Two picks coming up soon, need help! WHIR

Postby mister_jay_peg » Tue Mar 04, 2014 6:52 pm

12 team league, standard 5x5 scoring.

C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, 3OF, 2Util, 3SP 2RP, 3P. 5 total bench spots.

My roster right now is:

C Salvador Perez, KC
1B Eric Hosmer, KC
2B Jed Lowrie, Oak
3B Aramis Ramirez, Mil
SS J.J. Hardy, Bal
OF Giancarlo Stanton, Mia
OF Andrew McCutchen, Pit
OF --OPEN--
UTIL Josh Donaldson, Oak
UTIL --OPEN--

P Madison Bumgarner, SF
P Huston Street, SD
P --OPEN--
SP Jered Weaver, LAA
SP Mike Minor, Atl
SP Cole Hamels, Phi
RP Sergio Romo, SF
RP Jason Grilli, Pit

SO...

I know I need to grab a 3rd OF. That's without a doubt. (I do have Billy Hamilton waiting for a call up on Day 1, but either way, need the OF).

Now, with the OTHER pick, do I grab a 5th starter like Burnett? Or do I go for IF depth?

Thanks ahead guys!

If you could post a handful of the guys that are available it would be very helpful. Otherwise I am really throwing darts as to what you should or shouldn't do.

It's not a sexy pick, but sign me up for Kuroda. I'd also take the chance on Dominic Brown here as your 2nd pick.

I would tend to agree wit this, as Kuroda really helps the peripherals. You need some steals big time, so make sure the two bats you get can run (think Martin).

I would pass on the infielders until later.

Domonic Brown would be top of the queue. I think you need some SB and I'd target Aoki, Martin, and Bourn.

As far as pitchers go, I like Burnett and Kuroda. I would take Kuroda for the cheap ratios but couldn't fault the Burnett pick either if you want to pile on K's without hurting your ratios.

Brown/Martin/Murphy.... I like Murphy as real insurance on Lowrie.

Ditto. You might reverse the order as usually Brown will go a lot sooner than Kuroda in most leagues.

I would go with Brown and one of Bourn, Upton, Martin, or Murphy. Wait on INF depth and pitching. Maybe not with these two picks but with one of your next two I'd go with Archer and one of Headley or Brooksy if available.
