Sweeney

Is he extreamly underrated or am I missing something. Helton seems to go 1st round in every draft I have seen. By no means am I saying Sweeney is as good as Helton but I believe he is better than alot of 1st basemen taken ahead of him. Helton's numbers this year, 12 hr, 58 rbi, 335 ang. Sweeney, 12 hr, 50 rbi, 321 avg. Is there that big of a differance that Sweeney drops so many rounds lower than Helton?

i think it is because he plays for the Royals...who get no respect at all.

It's the Royals thing, and the fact his lineup isn't nearly as good as Colorado's. But another huge reason is....

Sweeney missed like 30 games last year, which hurt his fantasy value, and he has been dinged up all year and missing a few games a month.
