commonly used in drafts

That's funny you mentioned those two guys because they have both already been selected. Teixera went 5th! Ortiz went a few picks ago. The guy on the clock picked up Santana in the first, so he won't pick up Prior. I hope he picks up power and the next guy goes with a pitcher like Schmidt or Prior. We'll see. I hate waiting.........

1 - Crawford
2 - Prior
3 - Ichiro
4 - Sheffield
5 - Thome
6 - Oliver Perez
7 - M. Young

I like Sheets more then Perez though. If Prior and Crawford are gone I'll take a big bat and 5 picks later take whichever pitcher is left, probably sheets or Perez.

But if I had to decide between the 2 I like Sheets more. Maybe I'm wrong, but both players play for mediocre teams and Sheets numbers were better last year weren't they?
