Me, Elsewhere: Life Is Just a Fantasy

Does anyone even remember Aldo Nova these days? Anyway, my latest look at the BP Kings draft is up at Baseball Prospectus. My first pick? Kyle Blanks, believe.

  1. Scutaro ahead of Everth? Want to explain that to me? Really, I’m just asking … is a “rules of the game” or are you down on Everth?

  2. It’s a risk management thing. Scutaro has more proven on-base skills and is more reliable defensively. Everth has higher upside, but this is a league where at most the top 240 players in baseball are kept in a given year. For as much as I like Everth, I’m just not sure he’s going to be *that* good, and if he is, I’m not sure it will happen right away. Therefore I went with the player who I expect to have better short-term value.
