Last Mock till Draft - What are your Thoughts?

Postby baseballyes » Mon Mar 12, 2007 11:06 pm

Hey any help is appreciated!

alright here is my draft

Our Keeper League
is a roto league 12 teams with 6x6 scoring (5x5 + K/9 and OPS)

We keep 3.


I had the 7th pick of this draft

I know the most glaring hole is closers....

C - Lo Duca (R19)
1B-Howard (R1)
2B-Kendrick(R13)
SS-HanRam (R3)
3B-Zimmerman (R5)
OF-CPatterson (R6)
OF - Francouer (R11)
OF - Hermida (R17)
UTIL- PrinceFielder (R7)
UTIL-TravisHafner(R2)

P-Halladay (R4)
P-Chris Young (R8)
P-Brett Myers (R9)
P-Cole Hamels (R10)
P-Ervin Santana (R12)
P-Joel Zumaya (R15)
P-Salomon Torres (R16)

Bench
1. Alex Gordon (R14)
2. Conor Jackson (R21)
3. Scot Shields (R18)
4. Linebrink (R22)
5. Jeff Francis (R20)
6. Daniel Cabrera (R23)

i wanted the middle relievers because i plan to try the multiple relief aces = ace pitcher strategy.

well let me know what you think, where i should improve and what i did well.

let me know if you want my comments on your threads!

thank you very much

Your SP is awesome. The only thing I would improve upon is your OF spot of Hermedia and LoDuca. Besides that I like your team.

Can you help with mine:

did you say this was a mock draft? You're team is lights out aside from not having a closer. I wouldn't have taken Gordon over taking a third outfielder, especially with Zimmerman at third base. You probably could of gotten a Bob Wickman/Todd Jones as well.

Very nice draft. I like the use of your last pick on Daniel Cabrera, low-risk with high upside. (I picked Daniel Cabrera up in Round 20 of mine), he is lights out so far this spring training.

Coach Leo will turn miracles with him, and he's got great "strikeout"ability written all over him.

Linebrink also will be a good pickup.

help with mine?

Your team looks pretty good. Outfield is something that could be improved on. Closers is a position that is often changing, and a few of the teams haven't decided who their closers are yet. Keep an eye on waivers, and on the Closer's thread in Baseball Leftovers. You will probably find a few decent closers.

Good luck, and thanks for rating my team!

Great team. Don't worry about the closers. They come off the waiver wire later (remember puts and papelbon?). And yes, the middle reliever does = ace pitcher. If you could get Zumaya you would be unstoppable. The only thing I would worry about is the OF. You rely on Hermida to break out, and in the event that he doesn't your screwed. You could always package one of your 40 hr studs (probably hafner, cuz hes easiest to move and get something in return) and get an outfield. Nice mock draft. Good luck!

I like the middle relievers approach - if in fact you're going that route, maybe someone like Broxton is available? He and Zumaya are two who might end up getting a shot to close later. I don't, however, think that the rest of your team is strong enough that you could afford to punt saves.

I don't really care for your outfield at all, though. If you believe in Alex Gordon, maybe you would consider trading Zimmerman for some help there - maybe a Matsui type? Or, if this is just a mock, you might considering drafting an outfielder with that pick instead of Zimmerman.
