Do you think I did a good job drafting?

Postby money » Sat Apr 02, 2005 1:27 am

I am in a yahoo 8 team money league. It is head to head with standard scoring. I drafted number 7 overall. The first list is who i picked in each round and the second is my team by position.

1. Johan Santana
2. Bobby Abreu
3. Carl Crawford
4. Jason Schmidt
5. Mark Teixeria
6. Victor Martinez
7. Oliver Perez
8. Roger Clemens
9. Rafael Furcal
10. Melvin Mora
11. Keith Foulke
12. Andrew Jones
13. Jose Reyes
14. Brian Giles
15. Dan Kolb
16. Mike Lowell
17. Kelvim Escobar
18. Eddie Guardado
19. Jaun Uribe
20. Danny Baez
21. Lance Berkman

I would say Andrew Jones was a bad pick for me now that I look at it.

C: Victor Martinez
1B: Mark Teixeria
2B: Jose Reyes (also SS)
SS: Rafael Furcal
3B: Melvin Mora
OF: Bobby Abreu
OF: Carl Crawford
OF: Andrew Jones
Util: Brian Giles

Bench
3B: Mike Lowell
2B, 3B, SS: Jaun Uribe
OF: Lance Berkman

SP: Johan Santana
SP: Jason Schmidt
RP: Keith Foulke
RP: Dan Kolb
P: Oliver Perez
P: Eddie Guardado
P: Danny Baez

bench
SP: Roger Clemens
SP: Kelvim Escobar

I got Berkman in the last round, I am going to throw him on the DL and pick up SP Davis from Mil.

Looks like a damn good tean to me. Never played with only eight teams, so I may not be the best judge.
As far as Andrew Jones, he has changed his stance and is murdering the ball this spring. So maybe it wasnt a waste.

Three stud pitchers-awesome job. You have abreu, crawford, reyes, and even giles runs a bit. Too many stolen bases not enough power. It does no good to win by 10 stolen bases each week, but lose out in rbi or hr. try to turn some speed into power through trades. nice drafting overall. please check mine at

I hope Jones does good for me. The only thing that is killing me is if Reyes will stay healthy or not. I'm very high on this guy so I'm hoping he does good.

That's an outstanding team! If you could pick up a guy that can add some cheap power that would be great...if not then you'll be a bit better when Berkman comes back anyways.

Don't beat youself up about A. Jones in the 12th round. Those are usually the sleeper rounds anyway and he doesn't hurt your team.
Good job. ;-D

A. Jones is a great pick in the 12th round of an eight team league. Don't sweat the pick! He will be a very nice 3rd OF. Especially, since you have Berkman waiting.
