Choose My Keeper..Draft My Pick

Postby moozzy77 » Thu Jan 17, 2013 11:03 pm

12T 2h2 (R, HR, RBI, XBH, SB, AVG, OPB)

Would you keep: J.Upton or A. Gonzalez?

You have the 6th pick in the draft. How would you rank these players...Assuming you are going to continue to keep Upton for the foreseeable future...

A.Jones
Beltre/Kinsler (Hasn't decided on his keeper)
Bautista
Wright
Holliday
Teixeira
Harper
Heyward
Bruce
Goldschmidt
Granderson
Hanley
Zimmerman
A. Ramirez
Posey

I can get another one of these players in the 2nd round..

Keep: J.Upton

I didnt rank these guys in a particular order, because I think it may depend on who is already on your team. But this was my top tier 7

Beltre
Bautista
Wright
Holliday
Harper
Heyward
Posey

Upton

If you can keep him Harper. If you can't I like Bautista.

Upton. And if this is a situation where you can keep these guys long term, I think Harper and Heyward are in a class by themselves.

Yup. But I put Upton in that same group. It's not like he's old.

Thanks for the feedback. We are only allowed to keep one hitter each season but for as long as we want. My plan is to keep Justin Upton year in and out, so I'm really only drafting for next season. Unless you think I should draft harper or heyward to keep forever but I see Bautista as a good short term option (but i smell PEDs)

Agree top 7, not in that order, need more of your team info to rank these guys.
