Pierre needed 700 at-bats to reach 3 home runs in '06, Ellsbury is already there. Hanley isn't in this conversation because he's miles above Crawford and Reyes in fantasy. The argument really is that if those guys get drafted that high and routinely put up numbers that match Ellsbury's current pace, shouldn't he go that high as well? The logical answer is no, taking him in the first 3 rounds is insane, but if he does end up with like 120 R, 12 HR, 75 RBI, 50 SB, .295, he could be preranked as a top 25 guy in expert rankings, regardless of the Cafe consensus viewing that as asinine.
