Fantasy Baseball: Early Mock Draft-Round 2, Pick 8

The time has come to draft some starting pit.....nonono...speed. The choice here would be very easy had Jose Reyes shown he was healthy at the end of the season. Then again, he probably would have been selected by now. So I am going to draft Rays outfielder Carl Crawford.

In his 7 seasons with the Rays, Crawford has average 50+ SBs per season, and he stole 60 bases in 2009- a career high. In addition to the 60 SBs, Crawford chipped in with 15 HRs, 68 RBI and 96 runs scored. He also hot .305-.364-.452-.812 for the season.

Crawford will be a free agent at the end of the 2010 season, so he should put together another fine season in his walk year. The free agent class of 2011 is stocked, so Crawford will be looking to top his 2009 season.

Can he go 20-80-70 in 2010??
