First ever draft...please rate and help...WHIR

Postby Oliver1212 » Wed Mar 21, 2007 2:03 pm

Recently drafted this team in a 10 team 5X5 H2H league, 20 innings min. I have never participated in a league like this before so I was a little uncertain regarding player selection strategy. Also, the commissioner decided to increase min. innings from 12 to 20 after the draft.

C -Russell Martin
1B - Adam LaRoche
2B - Ian Kinsler
3B - Garrett Atkins
SS - José Reyes
OF - Matt Holliday
OF - Raúl Ibañez
OF - Álex Ríos
Util - Travis Hafner
BN - J.D. Drew
BN - Howie Kendrick
BN - Rocco Baldelli
BN - Alex Gordon
SP - Ben Sheets
SP - Matt Cain
RP - Francisco Rodríguez
RP - Joe Nathan
P - B.J. Ryan
P - Huston Street
P - Chad Cordero
BN - A.J. Burnett
BN - Josh Johnson

Obviously I have a surplus of CL (I couldn't pass up Nathan in the 7th)...should I hold on to them until someone may become desperate later in the season or try and make a move earlier. Gordon should probably be drooped...any suggestions on what I need. Also, will Hafner become 1B eligible? Any trade ideas?

All suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Wow... Awesome CP's... you may want to move one for a stud SP, Sheets and Burnett are huge injury risks, and Johnson is injured now (not sure how long, at least until mid-May I believe). Matt Cain is being hailed as the next best thing, but struggled at times last year. You would want to trade for someone who is consistent, that is, take someone you are sure you can count on down the stretch.

Good luck!

If you get a chance...

Definitely try to move a closer for SP. A better bat at 1B/2B might help as well.
