With the sixth pick...

Postby RocketsDWM » Sat Mar 16, 2013 7:33 pm

In a series of twelve threads, let's discuss who should be picked where in the first round. Assume standard scoring 12 team H2H re-draft league.

So far we have...

1. Ryan Braun
2. Miguel Cabrera
3. Mike Trout
4. Robinson Cano
5. Matt Kemp

1) Select a player in the poll
2) Feel free to discuss the pros and cons of these players - this could be helpful for some and generate some good discussion.

I chose Votto, primarily because I think the 25-25 types like Cutch and Cargo are overrated in H2H leagues. You can find 1 SB/week elsewhere, but its hard to match Votto's 4-cat production.

I like Pujols just a little more. The downside is injury concerns, but Votto has those too. Not factoring in injury, Votto's ceiling is probably Albert's norm. Most likely they'll finish pretty much even in all categories.

While I think Pujols is in decline I don't really trust Votto's health either so I went with Pujols.

Considering the question marks surrounding each of the options, I chose "Other."

Games played since 2006 for Prince Fielder: 157, 158, 159, 162, 161, 162, 162. Food for thought. ;-)

;-D

I'm warming up to Fielder more and more. I took him at 9th in the slow mock, can see him going even higher due to his reliability, massive power, and not trending downwards.

Im a sucker for a 30-30 potential guy.

I go Cargo all day, his potential is Braun, and his floor is still 300+ 25/20
