Yahoo steals and player I target after round 10

Postby chadlincoln » Mon Mar 26, 2007 10:22 am

This is a list of guys that as I draft I say I wouldn't mind having that guy. This isn't a list that a lot of you will be surprised by. These are guys who I target every draft for my backups and guys I look to grab because they are listed lower than I think they should be on Yahoo.

C- Ianetta, Varitek, Barrett- too low
1B- Shealy, Gonzalez, Duncan, Youkilis, Conor Jackson, Mike Jacobs, Dan Johnson, Laroche, Cuddyer
2B- Kinsler, Kelly Johnson (OF now in Yahoo, will gain 2B eligibility), Burke
3B- Tracy, Gordon, Teahen, Edwin E
SS- Drew, Peralta, Tulowitsky
OF- Francoeur, Cuddyer, Chris B. Young, Duncan, Youkilis, Bonds, Roberts, Gomes, Rios- too low,
SP- Sanchez, Olsen, AJ Burnett- too low, Harden, Patterson, Kazmir- too low, Chuck James, Adam Wainright, Anthony Reyes, Garza- too low
Closers- Saito- way too low, Lidge, Torres- way too low
Middle relievers- Juan Rincon- way too low,
7/26 - Cafe goes down:

Those guys can definately be counted on to fall back on and maximize the value of your team.

Franceour, Rios will likely go 1st out of those listed above. Chris Young is often going undrafted ( I pick him up consistently with my last pick), as is Mark Teahen.

Saito is obscenely low. I can understand someone saying that he's not as good as last year would indicate, that we shouldn't expect that performance again. But if he's even half as good as last year, he's a middle-of-the road closer at worst. He doesn't belong anywhere near the bottom feeders that Yahoo has him listed with. Even with Broxton lurking behind him.

Saito does not throw hard. Chances are the league will adjust to him this year (see Mr Zero, Otsuka) plus his age and injury he seems to be battling, I am predicting that he is one of the first closers to falter.

i could see some similar adjustment problems and with broxton breathing down his neck i would be a little nervous.

i dont think saloman torres is going too low. i dont think he will hold the job all season.

i've seen frank thomas go pretty late. always an injury risk, but he had 39 homers last year.

have you seen saito's pitches? he struck out 107 in 78 innings with a 2 ERA and sub 1 WHIP! he has a nice fastball and an awesome slider with bite. obviously, there will be a dip in performance vs last yr stats, but i don't see him as one of the first closers to falter, not even close. he's as solid as they come, and i think broxton further away from being ready to take over than people think. there are bunch of guys i would put ahead of saito in terms of faltering, such as borowski and torres. i place saito ahead of guys like lidge, both cordero's, jenks, and even hoffman. i put him at the bottom at the papelbon/street tier.
