+1 (000,000!!) to this. If it's 8 teams, having Santana would be EXTREMELY handy.
so who are the consensus top 4 in an 8 team H2H league?
#1 is Pujols
#2 someone told me the guy prefers Soriano
Who are MY best 3 options in an 8 teamer behind Pujols?
It sounds like my best bet is Santana, followed by A-Rod... any thoughts? I've heard Reyes mentioned but I think he is getting a lo of hype more than anything... what sucks is that my draft is online so I have to be pretty prepared..
5x5 H2H, NK 10 tms
C- 1- Fielder 2- Carpenter 3- Wright SS- Desmond OF- J. Upton, Trout, Heyward UTL- Werth BN- E. Cab SP- Hamls, Gio, Latos, Tehran, D. Salzar, Lirano, Grza, Kluber, Lincum, Lacky RP- Cishek, Veras, Soria, Brothers, Hawkins DL- Crain
Draft the best player avalible for the first 4 rounds, and then start looking for positions you need. Unless you get good value on a top 3 Cather, wait a while and pick up a lower end guy. Don't take more than 1 pitcher in the first 7 rounds and then look to stock up.
That site has good free rankings that gives you all the hitters and pitchers so it's not separted by each position. The Cafe mock drafts that you can get by clicking Rankings on the side are helpful as well but they are people trying to build teams so it's not just pure rankings.
