Cano a keeper, help me pick my next guy

Postby Reg » Sat Mar 12, 2011 2:29 pm

Only an 8 team league so I'm going to get a chance at a top guy. Scenario doesn't matter, but involves keepers/first round pick.

Normal categories but we substitute AVG for hits and OBP and add Ks
Runs (R), Hits (H), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Strikeouts (K), On-base Percentage (OBP)

I have Robinson Cano kept, and in the first round, depending on draft order and who another team selects, I'll have a shot for at least one of these guys. There's a chance I'll only have a choice of one, but I'd like to be prepared. Anyway, those guys are:

Miguel Cabrera
Joey Votto
Carlos Gonzalez

All studs. I suppose I'd put Votto ahead of Miggy to be cautious? Either way I wouldn't know where to start deciding between one of them vs. Gonzalez. I'm an amateur when it comes to H2H and categories with position scarcety etc so maybe you guys can point me in the right direction. I typically like to fill my bases and then go for lottery pick type OFers(we only start 3) so I might try to pick 5 high upside guys, but Gonzalez is a monster, and 1B isn't exactly shallow.

Miggy - Don't worry about the off-field stuff. He's awesome.
Votto - Can't go wrong here, but he's not quite at Miggy's level.
CarGo - A little more risk than the others.

I like them just as in the order you listed - Miggy, Votto, CarGo.
