First time drafting Need opinions

Postby fatnub2339 » Sun Mar 20, 2005 6:38 pm

I did my first FBL Draft last night, and I was overall pretty happy with how i drafted. However, I think I went a BIT too heavy on the hitting side and left the pitching side a bit too thin. Here's my roster
(5x5 12man standard yahoo league)
C-Lo Duca
1B-Huff
2B-Durham
3B-Blalock
ss-Kaz Matsui
OF-Gurrero
OF-Sheffield
OF-Wells
UTIL-Wilkerson
BN:
Sexson
P Wilson
Morneau
Ford
Giambi

SP-Prior
SP-Willis
RP-Mota
RP-Takatsu
P-Hawksins
P-Lowe
P-Rusch

As you can see, I have a lot of quality hitters, but my pitching's somewhat questionable. WHat should I do? Should I trade for a pitcher or two and if so what kind of pitcher should I go after and offer for? Thanks in advance

It seems a bit unnecessary to have so many quality hitters on your bench (Sexson, Morneau, Ford, P.Wilson, possibly Giambi). As it currently stands, it's a poor allocation of resources, as most of that value will be wasted. I would strongly suggest using your bench to trade for two pitchers north of Willis (preferrably those with a high K-rate). Besides if your league allows daily roster changes, most of your bench should be made up of pitchers anyway. (You're also a bit lacking in speed, so you could seek an upgrade there, but I'd worry about the pitchers first.) Good luck.

Sexson or Morneau should get you get you a good starter. Who would that be??? Chris Carpenter perhaps? Mulder? It depends on who has an extra pitcher to be had. Hope this helps.
