My minor league draft pick is coming up soon Who do I take?

Postby powenM » Mon Feb 26, 2007 6:40 pm

Okay this 20team Dynasty league 5 Rd prospect draft only includes prospects in the minors. They cannot even have had a sniff of MLB(So forget guys like Andrew Miller(Det))

Im(Boston) 2 picks away & I know who the guy b4 me wants, as he sent me a list( Humberto Sanchez or Jair Jurrjens).

With this in mind who should i be aiming at? Has someone fallin?

Guys like Reid Brignac, Andy Laroche, Andrew McCutchen,Carlos Gonzalez come to mind. Is there someone else?

My team is also below(after draft) if that will help.

Give me more then one as, not only do I not know what the guy 2 picks ahead of me will take, but Id also like to know who I should take for my next pick also(which will be 6pks after that). please rank them.

THx for your help!

McCutchen seems like the best pick to me for a hitter. If you wanted to go the pitching route, then Kershaw or Hochevar (lean to Kershaw).

Wow this is hough Ive been juggling between McCutchen & LaRoche.

I like Kershaw but I think Id have a shot at him my next pick.

Could I get a nice list so I'll be ready for my next pick too.

Kershaw will definitely be gone by your next pick. LaRoche is also a great add, I forgot about him. If you want to send me an email, I can send you my cheat sheet.

i'd DEFINETLY take McCutchen with your 1st and grab Kershaw wit hthe 2nd.

hell if Kershaw's gone buy the 2nd u might want to tab Erbe instead.

that would give u a nice 1-2 of potential imo.

Of the guys avialable grab:

1)Andrew McCutchen
2) Andy Laroche
3) Kershaw

Next round (if those guys are gone) see if you can grab:

1) Fernando Martinez
2) Tabata

Sorry, I didn't read the no ML games part.

I think you HAVE TO take Clayton Kershaw with your first rounder. I think the kid could be a once in a decade kind of ace.

2nd rounder:
I'd target Carlos Gonzalez, then Andy LaRoche.

I just don't like McClutchen as much as I see him as a cross between Corey Patterson and Willie McGee. ;-)

When in a minors draft, you have two ways of doing it.

A) Picking the best player available
B) Picking the player best suited for your team

I would go with plan B in this situation, but luckily plan A and B coincide. The best player available is Andrew McCutchen. He is a stud. He also fits your needs, as your OF is relatively weak. Clayton Kershaw is a fantastic prospect, but I am not quite sold on him. If you could get him with the second round pick, I would definately do that. Here is how I would go as far as picks.

Round One:
McCutchen/Martinez

Round Two:
Kershaw/Lofgren

I am really high on Lofgren. Another nice selection here would be Luke Hochever. While he may not be ready to start the year in the majors, I can definately see him coming up in September.
