Keeper League - Who to take with #8 pick

Postby Chilly » Mon Mar 08, 2010 12:17 pm

I'm in a 12 team 5x5 roto league. Each team keeps 15 players, so the pool of leftovers isn't all that appetizing, especially at the 8 spot where I'm picking. We start C,1B,2B,3B,SS,IF,4OF,U,4SP3RP,P

My 15 keepers;
1B - Mi Cabrera
2B- Utley
3B - Zimmerman
SS - Bartlett
IF - Morales
OF - BJ Upton
OF - N. Cruz
OF - Span
OF - Heyward
SP - Lester
SP - U. Jimenez
SP - J. Sanchez
SP - DeLaRosa
RP - Hoffman
RP - F. Cordero

Top available players;
Reyes
Jeter
J. Santana
Berkman
D. Lee
C. Lee
J. Hamilton

I'm guessing these will be the first 7 taken. After that these are the guys available
2B - Uggla
OF- Ibanez, Damon, Magggs, G. Jones, Hawpe, Ludwick
SP - J. Shields, Jackey, oswalt, Burnett, Webb
RP - Marmol, F. Rodriguez, Soria

So who should I target with pick #8? And any thoughts on who to target when it comes back around at pick #17?

Wow, your team's pretty set already. I'd take Ibanez then a catcher or closer.

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!

Thanks for the thoughts. Ibanez looked like the logical choice. If any of the top 7 I listed drop to me, should I take them over Ibanez?

I'm hoping one of the 3 closers I listed make it back to me at 17. Would love to get Soria for some help with ERA and WHIP.

If the choice is between Hamilton and Ibanez, it's going to be a tough call for me. Any of the other 6 will be easy picks.

Would I be crazy to take Soria with the 8 pick? I could really use some ERA/WHIP help and I think I'm a bit shorter on pitching than hitting.

No, I could understand taking a closer. Your hitting's pretty set already.

Reyes is now out 2-8 weeks!! If he falls to me with the 8 pick, do I roll the dice? Or do I play it safe and stick with one of the top 6 (if available) or Ibanez or a RP?

Wait until the 2nd round of your redraft if you want to roll the dice.

I would have to agree with the Ibanez pick, or Soria. I may lean towards Soria bc you have a v good offense.

Im in shock that J. Santana or Jeter weren't top 15 on someone's team.
