Carl Crawford is definetley the biggest bet up there. Hes playin in a minature park now and i think that while his HR number will go up, the SB and Runs scored numbers that made him so fantasy valuable will drop drastically
wheres cliff lee? i would deff take him over matt holliday and david wright is always top 15 but he sucks every year. i remember one year he was 3rd and he was my first round pick and he was TERRIBLE. dont pick him
utley, felix, hanley. yes, hanley. i dont care about position scarcity. i dont think in any league i have played in the champion has had hanley. but they always have a big ticket first baseman and atleast one ace. pick a top first baseman in the first round and lincecum in the second.

?? Thats silly to associate Hanley with someone not winning the championship. I could probably find 1000 teams who had Albert Pujols who didnt win the Championship. I am sure countless teams have built a winner around Hanley. Its not about having the best at a certain position, its about having a solid roster that has a chance to win in all stats. And if the teams who did have Hanley didnt win the Championship its because they didnt find a subsitute when he got hurt.
The player i would least have on my roster would be Utley and any of those pitchers but thats only because i don't believe in drafting a SP that early. As for Utley i think he wont be as productive as he has in the past and is on the downward slope of his career.
