Drafted on Instinct, Who'd I do? 12 Team 5x5

Postby Field » Thu Mar 15, 2007 10:23 pm

I think drafted one of the best overall hitting teams. My starter depth is somewhat lacking (i just missed grabing Harden in the 11th), but Sabathia, Bonerman, and Cain all have the potential to be top 10. Sexson as a 40 hr guy on my bench seems pretty nice. What do you think?

1. (5) Álex Rodríguez 3B
2. (20) Grady Sizemore OF
3. (29) Matt Holliday OF
4. (44) Aramis Ramírez 3B
5. (53) Rafael Furcal SS
6. (68) C.C. Sabathia SP
7. (77) Jeremy Bonderman SP
8. (92) Prince Fielder 1B
9. (101) Matt Cain SP
10. (116) Francisco Cordero RP
11. (125) Jeff Francoeur OF
12. (140) Richie Sexson 1B
13. (149) Howie Kendrick 1B,2B
14. (164) Joe Borowski RP
15. (173) Mike Piazza C
16. (188) Joel Zumaya RP
17. (197) John Patterson SP
18. (212) Jonathan Broxton RP
19. (221) Kelvim Escobar SP
20. (236) Dan Wheeler RP
21. (245) Chris B. Young OF

I don't like your SP at all. It would've been better if you got Harden as you said. Since you're not using Sexson, I'd package him and one of your SP's for an ace

If you get a chance:

What do you mean about SB's? Sizemore and Furcal are good for about 60 if not more. Arod, Holliday, Fielder should nab about 35. So that leaves me right around 100. In a full year Kendrick will get about 15 putting me right in the thick of things, definitely top 5 in the league if not higher.

I like the idea of trading Sexson + an SP for another strong hurler to compliment C.C.

You definitely have 100+ SBs scattered throughout your lineup. You should be fine.

i think kendrick will actually get you more than 15 steals, you aren't dominating but you arent at the back of the pack

that said i like the team but for your pitching

the sexson pick is really confusing to me, i have to believe you could have gotten a bedard or a hill or even like a willis/hamels/myers type there possibly

i think you got some great value, the only pick i see as suspect is sexy and thats because you already had prince

and rather then going back and amending my entire post :-B

i just caught matt cain... with cain, bonderman, and sabathia i think your pitching isn't that bad at all. i think you probably got some great value taking pitchers late

i would still probably have gone pitching instead of sexson but its a team id be proud to own. great job
