Hey, can't I both read comments here and watch Olbermann? And I will probably do both after the 4th.

Good point Alex. Though I personally believe I am more compelling than Keith Olbermann, but I am a bit biased on that issue.

It's okay, Mike. How many people are going to watch Keith Olbermann after Nov. 4?

I wonder if anyone else is reading this besides me and Alex.

Alex Rios is the 6th Round selection of Patton & Co. in the League of Champions 2009 Mock Draft. Rios earned his spot with another solid year. I am worried about the drop in power with an associated increase in strikeouts. On the other hand, he significantly increased his stolen bases. I do not think it is a fluke; to the contrary, I think Rios is trying to become a different player, utilizing his athleticism to help his team win.

I do not think Rios is going to get significantly better, but I do think the speed will stay with a small increase in home runs. A healthy Jays lineup will benefit him as well, and in 5x5, it is hard to ignore his run scoring.

Yeah, Jeff, I agree that Rios is last. But I would go to $30 on Rios.

For starters if Rios is batting in the middle of the order all year he should get another 15-20 RBI, and that'll help his march towards $30.

Upton, Rios or Granderson? Are they a tier? Discuss amongst yourselves. I would go for Rios last of these 3 and I wouldn't pay more than $25. Only 7 more homers, 2 more steals in 200 more at bats in 2007.

$35 means that someone bid $34 probably. That means two owners were totally out of line. Wow! I guess there's more than one guy expecting him to bump up the average to .310 the HR to 35 and the steals to 25. Good luck!

Rios went for an absurd $35 in the Sportsline expert auction. I like Rios, but he'd have to go nuts to earn $35 in 5x5. Which I don't think he will.

The Jays aren't shopping him, but if S-F was willing to give up Cain or Lincecum, wouldn't you listen?
