2nd overall (12 team snake)

Postby TCRedsox » Sun Feb 27, 2011 7:52 am

I have the 2nd pick in a 12 team Yahoo standard snake draft. The consensus is to go with Han-Ram assuming Pujols is going first, but what if I don't? If I pick Miggy or A-gon or Longo, who, or what position, should I target next?
It seems in the few mocks I've done that I can sometimes get Pedroia, Kemp, or Youk with the next pick. Who should I grab? Or is not picking Hanley just too stupid of a move?

Pick whoever you want- it's your team, if you love Miggy- pick him, cause he's not coming back to you (that's what I call one-way affection).
If it's a keeper-league I would pick a young and healthy player with upside- like Joey Votto, Evan Longorian or David Wright. Pick a player that gives you a solid "backbone" for your team.
Your next move will be pretty much depends on your team-mates. If Dan Uggla is the only 2B left-pick him if you need a solid 2B. If you like a undervalued 2B in the late rounds and thinks he could be my every day man- skip 2B to the later rounds and pick someone else.

So my advice: Pick the guy you want, not the guy you need (damn, I should have drafted player X, I like him a lot - is a common sentence after a draft)
