MLB is Upon us!! Need Some Draft Advice!

Postby etl1692 » Mon Mar 19, 2012 11:20 pm

League: 12 teams, H2H, Points System

Batting: R=1 H=1 2B=2 3B=3 HR=4 RBI=2 SB=2 CS=-1 BB=1 IBB=1 HBP=1 K=-1 GIDP=-1 TB=1
Pitching: IP=1 W=10 L=-5 CG=10 SHO=10 SV=5 ER=-1 BB=-1 HBP=-1 K=-1 WP=-1 BLK=-1 Pick=2 NH=20 PG=25

My question is this.... I'm in a keeper league and have decided to go with Kemp and Votto as my hitters and C.C. and Lincecum as my pitchers. I am going to be drafting in the 6th spot this year, and was wondering what maybe I should go for? I kno this is a very vauge question as I have no idea who the other 11 managers kept, but I was wondering if maybe I should go for a pitching ace, or a solid hitter, or even maybe a good hitter that's position depth this year is not so great? Basically just looking for solid draft advice! Just keep in mind 11 other managers kept their 2 best hitters and 2 best pitchers, and I'm drafting in the 6th spot....

Thanks Guys! Cheers!

That's too open-ended a question. You need to tell us:

1. Who is likely to be available.

2. What type of player(s) your points system favors, and by relatively how much. It's asking too much for everyone who wants to answer your question to spend 15 minutes figuring out your specific points system. Just tell us in what way it skews rankings off your standard 12 team mixed 5x5 roto.

Best player available. Too early in the draft to start worrying about anything else.

;-D

This until you HAVE to fill spots. Keep in mind your points don't care which position they come from. You can have a scrub in you Util spot or a scrub at 2b, same difference in the end.
