Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

Good outfield. Rather than bank of one of your 2B or SS having a solid season, I would trade for a better option. I think the two players who are most overvalued in a possible trade are Sanchez and Hamilton. See if you can package them to land a top 5 2B or SS. As OF is so deep, you are generally better off trading any of your 4-7 OF to boost your weak infield.
1B Encarnacion (3B)
Util D. Brown (OF)
Util Belt (1B)
B: Victorino (OF), Utley (2B), Hardy (SS), Ramos (C)

His stock is low at the moment with his reluctance to test his leg, but this is a situation that can change quickly. I'd hang on if I drafted him since the talent is there, and no physical setback. If I didn't draft yet, I'd monitor the situation and hold off if he still hadn't gotten AB in spring training. I mean as good as he is, there are many other guys who could break with the big club and get off to a hot start.
In terms of expectations, hard to project full season since he may not break with the big club. He is a very good hitter, so .280+ is quite possible.. The power may not fully be there yet, and we may see some reluctance to run, but 20 HR and 10 SB seem possible. I can't predict the RBI/R because I have no idea where he might hit in the lineup.

Yeah, bench also lacks power. I'm debating whether I'd take Tulo 1 again at 10. I didn't want to take an OF there like Braun. I'm also not super happy with the Harper pick although I think there is upside there.

Tulo/Machado side wins by a lot. Why does one team have three SS? Reyes should be traded immediately as he is always an injury risk.

I don't have an issue with it as all three players should be replaceable. This is not likely to be a make or break trade.

3B? Bogaerts is a risky starting SS, and your backup there is not great. Liriano and Zimmerman worry me. I would trade either if possible to solidify your infield. Your offense has a lot of potential, though.
