your freakin crazy if you think he is still gonna be around come the 10 round. There is no way magglio will make it out of the 5th round in ANY draft. if he does your likely playing with a league full of people who simply go by 2004 stats.


every1 on this thread who says i will grab him in the 10 round or later..........your probably the same guy who one year ago said

Randy Johnson? no he isnt the same anymore, no way i would touch him, maybe i would risk it if he were there in round 23?

wut a joke. its these ppl who lose in fantasy baseball :-D

You'd be surprised how late Magglio is going...just from looking at some of the mock drafts in the Cafe here is his draft position...
Mock 1-5.05
Mock 2- 4.06
H2H Mock- 8.3
H2H Mock 2- 7.3
H2H Mock 3- 7.7
and in Mock 3 he hasn't been taken as of the conclusion of Round 6. Therefore you can get him much later than round 3 as IMO he's not worth the risk there when you can get him 2 rounds later.
Also, it's pretty optimistic to believe he'll get 32 HR this year, considering he's been playing in the best (according to ESPN) HR park in the league the past few years and going to the 24th best in Comerica Park. And even in his last full healthy season 03' he only hit 29. I have him projected for 25 HR assuming he's healthy ;-D
