Just drafted...WHIR

Postby mpatt34 » Sat Feb 24, 2007 7:57 pm

Just completed the draft for a 12-team non-keeper H2H 5x5 Yahoo! league.

Here's my current lineup before making any moves or trades, as well as their draft position.

C Michael Barrett (ChC) Round 16/Pick 186
1B Carlos Delgado (NYM) Round 5/Pick 55
2B Josh Barfield (Cle) Round 11/Pick 127
3B Alex Rodriguez (NYY) Round 1/Pick 7
SS Stephen Drew (Ari) Round 12/Pick 138
OF Vernon Wells (Tor) Round 3/Pick 31
OF Alex Rios (Tor) Round 9/Pick 103
OF Michael Cuddyer (Min) Round 14/Pick 162
Util Travis Hafner (Cle - DH) Round 2/Pick 18
BN Todd Helton (Col - 1B) Round 13/Pick 151
BN Brad Hawpe (Col - OF) Round 17/Pick 199
BN Carlos Quentin (Ari - OF) Round 19/Pick 223
BN Frank Thomas (Tor - DH) Round 21/Pick 247

SP Roy Halladay (Tor) Round 4/Pick 42
SP John Lackey (LAA) Round 6/Pick 66
RP J.J. Putz (Sea) Round 7/Pick 79
RP Takashi Saito (LAD) Round 15/Pick 175
P Cole Hamels (Phi) Round 8/Pick 90
P Justin Verlander (Det) Round 10/Pick 114
P John Patterson (Was) Round 18/Pick 210
BN Daniel Cabrera (Bal - SP) Round 20/Pick 234

I made a lot of mistakes drafting people too high because I was worried about the positional depth. My middle infield is pretty awful and looks like my biggest flaw right now. I'm not too set on Cuddyer being in an OF spot.

Any insight would be great. Suggestions for possible trades, sleepers to look out for to replace some of my flaws, etc. Leave your links as well and I'll help you out.

I wouldnt worry to much thats a pretty solid team. Hawpe, Quentin & Cuddyer should be fine as your 3rd OF(Run with the hothand).

Drew & Barfield(Besides u need his SBs) will do fine.

Your offence exhibits good power & BA

And pitching is very good.

Help me?

Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

Pitching looks good!!! (i think Patterson can rebound !)
Balanced offense, not too shabby! i like Rios ! Barrett is a nice pick also. you might wanna pick up another closer if there's one on waivers...Salomon Torres, S.McClung,T.Tankersly might be out there. Or trade Thomas since you have hafner @Util. trade him for a RP or package w/ a position you think is weak and upgrade that position. Good Luck! team is competitive!!!

I would definitely trade Thomas. Also try to upgrade your relief pitching. If Broxton is out there on the WW I would grab him as insurance for Saito(he may be, I grabbed him in the last round of one of my drafts).
