fantasyFiend--I like EDMUNDS but considering this is a keeper draft and the fact he's in the OF, I'd rather have Giles.

hope he went with giles. that would've been the best option, IMO.

I did go with Giles, simply because this keeper draft has reallllly focused on the keeper aspect from most owners. Reyes is already drafted! I was like......huh?

But anyway, I didn't see Giles coming back to me, but I did see Edmonds possibly. I like knowing I will have a good second basemen for years to come. I understand the Edmonds argument and will take him if he is left three picks from now(well...him or Lidge if he lasts).

But I already drafted two sluggers with my first two picks and was looking to make a long-term infield selection. We'll see if it works out. I'm sure there will be a Edmonds vs. Young vs. Mora vs. Lidge post up from me once my next pick comes.

I understand your argument and appreciated your advice, but I knew I could grab a power outfielder with my next pick or even in the next round. I saw people were starting to grab 2nd Basemen and SS's so I picked the person that I thought would be gone sooner, rather then the guy who might put up bigger numbers this year. Honestly, I think Edmonds will come back to me next pick and at that point I'll feel fine picking him. Everyone has been drafting young guys too early so far, so I went with my gut cause I think Giles was on pace for a huge year last year before he went down and he will be a top 3 2nd basemen for years. I would feel worse letting him slip away then letting Edmonds, who before last year wasn't drafted until the 8th or 9th round for the most part.

Anyway, I get your point, but there is nothing gained from coming on here with a pompous attitude like you are some mastermind. Maybe you win your league every year cause people can't stand ya after a few months and leave........ :,-(
