#3 pick 12 team roto, who do I take?

Postby JDAWG5 » Sun Mar 06, 2011 4:34 pm

OK, this is my first ever fantasy baseball draft, and I want to make sure I don't mess it up.

I'm assuming that Pujols will go #1.

The guy picking 2nd is either taking Votto or Hanley.

If Hanley is there I will take him because ss is really thin this year, however if the guy in front of me takes Hanley, who should I pick?

Miguel Cabrera kind of scares me with with his recent DUI.

Do I take Tulo because as I already stated ss is thin?

Thanks in advance

I'd take Hanley if he is left first, but I expect he will be taken. After that, it's Miggy all the way IMO.

If you go Tulo at #3, you will still be able to snag Howard/Fielder at #22. So, you have an elite player at very thin position and still have a power 1st baseman.
1B is deep, no need to draft 2 in 1st 2 rounds. I always look at it as how my team is built over the first 2-3 picks, not just player A vs player B(Tulo vs Miggy).
I'm actually surprised everyone has responded with Miggy.(especially with his recent troubles).

edit:above is assuming Hanley is gone at #2

There's a fair difference between Miggy and Howard/Fielder really, and Tulo's ranking is based on being hotter than the sun for 1 month last year - he hit almost half his homers in September whereas Miggy has put up excellent numbers for years now.

Gotta go with Hanley then Miggy. Don't worry about his DUI! Do not and I repeat do not take Tulo that high. He is not worth it. He is good but unproven still and injury prone. Miggy is too good to pass up. I would rather take Votto, Braun, CarGo over Tulo. But that is just my opinion.

please help

Hanley or Cabrera. Don't sweat the DUI. I am also in the school of thought of getting OF and 1B later in the draft. Good luck!
