Need help with the 1st pick in my keeper league!

Postby utztherevolution » Wed Feb 09, 2011 8:34 pm

Hey everyone! I am in a 10 team league where we get to keep 8 players on a team. Its 6x6 league.

As of right now I know I am keeping

1B- Ryan Howard
2B- Chase Utley
SS- Jose Reyes
3B- David Wright
OF- Matt Holliday
OF-Andrew McCutchen
OF-Mike Stanton

SP- Cole Hamels

I have the number one pick in the draft starting round 9. The best players out there are Josh Johnson, Liriano, Cain, Scherzer, Carpenter, Billingsley, Jeter, Rios, Beltre, Ichiro, Rasmus, C. Santana,Stubbs, Sandoval, Alvarez, Sizemore, Bay, and all closers.

I have the 1, 20 and 21 picks.

The question is where do you think i should go? Every team besides mine already has atleast 2 sp's. I was thinking of going with a bat since there arnt that many good ones out there. I'm open to everything.

Thanks for the the replies so far!

Could you give me a little detail on why JJ or Cain? Im a little worried about JJ and Liriano bc of their surgeries.

Cain is high up on my list

I like Johnson as well. He is a health risk, but all reports so far this offseason say he's feeling fine and is ready to go, so I'd take the chance. Provided he is healthy, he's a very strong SP option.

Cain is overrated a bit. his K/9 has dropped, plus his FIP and xFIP are a bit high.
JJ doesn't worry me at all. Liriano either.
I would take all these over Cain,

JJ
CSantana
Liriano
Billingsley
Stubbs
Scherzer
Sizemore

Johnson - even with an injury he started 28 games last year after 33 the year before. 33 starts again is not a reach for a guy 6'7" 250 lbs.
