To put simply no, they're value defenitely increases due to position scarcity but I'd still take Pujols, Vlad, and Beltran over them.

Value wise...I don't think Soriano is a first round pick at all...his numbers should be more worth a mid to late second round...Tejada is rightfully considered a mid to late first round pick... :-)

But as to taking either one of them first over-all....I wouldn't...more value will be gotten from Pujols, Vlad, A-Rod or Beltran.... :-)

no posistion scarcity IMO isnt that big of a deal to me in the first rounds, pujols, vlad, arod, and beltran should all be picked ahead of those guys for sure especially soriano who i think is an early second rounders, Tejada though IMO is worthy of being drafted at the number 5 spot though

No, take Pujols. And, SS is actually rather deep this year. Lots of good starters to be had.

SS is _much better_ in depth this year. If there is a "weak position",
it's at 2B in all leagues and C in the NL-Only.

I would have no problem taking Tejada in the middle of the 1st and Soriano at the end of the 1st. :-)

Soriano

Postby Boogster26 » Sat Feb 26, 2005 10:52 pm

I'd go with Soriano. Both of these guys play in little parks with big lineups. But Soriano runs. And I'm suspicious of Tejada's bulk. He could be juiced-- a real drag for a first round pick if it turns out that way. Up the middle this year, I'm looking for speed. Jimmy Rollins kinda guy.

I'd go for pitchers first. Santana. Johnson. Schmidt.

Then I'm drafting parks and lineups-- Rangers, Orioles, Todd Helton. You can't drug a stadium.
