What to target with the first pick of redraft

Postby baseballnorth » Tue Mar 05, 2013 5:02 pm

Grey, as we make our final selections for our 8 keepers + 1 player exceeding rookie status (DK) for my 16 team 6x6 keeper this is what I am looking to carry over:

C: Posey
SS: Castro
3B: Machado (DK)
RF: J. Upton
CF: McCutchen
LF: CarGo
Util: Beltran

SP: Lee
SP: Cueto
* I have Bruce Rondon stashed on my minor league team.

I have the 3rd pick in the redraft portion, and I was looking for advice as to what to target, there will be a lot of 1B from your Cougar Love tier, of which I was originally looking to grab the highest ranked, there is also a chance I could look to fill my 2nd base whole here, with Weeks and Bonifacio being the two highest available, or do I look to go with another pitcher? In the past few years is is usually the 2nd or 3rd redraft round that closers start to fly off the board.

My gut says to grab the best available 1B, but there is a lot of guys who seem likely to put up similar stats (Morneau, Laroche, Morales, Berkman), while getting Weeks here could be nice I think a guy like Bonifacio may be more useful to put me over the top in runs and sb, and I think grabbing him here might be too early. I feel confident with my pitching but if I could grab Samardzija or Morrow here would that be better, and then wait to see what is left in terms of 1B and 2B?

Weekes would be my choice without knowing exactly who else is available. From the 1B you mention, I think you can wait until your next couple picks.
