ESPN draft, how'd I do? -WHIR-

Postby JRRNeiklot » Fri Mar 09, 2007 5:07 pm

10 team ESPN league, standard 5x5 Roto. First time I've played anything besides Yahoo. The draft SUCKED. I think maybe 4 of us were actually there, the rest either blew it off or preranked. As a result, I didn't get my usually 5 minutes or so between picks to ponder things. Sometimes it was bang bang bang three picks in a row! Sheesh. Next time I'll better prepared. Anyways, how'd I do?

First thing I wold do is dump Sosa for just about anyone. And I'm not really a big fan of holding on to Clemens for half the season to wait for him to make up his mind. I would try packaging him and a batter and upgrade your infield. Fielder should hav a great season this year but I would uprade at 3B over Huff. He almost is guaranteed to start slow. Also, Griffey imho is a huge risk.

The team definately has some work but watch the wire and make some trades before opening day.

Well, I got Griffey, Sosa, and Clemens as my last 3 picks, so it wasn't like I took a big risk. Blaylock is on the wire, but I figured Huff's multiple position eligibility made him a better choice.

Thanks.

Very Strong OF and strong SP...the left side of ur infiled concerns me a little...I like fielder at 1st, and Weeks at 2nd assuming he stays healthy, but Id try to upgrade etierh SS or 3b....3b would obviousl be easer since its so much deeper...Id try to package one of ur stud OF and either ur 3B or SS for a better 3B or SS

Noone better then huff out there for 3B, or cabrera for SS? sosa isn't a bad backup, but I don't think he'll qualify for anything except DH right?

A Chris Duncan or Luke Scott would be a better bet if available.

A few guys you are betting the upside on; Weeks, Huff, Fielder & Hernandez and some old guys... Some are going to work out but some aren't.

Like your squad,

3B - you say its a 10 team league, there has to be someone better then Huff, sure he has multi position eligibility, he is a good bench player, for a ten team league.

Sosa, - waive him and claim another 3B, keep Huff as your bench guy, for a ten team league, he is gravy, can play 1B, 3B, and OF.

Nice rotation, balance of youth and veterans.

PLEASE HELP ME:

At 3rd, the best options at FA are Lowell, Blalock, Ensberg, and Mora. Sosa qualifies at of. Which should I grab?
