1st pick next season

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

1st pick next season

Postby Abdoozy » Sun Oct 04, 2015 3:38 pm

Grey -- Thanks for another year of world-class FBB punditry, along with a lotta laughs. I won my ESPN H2H money league for the 3rd time in 4 seasons, mainly because it's obvious nobody else in the league knows Razzball.com exists. And in my first try at RCL, I took home that trophy with 104 points (presumably everybody in that league reads the site so I'll take partial credit there).

Question is regarding next year's H2H draft (12 teamer w/OPS, QS). This is the first season we've had keepers. Two per team. I've never drafted a P in the first round since Halladay in 2011 and we know how that turned out. The earliest I've grabbed a starter since is week 4. Starters are like gold in this league -- 3 went in the first round this season -- and I've always taken your advice regarding starters. But: Considering my keepers are Trout and Harper, who I'm thinking will both be top 5 next season (at least), would you use a first round pick on Kershaw if available? Or would you still rather have, say, Goldschmidt or Donaldson?

tl;dr: would two guaranteed high-first-round keeper bats alter your "don't draft stud SPs high, plenty of good arms available later" philosophy?

Just planning ahead. Again, thanks for all the great advice. I stay up late most nights just to check in at 12:05 Pacific. Cuts into my work schedule, but hey, priorities.

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.
Thanks!

Considering Kershaw went with the 5th overall pick this season, he's not likely to be around by round 3.

I'll drive off that bridge when I come to it. Enjoy your offseason!
