Who to target in a keeper draft???

Postby TheGhost » Sun Feb 27, 2011 9:11 pm

So I just joined a keeper league that was abandoned by a previous owner. Yahoo, H2H, 7 keepers, 10teams, 5x5. I decided to keep: Jason Heyward, A-Rod, Dan Uggla, B.J. Upton, Carl Crawford, Lincecum, and Jered Weaver.

I have the 5th pick in the draft and am thinking these are the best draft options... who should I target?
Max Scherzer
Jose Batista
Jimmy Rollins

I would target Butler. He's a young 1st baseman that fills a need and gives you someone to help build your team for the future.

I'd keep either Stanton or Bautista over Butler (Stanton especially). That's for this year as much for the future too.

Oh snap, that is McCann there isn't it? :*) Yeah, McCann should be at the top of your list. ;-D

(In no order)
Brian McCann - May as well make the list. A very good and productive catcher.
Billy Butler - You need a 1B. Hits for very good avg.
Dan Haren - More or less consistent and will produce good results
Tommy Hanson - Young, good, tremendous upside
David Price - Young, good, tremendous upside

To me Haren and Butler are at the bottom of my list. Haren has little upside over the other young pitchers on your list and Butler does hit for average, but gets little else. He will have a great average, but only 20ish HRs and about 80 RBIs. You could wait and get a guy like Logan Morrison later in your draft getting similar results.

I would probably go either with Batista or Price as my top two options. Price is a potential keeper for next season and Batista is a lock 30/100 this season.

WHIR?
