Cafe Consensus Rankings: 24th Pick

Postby GiantsFan14 » Thu Feb 20, 2014 5:25 pm

Darvish is the second pitcher off the board as he benefitted greatly with the addition of the Astros to the AL West striking out 52 Astros in 35 innings. The first pitcher in awhile who could challenge 300 strikeouts and as we're getting into hitters with a few question marks.

Results so far:
1. Mike Trout, OF
2. Miguel Cabrera, 3B
3. Paul Goldschmidt, 1B
4. Andrew McCutchen, OF
5. Carlos Gonzalez, OF
6. Ryan Braun, OF
7. Robinson Cano, 2B
8. Adam Jones, OF
9. Chris Davis, 1B
10. Clayton Kershaw, SP
11. Hanley Ramirez, SS
12. Edwin Encarnacion, 1B/3B
13. Prince Fielder, 1B
14. Joey Votto, 1B
15. Bryce Harper, OF
16. Troy Tulowitzki, SS
17. Adrian Beltre, 3B
18. Jacoby Ellsbury, OF
19. Evan Longoria, 3B
20. David Wright, 3B
21. Yasiel Puig, OF
22. Carlos Gomez, OF
23. Yu Darvish, SP

I went Kipnis here. The next arm on my board is Wainwright. Am kinda surprised you added Strasburg next.

I've actually got Scherzer as my #3 sp. His breakout started happening in the second half of 2012, I think he's a top ace. As far as this pick goes though I'd lean Rios over Kipnis. Then Kipnis at 25 followed by Stanton's (still waiting) 40 HR potential.

If Stanton was batting cleanup for the Red Sox I'd have him go in round 1 though :-b

I went Kipnis, but at this point (actually a few picks earlier) they have about the same value and who I draft is far too dependent on who my first pick was.

Seems about the right spot for him, I've taken him lower, and this is around where he is on lists I've seen.
