14 team league - 25 man rosters, only keep 8...standard 5 x 5
This is year 5 - I finished 1st in year 1, 13th, 14th, 14th...
So I have 1st overall pick and I've picked up extra picks in round 2 and 5
plus 2 extra picks in round 4 heading into the draft
No brainers - Longoria, Tulowitzki, Ellsbury, Harper, Darvish
I need to keep 3 more players, with the following being my best options
Tim Lincecum, Melky Cabrera, Carlos Santanta, Anthony Rizzo, Jesus Montero, Jurickson Profar, Billy Hamilton, Dylan Bundy
I'm leaning toward Lincecum, Profar, and Melky...I think Lincecum will bounce back, he had a solid second half and a great playoffs.
Profar is considered the best prospect in baseball and although blocked by Andrus and Kinsler, I think they will find him ABs
(I'm keeping him more for long range value at 2B), and I think Melky, although his average will fall down to .285-.290 will be on a
great Blue Jays offense...300, 100, 20, 80, 15 is not out of the question (if he doesn't get suspended again!) I'm not sold that
his production came from PEDs
I'm not keeping Rizzo because I think there will be 3-4 1B in the same range as him (Hosmer, Ike Davis, maybe Goldschmidt)...
Thoughts, ideas, suggestions, criticism??? Sick and tired of finishing at the bottom and "playing for next year" in May and need some
outside advice...thanks guys
