Am I Crazy?

Postby KevPen » Sun Mar 10, 2013 12:26 pm

I have a draft coming up next weekend and I have the 9th pick. This is a keeper league in which I am keeping Trout, Gio Gonzalez, Craig, Strasburg and Rizzo. Kemp is going to be kept. So I think I may be crazy for possibly taking Reyes if Cabrera, Braun, Pujols, Votto, Cano, Tulowitzki, Fielder and Bautista are gone. The main big name that I wouldn't be possibly taking is Verlander. This is a H2H points league. I am concerned about SS and 2B drying up very fast. I already have Strasburg and Gio. Castro, Zobrist and possibly Rollins possibly will be kept. So the well may even dry up faster. So, am I crazy to potentially take Reyes over Verlander in my situation?

Yes, I think you are crazy taking Reyes over Verlander. You may be in nice shape with Strasburg/Gio, but getting Verlander in an H2H league will give you a strong chance to win each week for most pitching stats. Also, there are some solid 2B/SS later in the draft, so you don't have to put all the money on getting a big name like Reyes. Plus, Reyes' hamstrings and 3 category ability in good health doesn't top a consistent ace like Verlander. If you change your mind later, you will likely be very able to flip Verlander for a top MI.

Hmm.

Reyes is an intriguing pick. I think I'd take Andrus a few rounds later and go with Verlander here.

Don't worry about position scarcity...take the best player with your first pick
