    mike aviles is...

    I waited here in my 14 team head to head league until the end because there are only really just a handful of substantial 2nd basemen, & then after that then comes the drop & there are another 6-8 in that 200-275 range.
    Aviles is not too far removed from that group so using a higher pick for pitching depth I thought was a better idea.
    In that range you have excellent up & coming relievers like Kenley Jansen, Greg Holland, or an established one like Jonny Venters.
    Then there are several bounce-back starters there.
    Guys like Johann Santana, Carlos Zambrano, Edinson Volquez & Jair Jurrjens.
    Also in that area are solid choices like; Bud Norris, Justin Materson, Doug Fister, Trevor Cahill, & a bunch more.
    All more valuable than a mediocre 2nd baseman.
    Grabbing that guy for extra wins, saves, holds, innings & K's is far more preferable than wasting the pick on an only slightly better option than Aviles is in the low 300's.
    As long as you are strong around him you shouldn't feel muc of a loss. He is a solid choice there.
