If a player who is yet to play an entire season is not worthy of dethroning a "proven" big league player, why is Josh Beckett getting so many serious looks? Or why should Miguel Cabrera garner a significant draft bid.
And what were people thinking when they took Prior last season ?
Your points do hold true on occation. But you have to have faith in certain young players if you want to have consistant success in fantasy baseball.

If we are going to" Reach", then I say that because of his possible chance that he gets the "green light" this season, that Thome will get 20 steals, and therefore be the undisputed #1 1B pick.

Mr.Cocky! wrote:All I am saying, is that with Crawford you know what you are getting, a ton of SB's. With Byrd, we are not sure what we are getting, because he has never had a full season as a starter.
