I'm in a 10 Team, H2H, Points, Non-Keeper League and I have picks 1.10 & 2.1. I kind of like the bookends and figure that these players will go before my turn (not in order):
I'm leaning towards taking Nomar and Soriano. I'm a big believer in position scarcity. When looking at last years points totals, I noticed that the greatest discrepancy of position scoring between #1 and #10 is at SS (Even Catcher). Even if you throw out A-Rod's numbers. I think it would be great to shore up my middle infield and the with my next 2 picks grab the biggest bats around, presumably OF's.
if soriano is there at # 10 he is a must Draft. nomar is an ok pick, but i wouldnt take him there. i think that you should take a look at Pedro, who is very good value at # 11. but if i were you, i would take sosa. he came right out and said that he is gonna hit 60 HRs, and i believe him. i value tejada over nomar too. just my thoughts
If Soriano goes instead of Kent, do you think Kent at 2.1 would be a good value? I have to think his #'s are going to skyrocket in that park, with that Line-up.
Trevisc, the potential point differential at 2nd base would make it tough for me to ignore.
If Helton is still there, that's a no-brainer, he's my guy. Fantasy Points last year for Sosa were 515. For Kent, 501. Both had 108 RBI's. I've heard that Chicagi is supposed to be much improved but, again, the Juice-Box and Biggio, Bagwell, Berkman, etc..seems like more RBI potential. How many solo HR's did Slammy hit? Maybe about half? I'm just thinking that with the wealth of good OF's, securing a premier 2nd basemen sounds pretty good to me. Love the feedback!!
There is going to be a scoring change in regards to Pitchers. Last year was our first and pitching wasn't really equal to hitting. But its all relative. There were only 2 or 3 real studs and then the rest of the pack. I'm expecting to miss out on RJ and Schilling. Maybe I could just double up with Pedro and Zito, or 1 bat, 1 arm, but...
