12th/13th Pick -- Who Do I Target? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Mon Mar 12, 2012 5:06 pm

I have 12th and 13th pick in this head to head league. Who should I target? SP goes very quickly, as does OF. Since this is a keeper league, a lot of talent will be off the board already. Please see specifics below.

Do I go with a Greinke/Lawrie approach to get the best avail pitcher and best avail all-around bat? Greinke/Cain to give myself three stud pitchers? Greinke/Victorino to get a great SP and a great OF with speed/triples?

12 Team H2H Daily with 6 Keepers Season to Season, each for 3 years max. * means player cannot be kept.
Stat Categories: R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG -- IP, CG, W, L, ER, ERA, K, SV, WHIP

Cargo and Justin. I had that Outfield in my league last year and won the league by 15 games.

Greinke/Lawrie would be the realistic ideal combo. I think you have them ranked properly.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Grienke and Lawrie would be an ideal combo, doubt Cargo or Justin fall that far. If Grienke is gone, Cain and Lawrie would be a nice consolation prize.
