Ichiro a good first pick in my 10X10?

Postby TheMeXiKaN » Thu Mar 31, 2005 2:04 pm

I got Ichiro 7th overall in my 12 team 10X10 League. I figured that he was way under-valued considering we count : H,R,TB,AVG,K,SB,HR,RBI,E,PO.
Hell single handedly murderize my opponents in those bold categories.
What do you think?

P.S. My next 4 picks werent too shabby Either: Teixara,Chavez,Vmart,H Matsui

I dont think that was a great pick because you probably could of got him on the turn although I agree he is way undervalued.

I agree with mrider. You probably could have gotten him with your 2nd pick. Who were the 5th and 6th picks or your draft? (Since we all know who the first 4 were already.)

I picked 12th in my draft, similar league as yours, head to head with 10 hitting cats..

I was able to pick up ichiro with my 12th, then jason schmidt with the turn.

5 was Manny, 6 was Soriano. BTW, this was an Auto-pick draft. I spent a while pre-ranking, and I had Suzuki right after The big 4 and Abreu. I could have had tejada, but i was targeting K greene as a sleeper by moving all shortstops to sub 200 ranking (K Greene was 396 in Yahoo) and it worked. In fact, i did that with 2B as well, putting all the 2B behind the SS, hoping to get T. Walker, my other sleeper. This worked like a charm, as I got K greene, Tod Walker, and Ty Wiggington at 16, 17th and 18th rounds. I also picked up Kaz Matsui off waivers :-]

With your categories I would easily have taken Helton after only Pujols and Vlad especially since you could get an Ichiro in the next round.

I seriously doubt Ichiro sticks around til 18th, if you wanted him, that was your only chance to get him. I think I would have preferred Helton as well, but there's nothing wrong with the Ichiro pick.
