Draft Help

Postby soty » Fri Mar 11, 2011 10:44 am

My next 2 picks are coming up in my slow keeper draft and I could use some help. Not sure which direction I should go? I am 2 picks away and then I pick again 6 more after that. Closers are slowly starting to come off the board so I am thinking now maybe the time to grab one? Also thinking about filling out 4th and final OF spot. What do you think? Here are some of the top available options along with my team and settings.

2B - B Roberts, C Figgins, N Walker, H Kendrick, M Aviles, R Rayburn

OF - V Guerrero, C Lee, J Bay, B Abreu, A Lind, R Davis, C Beltran, V Wells, A Huff, M Bourn, A Jones, M Cuddyer, T Hunter

I think you need to grab another pitcher here. Bailey is the last solid closer and I always like to have one solid guy and then wait on closers till close to the end.

I also like Hughes, Jackson, Sanchez, Hudson or Morrow.

If it was me, i would probably grab Bailey.

Yeah I was leaning a closer and an OF to round up all 4 OF spots, but you make a good point about a SP as well. How do you rank the closers if Bailey gets taken before me?

I took Bailey who should I target with next pick coming up? Any ideas would be appreciated.

Still some options but we knwo how fast they can come off hte table.

I think I would have been comfortable waiting on a closer.... Bailey is nice, but I could live with others, including Storen, Axford, Broxton and Perez.

I'd grabbed a SP pitcher.... Garza can't last much longer. Morrow, Sanchez, Bumgarner, Hudson, Nolasco....I like a another big K pitcher to go with your two. That woudl be raking them up.

Outfielder I thought of as well. Vlad, Bay, Abreu seem all dependable but mild concerns. Woudl go well with your other studly bats. Nice drafting.

I know he can be had later. Walker is an interesting pick for IF. But there is time.

I favour SP then OF... perhaps another SP. Perhaps, I am too patient on closers.
