    2nd pick suggestions...

    Hanley is the pick here for sure. I could make the arguement that he's the #1 pick.

    Hanley hit .342 in 09
    Hanley hit 33 HR in 08
    Hanley has stolen 50 bases twice in his career
    Hanley plays the thinnest position is Fantasy Baseball
    Hanley is only 27
    Hanley has never missed more than 20 games in a season

    Name another player that could do this....342 AVG..33HR..50SB......there isn't one

    Take Hanley and don't look back!

    • It's tough to go against Hanley as the number two pick,but Pujols is without question the number one, not Hanley. While it's true Hanley had a monster 2009, his overall numbers are slowly declining as the wear and tear of playing all those games you mentioned is taking it's toll. He may not steal 50 again and he certainly won't drive in 100 runs unless he drops in the batting order. Plus, it remains to be seen how losing Uggla effects his numbers too. That said, he's still a solid number two pick...for now.

      Since this is a keeper league, I would think seriously of taking M Cabrera at number two. He has the same BA, more HR and RBI's and will score almost as many runs. Then try to get Reyes at SS.
