Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
5x5 roto (weekly head to head). My first 3 keepers are no brainers (Goldschmidt, Chris Davis, Fernandez in favorable rounds). Pick 2 of these last few to keep!
Kenley Jansen 13th round
Julio Teheran 16th round
Yu Darvish 3rd round
Gerrit Cole 19th round
I like the value of Cole, Teheran, and Jansen, and may be able to draft Darvish mid-2nd anyways, thoughts?
I agree on keeping hitters over pitchers, but my hitter values just aren't that enticing...
Votto with 1st round pick (already have the best 2 first basement, this would be excessive)
Wright with 1st round pick (I could redraft him in the 2nd round)
Justin Upton with 2nd round pick (I could redraft him in the 2nd or 3rd)
The only guy I'd even consider is Mccann who I could keep with my 11th round pick. But I feel the way about catchers that you all do about closers, just not worth it for how many are out there!
So Teheran, Cole & Fernandez in the late rounds, and then I'll just load up on position hitters with my first bunch of rounds and still field a strong pitching staff with that core.
The cost goes up 2 rounds each year, so next year they'd all cost me a pick 2 rounds higher, can keep 3 years. So as soon as next year, Darvish would be a first rounder (not doing that!) whereas Cole would only cost my 17th pick and by then may be a top 15 pitcher.
