Baseball Newbie Question: Draft Upcoming

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby angels7777 » Sat Feb 24, 2007 5:05 pm

Is there a mock auction in the Cafe? Also, my league counts hits as an additional category. Would this make a guy like Jeter more valuable since he is a free swinger?

I would have picks 4, 13, and 20 in this draft....

+1 (000,000!!) to this. If it's 8 teams, having Santana would be EXTREMELY handy.

so who are the consensus top 4 in an 8 team H2H league?

#1 is Pujols
#2 someone told me the guy prefers Soriano
#3
#4

Who are MY best 3 options in an 8 teamer behind Pujols?

It sounds like my best bet is Santana, followed by A-Rod... any thoughts? I've heard Reyes mentioned but I think he is getting a lo of hype more than anything... what sucks is that my draft is online so I have to be pretty prepared..

Draft the best player avalible for the first 4 rounds, and then start looking for positions you need. Unless you get good value on a top 3 Cather, wait a while and pick up a lower end guy. Don't take more than 1 pitcher in the first 7 rounds and then look to stock up.

Are there a set rankings here at the cafe based purely on best players available regardless of position?

That site has good free rankings that gives you all the hitters and pitchers so it's not separted by each position. The Cafe mock drafts that you can get by clicking Rankings on the side are helpful as well but they are people trying to build teams so it's not just pure rankings.
