Why is Iguchi so low?

He is a reliable option that may not have a ton of upside but he is gonna get you more runs than most of these guys and he won't hurt you in any area.

1. Cano has to go up a tier.
2. Drop Kendrick to giles spot.
3. Drop giles one tier.
4. Iguchi goes up a tier ahead of kent.
5. Barfield has to go up a tier ahead of kinsler.

I believe the list should take better shape after these moves.

I'll take Burke before Kennedy or Polanco. Castillo is far too high as is Durham, Uggla, Kent, and Giles. Kendrick at #2 is quite a stretch as well.

IMHO, Uttley is right on, but I think it would be Uggla and Cano right behind,, I also think Cantu will bounce back this year,after those four it doesnt matter unless your needs are specific and need to target draft
If there is baseball in heaven!!!! Be very aware of the starting lineup

I'm curious to know what people think of Cantu this year. I was extremely high on him last year, but it's hard to tell what he might do this year after missing so much of last season. He's still only 25, and the Tampa offense looks to be a little better this year than last. If he doesn't crack the top 13 or 14 2B taken off the board I'm worried I'll have him in about all of my leagues. Does anyone think .280, 22 HR, 90 RBI 85 R is out of the question for him this year?

This is the spot

Postby tluchak » Wed Feb 14, 2007 5:42 pm

where some people are seemingly dedicated to making a huge blunder. In several mocks I have done people are paying over 15 bucks for Durham. Ridiculous. Yes he blasted 26 last year - but if you are banking on those numbers again you are gonna sorely disappointed. There is a glutton of solid 2B this year. Once Utley is gone I wouldnt even draft one until the end in an auction draft as long as everyone else has filled up their spots. Burke could easily be as productive as Roberts or Uggla. And DeRosa - if you spend more than a buck for this guy you are truly a fool. Dont be seduced by the lineup and his little burp in numbers last year. Let me put it this way - you cant blow your draft by grabbing one of the "lower" tier guys for cheap late but you could certainly blow it by paying double digits for an also-ran. I will also side bet with anyone that Barfield puts up better numbers than Uggla, Roberts or Durham.
