#2 Pick - Kemp? Pujols? Bautista? Braun? WHIR

Postby DaveClay12 » Mon Mar 26, 2012 7:14 pm

I'm assuming Miguel Cabrera will be gone. This is a hth weekly keeper league, but you can only keep at most 1 of your top 3 picks (long story, but should be a fun league). Categories are BA, OPS, HR, R, RBI, SB... Who do I take? in a vacuum I'd take Pujols - more consistent, and just a better hitter (compare BB/K ratios), but there are so many good 1B, and I need 3 OF... ARRRRGGGHHH! Help. Should I consider Bautista, seeing as how he qualifies at 3B/OF? Braun?

Would love to hear any good arguments... I've gone at this so many ways, and can't come to a conclusion...

Leave a link, and I'd be glad to help you out in return.

Thanks!

Dave

Because this pick is most likely going to be the keeper of the top three, then Kemp.

Without the keeper, I'd recommend Pujols.

Please help with my question. Here is the link.

I think I would take Braun or Kemp. I would probably lean towards Kemp but I could go either way here.

Not crazy at all. Tulo has the biggest gap between 1 and 2 at any position. However his durability would prevent me from picking him here. I'd look for him at 4-6.
