Grey and the masses, need help with my draft

Postby tululush » Mon Jan 27, 2014 2:47 pm

Ok, so I'm preparing for my draft and I need a little help. I'm in a 10 team, h2h, 6x5 with obp, keeper league. Everyone is keeping 3 players. I've been looking over the draft board and trying to plan. I pick 9th after keepers are removed and I'm kind of stuck in no man's land. I don't know who to draft. Ideally I'd like to draft Fielder, Wright, or Beltre but I think all of them will be kept.

My keepers are Trout, Goldschmidt and Segura.

Assuming these are the players available to me who would you draft?

Pujols - too old and injury prone
Bautista - too old
Bruce - too streaky for h2h
best SP available - hate drafting pitching this early
reach for someone like Kipnis or Pedroia to grab best bat at that thin position

Thanks!

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.

Grey, really? I'm shocked to hear you say that. Honestly, with this being a keeper league and your write up for Bruce. I understand that I'm in a h2h league and your rankings knock Bruce down a bit for h2h but of all the guys I listed they're all 30+ hr guys. Pujols and Bautista are older and injury prone and Bruce is streaky. None really steal many bases so with all that said I would have thought you would have gone with the younger guy with the most upside, Bruce.

Not to say I'd really feel overly comfortable with any of these guys, hence me coming to you and Razzball nation. Why would you go Bautista? Does his age, injury and lower average not scare you? At least Bruce has a chance to hit .270-.280. I've never owned him so I don't know how bad owning him in h2h would be.

Out of that group, I like Kipnis. Young secondbaseman entering his prime. Will probably bat third and can provide production across the board.

So all of our keepers were declared. Someone really helped me out by keeping Kemp as a first rounder. Anyways, here is a list of the players that are available and I'm assured at one of them.

Cargo, Fielder, Braun, Cano, Beltre, Wright, Votto, Stanton.

I'm thinking Wright Fielder and Stanton are strong possibilities to fall to me. How would you guys rank them? I'm keeping Trout, Goldschmidt and Segura. So all three available players have their pros and cons.

Wright would fit best with my team since I'm lacking a 3rd baseman
Fielder is the best player available but I already have Goldschmidt
Stanton holds the most value since this is a keeper league

Grey what do you think?

Take Wright. I like Wright over Fielder anyway.
