Am I Crazy?

Postby KevPen » Sun Mar 10, 2013 12:26 pm

I have a draft coming up next weekend and I have the 9th pick. This is a keeper league in which I am keeping Trout, Gio Gonzalez, Craig, Strasburg and Rizzo. Kemp is going to be kept. So I think I may be crazy for possibly taking Reyes if Cabrera, Braun, Pujols, Votto, Cano, Tulowitzki, Fielder and Bautista are gone. The main big name that I wouldn't be possibly taking is Verlander. This is a H2H points league. I am concerned about SS and 2B drying up very fast. I already have Strasburg and Gio. Castro, Zobrist and possibly Rollins possibly will be kept. So the well may even dry up faster. So, am I crazy to potentially take Reyes over Verlander in my situation?

Yes, I think you are crazy taking Reyes over Verlander. You may be in nice shape with Strasburg/Gio, but getting Verlander in an H2H league will give you a strong chance to win each week for most pitching stats. Also, there are some solid 2B/SS later in the draft, so you don't have to put all the money on getting a big name like Reyes. Plus, Reyes' hamstrings and 3 category ability in good health doesn't top a consistent ace like Verlander. If you change your mind later, you will likely be very able to flip Verlander for a top MI.

Hmm.

Reyes is an intriguing pick. I think I'd take Andrus a few rounds later and go with Verlander here.

Don't worry about position scarcity...take the best player with your first pick

I think you have to take Verlander if the alternative is Reyes. Worse comes to worse, you should be able to trade him for better than Reyes somewhere down the line, and ride his pitching greatness until then.
