Picking 12th...

Postby Steve » Thu Feb 12, 2009 1:25 pm

Ok - so was doing a 12-team mock yesterday and picked out of the 12th spot. Took Utley at 12 and Beltran at 13. However, by the time it got to my pick in the 3rd, I was standing in the middle of a virtual 1B wasteland and ended up taking A-Gonz at 36. I can't put my finger on it (and I could be wrong), but something about that pick just doesn't feel right.

I ended up taking Votto for my Util spot anyway a couple of rounds later, so should I have skipped A-Gonz for someone else at 36?

Would appreciate any opinions/comments/etc

A-Gonz will beat Morneau in power numbers and they're virtually equal overall. Morneau went at 19 and you grabbed A-Gonz in the 30s. What I'm saying is, the A-Gonz pick is just fine.

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.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
