Who should I draft in my keeper league?!!?

Postby TheGhost » Sat Mar 10, 2012 6:24 pm

I play in a keeper league and would really appreciate some advice regarding my draft. H2H, yahoo, 6x6, keep 6. I feel like I need some speed and some pitching obviously. Was thinking of drafting CarGo or A-Gone with my second pick (best player available) but now I'm thinking Longo or even Hanley (3B). Below is my roster so far:

C:
1B: Eric Hosmer
2B:
3B:
SS: Starlin Castro
OF: Jay Bruce
OF: Giancarlo Stanton
OF: Michael Morse
Utl:
Utl:

SP: Michel Pineda
SP:

Considering the roster above, which of the following players should I target with my 2, 9, and 11 overall picks? Any draft strategy suggestion? Thanks and WHIR!

Adrian Gonzalez
Carlos Gonzalez
Evan Longoria
Jose Reyes
Hanley Ramirez
Andrew McCutchen
Clayton Kershaw
Roy Halladay
Cliff Lee
Tim Lincecum
Felix Hernandez

First question....how are all those guys not being kept by other teams?

I guess I like Longoria at #2, and since the rest of those bats will probably be gone before your next pick, grab 2 of those aces with #9 & #11.

We can only keep two players between rounds 1-5, two between rounds 6-10, and two between 11-23. This keeps the top of the draft a little more fresh. Also, we get to keep players one round higher then they were drafted the previous year. So in terms of "round value" sometimes it's better to throw your top picks from the previous year back in the draft. ;-D

Cargo
Kershaw

AGon

Hanley wouldn't be in the mix this early.

I like Gonzo at 2 there. It's either him or Longoria clearly there so pick whoever drops to you.

At the 9-spot I'd look for whoever is left from CarGo, McCutchen (who will provide a nice power breakout this year), or a 3b if you didn't get Longoria. With the 11th pick I'd scoop up one of the pitchers. That should give you a nice start to go with the guys you've already got.
