The big advantage with having 3 first rounders (Which I have now) is I can stock pile on good SP's like Cahill, Bucholz, Shields, and Garza types of talent, while still bringing Lee, Liriano and Anderson into the rotation as keepers.
And to finish this chapter, Yes, I Iike Stubbs better too, but not a first round snub better. What Bruce lacks in the SB department, he picks up in the other departments. Hopefully.
P.S. Now someone just offered me Gallardo and a 5th for Bruce and my 8th. That is this managers highest remaining pick, so maybe someone else can give me a tad better. Although Gallardo is coming around.
Not a huge Bruce fan, as you can see from my beating on him incessantly. He hasn't even eclipsed the 30 HR barrier yet, so I'm not ready to christen him as the next Dunn with AVG...
Still, I'd keep him over Gallardo in that deal. A 5th round pick in your league won't have much of a surprise factor to it the way some 1st round picks can, and Gallardo's walk rate will stop him from becoming a star.
