It's the late 18th round and I have 2 picks coming up soon. I'm contemplating who to take next. This is a straight up fantasy point league...I listed the scoring below. In our league we have a maximum games played for our offense of 1620 games. That is calculated by starting a C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, Utility Infielder, and 4 OFs and mulitplying the # of positions by 162. Obviously players miss time here and there, and we have the option to start 2 Catchers to offset those missed games, so I, unlike some others, think a decent second catcher is a key.
That being said I need to fill my second catcher hole, utility infielder, and a backup SS to start of the season in place of Jose Reyes because he needs 15 games at SS to qualify there in Sandbox. Right now i'm thinking K. Matsui is the top SS left, Ben Brousard as the top utility guy left, and M. Leiberthal as the top catcher left....
Heres some other players that are available at each position:
C-Closser, Barrett, Buck, Inge
1B-Overbay, Pena, D. Young, D. Erstad
SS-K. Greene, J. Wilson, Eckstein, Lugo, Crosby
SP(even though I have 6 already)-C. Lee, J. Williams, R. Lopez, B. Lawrence
As of now i'm thinking Matsui and then Lieberthal on the way down...but i'm still undecided. I figure Broussard has the best chance at falling back to me after these 2 picks. Thoughts?
