Altuve and Realmuto are the ultimate "scarcity" picks IMO.

You pay for the safety of a position which gets disastrous very quickly.  There are ways of mitigating that I think, but if you want to avoid the crapshoot I get it.

Realmuto- yes. The clear 1 at C. Altuve doesn’t fall into that category for me. At all. Safe floor I suppose, but not an almost guaranteed top 3 at position, like Realmuto is.

In OBP it's close, and I give the edge to Grandal by a little.

Well...particularly in an OBP league, the idea of getting someone who hasn't gotten on base at less than a .353 clip in six years, has slugged above .500 three out of the past 4 years as a position widely bereft of power, I'd feel safe with that guy in the slot.

My general position when dealing with scarcity is to identify the last guy I feel comfortable with rather than first...so I won't be owning either.

But with Altuve's track record...I think you could make worse picks where he's going.  JMO.

I will admit some of this is my own personal bias. I have a tendency to shy away from guys once they reach age 30 and appear to be on the downside. And definitely wasn’t taking OBP into account for this particular draft.

JRam- Any thought go into his early season struggles? His worst months are generally April and May (I’ve owned him in a keeper). Maybe it’s weather, but if he’s slow out of the gate and he only has two months to correct instead of 4, well...

I’m not sure what to think of Yu. You could be right, but he’s older and what we saw was a SSS. Huge boom or bust pick imo

Can't argue with you really on either point.  Banking on huge upside out of these two.  Don't feel terrible about either of their floors though.  And where these two are rather risky picks, I think Albies and Harper are rather safe picks to balance my team out a bit.

The thing about JRam that is great is that even when he’s struggling, he keeps running. He’ll hit some HRs. His floor is great for those reasons.

I said I *could* change it, but I thought finding a replacement for absentee owners was a better option.

Now that you guys are farther along, I'll change it to 4 when the 12th round starts.
