Keeper Draft help! What would you do?

Postby Ryo1549 » Thu Mar 08, 2012 9:42 am

I am in an 8 player keeper league. I have one of the bottom worst keepers in the league. I had to trade drat picks just to have some of these guys:

Dan Uggla
Jay Bruce
Mike Napoli
Adam Jones
Drew Stubbs
Ryan Howard
Zack Greinke
Daniel Hudson

I traded a 2nd and a 3rd to acquire Greinke, Napoli, and Jones.

I have the 2nd pick in the draft. The first pick is going to be Jason Heyward according to the person who has it.

Available players:
Michael Morse
Michael Bourn
BJ Upton
Michael Cuddyer
Howie Kendrick
Dee Gordon
Paul Goldschmidt

Yu Darvish
Josh Johnson
Ricky Romero
Drew Storen
Jordan Zimmermann

I am leaning toward taking Paul Goldschmidt since he is a young 1b with huge power upside. However Yu Darvish is also intriguing to me. Who would you take and why?

You listed 12 guys. I probably put Goldschmidt 11th imo.

I take the best player

Morse
BJ
Darvish

Morse helps now, plus has trade value.
I think BJ hits a power spike, plus he's entering his peak.

I'm with HOOTIE here except in a slightly different order - Morse, Darvish, BJ.

Yep. I like BJ Upton more than most so I probably go that way but take whoever you think will help you the most this year.

Morse. Goldschmidt shouldn't be on your radar.

I am with them but another order. Darvish or Morse. I really think Darvish is going to be pretty good and I think you could trade him in a month or two and get a lot more than Morse for him.

Why draft Darvish so early? Take Morse or BJ

Because this is such a shallow league, you can find any of these guys production pretty easily. Might as well take the guy who has a chance to be stud.

C Mike Napoli
1b Ryan Howard
2b Dan Uggla
OF Jay Bruce, Adam Jones, Drew Stubbs
SP Zack Greinke, Daniel Hudson

Michael Morse
Michael Bourn
Brett Lawrie any sleeper 3b available?

Morse is your guy you'll need a 1b and a steady influence. You might as well outslug and out speed everyone else since your BA will be so low. Bourn would be a nice balancing selection as well.
