I would grab Mesa. ;-)
Show your league how confident you are in your drafting abilities, that you can toy with them.


Ok j/k. Helton or RJ. Helton the safe pick. Why you not hot on him?


I was thinking about going with a crazy pick and toying with them but these guys learned quickly last year. :-o

I like Helton a lot. I just have a weird feeling about him. Coors is great and so is the talent. I think that the back, knee, and lack of protection in the lineup just scare me.

How many teams are there?

What are the categories?

If it's OBP or OPS, you have to take Helton here. Even if it's standard, I'd take Helton.

Or, you can try to grab a Teixeira along with Santana, on the way back.

I'd go with Crawford. Other than Helton's BA, he's just your average 30-100-100 guy like Aubrey Huff. He is consistent, which is a positive, but I'd still go with Crawford.

Sorry. 6X6 with all the regulars plus TB and CG. I am thinking about Crawford on the way back but Cabrera would be tempting. :-°

You say TB. Helton was 7th in TB with 339. You can't pass him now, a 5 catergory out of 6 guy.

That's the way I would go. Not bad to build your team around a top ace.

Well, since you started my congratulatory thread despite my 999 posts, I figure I can spend my thousandth post on you.

I like what Schmidt can do this year. Maybe I'm overvaluing him. He's 32 and been worked a lot the last three years, but he's got numbers I like. He's consistant, and he's on a team that will contend for the division title (an intangible that I feel is very important).

I understand that Santana is the big name in the game right now since he's 25 with a year of gaudy numbers behind him, but I have a bad feeling about him. He cannot produce that year again, and I don't know what that will do to the psyche of a 25-year old who pitched 50% more innings last than he's ever pitched in one season before (and just re-upped with a contract a lot cheaper than he could have got).

All of that being said, I know that Schmidt hasn't gone in the first round of any draft I've seen. If you think you can get him second round, than maybe you should take a hitter (Helton) and grab Schmidt coming home.
