Our keeperleague draft is this Saturday and I could use some good insight. 10 teams, H2H (5-8 starts per week), 5x5, C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, OF, OF, U, SP, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P with 4 bench spots. We keep 6 and I have the #3 overall pick.
Best available (lots of pitchers):
I just counted 14 pitchers being kept that include Olsen and Sowers (rookie keepers) so we are looking at only 12 legitimate pitchers being kept. One closer is being kept, Ryan.
My initial thinking is to go pitching with either Nathan or Felix (although Harden is looking really good right now). I would like to get a good backup for Sheets, someone with a ridiculous upside. I don't think either will make it back to me as Nathan will be the first closer taken. Felix is young and his upside is high so I expect him to go with the first 15 picks.
Is my offense good enough that I can go with pitching right away? Or do I have too many corners and I should grab someone like Furcal or Damon who are very safe bets? Or McCann? OF is always a tough position to fill.
