Draft and Keeper questions...

Postby McDavitt05 » Mon Mar 11, 2013 2:27 pm

I'm in a 10 team head to head league and this is our first year doing keepers. You get up to 6 keepers, and you lose draft picks 1-6 based on their rankings. So if you choose 6 guys you automatically lose picks 1-6, but say you keep 3 and they are ranked 4, 23, and 45 you would lose your 1st, 3rd, and 5th pick. So I chose to keep 4 guys Aramis Ramirez (80), Victor Martinez (88)(I know risky, but I think he could be a top 5 catcher this year), RA Dickey (50), and James Shields (91)(he's been a top 10 pitcher in FP last 2 seasons so don't know why he's ranked so low). So I lost picks 3-6. Only 1 other person chose to keep less than 6 so we have the only picks in the first 2 rounds, I have picks 1 and 4 he has 2 and 3. Who should I go for?
TL;DR- I have the 1st and 4th overall picks who should I pick?

My thoughts are CC with the first, and Holliday if he's there with the 4th.
Is Bumgarner going to continue getting better? Is Aroldis going to be a successful starter? Could Aaron Hill repeat last years performance?
Any thoughts are appreciated.

Pitching seems to get some nice points, but I would go with Heyward and Holliday in this keeper league. Bumgarner would be third. Keep an eye on youth in a keeper league, as CC and a few of your keepers (Martinez, Dickey, Ramirez) are getting up there in age and possible injury concerns.
