Rank These Players...

Postby Verminator » Thu Mar 29, 2012 11:39 pm

In preparation for my draft, please rank these players. I am in a keeper league with extra picks and have 2 of the first 5 picks at my disposal:

1) Craig Kimbrel
2) BJ Upton
3) ARod
4) Michael Morse
5) Mike Napoli
6) Michael Cuddyer
7) Jayson Werth

... or feel free to recommend another player with a 9th round plus ADP and I will let you know if he is available.

WHIR... of course
When it comes to exaggerating, I always give 110%.

1) Craig Kimbrel-1(my be bias being a braves fan but after last year its hard to go against him)
2) BJ Upton-5 (sounds like injurys are bothering him this year already, im not to sure he can have another 20/20 year but still like him)
3) ARod-2 (just feel like his going to have a huge year batting behind cano this year will only help him, im thinking 30 and 100 again)
4) Michael Morse-4 (guy hits bombs, could be good for 30/80)
5) Mike Napoli-3 (to me 2nd besy catcher option behind McCann but also batting in a stacked rangers lineup is an great option, his hit 20 in the past 3-4 years)
6) Michael Cuddyer-7 (i wouldnt even consider with the other 5 options)
7) Jayson Werth-6 (past his prime)

1. Kimbrel (hes the easy stud here)
2. Upton (the strongest potential stud, but with health questions)
3. Napoli (are you in a 2 catcher league? If so, i might even put him ahead of Upton)
4. Morse (last of the guys i'd actually want to target)
...
sigh...
5. ARod.... I guess... but I really have no interest in him and would never end up with him
6. Werth... so long as he was cheap or a late pick, Id be comfortable plugging him in as a depth OF and he should be fine.
7. Cuddyer. Whatever... he's been mediocre most of his career... and is very unlikely to be a difference maker.

Thoughts on mine please?

I don't really get the Kimbrel #1 votes, especially over Napoli?

I did mentioned about my biased opinion being a braves fan, I agree though its hard to pick a closer #1 but also it's not a terrible choice, he could be the next MO(I hope)

Me either. I own him in a keeper but I don't really like keeping any closer. Plus I'm a little worried he was overworked last year.
