General Message Board
Miggy. He has been consistent year after year. Trout had a nice year, but slowed down a lot near the end. I don't expect Trout to play as well as he did. Now that teams have good scouting reports on him, they will be able to limit him more.
This is Simple to answer to me. Trout/Braun.
Guys on the Miggy-train, having a high BA/HR/RBIs/Runs scored is great. Where's the SBs? Braun and Trout offer all Miggy has plus SBs. Why is this important? Well you're talking between #1/2/3 picks. Depending how many teams are in League 10 or more, you need to consider the gap in picks. Come next time around there's a high chance you will be drafting a 1b/SP with any of those 3. What will happen is come round 4/5 or 6/7 you will see a glaring hole in SBs and suddenly "Reach" for a player in use of one of those two picks to secure at least someone satisfactory.
I don't like "Reaching" for a pick if it's to fill a weakness on your current team in the first 12rounds. If that "Reach" doesn't pan out for you, you're left with a wasted pick on a category that the pick failed, which was the "Only" reason you picked him in the first place!
Now of course, you could just boot SBs choose Miggy and never look the way for SBs until after round 14/15 on upside players/rookies. Build your team on the strength of all that Miggy provides strength in. HRs,BA,RBIS. So Miggy,Hamilton,Adrian Gonzalez could be your first 3picks. Yes Hamilton and Gonzo have fallen in Mocks in that 20s so it's realistic. That's 125Hrs/300Rbis and a certain .300+BA. with .360+OB. Heck of a start.
