top 5 rounder next year?

I haven't thought about next year's rankings at all yet but I can say that I most definitely would draft him in the 5th round of drafts next year if he's still sitting there. I'm not sure yet how much higher I'd go but he'll be 24 years old next year and has already done some pretty amazing things at the MLB level. And I'm saying that as a disappointed owner of him in 2 leagues this year.

The kid apparently quit running @ 22 years old. I'm not saying he will never swipe a bag, but the data is there to support 2-3 SB's a year. Big Papi did that. 

 

If he's a .260/.270 hitter, at cleanup for an amazing lineup mind you, (which won't last much longer) he's not the guy we thought he was. SS aside, his numbers are pedestrian when the lineup and spot in the order are taken into account. 80-20-80-2 is every day WW fodder, not the next big thing. 

 

I get he's 24, has the pedigree and accomplishments at a young age... but this is two years running where he simply won't run... feels more like Starlin Castro than the next superstar.

I wouldn't use a 1st round pick or pay through the roof in auction for him. Though he is still young and numbers last two years would likely be a bit better had he not missed time. If you can get him at the right spot or price next season I still think you have to give him a shot. There are quite a few decent floor SS's these days, you could go with another option later in rounds or cheaper, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him take a small step next year but who knows. The lack of steals is a let down, not that any of us expected him to be Trea, but you'd like to see at least 12 or more from this guy. Just hope next season he can stay healthy the whole year, give us a better idea what his season numbers would look like if he avoids the DL.

The Astros don't need to run. Altuve leads the team with 14 and Bregman is the only other one with double digits with 10 going into tonight. Seems more like a team concept so you can't really fault the player.

 

He should get as much as Bregman.
