There are always those players that get drafted a lot later than they should. Examples: Scott Podsednik, Roy Halladay. Which players do you see this happening to?

Lance Berkman becuase of the injury..(But he could be ready to play two weeks into the start of the season)
Preston Wilson because of injury concerns...

Both are tremendous value depending on how late you can grab them.. ;-D

Juan Uribe (sometimes, though recently I've seen people start to overrate him), Ray Durham (always), Khalil Greene (if the league overrates Crosby, he usually gets forgotten) off the top of my head right now. Mike Adams (almost always unless you have a crazy closer run). Also Coco Crisp and sometimes Jason Bay.

How can you argue that Podsenik is 13th or 14th round value when Crawford goes second round in every draft?

2004 Stats:

Carl Crawford .295/11/55/59
Scott Posdenik .244/12/39/70

Granted, that 50 point swing in average is significant, but is it worth the difference of 12 rounds?? I don't think so. You may argue that Crawford is on an upward trend, but that trend would not make him that much better to warrant this 12 round gap. Either drop Crawford a round or two, or understand that Posednik is a viable 8th round candidate.

Scott Podsednik in round 12, 13, and 14 is just dumb. If your league has SBs he's gold, basically 2 guys.
