Early draft strategy help (keeper) WHIR! in Bench Coach Help Forum Posted March 9, 2020 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.
