Then he gets to pick again. So I see as having a top 4 pick to be a really big advantage this year. Some people want to limit the discussion to 3, but I think Cano really gives you an anchor at an ultra thin position. (I got Cano, Upton, AGone once, #5 got Pujols, Hamilton, Heyward - similar numbers from the three but I have 2B covered and 1B open.)

I picked 14 in the Pond Scum league and I didn't really feel like the guys I ended up picking were much better than the 25th guy picked so it is a really cruddy place to draft this year.
Ender wrote:The difference between Braun and MCab is $5. The difference between MCab and Cano is another $7. The difference between Cano and Fielder is like $3. He really does not belong in the same tier as MCab and Braun. He didn't get 100 RBI last year with an overproducing Jeter ahead of him. He is running less and less and he is hitting the ball on the ground more and more so I don't believe he will repeat the HR totals. So yeah a .315 AVG, 30 HR, 105 R, 95 RBI, 3 SB guy is valuable at 2B, but he is nowhere near what Braun is. Cano goes #4 because he is safe, not because he is one of the 4 best players in the fantasy game.
Pedroia's years in 2008 and 2011 were better for fantasy than any year Cano has had so I'm not even all that confident Cano will be the best 2B in baseball this year. I'd much rather have Pedrioa at $25 than Cano at $35 that is for sure.
