For me, one of the most scarce positions this yr is SP.
That surprises me. I actually thought it was the exact opposite but I do agree that 2B and SS are no where near as shallow as many would believe.
Getting No. 1 type guys like Halladay, Mussina, Wood, Clemens, Hudson, Mulder in like rounds 5-6-7, to me shows there is very good depth.
If Clemens was my ace I'd be very, very worried. But I agree, there are a lot of SP bargains to be had.
If any of those guys were my ace I'd be very worried, my point is they are all capable of putting up Ace numbers, yet they are only No.2's this year.
Well, Im not crazy here - Im actually concerned with SPs about 20-25 SPs out. Basically Im looking at a sizeable drop in talent after the top 2 tiers. Sure, Burnett is a steal in the 7th rd, but the talent dries up real quick right about then. The team with 3 of those guys is in the driver seat pretty easily. Thats the position scarcity Im talkin about - the top couple tiers are much better and have much higher upsides than the 3rd or lower. If I can see that there's only a couple 2B and SSs I want in the first 10 rds, and only for the right price, then Im going after SP pretty heavily this yr.
