Need help bad deciding on my first round pick between:

Postby Newkie » Thu Mar 17, 2011 9:52 am

Hi, I am in a 10 keeper, 10 manager, H2H league with normal 6x6 scoring. I have a 1st round pick (8th overall) no 2nd or 3rd rounds, then back to 2nd overall in the 4th round. Here are the players I think will be available for me at the 8th pick after seeing and hearing what the others in front of me are taking. Which player would you take, and remember, I am shallow at SP and have no 3B.

Beltre, Victorino, Weeks, Delmon Young, Sean Marcum, Trever Cahill, Brandon Morrow, Papplebon and Carlos Marmol are a few of the better available players still out there.
I am leaning towards Beltre and Marcum, what do you think?
there are even players like Beltran, Abreu, Tori Hunter, Johan Santana, Dempster, Webb, Strasburg, Adam Wainwright

Below is my keeper list as of now:

Thanks

c McCann
1b Texiera
2b Phillips
ss Alexia Ramirez
of Ethier
of Choo
of Werth
rp Neftali Feliz
sp C. Lee
sp Brett Anderson

Thanks for the post, but wow, that was not the way I was thinking that list or top pick would go.
Anyone else have an opinion?

Thanks in advance

With what you have and without know what your roster limits are if he's there I'm taking Beltre.
League Setup:
13 Team Points League
6 Hitters 3 Pitchers (Positions don't matter)
1B = 1, 2B = 2, 3B = 3, HR = 4, RBI = 1
Win = 12, Save = 5

Beltre is your best value.

Beltre
Weeks
Victorino
Marmol
Young
Morrow

Avoid Cahill unless he slips very far. I would be interested in taking a flier on Strasburg about three-fourths of the way through the draft.

I was offered Beltre for Feliz. Would you do this knowing my SP's (Lee and Anderson) and in my case no RP's if I move Feliz. If I move Feliz, I am going to punt on saves like I do every year. If I take this, then I would turn around and draft Victorino with my first round pick, and then hope I could find a SP in round 4. What do you think? Marcum, Morrow, Dempster, Lily, Garza, Jonathon Sanchez, Hudson, Zimmerman, Wainwright etc. are on the board, not sure if they would last until round 4. I know Marcum wont.

Would you add Beltre and Victorino and lose Feliz?

Why punt saves, especially in a 10 team league where you should get 3 closers.
I'm not a big Beltre fan, he's ok. In a 10 team league, you can fill 3B.
I still like Marmol or Weeks with the pick.

From what I hear ,Weeks will be gone, based on mumblings and grumblings in the league.

Sounds like you would hold Feliz, and maybe even draft Marmol for that 1-2 closer. Not a bad thought if Victorino is gone and Texas pencils in Feliz as their closer? Those SP's I have listed probably wont make a difference on my team as much as a top closer?

Any others...
