Who should I take with the 4th pick?

Postby TheGhost » Tue Mar 01, 2011 1:44 pm

I play in a league that has a scoring system that I'm not used to. There are a whole bunch of categories and it's a roto league. Pitching is king in my league. Wins, complete games, and K's are the most important stats. Roy Halladay scored 1091 points where Pujols scored 873. That said, both Halladay and Pujols will both be gone by the time I pick. Should I go pitching and select Lincecum, Cliff Lee or Felix? Or should I go with Tulo or Hanley and solidify a thin position. Torn here and don't know which way to go. Thanks for any help... ;-D %-6

I would definitely go with Hanley. Just because the pitching stats account for more points doesnt mean that they are more important than hitters. The difference between a guy like Felix and Verlander is not so large. You can still always find cheap, valuable pitchers late in drafts and on the waiver wire. You aren't finding Hanley there.

I tend to agree with you. The only problem for me with Hanley is that he kind of blew last year. Not really but I like how Tulo is more of a gamer. Is there any argument for taking Tulo over Hanley? Any other hitters after Pujols that are more valuable then the top two shortstops? Thanks!
