Pick #18 overall in keeper... WHIR 100%

Postby billycent » Sun Mar 04, 2012 12:12 pm

These are the most likely guys that I will be looking at for my #18 overall pick in my keeper (keep 5)...

Ian Kinsler
Jose Reyes
Mark Teixeira
Curtis Granderson
Giancarlo "Mike" Stanton
Andrew McCutchen
David Wright

If by some miracle either Prince or Cargo fall to me, I'll take 1 of them over probably anybody listed above. I also have the 1st overall pick and am taking Braun, if that affects anybody's answer at all.

update--- It is looking increasingly likely that Stanton will be taken early 2nd (first couple picks) as this is a keeper and he is highly valued in this sort of league. That being said, I have done several mocks and 2B has remained pretty deep well into the 5th or 6th rd, add in the fact that I don't think I have the stomach to draft Reyes (plus I don't really value his speed skill set that much) and I'm leaning Tex. I think he's in for at least a moderate BA correction and that he has a good 5 more years of solid production left in him... what does anyone think? Leave a link and I got u right back.

Depends on your risk appetite. Big Tex is the safest bet, but Reyes and Kinsler have more upside at scarcer positions. But, they are both injury prone.

I tend to favor power over speed early, so I'd probably go:

Kinsler
Tex
Reyes

This. Would be outstanding to see Wright fall to round 3 too.

This, only I'd probably opt for Stanton over Reyes.
