1st Pick...Pujols, Hanley, maybe Tulo? Keeper Re-Draft.

Postby Missing Link » Mon Feb 28, 2011 7:57 am

I have the first pick in a keeper league fully redrafting this season. Not sure who I should go with? I know Pujols is the #1 player in baseball he is 31 years old (maybe), but Tulo is only 26 and Hanley is 27.

My gut is telling me shortstop is the way to go with the depth at 1B, but I am a little worried about Hanley as my top player. His HRs,avg., and SBs have all gone down over the past few years. He also started getting tired at the end of last season. At 27(if he is) that worries me.

Tulo does have some injury concernes, but probably would have had 35+ homeruns last year if he did not miss time with a broken wrist.

Roster Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, IF, LF, CF, RF, OF, Util, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL
Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS)
Pitchers Stat Categories: Wins (W), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)

I think Tulo may be the way to go. He is a guy entering his prime at a very thin position and could put up monster numbers if healthy for a whole season. Any thoughts? WHIR

Pujols is still the most reliable option. Maybe not for the next 10 years but if you're forecasting out over the next several seasons, I like his production over anyone else.

I'd take Pujols, who is still the Fantasy GOD even at the age of 31, and who knows where he ends up in 2012, could be a better situation then St.Louis?

I'm in agreement here, gotta go Albert Hanley is great, but Albert is just so consistent. Plus he is playing for a contract now, adding even more motivation. Could be scary.

Pujols, Pujols, Pujols.

It really feels like the obsession with rookies and minor leaguers is reaching critical mass this year. The season has already started and we're seeing people legitimately thinking about trading guys like Halladay and Hanley for prospects and future stars.

DRAFT TO WIN THIS YEAR.

Don't overthink it. Pujols is the best fantasy player in the game right now, and it's not really close.

I would go Pujols, BUT If you want to be wacky, DON'T let it be with Tulo. Tulo isn't even a top 20 pick for me--I just can't trust the history of injuries. Yeah he has the talent to be a top 10 pick, but I can't let my first (or 2nd round pick) be that big of a known question mark.

1). Pujols
1a). Hanley

No to Tulo.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)
