I thought he was at that position in the first place :-?


He could've been, the few mock drafts that I did with some other people had him go as low as the 8th. I guess it depends on who your drafting with. I've got him in most of my leagues, and one drafting tonight I really hope I snag him.

What makes you think he won't be healthy? Don't think this guy is like Austin Kearns or JD Drew. He went down with a bad shoulder in 2003 and never got it right until late August 2004. Now he is healthy there is no reason to suggest he won't stay healthy.

Remember, before his shoulder in 2003 he had only missed 18 games in the previous 4 seasons combined.

I snagged Carlos Lee in the 13th, which I think is a late round snag.

Frayed Labrum, Torn Rotator cuff. Not only does he have the most common throwing injury, he has the top 2. Both of these injuries have a high frequency of reoccurence and when they do, he will be riding the pine. The labrum can also affect you when you swing - Exibit A, Richie Sexson.

I guess the Diamondbacks are confident it won't reoccur ;-)

He'll get plenty of time at 1B this season anyway and will be Arizona's first baseman of the future. Raffy Palmeiro played there in a wheelchair last season so I guess we can call it the NL's DL position.

and leave austin kearns out of it. his injuries have largely been freakish. if anything, i'd say his value has gone through the roof this spring.

The same D'backs that signed him to a 4 year $45million contract?
The same D'backs that signed Russ Ortiz to a 4 year $33million contract?
The same D'backs that traded Curt Schilling for a bunch of spare parts?

:-D

I have no faith in the D'backs management. They only signed Glaus to that deal to show to their fans that they are trying to win, even though they were crying poor during the 2004 season, and were always trading their only player that people came to see play.

You leave Russ Ortiz out of this. He's going to be huge this year.
