Our league lost two owners. So, instead of looking for new ones, the league was reduced to 10 teams. That also lead to a change in the draft position. I moved up to the number one spot. Since the loss of the two teams, they are now a lot of players available that normally would not have. Of them, I am torn between three: Derek Jeter, Josh Beckett, and Chris Carpenter. I would have jumped to get Jeter since I am usually lacking at SS but last year was a disaster for me with pitching. I wasn't able to get a strong group out every week as well as some bad luck ( wasting my first round pick of Chien Ming Wang and Hudson came back too late for me to use.) My draft is Saturday and I have no idea what to do. Any advice would be great. Thanks.
With Zobrist on board to play SS I'd probably take Beckett, although I'd take Jeter over Carpenter. Beckett gets you solid ratios plus elite Ks (which works for your pts system IMO). Jeter's probably the best value there of course, but given your roster I think I'd manage to overlook that I'm not so hot on Carpenter in points leagues that score both Ks and SOs.
Take a look at your leagues positional eligibility though. Vlad might be Util only if you have Util slots, and if that's the case you could move him to Util, Zobrist to the OF and slot Jeter in at SS.
Is keeper/draft pick trading allowed? If so, I'd try to drop a spot or two and pick up one of the pitchers. Trading one of your guys on offense to make room for Jeter could also make sense.
If you have to stay put, you have to go with a pitcher, but don't go overboard because of what happened last year. Hitting is still more valuable. If there are guys like Ubaldo and Nolasco that aren't being kept, I think that you'll find it easier to pick up strikeout guys than guys with great WHIP and ERA numbers like Carp. I'd go with him.
It's points though, so who cares what his actual ratios are outside of his point production? Carp doesn't strike enough guys out for me to be comfy with him over Beckett, not when his ratios won't pick up the same value in points back.
Thanks, guys. A lot of the top pitchers are being kept, like Verlander, Ubaldo, and Nolasco. Only major K guys left are Wandy and Gallardo. As far as position elgibility, I have lost Vlad to DH and Zobrist to OF. While I would like to have Jeter, I think right now I would rather have an impact pitcher to anchor my rotation and my alternate choices at SS, while not on the same level as Jeter, are a little better than previous years.
