5th Pick- Who do I take?

Postby FinsFan22 » Fri Feb 18, 2005 1:18 pm

I've got the fifth pick in a non-keeper yahoo league. Assuming pujols, arod, beltran and vlad go before me, who do I take. I'm leaning towards Tejada, Bonds or Manny. reply with help


Here are the categories:

runs, hits, bb's, hr's, rbi, sb, total bases, avg, ops

app, w,cg, sv, holds, k's, era, whip, k/bb

Tejada. He is going to have a similar season to last year and is by far the most valued SS at a somewhat thin position for HR and RBI.

Bonds, Bonds, Bonds, and if you didn't hear me...BONDS!!! Your league counts walks AND OPS, gotta take the most dominant player ever in those categories.

I didnt see OPS. I agree with the others now, take Bonds and dominate the OBP and OPS catergories.

Has to be Bonds. I'm surprised he fell to #5 in this format. :-?

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Yeah, if you count OBP then you have to go Bonds. He will walk a ton of times this year yet again along with his hitting, so you could win that category dang near every week.
