I NEED YOUR ADVICE PLEASE

Postby redn22 » Tue Mar 20, 2012 10:05 pm

18 team 5X5 Roto (HR, BA, R, RBI, SB - ERA, W, K, WHIP, Saves)

Keeper selection finished... I ended up keeping the Teixeira, Tulowitzki, Aramis Ramierz, Michael Morse, CC Sabathia and Wainwright... With my keepers I feel my immediate needs are speed for batting and saves for pitching...

I have the 16th pick in the 1st round... In terms of who's available who has speed there's Crawford, Ichiro, Rollins, Gardner, Stubbs, Aybar, Maybin, Dee and Crisp to name a few... For who's available for closers there's Axford, Storen, Bell, Papelbon, Putz, Madson, Hanrahan, Serge Santos to name a few...

I'm thinking that I'm good with power and batting average... I have a good core with Wainwright and Sabathia... So I'm thinking of drafting 2 closers with my first 2 picks... We can start 7 pitchers so that would round out 4 of 7 slots... Then draft speed or K's, depending on who's avail...

Thoughts?

Take crawford, don't draft 2 closers with your first two picks.

However I don't play 18 man, so someone may have a diff opinion.

Thanks, but chances are with me having the 16th pick, Crawford and Ichiro may be gone...

LoL now I have to guess who the other teams take too? Just list who you think your options are.

Gardner is your best speed option. I'd take him and maybe Axford with your picks if they are available.
