Draft Help

Postby TurdFerguson » Fri Jan 17, 2014 10:42 pm

Our minor league draft just started and Kris Bryant went first. Im picking third and it seems Appel or Gray will be available. Who would you rather have of the two? Its seems Gray has a little more upside but hate having Rox pitchers. Would anyone pass on these two for someone like Abreu or the Japanese pitcher? We are drafting from last years amateur draft. Any help would be appreciated.

I would take Abreu or Tanaka. There's so much potential upside with those two that I would chance it without (much) hesitation.

I only wish ESPN would release those guys into the player pool before they reset for 2014 season (I'm #1 on the waiver waire and have been waiting for them for months, lol!).

Good luck with the draft.

If I was drafting for an actual MLB team, I'd likely take Gray but for fantasy purposes, Clint Frazier has much more potential than any MiLB pitcher.

Thanks guys. I really need pitching help. I like Clint Frazier a lot but I need to go the pitching route. Tanaka might get taken with this 2nd from what I was told. I like Gray more than Appel but hate that he will be pitching in Coors.

If Tanaka is there I'd try to trade the pick. Gray is the best of the pitchers by far IMO. I don't like the Rockie thing either, but I think he is that good and needs to go ahead of all of the other pitchers.

I think Tanaka is about to go with the second pick. I think Grays upside is just to good to pass up even though he will pitch half his games in Coors. There is just something about Appel that makes me want to pass anyways
