Rate my draft

Postby Grizzlies » Wed Mar 21, 2007 11:55 pm

My real draft is tomorrow, so I just did a mock draft to prepare.

How did I do? I had the second pick out of 12. Personally I think my lack of preparation showed.

C- M. Barrett
1B - J. Morneau
2B - I. Kinsler, M. DeRosa (2B,3B,OF)
SS - J. Reyes
3B - F. Sanchez, M. Mora
OF - J. Dye, T. Hunter, M. Ordonez, A. Kearns
SP - C. Carpenter, R. Harden, Jered Weaver, C-M Wang, K. Escobar, D. Lowe
RP - J. Nathan, M. Gonzalez, A. Otsuka

Where were my biggest blunders? I took Reyes with the 2nd pick and Carpenter with the 23rd.

I think you want an honest answer so don't take this the wrong way. I think its a terrible team. Now it was your first draft so its understandable you just need to learn from your mistakes. The biggest problem is I can't understand how you have a weak outfield weak catcher weak closers and weak third base. Otsuka is a great third closer since I don't see Gagne lasting too long but Gonzalez isn't starting the season as a closer and you will start off slow in that regard. Go for Valverde for his upside or Fuentes because he is ridiculously underrated in my opinion. Todd Jones falls but bottom line hes the closer and Leyland is old school so Jones needs to fall off the face of the earth which is conceivable but still needs to happen. At third go for guys like Gordon or Teahen if you can't get a big bopper. Outfield go for Rios or Markakis along with your studs. I hope you take this as constructive because I know my first couple drafts this year were questionable and the players I'm throwing out there are players I like.

your C through SS positions are fine. 3B is very weak. I also do not like that outfield. Dye is good but I'd like him more as a 2nd OF/Hunter as a 3rd.

too much risk in your rotation(harden we know, weaver already on DL, wang/lowe not strike out pitchers).

I don't have a problem with that RP strategy, but with the issues with the OF, 3B, SP, it's not gonna work as is.
