10th pick, reaching for Arod?

Postby kingmike74 » Sun Mar 27, 2011 6:09 am

The big draft is today and with 5 grand on the line, needless to say this is a very skilled league.

12 man redraft 5x5

I am picking 10th and want Arod bad but to pass on Adrian Gonzalez, Braun, Longo could be a huge mistake.

Who would you try for at the following draft slots?

I would try and get Arod with this 15th pick. I think it could be a mistake reaching that far for ARod. I would Longoria or Braun in place of ARod.

I think that is a reach for ARod in that spot. I would take any of the other 3 instead in that spot. ARod's ADP is 16, so if you really want him you shoud take either Braun or AGon in the 1st and ARod could still be there for you in the 2nd.

FWIW, I would probably take Longo in the 1st round and a 1st baseman on the way back. Good luck.

I wouldn't take him there. If he makes it to you in the second, consider that a win. Don't reach.
