Sleeper pick on your team is Trevor Cahill. Great year last year, increased use of a faster slider yielded higher swinging strike rates, a sign of breakout 2013. Think about it before Dunn who will still be on the boards for many rounds of the draft. Also, is Rutledge going to be that much better than the best available shortstop for redraft?
That is the thing with Rutledge, because I have Cano and Reyes at 2B and SS respectively, I think he is a luxury pick. If I drop Olt he will be taken before I pick, guaranteed. Grandal and Singleton maybe no because of the 50 game suspensions but I know many owners who are in love with them. I agree with Cahill but I think I can redraft him in the 4th or 5th round. These guys mostly go young, first couple round consists of very few now talent (maybe 5-7 guys) most pick youth.
I am thinking that I need to go Grandal, Cano, Reyes, Olt(1B/3B eligible) Upton Stanton McCutchen Jones, Kershaw, Anderson Cole and then one of Singleton, Alonso, Dunn, LaRoche. Singleton has the highest upside and I think he will take over at 1B for the Astros soon after his suspension is over bc of talent and the fact that Brett Wallace is hot trash.
