Who to should I take with the first pick? keeper league

Postby dubstar » Sun Mar 06, 2011 3:09 pm

I have the first overall pick in my keeper league. I was planning on drafting Pedroia, but now A Gonzalez will be available. I should take A Gon and worry about 2b later right? Even though I have Fielder. I feel like I am going to struggle at SP this year so Fielder could be a good trade chip to help my Staff.

10 team H2h
OBP, R, HR, RBI, SB, XBH
W, K, SV, ERA, WHIP, QS

my team before the draft:

C Santana
1b Fielder
2b
3b Zimmerman
SS
OF Kemp, Cruz
UTIL

SP
RP

I think you have to go with AGone. Way too much upside in that lineup.

2b is deeper than you realize, guys like Neil Walker = huge sleeper this year. Take Agone and don't look back.

A-Gon, and then I like your idea about moving Fielder for pitching. Or, you would have the Util spot locked up!!

AGon is an easy choice. Check out how deep 2B is and you'll see that you can wait. Even Phillips, Johnson, Weeks or Prado in the middle rounds can give you value.

Check out mine.

Or I could just take Kershaw and have a #1 starter right there. Thoughts?
