First overall pick in Year 2 of keeper league??

Postby Flaherty04 » Mon Feb 16, 2004 4:51 pm

Alright fellas I need some advice....

Traditional 5x5, 10 team keeper league and each team keeps 5 players. I have the first overall pick. Theoretically, the top 50 players are off the board. Considering my keepers (Beltran, Thome, B Boone, Pierre, J Santana) I have narrowed my pick down to the following, how do you rank them?

V Wells, R Sexson, L Berkman, J Beckett, M Mulder, K Brown

Go with Mulder. You need SP and your keepers are mostly offense.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I would say Either Wells or Beckett. In 5X5 I like Beckett over Mulder.

You need pitching, but I would lean towards Wells since he has significantly more Value than any others on the board. Santana is solid, but not a staff Ace as of yet IMO. If you take Wells, at some point you will probably need to deal for a quality SP and if you do, you can probably pretty much have your pick if you need to deal Wells, provided he contiues to build on last season

Wells or Berkman. I like Berkman a wee bit better this year though.

Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
Otter: Germans?
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.

Beckett or Mulder just because you could use another starter.
