Who to pick #1-3 overall??

Postby oncogene » Sun Mar 13, 2011 4:00 pm

I asked about my last 2 keepers couple days ago.. thanks for the replies
viewtopic.php?f=26&t=423620

I ended up with Pujols, longoria,, kemp, Stanton, BJ Upton, Grienke, CCSab, Cain as my 8 keepers.

Yahoo H2H ... 12-teams league
Roster: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL
Hitters stat: R, H, HR, RBI, SB, K, E, Avg, OPS
Pitchers: W, SV, BB, K, ERA, WHIP

As mentioned, I'm supposed to have the first overall pick (snake draft)... .but the commish put me at #3 in the draft. I already told him he got it wrong but he still thinks he's correct... not sure what he's looking at :-S

Anyway, whoh should I take as #1 (or potentially #3)? I'm thinking 2B... a few top ranked avilable batters:

Brandon Phillips - 2b, Suzuki - of, McCann - c, Bruce - of, Rios - of, M.Young - 3b
.........
Drew-SS, Kelly Johnson-2b, Andrus-SS, B.Roberts-2b, Zobrist -1/2b/of, Fural -ss, Sandoval-1/3B, Wieters-C

If I do draft #1, Phillips at 2B seems like the best choice yeah? But if i draft #3 and Phillips is taken (neither of the 2 teams that are currently mistakenlyy drafting ahead of me have 2B keeper), who should I take? Reach down to Kelly Johnson? Or take a pitcher? (top FA pitchers, Marmol, Rivera, Feliz). Abit tricky to pick #3.... Oh and drafting is tonight :(

I'm really tempted to draft another OF too.... but with 3 missing position (C,2B, SS), having already 3OF keepers, should I really get another OF??

2b is what you should draft IMO. If you draft a SS, then you are reaching quite a bit. I am waiting till very late if I don't get the top 3, looking at the projections of the SS position, very little separates those drafted in rounds 5 through 20. Very little high reward candidates at the SS position.

C is not a position to reach for either, but it will fill a hole with solid production, he is in the top tier at his position.

Ok, I got my first overall pick back finally :-B
So it's Brandon Phillips at 2B for my first pick for sure then I guess?!

I'll say Phillips as well. McCann would be my next choice. He's a top catcher and a reliable one at that. Getting his kind of production from the C position is a great thing.

Taking another OF here wouldn't be a good move.

Heh I had McCann but I didn't keep him, as others were suggesting in my previous thread (link in the first pos). Position rarity vs better production?? tough choice

Either Phillips or Bruce. Because your OF is stacked, I'd go with Phillips although I think Bruce is the more desirable keeper.
