I'm in a standard yahoo 5x5 mixed rotisserrie league (see below).
I'm drafting #5 in a snake draft. I'm trying to determine my strategy on which positions/players to pick in the first two rounds.
I'm expecting that the first four picks will be Cabrera, Kemp, Pujols, and Braun.
So, my next thought is who should I take at pick #5. If I follow Grey's rankings, I would take Bautista. However, Grey also said to try to take a 1B in the 2nd round if you take Bautista. With this in mind, I'll have pick #20 for my 2nd pick. At that point, I expect at least the top 5 first baseman will be gone (Cabrera, Pujols, Votto, Gonzalez, Fielder). This would leave me with Texieria. I like Tex -- but I'm not sure about the potential BA ~ .265 or less if I draft both.
Thoughts? Thanks in advance for your help.
