Quick Draft Help - I Have First Pick

Postby tmyanks24 » Tue Feb 22, 2005 9:47 am

Just to make sure...

I have the first pick in an 8-team snake draft that starts in about 15 minutes. It's a 5X5 H2H league with this roster breakdown.

C, 1b, 2b, ss, 3b, if, lf, rf, cf, of
SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P
BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN

Does the slightly unusual roster setup mean that I should consider not taking A-Rod with my first overall pick, as I was planning on doing?

I'd take Pujols, I wouldn't even consider ARod with this pick

I wouldn't take ARod first in any format. :)
It shouldn't really matter too much as you just have an extra if and Of.
Keep care of the OF, as you have LF, RF and CF.
IMO I like Beltran, but it's hard to mess up the first pick no matter who you take, barring some jobber.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

3B is really deep this year, you can snatch a very good player in the 5th. AROD just isn't as good in Yankee stadium as he was in Texas. He's still great, but I like Beltran, Pujols, Vlad much more.
