help with keeper and 1st pick

Postby ffootball05 » Mon Mar 07, 2011 3:38 pm

10 team head-to-head league. we keep 3 players before each season. This year I will be keeping Braun, Zimmerman, and either Reyes/Mauer. Who would you keep? Also, I have first pick after keepers. Since this is a keeper league forever, i like the young players with upside. Best available would be: Felix Hernandez, Justin Upton, McCutchen, Pedroia, and Reyes/Mauer-whichever one I throw back. Any advice on who to keep and who to draft?

Keep Mauer draft felix. Felix is such a contender its not even funny and if he's traded he'll have 20+ win seasons for a long time. Reyes is only going to get slower the more of these "fluke" (theyre really not at this point) injuries he racks up. Mauer is the #1 C and will be for some time unless Posey or Santana shoot the moon. Reyes will not be the #1 shortstop ever again. He's leagues behind hanram and tulo.
Hernadez can be your ace for another decade if you so choose and he's shown he can dominate hitters in any park.

Help with mine?

I'd keep Reyes due to position scarcity.

King Felix would be my pick at number one.

Mauer is all over the place, he can flat out rake, but don't you want a balanced contributor like McCann, Posey etc.

Braun, Zimmerman, and Reyes and draft Felix...easily.

Thanks. Posey is being kept by somebody since this is a keeper league forever. I will probably keep Reyes as my third option, but kind of torn between drafting King Felix or a young hitter like J. Upton. Felix is a safer pick, but wondering if Upton turns into the 30/30 guy or better soon?
