How would you draft?

Postby Surfs up » Wed Mar 09, 2011 7:08 pm

12 team 5x5 keeper mixed. Pujlos, Utley,Hanley, Holliday and Felix, Scherzer are my six.
I have the third overall pick and will get one of either Braun, Tulo or Miggy depending on the first two picks.
Our league kept 20 pitchers including Halladay, Kershaw, Lee and Johnson.I have two picks i the second round and No picks in the third round.
I have been thinking of loading up with hitting with my first three picks. But depending on what pitcher is still on the board with my second pick in the second round I would consider taking a pitcher.Then going back to hitting.
Lots of good hitting after the first round like Suzuki, Pence, BJ Upton, Elssbury, Victorino, Stubbs and Ramus avalible.
Hanson, Billingsley, Marcum, Lilly, Garza, Hudson , Sanchez and Chacin are some pitching avalible. What would you do ?We draft 19 rounds. Pitch 10 and hit 15 with no reserve players.

WIth Felix and Scherzer I would probably go hitters in the first three picks. However you can't have a set in stone strategy, because if a pitcher falls farther than they should you need to be flexible enough to take them if they are at a place of value.

Its very possible Hanson could be there with my first second round pick ( 21 overall ) Lester, Lincecum and Verlander are also avalible but I don't see any of them slipping that far into the second round.
Would you take Pence, Ichiro, BJ Upton Ellsbury , Victorino, Stanton or Stubbs with one of the other second round picks?
Other options in that round would be Kendry Morales, Delmon Young,Konerko or A Ram.
We use two CI . two MI and a Utl that can be anybody. Along with normal positions
