Prospect Draft

Postby NY Yankees Fan 2004 » Sun Feb 26, 2006 3:50 pm

THis is gonna be my first prospect draft! It will be 3 rounds and I have the #7, 14, and 27 picks..

10 team 5X5 roto league with 10 keepers. My prospects do not count as keepers and I get them for atleast 2 years without having to use them as 1 of my Keepers. If I do not activate them this year than Its 3 years before I make that decision

The Prospects that I got last year:

Jose Capellan-SP-MIL
Mark Teahan-3B-KC
J.J. Hardy-SS-MIL

The following prospects were taken last year

1. Ian Stewart-3B-Col
2. Hanley Ramirez-OF-Fla
3. Joel Guzman-SS-LAD
4. Matt Cain-SP-SF
5. Delmon Young-OF-TB
6. Prince Fielder-1B-Mil
7. Jason Kubel-OF-Min
8. Andy Marte-3B-ATL
9. Lastings Milledge-OF-NYM

Everyone else is left
Who should I be looking to take? I would like to be able to grab one potential future stud pitcher

You probably should of came and asked for advice last year, those aren't the best prospect picks. :*)

Actually how did you get those 3 prospects if this is your first prospect draft? Did you just take them in a regular draft and since they are young consider them prospects? :-?

Anyways what are the guidelines for prospects? No MLB inning or AB's, are Liriano and Verlander still considered prospects?

I took over this team in November. This is what I ended up with. Prospect are players with less than 150ABs and less than 50IP

Liriano and Verlander are both considered prospects

Those are ugly prospects my friend. ;-7

If those 9 are the ONLY ones that are taken I would grab Hermida in a second. I mean RIGHT now, don't look back:).

I assume Felix had more then 50 IP (too lazy to check).

If hermida is unavailable Liriano might be a good pick as well. It all depends on your team and what you need more. Wood might be good if you have a great starting rotation already, if not Liriano is the way to go.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Ah well since your using rookie standards for AB's and IP, that leaves quite a few left. Since you have the 7th and 14th pick, you should be able to grab 1 potential top end pitcher and possibly another with upside that isn't elite yet. The names to look for would be:

- Liriano
- Verlander
- Billingsley
- Lester - not really in the top 3 class yet, but could be. could snag him with the 14th pick

There is a good chance one of them will be left for the 7th pick in the draft.

Hanley Ramirez went second? :-?

Grab Liriano IF hermida is gone, then with your 14th I'd go Wood if hes there. If not then Gordon and then Butler.
