What to do?

Postby abellone » Sun Feb 21, 2010 6:45 pm

I am in a ten team H2H league. The draft order just came out and I have the first pick. We can trade picks before the draft. Would you keep the first pick and go with Pujols, and then wait until 20 and 21, or would you trade number one for a later pick?

Also, if I did take Pujols, should I stay away from pitching until the later rounds and just concentrate on my batters? I was thinking maybe Victor Martinez if he was still available when I make my second and third picks.

Any thoughts?

I would not trade away the number one overall draft pick.
I would focus on hitting early and look for your first pitcher between the 4-6th rounds.
I wouldn't draft Victor Martinez at 20 or 21. He's a catcher on the wrong side of 30. I bet he still puts up solid numbers in the Sox lineup, but hes still just a catcher. With the 20th pick you could get someone like Justin Upton, Jose Reyes etc who should produce more than Victor Martinez.
Go Jay Bruce. Credits to Super Manny.
