Where's Dice-K going in drafts

Postby Frances The Mute » Thu Mar 08, 2007 2:15 pm

I want him cause he's the fourth best pitcher in the world, but I don't want to reach. I'm thinking 4th round redraft for h2h leagues.

Not me. In my Yahoo leagues (drafted before spring training), people were taking him in the first 12. I think if you have him it's an excellent opportunity to trade him based on the hype.

The first 12? That's ridiculous. I've seen 6th to 7th round in most of my leagues.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

I dunno, I like the upside. Isn't there a positive historical trend of Japanese pitchers having great success in their first year in the MLB?

Not even counting that he throws a gyro-pitch (or something) that major leaguers have ever seen,

You're kidding right? He may turn out to be a nice pitcher, but he doesn't throw anything that people haven't seen before. The gyroball is a myth. It's just a fastball that doesn't spiral. I think Daisuke is extremely overrated here and elswhere.

I agree. I like the upside of a lot of people, so I think he's overhyped. There is no barometer to measure how good he can be, so taking him in the first couple rounds is not that smart.
