Crawford - 5x5 League 12 teams

I think Josh and Slomo are both right. If there is one player who is on the verge of fantasy superstardom it is Crawford. He won't hit as many HR's as he matures as Beltran, but he should develope into a 25 HR/50 SB type eventually, plus with a better average than Beltran. The best thing about him is he improved his power while improving his average at the same time, which tells me his growth potential is great. Definite first round material, but most of us would not have to take him that high.

Pierre is very undervalued in my opinion as Slomo stats because SB's are undervalued. Most people are power obsessed, much to their team's detrement. I always scoop up the Pierre types and trade them away once I have SB's nailed down. SB's are perhaps the hardest category to catch-up in, which people forget.

As I recall, Ricky went a couple spots after Honus Wagner, but just ahead of Willie Keeler because of the power-speed combo.

I'm thinking Crawford stays at leadoff for the majority of the season. I think Gaithright will struggle and bat 9th most of the season. Fill me in guys, if he really is going to bat second. Or is it something we should watch for in spring.


This why I value him less than many others here. I can't imagine 80 RBI, not to mention 75 not even if he hits second. With 60-65 being more likely IMO, this is not as much a value pick as a Todd Helton.

Most of these projections are somewhat higher than my projections. I have Crawford at .280/.320/.455 95 Runs 14 HR 60 RBI 45 SB. I think he will definitely be gone by the end of the second, I would rather have Ichiro myself and I wouldn't look to Crawford until the mid-3rd.
