I have the 8th pick in a keeper league, some of the players being kept are Bautista, Tulo, Votto, CarGo. The first round will be pretty depleted, by the time I pick I think the top players on the board will be Justin Upton, Prince Fielder, Evan Longoria and then the top pitchers. I am leaning toward Fielder or Upton. I am not sure why Prince Fielder is ranked so low on many draft boards, he had a great season last year, and he has since moved to a (slightly) more hitter friendly park and is batting in front of Miguel Cabrera. Any advice on who you would target with this pick would be appreciated.
If you took the HR that Fielder hit in Milwaukee and then put those same HR in Detroit, Fielder would have hit 9 less HR. While I don't think he will drop off that much there is some concern that the new park will have a negative effect.
