Hes probably one of those guys Ill steer clear of, Im not one to go for these risky players. Now if he fell to me like somewhere in the 6th or 7th round then I might consider taking him but Im sure someone will take him before that in all of my leagues.

Someone will take him in the first 4 rounds in almost every league I should think...I know it will not be me. No reason to gamble like that with a guy who is putting up round 15 or so numbers. I would not touch him top 80 overall. Someone will spend a round 4 pick on the guy in all likelihood and bypass an ARam or the like or even a second rounder and bypass a Tex or the like....to each his own. Sometimes those risks pay off...most of the time they do not and are just stupidity.

Great point... I've learned my lesson this year in fantasy baseball. Always go for the guys you know will produce. I'm trying to get guys like Ortiz and Aramis next year. Pure studs.

After this year, where I wasted a 4th overall pick on him, I am staying far away from him. :-t I'll let someone waster a high pick on him

he was a hot hitter in a hitters ball park last year. now he's in a pitcher's ball park at shea. 20/30 .280 80 rbis could be expected next year right? id take him in the late 3rd to early 4th round if possible.

Once he gets traded for Manny Ramirez in the off season his value will be great playing in Fenway.

Huh? Manny would be with the Mets if that happened.

Good idea in theory but who knows who is going to be a sure thing next year. Coming into this year Helton, Thome, Rolen, Beltran among others were all considered very safe picks.
