Pick 5 Dynasty

Postby ShizzleMeTimbers » Sun Jan 06, 2013 4:29 pm

Coming off a championship, 10 teams keep 5; cats. are: R, HR, XBH, RBI, K, SB, AVG, OBP// K, QS, CG, W, SV, ERA, WHIP

My team ended up pretty stacked due to some successful selling high/buying low opportunities.

C- J. Lucroy
1B- A. Gonzalez
2B- R. Weeks
3B- C. Headley
SS- S. Castro
MI- H. Ramirez
CI- P. Goldschmidt
OF- J. Upton
OF- D. Jennings
OF- R. Braun
OF- J. Ellsbury
OF- M. Morse
UTIL- A. Rizzo

P- S. Strasburg
--> Not interested in keeping any other pitchers, may possibly go 5 batters.

My ever-changing thoughts of now stand at :
1. Braun
2. Gonzalez
3. Hanley
4. Castro
5. Strasburg

Guess it really comes down to how much optimism there is out there for guys like upton and ellsbury to bounce back, or to believe headley can keep the train rolling.

Braun, Hanley, Castro, Upton and Stras.
Reason why Upton over A-Gon, I think Upton will bounce back and it's only a 10 team league, you should have no problem drafting a 1B and value wise I still think Upton is worth more than A-Gon.

You got 'em right. As the above poster mentioned, there is an argument for Upton vs Gonzalez, but I'm not going there. Gonzalez is the superior hitter in a much better situation. I don't see Upton getting to 100 RBI.

I agree with this, but I'd tend to lean Upton... his place on the development curve versus A-Gon's is what swings it for me. It's close, though, and I"m not sure there's a 100% correct way to go here.

Agree with the rest including going with Upton. Might be a man crush thing though.
