The other factor that might come into play is that Cozart is heading into his first year of arbitration?

Started running drills this week ... won't be back this season, but will be ready by the beginning of 2016.

Reds will have a very interesting decision.  If they believe the numbers from the 53 games Cozart played in this year, it's a no-brainer.  He's far and away the superior defender at SS, and his offense numbers for 2015 are within shouting distance of Eugenio Suarez' excellent season.

But ... if you don't believe the short sample 2015 as a measure of Cozart's prowess, and instead look back to 2011-2014 ... it becomes the classic bat versus glove question.  Tough to see Suarez sitting after the year he's having though ...

Three year clock starts in our league as soon as someone's drafted ... so even a super-stud HS-er is a real rarity.  It was a head turner when Brendan Rogers got taken.

WOW. I have literally never heard of ANY of those guys. Seriously, not a one.

What round did Mo'ne Davis go?

The home league BobinTx and I play in is brutally deep.  Every year we have up to a dozen people we need to get Onroto to add to their database before our commissioner can add in all the ULTRA picks.

Our rules are you can draft anyone in the world who's not in an AL system.

Thus ... you had Dillon Tate going in our 3rd round ... and Ian Happ, Dansby Swanson, Lourdes Guirrel, Daniel Carbonel,  Yulieski Gourrial, Richie Martin, Alex Bregman, Brendan Rogers(!!!),  Gio Brusa, Kyle Funkhowser, and Dian Toscano all going before the end of round 9.

Suarez wasn't going to evade our net for long ...

Thanks Tex, it's nice to hear that someone else has heard of the guy. I looked, I took him in the 8th round of the PCL reserve draft. I think the reason I waited until the 8th is because that is the round where the salaries change to $2, and I wanted him cheap. I'm pretty sure he could put up Cozart-ian numbers playing everyday, at least, but apparently Zach is a wiz with the leather.

As a late reserve pick, Suarez is still pretty nice.  If nothing else, Brandon Phillips is no guarantee to hold up for 162 games, and Suarez power stroke would play pretty nice in Great American.

In my home league, Suarez didn't make it out of the 2nd round ... and I'd have taken him in the 3rd if he'd come back to me (didn't have a first round pick, and took O'Brien in the 2nd).

I outsmarted myself and took Eugenio Suarez with a late reserve pick, thinking that Cozart would continue to be a terrible hitter and the Reds would turn to him. Stupid fantasy baseball.

$2 CBS, $4 LABR, $3 Tout.  Probably earned his bid from most auctions last night, with his 2 HR and and an SB.  All else is gravy.
