Im not sure what to make of your comment, Lofunzo. Should someone never look at later options? If I think that Boone and Giles will put up roughly the same value, yet one can be had 3-5 rds later, should I not go after the one with the lowest cost?
Thanks for the thumbs down. I was actually kind of agreeing with you. I am saying that, for the most part, there are always later options. I like Giles but don't think that he will approach Boone for next year. If you can get another player instead of Boone in the 2nd round and then get Giles later, then do it. If you don't get Giles, then you will be sorry, though. You have a chance to 100% get a good 1 (Boone). If you wait for Giles, then you might not get him. Again, there are always later options. It's kind of like the Pierre/Crawford scenario. You could either get Pierre earlier or take the chance that you can get Crawford later.
...there isnt a chance in hell I will draft Pierre in the 3rd rd where he is being taken in most drafts. I will target Crawford later, and even Sanchez later still.

Until someone takes Pierre in the 3rd and Crawford in the 4th round.
Point being, you're setting yourself up to fail (sooner or later) with this strategy. You can't keep letting players slide for the better value, because inevitably you're gonna be left with nothing!
You can have Sanchez in the 15th round (of course, you'll probably think that's too early too). You've already lost out on Stolen Bases because some other guy picked up Pierre and Crawford back to back.
