10 Yahoo draft later.....

Postby BigLebowski » Wed Feb 22, 2006 4:04 pm

...and this is what I know...or think I know.

Players that are falling lower than I think they should. Granted it may be because Yahoo has them ranked low in some instances, but out of 10 drafts these are the sleeper and over-rated players that I have found.

Going later than I would expect=Sleeping to a certain extent.

Barry Bonds- I've got in 9 of the 10 drafts
Brad Wilkerson-10 of 10
Doug Davis 10-10
Randy Johnson 6-10
Mark Prior
Todd Helton 8-10
Jason Giami
Jim Thome
Shea Hillenbrand
Mike Jacobs
Dan Johnson
Nick Swisher
Ben Sheets 7-10
Jeremy Hermida 8-10
Carlos Lee
Chipper Jones
Melvin Mora
Troy Glaus
Brian Fuentes 10-10
Armando Benitez 9-10
Jose Valverde 10-10
Vernon Wells
Preston Wilson 9-10
Rickie Weeks
JD Drew
Brian McCann
AJ Pierzynski
Rod Barajas--not getting drafted at all
Michael Barrett
Kelvim Escobar 9-10
Jeff Weaver
Randy Winn
Travis Hafner 7-10

Players going too soon

Grady Sizemore
Roy Oswalt
Matt Holliday- I've drafted him in 2-10
Derek Lee
Alfonso Soriano
Pedro Martinez...I love him, but I can't take him in the 2nd this year
Rafael Furcal
Brad Lidge
Mariano Rivera
K-Rod
Chad Tracy
Scott Rolen
Jeff Francoeur
Tom Gordon
Carlos Delgado 1-10
Chad Cordero
Victor Martinez
Bobby Jenks

Just another reference point.

Thanks BigL. I've noticed alot of the same things through my Yahoo drafts. Definately something to keep in mind if you're doing one of your main leagues with people who don't frequent the Cafe. ;-D

I couldn't agree more about Barajas. I've drafted three teams so far, and have taken him with my final pick in all three. I'd much rather have him that late than spend a 12-15th rounder on someone who will most likely put up only slightly better numbers, if better at all.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Why do you think Oswalt is going to soon?

They guy has won 19 or more games 3 out of the last 4 years - 19, 10, 20, 20

If you draft on past winning seasons, you're not gonna win many leagues. That is a poor indicator. While I have had him on my rosters 2 of the last 3 years in my money league, and I love the guy, he is going too high for my taste.

I've seen him go in the 3rd and early 4th in most every draft. I wouldn't take him that early, when the only other pitchers taken are Johan, Pedro, and Peavy. There are too many options available at that point to take him there.

Randy Winn



Agree with almost all of them, except this one. Last year, a year significantly above his career levels, he finished the year ranked 92. He's being drafted with an ADP of 103, when in prior years his ranking was in the 110-130 range. I don't think 103 is sleeper territory for him.

I think Hafner is going too late. I mean hes around in the 4th but could put up 1-2 round numbers if he plays a whole season.
