I have the first pick in a keeper league fully redrafting this season. Not sure who I should go with? I know Pujols is the #1 player in baseball he is 31 years old (maybe), but Tulo is only 26 and Hanley is 27.
My gut is telling me shortstop is the way to go with the depth at 1B, but I am a little worried about Hanley as my top player. His HRs,avg., and SBs have all gone down over the past few years. He also started getting tired at the end of last season. At 27(if he is) that worries me.
Tulo does have some injury concernes, but probably would have had 35+ homeruns last year if he did not miss time with a broken wrist.
Roster Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, IF, LF, CF, RF, OF, Util, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL
Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS)
Pitchers Stat Categories: Wins (W), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)
I think Tulo may be the way to go. He is a guy entering his prime at a very thin position and could put up monster numbers if healthy for a whole season. Any thoughts? WHIR
