    kemp or cano?

    Kemp by a lot. Upside wise he may very well end up being the best player in baseball. A 300/30/110/25 line wouldnt shock anyone. Canos upside is the same if you chop those 25 steals off. Position scarcity is a myth for amateurs.

    • Position Sxarcity is for amateurs when it's a minimal gain ... Cano is the best 2B in baseball by a country mile and is also my 3rd rated player overall! If i am picking at #3 the only reason im not taking him is if Cabrera, or Braun are there! Trout is the sophmore slump waiting to happen! OF is crazy deep. Pick Cano!

    • i agree with the projections not with your philosophy. pick a random round compare the 2b that goes that rd vs the OF that goes that round in a given draft. it wont even be close. if i dont get cano in my draft i prob just throw in the towel and go with a sleeper like rutledge. guys like pedroia and zobrist have similar adps as guys like bruce and ellsbury. i dont think they are close ignoring positions. weeks/uggla going when guys like willingham rios go etc...

      • Depends on the format. In any real (12-16) team league you're going to have fill in guys. Position scarcity just means you are purposely picking inferior players. Keep it simple, fourth overall round 1 and two. Cano and McCutchen (being generous on mccutchen lasting that long) won't out produce Kemp and kinsler. Tiers are legit, straight scarcity isn't.
