cano's moving from the top of the yankee lineup to the bottom due to the addition of J. Damon so I'd move him down a bit....overall a pretty good list

I absolutely disagree. I'd take Utley in the early/middle second round. There's not another 2B I'd take in the top 3 rounds. I think there is way too much love out there for Figgins, and the only thing Sori had going for him was Texas. If I had the choice, I'd take Utley every single time, and to me the drop to #2 isn't even close.

I completely agree with this statement. I would also drop Loretta a few and move Iguchi up a tier.

Personally I'd put Giles ahead of Cantu, but that's because I don't have much faith in the Devil Ray. If you'd like to keep Cantu ahead of Giles, I still think Giles should be added to tier two, and Roberts should lead tier 3.

Cano should be dropped from that spot, and to me all the guys after Roberts are all about the same. Some will hit a couple more HRs while sacrificing SBs, some will steal more while giving up power, some add avg etc.. they're all of about equal value. If you don't end up with a top 6 or so 2B, don't even worry about it until late rounds.

Too much love for Utley, he's had one strong season and it completely outpaced everything predicted for him by his minor league stats. I really think people are going to be burned by him if they are taking him in the first 2 rounds.

The way I see it is you are taking a risk on him in the 2nd round, if you are correct and he turns into a consistant stud then you got him where he should be drafted, if you are wrong and he slips then you lose by taking him early. At best you break even and there is a good chance you lose, thats not a good bet.

Kent was just about as productive if not more so than Soriano last year. Kent has gained a lot more protection while Soriano moved to a horrible offensive team in a horrible ballpark.

I have never been really high on Giles. I don't like his value that much in the leadoff spot.
