Another rate my team post (5th round)

Postby drunkenmonkey » Fri Jan 23, 2004 8:27 am

12 team head-to-head points league -- keeper.
2 pts for single
3 for double
4 for triple
5 for hr
2 for bb
3 for sb

3 for IP
-2 for ER
2 for win
9 for save
1 for SO

Sixth pick in the draft. How'd I do? My thoughts are in ().

1. Vlad (if there's such a thing as a steal in the first, Vlad at 6th is it)
2. Delgado (about where he belongs)
3. Berkman (reached, but I liked his age and OPS)
4. Hudson (couldn't pass up in the 4th)
5. Furcal (SS is drying up quick, not a steal, but not bad)

Any ideas on where I go next. Pitching is still deep. All but a couple of teams are focusing on offense. All the star middle infielders you would expect to be gone are. OF is starting to get a bit thin. Only one catcher (Posada) taken, but ten more picks before mine in the 6th so that could change. Gagne, Wagner, Smoltz, Rivera, Foulke, Dotel all gone at RP.

Thanks for the feedback.

If you get 9 for a save, compared to 2 for a win, pick a solid reliever before another starter, IMO. But if Pudge is still available when it comes back to you, you might want to take him.

Remember though, that an inning pitched is worth 3. That devalues closers somewhat even though they get nine for a save.

Hello, McFly?

I DID take Vlad with the sixth pick in the first round. We have now finished five rounds. The people listed are my first five picks, one for each round.

Hope that cleared things up a bit.
