1st Pick - Keeper League

Postby dodotop » Wed Mar 14, 2012 3:45 pm

Alright guys....I have first pick in 12 team roto keeper league.
Scoring Cats: R, RBI, HR, SB, AVG, OBP - W, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP

My 8 Keepers are:
Konerko, Bourne, Victorino, Goldschmidt
Verlander, Weaver, Axford, Mo Riveria

Who should my first pick be?
Possibles are Nelson Cruz, Shin-Soo Choo, Howie Kendrick, Aramis Ramirez, Yu Darvish, Craig Kimbrel

I am leaning toward Aram but might be flawed in that reasoning

Choo. Potential 20/20 with .300 AVG .400 OBP
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I'd go Nelly Cruz and fingers crossed for a full season of good health. Take a look at mine please?

Choo for me then maybe Aram


Not sure why everyone is so high on Darvish, there is 5 Dice-K's for every Ichiro that comes over

I don't think there are even that many Dice-K's because Dice-K was actually a pretty good pitcher for the first couple years. But I think it is flawed logic if you compare Darvish to Dice-K. They are nothing alike except for they both played in Japan. Darvish's numbers were exceedingly better in Japan and Darvish has the body of a major league pitcher which Dice-K never had.

I realize there is risk and even more than your normal pitcher but I think the too many people assume that he is just like everyone else that comes over, which is unfair.

I'd take Cruz by a hair over Choo. Darvish would be my 3rd choice.
