First round minors pick... I'm up

Postby balmlb119 » Tue Apr 03, 2007 5:41 pm

Which OF?

Thought I'd go ahead and give my majors roster so everyone can see who I have and where I need help.

12 team 7x7... add H, OPS; Holds, K/9

c - victor martinez, mike piazza
1b - mark teixeira
2b - brian roberts, dan uggla
3b - miguel cabrera
ss - hanley ramirez
of - andruw jones, jermaine dye, josh willingham, corey hart, dave roberts
sp - cole hamels, c.c. sabathia, jason jennings, boof bonser, dave bush, rich hill, adam loewen
rp - bob wickman, jorge julio, mike gonzalez, justin speier, akinori otsuka

So... my guess is that OF is my weakness (or maybe SP).

The draft so far...

1 - Philip Hughes, NYY
2 - Andrew Miller, DET
3 - Homer Bailey, CIN
4 - Yovani Gallardo, MIL
5 - Justin Upton, ARZ

Top OF available...

Cameron Maybin, Tigers
Billy Butler, Royals
Andrew McCutchen, Pirates
Jay Bruce, Reds
Jose Tabata, Yankees
Hunter Pence, Astros
Fernando Martinez, Mets
Ryan Sweeney, White Sox

Top SP available...

Nick Adenhart, Angels
Adam Miller, Indians
Tim Lincecum, Giants
Luke Hochevar, Royals
Scott Elbert, Dodgers
Eric Hurley, Rangers

Link to all available...

CMaybin(If u can wait) Im surprised hes still around.

BButler is your guy if u want to reap starting later this year.

As for SPs Tim Lincecum is nice but theres talk he'll end up a closer

BWood also is there but u r set at 3B(which he'll end up)
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

I picked up Papelbon in 2005 when there were rumors of him closing, so don't pass Lincecum just cause of that (at the same, though, I'm not saying to get him).


You won't be able to fill weaknesses with prospects. It doesn't really work. Draft best available, even if it's a SS. You can always trade that player away for a proven OF if you have to.

Maybin. Huge upside, at your weakest position.

I myself am a big supporter of Butler, but he may end up being only a DH, and unless you just aren't listing UTL he prolly wouldn't be the smartest way to go.

W/ Utl I take Butler and his Hafner upside
W/O Utl I take Wood who looks to be Glaus and then some

I'd take Butler. He has just about as high an upside at the plate thatn anyone left and he is by far the closest!
