10 team, 10 keeper league. Have first overall pick. Do i take Harper? Leagues been around for 8 years w same guys so it's not going anywhere. Best guys available are like Rios, Pence, Chris B Young, Stubbs. Pretty much the 11th round. If there were better players available I wouldn't consider it but......

Absolutely not. Harper is no sure thing and isn't going to sniff the majors for 2 more years. Making a move like that would handicap your team before the season even started. Pence or Stubbs are good picks especially with 10 keepers.

Stubbs, Pence, Rios in that order. However if you do have a farm team system I would take Harper.

Pence easily over Harper even if you do have a farm system.

Stubbs if you can stomach the average, if not, then Pence.

Harper is best saved for a pick near the end. Or for the sucker that takes him early. ;-D

Plese help?

Now that I think about it a little more have to agree, that Harper could prolly be had about 5-6 rounds in.
