With the ninth pick...

Postby RocketsDWM » Wed Mar 20, 2013 9:16 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
6. Joey Votto
7. Albert Pujols
8. Prince Fielder

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.

The Dreadful PIrate and it isn't even close as far as I'm concerned.

Cargo - I like him but you don't get him all season. Will get dinged.
Pitchers...no thanks...not in the first round...especially pick 9

McCutchen but I don't really believe he'll be more valuable than Hamilton, Upton, CarGo, Bautista or Stanton who I all have within $2 of value of him. It is a big glop of OF and I just take one of those with these late picks and then usually a MI on the way back around because I have a big group of MI all valued just under these guys.

Cutch over Cargo, but only for health reasons.

Went with Cargo even though I'd be pretty bummed having to pick him in the 1st round.

Would have taken taken Cargo at 8, so I'll definitely take him at 9.
