Ok so I'm in my yearly 'pick 3 real MLB teams then form the best fantasy players from those teams' league. I lucked out and got the #1 overall pick, and although I hate them, I had to take the Yankees.
Now I'm up for back-2-back picks, my Team #2 and Team #3 of 3 teams. 12 Team league, h2h scoring... settings: Bats- Runs (R), Hits (H), Doubles (2B), Triples (3B), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Strikeouts (K), Batting Average (AVG), On-base Percentage (OBP) Arms- Innings Pitched (IP), Wins (W), Losses (L), Complete Games (CG), Saves (SV), Earned Runs (ER), Walks (BB), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)
My thoughts: I’m thinking about for sure taking the Reds (Votto/Phillips/Bruce/Cordero see like too good of a 4some to pass up?) and then going with the Cubs to beef up my pitching staff.
BUT then I start thinking about stuff, you have squads that I would love to take, but just for a couple players i.e. KC for Butler/Greinke/Soria, Cleveland for Sizemore/Choo, Baltimore for Roberts/Markakis/Wieters/Matusz, Nationals for Zimmerman/Dunn/Morgan/Strasburg, Padres for Adrian/Bell, Stros for Lee/Pence/Berk/Wandy…
So who would YOU go with to make the best possible team to combo with the Yankees? Yankees/Reds/Cubs? Yankees/Reds/Indians? Yankees/Reds/Royals? Yankees/Cubs/Indians? See what I’m saying? I need your help!!
Anyone? Not asking you to pick the players, just asking what your thoughts are on the available teams... Is Greinke or Sizemore or Zimmerman worth sacraficing more depth? Or should I go with one depth sacraficing team, and then one with depth? Would you rather stronger Hitting or stronger Pitching?
I would definitely grab the Nationals, they've got some real good talent in Dunn Zimmerman Morgan, and then its either the Royals if you think you need the arms, Grienke is another ace, and Soria/Rivera is a pretty sweet RP setup, Billy is Huge...... or the O's for Wieters Jones Reimold, theyve got a few young servicable arms Matusz Tillman.
Thanks for your response, bro ... I appreciate it.
After reading the posts, I would have to agree with the majority of the other posters. The Nats and Orioles get my vote. Obviously tons of good, young talent on both squads. IE; Adam Jones, Markakis, Matusz, Reimold, Weiters. And on the Nats, Zimmerman, Straasburg, nyjer morgan, ian desmond.
And dude, that's a crazy league you're in ... must be pretty tough. Good luck.
