I'm very excited for the fantasy baseball season to start! Got fantasy baseball on the brain!!
I'm picking 3rd. My keepers are Ellsbury, J. Upton, mcCutchen, Beltre, Castro, M. Stanton, b. lawrie, and D. Jennings. Weird league. Long story how I ended up with that mix. So I'm OF heavy. 9 team league. 3OF/2Util. We keep 5 (plus up to 3 "prospects"). Max keeper length is 3 years.
Lots of big bats available this draft. Kemp, pujols, Miggy Cabrera, Tulo, Fielder to name a few. Top SP this time around too (Doc, Verlander, etc). One other bat available is Evan Longoria.
Picking 3rd, I'm all for best player available. I am guessing Cabrera and Tulo go 1-2. Would I be crazy to go Longoria at 3? I already have Beltre. But Longo is young (entering his prime now), went 30/100 with a crazy low BABIP in only 460 AB's last season. My only chance to get him is round 1. Would it be dumb to pass up Albert or Kemp?
