cole #2 overall? WHIR


Recommended Posts

in my keeper league where u keep 4, I am keeping 4 hitters (acuna, Merrifield, alvarez, gleyber).. I am picking either 1 or 2.. first place picks where he wants to draft. assuming he takes trout - lindor, Bellinger, yelich, and story are being kept..

so basically it would be either betts or cole based on rankings ive seen.. the league is h2h categories. 7 offensive 7 pitching.. for some reason my league drafts pitchers early because they are nervous they  wont get good ones.

if trout is there, go him obv right? if not.. think cole is a smarter option over say betts? figured if I go hitter.. by the time I pick itll be 20 picks later.

Tough choice. Me, personally, I’m taking Betts. I will then see what kind of pitching is out there for the next couple rounds.

 

I UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU ARE BOTH COMING FROM BUT IVE SEEN A LOT OF REPORTS SAYING HE WONT STEAL MUCH THERE. IF THAT DROPS, HES NOT A TOP 10 GUY. FIGURED COLE IS SAFER BASED ON MY 4 HITTERS BEING KEPT

No pitcher is safe.  Betts is headed to the pitcher's paradise in LA.  Basically comes down to who you feel more comfortable with.  Both should be fairly safe picks, but whether they give you first round or third round value is anyone's guess imo (assuming they stay healthy of course).

How come Betts gets downgraded going to LA?

I get the pitchers park move.

But nobody worries Cole in NY could be Sonny Gray?

Cole has way more risk in my eyes.

Mookies skills will play anywhere.

And LA could be 1st in runs, 3rd at worst.

Nobody knows how players will react as NYY

Ed Whitson, Kenny Roger's, sonny gray, mike stanton, stand up please.

True, but you are talking about a player that played in Houston and in the playoffs, not some loser who never played a meaningful game in his career prior to that.
