I got him in the 10th round of a 14 team league.

Drafting Rios

Postby jaronson » Mon Mar 26, 2007 12:11 am

:-? I think it can be misleading to talk about what round you drafted a player in unless you also include how many teams are in the league (and we'll just assume you are in a Major League format).


With that said, I drafted Rios 95th overall in a 10-team league (That's the 9th round for those scoring at home.) Last week's ESPN Live Draft results had him 102nd overall.

On preview, thank you shoelessjoetara ;-D

I ended up w/ him in the 9th (100 overall). as a 3rd OF, I'm excited. He's killing the ball in ST, and I imagine he'll work his way up to the #2 slot quickly.

I would normally agree, but a staph infection isn't the same thing as a shoulder injury.

I think he'll bust out big time this year.

I am probably in the minority but I don't think he'll be a top 100 player. I just don't see him as a lock to go 20-20.

wouldn't the 95th pick in a 10 team draft be the 10th round. ;-)


I see Rios being the real deal. It was always said he just needed to develop the power stroke. It appears he has and he's been killing the ball in ST and BP. I think 20-20 is a real posibility and a 30-20 a decent possiblity. If he didn't play for Toronto I'd also say 30-30 would be possible. It's just too bad Gibbons is hitting him 6th instead of 2nd. If he was hitting 2nd he would post GREAT numbers in that lineup.

Eh, I hope he gets moved up once he starts off hot.

So how does Rios look so far? Looks like he picked up where he left off, still expecting a great year?

He needs to move back up the batting order to where he was hitting well.
