    What to do with the 36th and 37th pick....?

    No, it's not. Spending a third or even fourth round pick on an unproven player such as Lawrie is stupid. Even drafting Bruce (who I like) that high is bad news. He doesn't steal bases and he doesn't hit for AVG. In addition, he is a nightmare to own as one of the streakiest players of all time.

    • Jay Bruce's batted ball profile showsa player who will likely see an average spike and he .281 in 2010. Lawrie has superstar potential and he already showed at the big league level. If it's a free league I play to win if it's a money league I play it safer but Lawrie is probably somebody I'd target no matter what and I'm not a fan of drafting youth for fantasy

      • You just can't spend a third round pick on a player who hasn't even played a full season in the MLB. So what? Jay Bruce hit .281 in 2010. He hit .256 last year, and has a career average of .256 as well. In addition, he doesn't steal bases, making him a terrible choice for a 3rd/early 4th round pick. This is the position where you want to take proven players at thin positions that will help out in atleast 4 categories.
