Ok, we have a 5x5 league with Regular Yahoo scoring. We get two keepers. I am keeping lincacum for sure in the 7th round, but really baffled on what to do with my other keeper. Here are my options
1. Wainwright in the 16th. 2. Jared weaver in the 16th. Seems like wainwright is better and more upside. 3. Nady in the 19th. 4. Braun in the 1st round. We have to go one pick back from the year before so since I drafted Braun in the 2nd round last year, could get him in the 1st. Tomorrow we pick what draft spot we get. And i thought about keeping Braun and taking the 11th or 12 pick in the draft getting Braun 11th or 12th doesnt seem bad but is it better than getting Wainwright in the 16th when he is usually going in the 11th or 12th. I personally would like to have the 4th pick since I think Reyes, Hansley, Pujuls, and wright are about the next group of 8. 5. Here are ther other option but none seem worth it. Taverez in the 18th, myers in the 9th, vasquez in the 7th, bj ryan in the 10th, valverde in the 6th. I just dont see any value in these better than wainwright or Braun in the 1st round 11th or 12th pick.
Please let me know what you guys think. I am really torn here.
Thanks for the replies so far. Kinda undecided still. I have the 4th pick to pick to a draft spot, So I guess I am at the point of if I Can get pick 11th or 12th in the first round I might go with Braun (If i cant get the 2-4th pick in the first round). If I cant get 11th,12th, 1st,2nd, 3rd, or 4th pick, then i go with wainwright. Unless a few others think wainwright is the way to go no matter what.
I kinda figure If i take braun 11th or 12th , that leaves me getting an utley, rollins, teixera, Beltran or Berkman coming back. The one thing is I really want to get crawford in the 3rd round. I think that is a steal for him and I think he drops to there. But with the 11th or 12th pick in the 3rd round, I dont think i have a chacne for that.
Thanks, that is what I am thinking. Tonight We get to pick our draft order. You are drawn out of a hat and get to pick from what is left. If I can get 2-4 I will probably just go there and keep wainwright. If I cant get any of those, hopefully 11th or 12th is available and I will go with that and keep braun. One thing to remember is if i take a 1-4 spot, I lose my 7th round pick with lincecum. So I will lose pick 1-4 in the 7th round. But if I take 11th or 12th I lose that pick in the 7th round but will get a 1-2 pick in the 8th round so it will be like i lost nothing.
Oh ya, some people have already came out with their keepers and Hamilton, texeira, kinsler, longoria are all kept. SO those wont be available in the 1st or 2nd round for sure. So if i get a 11th or 12th spot, I am looking at Braun and one of these people for sure- Utley, berkman, Beltran, Upton, Lee, holliday, Soriano, Upton
If I go the other Route, I get either Hansley, Pujols, Reyes and wright, and one of these people - Morneau, upton, Manny, Lee, crawford, feilder, Lee, Holliday, A-rod. With another pick coming in 1-4 picks. Where I could get maybe one of these still, or a phillips, quentin, suziki, markakis, Bay, Aramis. I would go With all hitters since I have a stud pitcher and a quality pitcher.
