Which OF to pick first?

Postby zebulon » Wed Feb 18, 2004 2:12 pm

Im in a 10 team H2H keeper league. We get to keep 5 players + a late round pick or rookie from the previous year.

My keepers are: Helton, Schmidt, J Vazquez, Piazza, Blalock, and Jose Reyes.

I have the 3rd pick in the draft and am most likely going to select an OF.

Which of the following choices do you think is best?

Berkman, Abreu, B Giles, Ichiro, Preston Wilson.

I was initially leaning toward Berkman, but am now actually considering taking Ichiro. I was pretty deficient in SBs last season and I think Ichiro would be a great addition to my team. I figure I can always get a cheap power hitter a little later.

Any thoughts?

I'm a little skeptical of Wilson. I know he had a monster season in Coors last year, but the fact remains that it was all Coors. His numbers aways from Coors are pretty average.

If I were in a Roto league, he would definitely be my top choice, but because of the weekly matchups in H2H, I think he will be an inconsistent performer.

Just my thought.

If it's H2H why do you care about being deficient in sb?

I'm also concerned about wilson: he backed off quite a bit later in the season, and had never really shown any signs of becoming an elite OF before last year.

He's also a very impatient hitter who strikes out way too much from what I saw.

Still, as long as he plays 81 cames at Coors, he should put up some pretty decent numbers.

I wouldn't go with Ichiro as you first OF, if you're lookin to improve on SB's you could go for Abreu who should steal more this year and has decent power as well.

I'd say:

Abreu
Wilson
Giles
Berkman
Ichiro
