Who Should I draft first few?

Postby Mateo de Lorenzo » Wed Mar 09, 2011 10:54 pm

I'm in a keeper league and I have the first pick. I have the following picks 1, 11, 12, 28, 29. I just traded Jimenez for Matt Holliday, and my other keepers are Jaime Garcia (SP), Joe Nathan (closer), Brett Anderson (SP), Freddie Freeman (1B), Jayson Werth (OF). The league has all positions PLUS one CI slot and one MI slot.

Because I traded Ubaldo, should I pick up Lincecum number one? Or should I get Zimmerman (third base is thin) or Fielder (declining three years in a row) or Lincecum? I am thinking Kershaw may be available at 11. I am esxpecially interested in who I should take first, second and third. Obviously, two and three would be projected on who is still available, which I understand is difficult but any help is appreciated. I am thinking with my 5th round pick of picking up Marmol

I can choose between:

Ryan Zimmerman
Prince Fielder
Tim Lincecum
Dustin Pedroia
Cliff Lee
Josh Johnson
Victor Martinez
CC Sabathia
Shin-Soo Choo
Ian Kinsler
**11th available** Chase Utley
Ichiro Suzuki
Shane Victorino
Justin Morneau
Dan Uggla
Clayton Kershaw
Dan Haren
Jered Weaver
Andre Ethier
Brian McCann
Jimmy Rollins
Brian Wilson
Matt Cain
Heath Bell
Martin Prado
Rickie Weeks
Mat Latos
Joakim Soria
Alex Rios
Brian Roberts
Brandon Phillips
Derek Jeter
Yovani Gallardo
Hunter Pence
Josh Beckett
Trevor Cahill
Clay Buchholz
Corey Hart
BJ Upton
Chris Young
Carlos Marmol
Billy Butler
Mariano Rivera
Please help me with analyzing my team? viewtopic.php?f=29&t=433592

I concur with the above... Zimmerman is your best bet here.
