This is one I'm currently debating in a 14 team, 5 keeper league (1B/2B/3B/SS/3 OF/UTIL).
Six teams have 3B, leaving 8 teams needing one. Aramis, Pedro, Young, Pablo, Reynolds, Prado, McGehee still left. I wouldn't mind going closer here either, Rivera is the only top 5 guy left (Marmol, Wilson, Soria, Bell all just taken).
I'm anxious because if I pass on 3B here, I bet at least half of these guys will be gone by my next pick (at a minimum Aramis and Pedro will be gone).
I think Aramis will have a bounce back year and should go .285-.290/25-30 HR/90-100 RBI, but he is an injury risk and is 32. Pedro has tremendous power potential, but what will he hit this year? .250? .260? Or does Pedro have a breakout and becomes a viable keeper immediately? All young talent gets picked early so you have to take a chance, but since this will only be my 7th player I still would like to take reliable over unproven. Or do I just wait a round or two (if they survive) and grab a lesser ceiling guy in Pablo or McGehee or Reynolds?
C: V-Mart (kept)
2B: Pedroia (kept)
SS: Reyes (kept)
OF: Holliday (kept)
SP: Hamels (1st pick)
SP: Cain (kept)
Six Bench needed
