You may not get Tulo at 15 if people are concerned about their view of position scarcity. If you can get both of those guys that's a solid combination, though you're taking two guys with recent and frequent injury history. You may want to swap one out (whoever is left at 15/18 perhaps) and get someone who might last the year.

Please take a look if you can: http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=455876

Thanks.
You are right I am just not sure who will be available. Strasberg could be there as well. I just Hamilton less than longoria and tulo.

Tulo/Longo are great picks there if available I'd pass on Hamilton.

I think you just take the tried and true "best player available," factoring in you own +/-'s and appetite for risk/reward (and potential injury guys).

In looking at you picks (#15, #18, #47, #50, #79, #82), I'm trying to figure out the best spot to grab an top SP. I think your first two picks should net you some great hitters, especially if some of the top SPs go ahead of you. Your 3rd/4th rounders could get you a Wainwright/Greinke/Gonzalez w/o reaching, and a Weaver/Hamels if you get really lucky.

Definitely hitter in rds 1/2 and you could still net a nice #1 SP in the 3rd or 4th.

Tulo/Longora could be a great duo, but you're going to have to embrace some serous injury risk that early. If it pans out you could net two top-10 players by season's end, but the downside is pretty significant for a players that early in the draft, hence their potential undervaluation.

Definitely have options.

Good luck.

Fabarren, thank you great suggestions. Not that i am over thinking this a bit, but who are the safer picks than tulo and longoria? i completely agree with risk reward.
HAmilton
Posey
Peoria
Kinsler
Holiday
Upton.

Upton and kinsler seem to be least injury risk, but both are a reach at 15 and 18. Thanks for the advice.
