King Felix or Tim Lincecum?!?

Postby TheGhost » Sat Mar 05, 2011 7:45 pm

So my league has a heavy emphasis on pitching and I'm trying to decide which of these pitchers to draft if they are all available. Roy Halladay is going to be the first player selected and I have the 4th pick. I assume Albert is going second or third. The key stats that I'm looking for are wins, K's, quality starts and complete games.

So given the stats I'm looking for, how would you rate these pitchers??

Felix Hernandez, Tim Lincecum

I love Tulo but worry about his April slumps and even more worried about his injury history. I wouldn't take an OF that early and Miggy has too many red flags and plays a deep fantasy position? So out of those three, I'd take Tulo. However, I'm a little surprised you didn't mention Hanley Ramirez. Thoughts?

Felix again.... I think you could quite possibly have these same options with your second pic.... I'd be taking a bat. Any of those mentioned here that fall to you. Scoop them. Doc is going to be there as well.

Lend me your voice?

Felix as well, though I agree that unless your league is insanely pitcher friendly, it needs to be Miggy or Tulo or somebody.


Help me out?

Yeah it's weird. I had a SICK offense last year (CarGo, Tulo, Hanley, McCutchen, Kemp, Upton, Choo to name a few) and had a bunch of sleeper pitchers including Kershaw and Latos who were both drafted late. The guy who won the league 6 out of the last 7 years (seriously) always takes a pitcher in the first round and contends that you need an ace. If an offensive player goes off in my league he might get you 25-30 points. If a pitcher goes off (complete game, k's, etc.) he could score 80. So yeah it is kind of "insanely" pitcher friendly. Enough to the point where I want to change it. LOL.

I'm a Mariner fan and love Felix and he would be my obvious choice but the M's sad ass offense is something I can't ignore. I need victories in my league and the M's can't score a run. Decisions, decisions.

King Felix over Lincecum easy but just how lopsided is it? Like how many more points did Halladay get last year over Pujols?

Ditto on this.

But out of the two you mentioned, I'd take the KING. He might not supply you with the W's you'd want, but he on top of every other category out there. Don't feel like it's a homer pick ;-D
