Draft question

Postby Wild-heart » Wed Feb 25, 2004 7:45 pm

I am in a second year 12 team keeper league that drafts tonight. I have the sixth pick. I kept over Tejada, Giambi, Hudson, Nevin and A. Boone (His injury wasn't disclosed until the day of the deadline to have our keepers in.) The top 5 in the draft likely will be Guerrero, Schmidt, Wells, IRod and Brian Giles. Barring the case that one of those isn't taken ahead of me. Who out of this list would you take next?

Jeff Kent
Rafael Furcal
Mike Lowell
Kevin Brown
Carl Crawford
Roy Oswalt
Hank Blalock
Aubrey Huff

I'm leaning towards Huff because of multiple position eligibility (1b, 3b, OF). Any comments are appreciated.

Unless I'm mistaken, I doubt Huff will qualify for 3B in most leagues (though your league may be different.

Guerrero
Wells

Kent

Schmidt
Giles

Brown
Blalock
Huff
I Rod
Lowell
Oswalt

Crawford
Furcal

*Note* Crawford and Furcal are tricky to rank. Stolen bases are like saves - you have to decide when to go for them and make sure you get a solid SB guy when you can. SBs, to my mind, are the trickiest part of the draft.

Huff does keep his third base eligibility in ESPN (this is an ESPN league). You only have to make five appearances at a position to qualify.
