I have taken over a team with 8 MLB keepers (12 team 5x5 H2H) and 3 minor leaguers. For the major league keepers, I have a slew of good bats (e.g. Braun, Sizemore, Berk, Markakis...) but weak pitching (maybe keeping 2 of Zambrano, Lee, or Danks). On the minor league side, we can keep up 3 but I chose to keep two (Snider and Andrus). this is the first time that I have used a minor league system and my question is this: Should I go the safe route with a "sure" bat or go with the high upside pitcher?
I have the #2 pick and there will be guys like Feliz, Cahill, Hanson, and Anderson available on the mound, but there will also be hitters like Smoak, Alvarez, Alonso, and Beckham to choose from. 1) Hitters usually arrive quicker and 2) pitchers flame out a lot easier and have bigger injury risks. What is the best way to go here?
