HELP! My Pick in Minor League Draft (1st Round)

Postby MG4hand4 » Tue Feb 05, 2008 7:19 pm

Ok It is my pick in our 12-team H2H Dynasty League Draft. We kept 22 MLB players plus 9 MiLB players from last season. Here is my roster as of now...
C- McCann
1b- Howard
2b- cano
SS- Furcal
3B- ARod
OF- Holliday
OF- Hart
OF- Hawpe
DH- Butler
Bench- Cuddyer
Bench- Willingham
Bench- Y. Escobar
SP- Bedard
SP- Halladay
SP- Shields
SP- Young
SP- Weaver
SP- Snell
SP- Morales
SP- Capuano
RP- Street
RP- Corpas
and my minor League Roster:
C- J.R. Towles
Of- Carlos Gomez
OF- Schafer
P- Adenhart
P- Hurley
P- Greg Smith
P- Greg Reynolds
P- Niemann
P- Humber
Our draft is seven rounds and we can pick 3 MLB Players and 4 MiLB Players. I have the fifth pick, and I'm on the clock!
Here is how the first four picks have gone so far:
Team1: Joe Savery (Surprising)
Team2: David Price
Team3: Matt Laporta
Team4: Rick Porcello
MY PICK:
Team6:
Team7:
Team8:
Team9:
Team10:
Team11:
Team12:

I have done EXTENSIVE research on all of the players available, (especially ones from the 2007 MLB Amateur Draft) and I STILL need your help!
Here is who I have narrowed it down to:
Ross Detwiler P WAS
Jarrod Parker P ARI
Mike Moustakas SS/3B KC
Also available are:
EVERYONE not draft from the 2007 Draft plus MiLer Faustino De Los Santos, and MLers Matt Kemp and Kosuke Fukudome. No pitchers available now are worthy of this pick.
PLEASE give me an idea of who you would take in this spot depending on my team and a brief reason why. I will help anyone elses post and I will update this draft as it continues!
Remember I only have til around 2 AM ET TONIGHT!!!

PLEASE RESPOND or PM me...

Joe Savery :-b

Even though you have no place to play him, I would take Matt Kemp. Why? He's the best player out there. Make a trade to make room for him. If you don't want to do that and you want a minor leaguer I would take Moustakas.

Personally, I would take Jason Heyward if I were you. I think he'll be the best player coming out of 2007 draft, when all is said and done.

Otherwise, I'd take Moustakas.

If you want a MLBer this year, Kemp is a fine choice.

And while Savery should have gone at least 12-20 picks later, I really, really like him as well. Team1 must be a Phillie homer I presume.

Thank you everyone for your insight on which player to select with my first overall pick. I am happy to report that the overwhelming response I received about Matt Kemp gave him a clear advantage in my eyes. I drafted Kemp with the 5th overall selection, and I couldn't be happier.
So again thank you, but there are more rounds than just ONE! Here is a rundown of the (Weird, Surprising) Draft thus far. I have the next pick so help me out again!!
Updated 2008 Draft:
1.1 Joe Savery
1.2 David Price
1.3 Matt LaPorta
1.4 Rick Porcello
1.5 MY PICK- Matt Kemp
1.6 Troy Patton
1.7 Matt Wieters
1.8 Hiroki Kuroda
1.9 Kazuo Fukumori
1.10 Brandon Lyon
1.11 Kosuke Fukudome
1.12 Brandon Morrow
2nd Round
2.1 Mike Moustakas
2.2 Jair Jurrjens
2.3 Ross Detwiler
2.4 Ervin Santana
2.5 Josh Vitters
2.6 Jarrod Parker
2.7 ON THE CLOCK
2.8 MY PICK!!!!

So here is my thought process now...
A) I'm not taking a MLB Hitter because my roster is full in that aspect.
B) I really want a MLB Starting Pitcher
C) I also really like a MiLB Hitter
Here is who I have narrowed my choices between:
1. Shawn Hill- Injury Risk/High Reward. For some reason I really like this pick.
2. Jason Heyward- The man can hit! I've seen videos of him, and he plays for my Braves. I have a man-crush, but I think he might sneak back to me.
3. Andy Sonnanstine- Just reading some stuff on here makes me like Sonny a little bit
4. Faustino De Los Santos- Could be up quick? Like his stuff...
5. Gil Meche- Solid SP with sorry team, I dunno what to make of him.
Others worth considering:
Michael Burgess, Angel Villalona, Desmond Jennings, Beau Mills, Blake Beaven, Daniel Cortes, Neftali Feliz

Take a look at my roster first and let me know what you think. I will update this as soon as the guy in front of me goes...
Again Thanks for your support and hopefully we'll get the right one here.

I love the Joe Savery pick.

I'd go with Heyward here. ;-D

I think it has to be Heyward. Hill should be there coming back shouldn't he. I can't imagine he is that high on others lists.
