Good Hitting; No Starting Pitching...

Postby silentjim » Mon Mar 27, 2006 1:30 am

Just finished this draft the other day and realize I have no true ace what-so-ever. Obvioulsy I'm lacking in starting pitching, but I feel ok about everything else. I was taking the "scour the waiver wire approach" to help with pitching. What do you think? I have number two waiver priority, and I think I'm going to wait for everything to unfurl first then see who I can get by dropping Mackowiak once everyone clears waivers.

13 team, 5x5, 7 keeper league and I had the 12th pick.

C I. Rodríguez (Det - C)
1B D. Lee (ChC - 1B)
2B B. Roberts (Bal - 2B)
3B S. Rolen (StL - 3B)
SS M. Tejada (Bal - SS)
OF J. Pierre (ChC - OF)
OF C. Beltrán (NYM - OF)
OF G. Anderson (LAA - OF)
Util J. Encarnación (StL - OF)
BN R. Mackowiak (CWS - 2B,3B,OF)

SP M. Mulder (StL - SP)
SP T. Hudson (Atl - SP)
RP B. Wagner (NYM - RP)
RP J. Nathan (Min - RP)
P A. Benítez (SF - RP)
P C. Capuano (Mil - SP)
P M. Morris (SF - SP)
BN J. Washburn (Sea - SP)
BN J. Weaver (LAA - SP)
BN G. Chacín (Tor - SP)
BN K. Farnsworth (NYY - RP)

I think you can get by with the pitching that you have. Mulder and Hudson are not that bad a 1-2 punch in a 13 team league. I also like Weaver this year, though that's a gamble. Watch the waiver wire, but I don't think any major overhaul is required.

Yeah, I picked Mulder, my first starting pitcher, in round 9 which may have been a little late, but I'm off the impression like a lot of guys, that there is always pitching to be had on the waiver wire at some point.

I have high hopes for Weaver as well. I think Washburn could be a good fit in Seattle as well. Only time will tell though.

I like that team, definately save your waiver priority, Mackowiak is droppable, who are the SP's on WW?

Slim pickings.

I've got Lopez, Arroyo, Lidle, Maroth, etc.

I've kind of got my eye on Eaton, though I don't think anyone will snatch him up, so I'm not sure if I'll pick him up.

Very nice team, I like your pitching though you do lack that one true ace.
