I don't draft pitchers in the first round either.
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.

I'll be more than glad to take Johan in the first round. I'll take him as early as 2nd overall. He's a proven stud who has finshed top 3 for the last 3 years. No reason not to take him.

Do you not think Santana is a top 5 pick? Blanket statements like this or

I rank him lower because hitters are more valuable than pitchers!


make me discount the opinion. What does this mean anyway - hitters are more valuable then pitchers? In 5x5 there are 5 catagories for pitchers and 5 for hitters. For a majority of hitters I can find a pitcher worth more.[/quote]

Not a bad top 25, but there's no way I'm going after Reyes in the first round, let alone at a #4 pick. Santana is worthy of being taken in lieu of where this fella suggest Reyes should be drafted. Hafner is quite low here while Bay and Holliday are a tad underrated here.

Hanley as a late 2nd round pick over Holliday? Gee, I'm rooting for Julio Lugo to smack 15 HR's and steal 60 bases and then Lugo would be a top 20 draft pick in 2008 automatically. Sheesh.

Didn't Brady Anderson hit 50 HRs one year? I bet he went #1 the next year.

exactly... HOWEVER, a starting pitcher doesnt contribute to the category "saves," which makes hitters like pujols, beltran, soriano, etc.. far more valuable then ANY starting pitcher. ;-D
