@CollegeWolf Thanks! And I concur with that statement...

@TreyThompson I agree that PEDs don't turn independent-league players into MVPs, but your "reasonable drop off" projection seems pretty optimistic. I think that's a best-case scenario for Braun. Neither of us knows how long Braun did PEDs or how it impacted his stats. For all we know, dude was just Jay Bruce on roids for his all-pro years (not a bad comp by any means, but not on the level of Braun's best days either). If he hits those projections you set forth, then yeah, he'll be a early second round-caliber player. I think he'll fall short enough of that mark to make him a distinct overpay, but we will have to see.
As for the Adams/Andrus deal, if you have a capable SS filling in for Andrus, it's not a bad move (though I'm an admitted Adams fan).

@TreyThompson He's a bad investment because he was a first or second round pick in every league. He can't steal bases anymore either, so he's basically Jay Bruce (and that's only if his power sustains). For all we know, this dude was PED'ing it up his entire big league career.
Here's another thing, while the thumb may be something no one saw coming, fatigue (which donnypump referred to) and a "weaker" body may mean more injuries.
I just think that a second round pick was way too high for Braun. Which is the reason for the comments about him being a terrible investment. We'll see what's up...
@TreyThompson One big game does not a worthy-investment make.
Thanks for the catch. Fixed.

Surprised you like Strasburg. I love the talent, but his violent delivery scares me (Mark Prior 2.0). Harper I like, but I think 25/15 your best bet (and that's if he finally plays a full season). Third round is a fair spot for him I think.
