Kemp '08 numbers (pre 1st round status)

April - .848 ops
May - .648 ops
June - .725 ops
July - .959 ops
August - .780 ops
Sept/Oct - .749 ops


Now this year with a late first round pick, I am staring at Justin Upton wondering what can happen. Check out his numbers last year.

April - .745
May - 1.154
June - .915
July - .750
Aug - 1.212
Sept - .758


Kemp was 25 last year, Upton is only 22 this year (23 in Aug.)

...but, we all remember Griffey Jr. season in '93 when he was 23 years old, he flat took off and raked that year.



I only bring this up again because being in a league with 3 grand ups for first place, my first & second pick will make or break me, having the last pick in a 14 man. It would be very difficult to leave Wright or Longo on the board to take Upton but last year with I rode my buddy for taking Kemp at pick 35 over Youk, well let's just say I I bought him several steak dinners last summer.

I'd take one of those 3rd basemen over Upton.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

3rd/4th round is a lot different from the 1st round to me. I go by the philosophy that your first pick or two should be anchors for the rest of your team, if you want to get a little frisky after that, by all means go for it.
