There are a lot of us guys like that re: Pujols.
As for Sizemore, I think (oddly) everyone's right on this one. It looks like Sizemore's for real, but he could potentially stink next year. Some may say he's worth a 3rd rounder (put me in for a 5th rounder myself), some may say he's not, but either way, he's worth a gamble if you like taking moderate risks. One thing is clear, he's no Vlad yet, but he's probably no Podsednik either.
I think most of the points made here are correct as well. The thing about Sizemore and Morneau is that the 3rd round is too soon for them because they should have been picked up in the 15th round LAST YEAR (or in morneau's case, the year prior). This doesnt apply to re-draft leagues, but in keeper leagues, wise managers would have had Sizemore in their scopes long before this year's draft. Draft them late and you dont have huge investment in them >im impressed with the guys who drafted Pujols BEFORE his rookie year, not after...
