  1. The Dee Gordon pick is a potential steal. I’ve seen him go 7th round in a 20-team dynasty draft and 5th round in a 16 team dynasty draft in the past month. Especially in a non-OBP league the guy has the wheels to turn in a high babip campaign along with tons of steals and a modicum of runs scored.

  2. No Desmond? I know the shine is off some, but give him to me after RD 20 or so…

  3. I don’t understand how Yunel Escobar is so low. How can he not be counted on for a 280/350/400 line? He’ll probably be better than that too. Plus with Corey Patterson not batting behind him for half the year, he’ll probably be driven in a lot more considering the Jay’s lineup has improved so much. Even if he misses a few games is he not still more valuable then Jimmy Rollins or a complete unknown?

  4. Was going to say the same thing. The guy is leading off, has a reputation for staying healthy, and on a fairly good offensive club. I think he’d be a steal going that late.

  5. Yunel goes so late because it’s a fantasy draft and he isn’t that valuable in fantasy. .290, 11HR, 77R, 48 RBI and 3SB. yawn. I’ll take him in the 15th or so because he is a pretty solid player but he really doesn’t offer much. Aybar put up similar stats but stole 27 more bases. He might be my target this year because I dislike most of the early/mid rd SS’s. too mediocre for what the stats they bring to the table.

  6. Aybar doesn’t even come close to the OBP skills Yunel has. I reall dont think an .800 OPS is a stretch for him if he’s healthy all year, and scoring close to 100 runs if he’s leading off in that new lineup.

  7. kab21 if you decide to pick your shortstop after tulo, ramirez, and reyes are off the board, you should be hoping for .290 11HR 77R 48RBI 3SB (even though i think yunel is capable of way more this year, like .280, 17HR, 80+R, 60 RBI, 8SB)
    If you don’t pick your shortstop early the goal is maximization.

  9. Desmond’s 20-30 SB’s 12-15 homers and guaranteed starting job make him very draft-able late to me. Now he is off being called a Sophomore you can expect a .260 BA and more power upside as well.
