Is this the advice thread? If so, sticky?


I don't like having the 1st pick either. I've always liked middle position. In a league of 12 teams, the 6th pick or something like that is what I look for.

Did you get Grady & Rollins on the 2nd/3rd turnaround, then Haren & Cain 4th/5th?

I'm interested to see what kind of numbers Sizemore puts up this year.

The last 5 rounds I had no idea where I wanted to go... I think I might part with some of those guys once the season starts rolling.

My drafts are going to be during the week of March 7-13. Yeah, I don't like doing drafts this early, either.

My draft is March 2nd I think. I don't like the early slot either, but the commissioner of the league insisted.

Buys on both. Santana should be a steal, and Grady will be a 5 category player this year.

I'm selling on Greinke, I need consistency to have him be a high pick. Plus he's on the Royals, who don't win a lot of games. Sure he could be good for ERA and K's, but you do need W's too.

I asked this at the end of last season. Need advice. Should I keep Papelbon, Manny, Ethier or Werth? Rotisserie league.

Dump Manny. He will be limited this year, and he won't be the same. I have a hard time seeing Ethier doing what he did again this year... Keep Paps and Werth. Werth is going to post good numbers this year again.

I'd keep Werth. Papelbon cut it really close in a lot of games last season, this may be the year he implodes. Just my two cents. No bias

I would say it's a toss up. I would take whichever for the position you have the least amount of depth in. If you don't have closers, take Paps, if you don't have a #1 OF take Werth. He will be a top OF this year.

I agree with Proshares, except for different reasons


Having a solid OF to me is more important than saves IMO. Plus Werth's upside is greater than Paps.

Werth is playing for a contract.

You can get saves by picking up players like Ryan Franklin and David Aardsma.
