Last pick for a while ... Pierre or Snider or ? WHIR

Postby birdbrains » Sun Feb 13, 2011 9:50 am

This is my last pick for a while... well not that long but compared to make 6 of the 1st 22 picks it is... But my team is almost round out,,,Catcher can wait unless I am wrong here.. but I see the need for speed... I know I will get some from Victroino 34 last year, Pence 18 ,Jeter 18, BUT thats pretty much it....

I was thinking of Juann Pierre, if he is still available...I have 4 picks in front of me.. Rajai Davis and Jennings just went...so Pierres the only SB impact player left... OR do I go with the better player all around in Travis Snider who is a potential keeper?
Here are some of the talent left...
..........this is an 18 team league H2H...unusually deep league...with 10 keepers...........
by the way Manny is still out there........so is Napoli who qualifies for 1st as well as catcher
Even though this is the 2nd round , It is like the 12 round becasue of the keepers or in a 12 team league the 17th or 18th round

Id go with Snider too. I just don't see Pierre hitting those SB numbers this year. Speed you can add through trade or over the ww as the season progresses. Take the player with the upside. Snider is your guy ;-D
