Pick 12 in 16 team keeper league (WHIR)

Postby pizzaboy76 » Tue Mar 20, 2012 9:00 am

I'm in a 16 team 5x5 roto league. We keep 3 players and players kept cost round originally drafted and then they lose 3 rounds each year after that until they can't be kept.

We start C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 4 OF, Utility, and 8 Pitchers (Can be all SP or all RP or any mix).

My keepers are J. Upton (2), M. Kemp (3), and Votto (7).

I curious how to play my early picks, pick 12 in round 1, as well as Round 4-6. If a top SP is available would I be crazy to take him in Round 1? Every year 3-5 teams focus on hitting and just draft RP's for their pitching staff, so SP tends to hang around.

Best Available Position Players (Top 12)

Longoria
A. Gonzalez
Kinsler
Reyes
Wright
Beltre
Bruce
Hamilton
Cruz
Tex
Uggla
Pence

Best Available SP's (Top 8)
Halladay
Kershaw
Lee
Verlander
Felix
CC
Grienke
Hamels

I assume that at least 8 of the first 11 picks will be position players. That leaves me to choose from Tex, Uggla and Pence or an SP. If I take an SP, I assume I just focus on bats after that? Which SP's would you take in the 1st round in my position? Which batters if they fall?

Leave a link and WHIR.

Tex or Kershaw/Halladay/Verlander would be my pick. Not a fan of Uggla/Pence with those guys on the board.

Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I agree, Teix or one of those stud aces IMO. Also like Adrian and Prince.

I would rank them as follows:

Longoria
A. Gonzalez
Kinsler
Reyes
Bruce
Wright
Beltre
Hamilton
Tex
Halladay
Kershaw
Verlander
Uggla
Cruz
Pence

If any of the guys above Tex fall, it's a no brainer. otherwise, while I prefer to take a bat over an arm, if either of those 3 fall, I like them better then Uggla, Cruz, & Pence.

thanks for the help with mine
