I'm in a 12-team keeper league that uses 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, DH, and 2 Util. 5 starters and 3 relievers. In addition, we have added 1 DL spot and 1 minor league spot this year. This is the first year of the league, though 3 of us are carrying over from last year (as of now, might be 2 in the end). The scoring system is a little odd in that it favors the top-5 pitchers over the top-5 hitters, but it favors the top-30 hitters over the top-30 pitchers. I guess that just shows how valuable elite pitching is.
Anyway, to the point. We are planning to have the draft this Sunday. The guy picking first is figuring to take Hanley Ramirez. I pick #11/12, and therefore have pick #2 in the second round (I prefer this because it gives me a bit better 1-2 combo and helps me see opponents' drafting styles a bit). I' wondering who was going at the top of other drafts? I keep hearing Hanley, but the projections have him around #3-5 as hitter with our scoring, and Lincecum is off the charts with the projected stats (#1 pitcher by 25 points or more). It's H2H and a daily league, and I'm just wondering what is good value around the #11 spot.
