Evan Longoria or Ryan Braun - Drafting soon

Postby klo1991 » Wed Mar 16, 2011 4:27 pm

So i have the third pick in a 5x5 10 team mixed keeper league. I am at a loss on who to pick. I really like both players. I hate miggy cabrera because of all his risk. Who should i pick at number 3? if you can make a case for carl crawford there too, go for it. thanks!

I should had the third pick in a 12 team league and went with Tulo. I would make an even stronger case for him in a 10 team league where a replacement OF or 1B will be much easier to come by than a SS. I definitely would not take Crawford there.

Miggy Bruan or Votto is the way I'd go, then Tulo. It does kinda depend on what positions you play with. If there are only 3 OF then skip Braun/Crawford.

I'm all about position value...gotta go with the 3B over OF!

That being said, I'd prolly take Miggy too. The top of the 1B pool is heavy but once you get past the top few, it levels off fast. Miggy is a beast.

I'm in the same boat as you, but a 10x10 league. To say their is no risk with Miggy is re-dick, plus in round 2 you got tex and prince available, how about AGon. I mean how could he not lead the league in RBI? take a look at his road/home split. It's scary

Longoria, and I'm not thinking twice about this. I would also take Miggy and Votto over Braun if you're wanting a first-round 1B instead.
