    Fantasy Baseball

    Alright baseball guys. I have the #4 pick tonight. It is a keeper league. I am assuming Pujols and Hanley go 1-2 in the draft. Who do I take #4?

    Braun?
    Longoria?
    Utley?
    ARod?

    Re: Fantasy Baseball

    I would say Utley or Longoria. Its really a tossup between those two.

    Re: Fantasy Baseball

    I would take Utley; would get you a good number of steals, dingers and rbis. Also, doesn't strike out a lot. ARod is injury prone, Braun can be inconsistent. I would take Longoria if Utley is taken....
    Just my two cents.

    Re: Fantasy Baseball

    I'd take Braun or maybe even Kemp or Fielder. they are all about 26-27 years old. Braun and Kemp are 5 tool players. Utley and Arod are older and probably on the down side of their careers.

    Braun
    Fielder
    Longoria
    Arod
    Kemp
    Utley

    It doesn't matter 85. You will LOSE.

    Braun is a great fantasy player but OF is deep, 2B isn't.

    We are in the same league. Just talking a little trash.

    I can't believe you took Barry Bonds with the 6th pick. You need to stick to 3 things. Cyclone athletics, Nascar, and WWE

    That is why I was leaning heavily towards Utley or Longoria. Just went with Braun though. We will see

    Re: Fantasy Baseball

    OF is deeper, but in a keeper league, it's hard to argue against Braun. With your first pick in a keeper league, you can't miss on that pick.

    Braun was a great pick in the keeper league. I had the #2 pick and went with Arod this year. If it was a keeper league, I'd have gone with Hanley, Braun, or Longoria. Probably in that order.

    The more I think about it I like it. Braun has put up ridiculous #'s his first three years and we are keeping 4 guys a year, for 6 years. Then we will start over.

    I got Braun, Justin Upton, Adrian Gonzalez (please trade him!), CC Sabathia, and Victor Martinez with my top 5 picks

    Re: Fantasy Baseball

    sounds like you got a pretty good outfield 85 ... i had mine last night also and ended up with the last pick so i took lincecum and kemp ... some reason all the top 1B went high and didn't wana reach ... so i was able to wait and grab sandavol and roberts the 2nd time around ... did build a pretty nice pitching staff including lincecum, lee, hamels, and garza
