3rd pick... who??

Postby Red Sox Frizeak » Fri Feb 02, 2007 4:54 pm

im joining a fantasy baseball league that hasnt been setup yet but we are doing the draft soon and althouhg im not sure what the categories are, or all the positions i know it will look something like this..

R, H, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, K, BB, TB, AVG, OBP
IP, W, L, CG, SHO, SV, ER, K, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, K/9

with C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util, Util, Util, Util, Util, SP, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, RP, P, P, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL (based on last years settings)


well, this is a 6 man yahoo head to head league, so with the 3rd pick im not really sure who to choose.

the first pick will be pujols, then the second pick is looking like it will be ryan howard.

i am trying to decide between soriano and arod, or possibly someone else. im not a huge huge fan of soriano, and arod on his down year is top 6 pick, and with a good year again picking arod with the 3rd pick is great..

im just looking for people's opinions on who they think i should go with based on my leagues unusual formatting, and any advice would be great.

With the 2nd pick being Howard, A-rod is your next best pick.

Holy crap 8-o I thought 8 teamers were bad......


....sorry, I just couldn't imagine..... !+)


I guess to answer your question though, I would grab Arod if he was there.

With those pitching categories I might think about Johan Santana

It is a tough call between ARod and Soriano. I believe I would go with ARod though (if you dont want to consider Santana at all)

Howard #2 with those settings seems like a pretty bad pick to me, I'd have to do the math which I'm not really interested in doing but he K's too much and too much of his value is tied up into HR/RBI.

good points

Not bad for the thread starter though to have these options thanks to a Howard lover ahead of him
