Need help with minor league draft

Postby Armadillo Fury » Tue Apr 11, 2006 2:45 pm

It's an 18 team 6x6 (R HR RBI SB TB OBP W SV K HLD ERA WHIP) roto dynasty league and this is my first ever minor league draft. I have the last pick of the 1st round and the first pick of the 2nd round (I drafted 1st in the regular draft). I'm considering these 2 guys: Billy Butler and Chris Young. Is there anyone else I should be looking at?

(I was also thinking about Marcus Sanders because of his SB potential but this would be too early for him, right?)

The guys taken so far:

Delmon Young
BJ Upton
Brandon Wood
Justin Upton
Andy Marte
Jon Lester
Lastings Milledge
Stephen Drew
Chad Billingsley
Howie Kendrick
Ian Stewart
Carlos Quentin
Daric Barton
Jarrod Saltamachia
Chad Orvella
Alex Gordon

My team:

C R. Barajas
1B A. Pujols
2B C. Biggio
3B M. Lowell
SS J. Uribe
OF L. Berkman
OF G. Sizemore
OF M. Alou
Util J. Giambi
BN N. Markakis
DL M. Cameron

SP B. Webb
RP J. Nathan
P J. Valverde
P M. González
P D. Weathers
P F. Rodney
P S. Eyre
P F. Cabrera
P D. Marte
P J. Zumaya
P J. Capellán
P J. Lackey
BN B. Penny
BN C. Young
BN D. Cabrera
DL R. Wolf

Butler and Guzman would be my choices here ... LaRoche, Young, and Pelfrey are all defendable picks also.

Thanks for the help guys. I went with Butler and Young considering that Young has the potential to be a true 6 cat player in my league (we count TB's and obp instead of BA).

Anyways, I have my next 2 picks coming up. How would you rate these guys I'm considering?

Adam Miller (SP- Cle)
Marcus Sanders (SS/2B- SF)
Elvis Andrus (SS- Atl)
Andrew McCutchen (OF- Pit)

Miller and Sanders. Like Andrus and McCutchen, but I would think/hope you could get 1 of them later. Sanders has few obstacles to the MI in SF.
