Keeper league draft question

Postby jonboy418 » Sun Mar 04, 2012 9:25 pm

I am in a ten team keeper league with emphasis on OPS hitters and SB is a non factor.
We keep 3 hitters and 2 pitchers, with the 3 OF positions, no CI or MI.
I have Mcab, Hanley and Cargo (Felix and Cain as pitchers, but I'm drafting a hitter)

I am looking at four players:
Beltre - would be a no brainier if Hanley and Cabrera weren't going to get 3b eligibility.
Mccutchen - best player available, but already have Cargo and OF is deeeeep.
Holliday - considered because of the OPS bump
Uggla - best 2b available, only for position scarcity reasons only...

How would you rank those four players?

Beltre then Mccutchen

Beltre at 3b is pretty much an easy decision here even though Mccutchen is the higher ranked player.

;-D especially if SB don't count.

i don't agree about OF being deep, but anyways.
Miggy plays 1B, Hanley SS, get Beltre.
But Holliday is just a good a pick.
Uggla is so overrated. Take away his hit streak, and he was Adam Dunn.
I love AM, but if SB don't count, it takes him down some.
