First overall pick?

Postby JamonaX » Tue Mar 29, 2011 10:56 am

I have the first overall pick in my draft tonight. It is an espn league with standard head to head category scoring. Should I take pujols 1st or hanley because ss position isnt to deep. Is there anybody deep in ss that I could snag in the later rounds? Any advice I would apriciate it because it's my first year playing.

I had first overall in my league as well. I think everyone will disagree with me, but I went Hanley. The depth at SS make Hanley more valuable to me, even though Pujols is clearly the best player in baseball. I took Hanley, and than Ryan Howard in the third. I like the sounds of that much better than the guy who took Pujols 2nd in my league, and is starting Furcall at SS.

You have to take the best player available by far - Albert Pujols.

Pujols for sure. If you miss out on the top 7 ss, I actually don't mind Yunel Escobar as a deeper option. And depending on your league, Nishioka can qualify at SS.
