12 Team Mixed H2H Total Points scoring. Scoring Rules are at the bottom. 9th pick over all.

Rnd. Player
1. Miguel Cabrera
2. Jason Bay
3. Travis Hafner (can't believe he fell)
4. Roy Oswalt
5. J. Bonderman
6. J. Lackey
7. Bill Hall (my 1 reach pick really wanted the positional flexibility)
8. N. Swisher
9. A. Rios
10. J. Francoer
11. Chris R. Young (SD)
12. C. Cordero
13. B. Lidge
14. Ian Kinsler

16. Adrian Gonzalez
17. Russel Martin
18. Chuck James
19. Clay Hensley
20. Scott Olsen
21. Troy Tulowitzki
22. Solomon Torres

Scoring Cats Hitters:

1b=5, 2b=10, 3b=15, HR=20, R=5, RBI=5, SB=10, BB=3, Outs=-2, K's=-1, CS=-5

Scoring Cats Pitchers
IP=15, W=30, S=30, K=3, CG=25, ShO=50, L=-15, BS=-15, ER=-10, Hits Allowed=-5, BB Allowed=-3


Draft Strategy,

I traded down from #1, to #9 specifically to get Cabrera, wanted him since day 1 and was thrilled when he dropped. Based on our scoring and since its head to head, I really wanted 3 horses for starting pitchers.

I was going to go, Cabrera, best outfielder, then 2 pitchers. But, when Hafner fell to #33 I couldn't pass on him. So I follwed it with 3 starting pitchers.

Bill Hall was one guy I targeted at the start of the draft, knowing I would likely miss the run on SS's, his flexibility is awesome, same with Nick Swisher, he's a poor mans Berkman.

After the three studs, I just finished with best player available, plugging needs as I went along. Then targeted me sleeper Pitchers late.

Favorite Picks

Adrian Gonzalez in the 18th is phenomanal value, as he could start 1b over Swisher for me.

Troy Tolowitzki in the 21st, NL RoY candidate after being named the starting SS, again excellent value for that round.

As always, leave a link and I'll help out. Let me know what you think, I feel pretty good about it. A little light in the OF, but not that weak.


A little easier to see it this way too...

well you certainly wont run into any trouble in the power department. Its a good overall team with some nice high upside picks at the end, your strong points are your pitching and your power in your lineup.

thanks with the help on mine.....


don't forget that you can always shift Hall to the outfield once he has eligibility there and play the rookie Rocky SS

Yep, that was the thought process on taken the second SS and drafting Hall early. So I can play with my roster.
