First round confusion

Postby Pete O » Tue Feb 17, 2004 9:39 am

My league counts OBP and Total Bases in addition to the traditional five categories of HR, RBI, Runs, AVG, and SB. I have the #4 overall and the first three are projected to be Arod, Vlad, and Pujols. Also, we have an interesting eligibility rule and if it is determined that a player will start the season at a new position, he is only eligible at the new position until he reaches 10 games at a different postition. That means Soriano will have OF eligibility only, until he reaches 10 games at 2B. Silly but that's the way it is. My question is which of these players is the best pick for me given these league rules: Bonds, Helton, Beltran, Soriano, or Nomar. I should also add that we need 2 players at every infield position, making position players more valuable.

Helton, he will dominate in avg and obp, and be pretty good in total bases, runs, rbi, and hr.

Counting OBP, nobody has a vote for Bonds?

couldn't agree more. Helton has to be the most valuable player in that league.
