7th Round and counting, hows it look?

Postby beowulf » Fri Jan 16, 2004 11:13 am

So far in my 15 (acckkkk) team Yahoo keeper league (with CI anf MI) we have completed 6 rounds of the draft, how do I look so far?

1st pick ... Prior
2nd Oswalt
3rd Billy Wagner
4th Jim Edmonds
5th Phil Nevin
6th Jose Reyes
7th Aramis Ramirez

Looking at an outfielder/ reliver/ MI next few rounds
Its "Evan" Longoria... NOT "Eva"

not too bad I guess..but injuries may be a concern with
Edmonds and Nevin...

Nice pitching staff so far though.

Your draft so far...

Postby Spokes » Fri Jan 16, 2004 11:24 am

Well, your pitching is looking awesome, especially in a deep, 15-team league. I love Billy Wagner this year closing for the Phils. But, if you load up on pitching like you've done, your hitting is going to be a little less than great. And you have some major injury worries with Edmonds and Nevin. If they stay healthy, they are top 40 hitters. If they get hurt, you are screwed. I like Reyes. As the Mets' #2 hole guy this year, he'll be running a lot. Ramirez is good. I just can't get a feel for him yet. He was great in '01, got hurt and was horrible in '02 and then sort of rebounded in '03. But, hitting in a Cub lineup with Sosa, D. Lee and Alou, he SHOULD put up some nice numbers. But definately, with your next pick, go get a hitter, preferably an outfielder.
Good luck!

I know what you mean re: the injuries go but I faily confident with Nevin having a good season and well, with Edmonds he is an awesome player who just plays the game hard... yeah he comes with risk but hes worth the chance

All this injury talk an no one mentioned Oswalt in the 2nd? 8-o

Anway, I'd go after some hitting for the next couple of rounds unless a stud pitcher falls way too far. ;-)

if I let injury risk rule my picks then Id have no team at all. Every player has risk of injury. If they come of surgury like Edmonds and Oswalt and Nevin did they are just as strong a risk as a kid who wasnt hurt last year.

Show me 3 tougher players than those three.

I think Nevin will be good this year. Edmonds always seems to put up numbers and battle injuries every year. I didn't mention the two of them. ;-)

I just think that Oswalt in the 2nd round is early. Just a personal opinion. ;-)

Considering this is 15 teams and I was hoping for schilling or pedro or scmidt or wood to make it bake it back to me Oswalt was the best available pitcher at least in my eyes.
