.311 AVG, 28 HR, 102 RBI, 75 Runs, and 2 SB. Those numbers for Butler are down a shade on everything but runs, and still he crushes Goldy in average, has a clear power edge in HR/RBI, loses a bit in runs and 10 or so SB. All told I have Butler slightly ahead of Goldy. Those are just my projections so they really mean nothing, I just think it was a risky pick taking him there. To be honest, I'm conservative with Goldy projections and I think you could end up with a great pick there, I just think you might have been able to wait a round to take him.
Eh. I think we're picking hairs then. There's no way Goldy would've made it back to me and I wanted him, especially after 5 first baseman were already taken. Give me a first basemen who has 30 HR/10 SB capability all day. The runs and rbi will come and he is a .275 hitter which doesn't kill you.
