Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
10 team, standard 5x5 roto, keeper league, we keep 8. I have the #1 overall pick after we all keep our 8 keepers.
These are the 6 I am definitely keeping:
Which 2 would you keep out of the following?
Here are some of the players that will most likely be available for the draft. Also available would be any of the 3 that weren't selected as keepers for my team. Who would you select first overall?
You should keep Soto and not beckett. I Understand he is a big name put pitching can be had later in the draft and picked up as the season goes on. Look at the top pitchers this year in Tim Lincecum and Cliff Lee. Go back and see where they were drafted and i bet you will be surprised.
As for the first pick out of all the players out there i would go Maggs. Good consistent average, 100 RBIs per year and some deccent power.
Soto and Rios would make the most sense to me. IAnd being a Detroiter i would never keep Verlander. It is hard enough picking a consistent pitcher period let alone somebody who has not been consistent. I know he has stud potential, but let others draft potential while you draft proven studs. There are plenty of young guys that have already proven that they are going to consistently put up numbers. I'd take Sheets, Lee or Bedard even up with Verlander.
Verlander and Soto should be the keepers and don't listen to anyone u need to take Ellsbury. I know u really don't need the steals but if u had him u will be alot of runs and high BA. I'm a cubs fan and i believe u should take him with the 1st pick.
ive never heard of a league in which 4 catchers go in the first 4 rounds, let alone the first 2 like the kid above me with mcann suggests... you do have to go with soto though, and probably verlander. he has proven to be elite 2 of his 3 years and is still young, while rios, though he was solid for ONE YEAR, was never ELITE like verlander was. and are you seriously lookin for somebody OTHER then roberts to draft with your first pick in which would be the equivalent of the 9th round in a standard draft (since everyone already has 8 keepers, signifying their first 8 round picks)???? roberts would be a top-4 round talent, GRAB HIM!!!!

the only guy other then roberts to consider is alexei ramirez who just might turn out to be the hanley ramirez of second baseman if he starts running in the majors the way he did in the minors. they did nickname him "the cuban missle" after all for his speed and base stealing in the minors
Soto and Verlander for sure... Im keeping my C McCann because after rd 2 all the good ones are gone. I would look to take Cliff Lee with your first pick if hes not kept. I think he will have another good year if he stays healthy.
