My second pick: Soriano, Beltre, or Gagne

League counts OBP and save percentage in addition to traditional 5x5. Already have Bonds. What should I do next. We need 2 guys at each infield position so I like to target that early, but save percentage makes Gagne very valuable....help please.

if you can get soriano, get him... he is the best in a thinner field than closers and 3b. you can get a mora or a ramirez in later rounds, and you can get lidge in the next round, who actually might be more valuable than gagne this year cause of all his k's.

Take Soriano. He's going to have a better year than last. I would rather have Lidge than Gagne anyway.

I would also go with Soriano. If he bounces back, he can help in many cats, much more than most 2nd basemen.
My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Gagne. With OBP and Sv% as categories Gagne is more valuable than Soriano IMO.

Traditional 5x5 I would go Soriano, but here I think you've got to go with Gagne. But its very close still.

Soriano, even though I am a big gagne fan. You need to fill one of your 4 MIF spots.

I'd drool over taking Soriano in the second round ;-D
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
