    Scherzer 1st round

    Trea Turner 4th round

    Acuna 6th round

    Robert 17th round

    Hiura 16th round

    Wander Franco 16th round

    I have these same 6 too. I dont like Scherzer as a Rd 1 keeper, but my guess is that your league is like mine and f you dont do it then you get none of the top SPs (Cole, JV, Degrom, Scherzer). 

  2. Got it. I understand and respect your point.


    He still had really good numbers last year. Seems like you are assuming 2nd half was the start of the end. I dont necessarily agree with that. I think the risk of Blackmon not producing is lower than for example the risk of Clevinger and Glasnow getting injured.

    I saw your response and dont disagree with it. He has a very good offense already so he could just go SP all the way. I dont like the options he has to go that early. Also,  I just dont like to do that so early on the draft. I try to keep a “best player available” mentality early then fill in the holes. My preference.

    Gore doesn't pitch for Detroit, the question was Garcia or Skubal. 

    There’s another Deivi that pitches for Detroit? I provided other names as potential SP keepers to target which I thought could help him. You submit your replies, dont worry about what I post in a thread that’s not yours.

    Not sure all the Blackmon love?

    He was terrible 3nd half 




    He has been one of the most consistent OFs in the game for the past 3-4 years. Plus, one of the few guys these days that provides power with good avg/obp. Even with the “terrible” 2nd half, he still put up very good numbers. Im not super high on him, but I think he is without a doubt the best player and lowest risk right now of the group provided. From my perspective its all about risk and proven consistent performance. If you take that away, then it would be extremely easy for me. I would go Glasnow, Robert (then Clevinger) first without a doubt since Glasnow could be the next Degrom and Robert could be the next Trout. Perhaps he can afford more risk since he has a really good offensive core. Maybe....

    That would be nice, however I have 2nd 9th and 12th picks and I highly assume all those guys won't all be there at 9 and 12.  One guy has 5th and 6th picks and ZERO SP kept.  1st overall is going to take SP.  I think it will be SP heavy round 1.  

    Top 10 Yahoo ranked pitchers that I could probably get in some combination at 9 and 12 = Castillo, Giolito, Darvish, Syndergaard, Clevinger, Glasnow, Greinke, Berrios, Bauer, Woodruff,


    Ok, then I would go:




    Like I said, I like Robert a lot but you already have 2 stud OFs. If you think Robert might get to you later, then go Abreu.

  6. Update. Im pretty sure Im going to go with Cole, Bregman, Mondesi and marte as 4 of 5 keepers.

    For the 5th, decision is between Degrom in Rd 2 and Bieber in Rd 9. The way my league treats SP, its almost certain that Degrom wont make it to Rd 2 in the draft. I think he’ll be picked between 5-8 in Rd 1. 

    So the questions and arguments/justification Im struggling with are:

    1. Is having a monster 1-2 punch at SP with Degrom and Cole (high K, QS, K/9, etc) worth not having a pick on Rd 2.

    2. I believe there’s a significant difference between Degrom and bieber, but is it or will be enough to justify and outvalue the earlier pick?

    3. I like Bieber, and him pitching well last yeast wasnt really a surprise for me. However, Dominating the way he did was. Is he going to continue that or regress a bit?

    Im very close to a decision and wanted to throw this out there for discussion. Thanks again. I WHIR if you need help. 

  7. I like Robert a lot and he is ready to roll. I think thats a good trade for you right now. Honestly, cant go wrong with either. Probably the best two all around talents.

    The Mondesi trade really depends on your roster and strategy in that league. I think its a good trade buying low on Stanton, but you’ll need to build the rest with pretty good avg/obp guys to balance Stanton. If healthy, I think he’ll hit 40-50 as a yankee. Plus, Mondesi doesnt come without risk either. It was frustrating owning him last year.
