My draft is looking up!

Postby jpgretzky15 » Fri Feb 28, 2003 3:31 am

As the commissioner of a baseball league with friends for the third year in a row (I've won both times), and my draft 9 days away, I'm a pretty happy camper.

Not only am I here to go for a three-peat, but I am especially excited for this year's draft. I drew the #1 pick. Usually, I like a #5 or 6 pick. But I am excited to get A-Rod this year.

Now, the owner of the #2 pick and I have made a pre-draft agreement that he will trade his #1 pick for my #2 pick and my #5 pick (We tell each other who to pick for those selections.) Now, I will have A-Rod and Randy Johnson in the draft, in a 12-team league! Not many drafts start off that well :)

No offense dude, but that league is lame. No wonder you've won twice in a row.

Anyone who would trade you Randy Johnson for a No. 2 pick and a No. 5 pick is either a. retarded, b. very retarded, c. severely retarded or d. all of the above.

Well, I agree that the trade is very nice for jpgretzky15, but I wouldn't say it's absolutely outrageous. There's always a risk involved in trading up, since you'll wind up with more eggs in one basket.

Still, the Big Unit for a second and a fifth is a great deal...

your # 2 pick is like #24 and your #5 pick is like #60 so basically he traded RJ for the #24 and #60 pick.

no way would I have done that.

BTW..instead of getting RJ why don't you get Vlad instead?

that would rock having A-rod and vlad on the same team!

No way trevisc...his next pick would be in teh third round of a 12 team league. Take the #1 hitter and the #1 pitcher.
Zack Greinke...the next Greg Maddux. LOOK IT UP!
For what it's worth.

I'd probably pick Vlad and ARod. You can get a Maddux or a Millwood or a Halladay or a Colon in the third round, or you can get a nice outfielder such as Rondell White or Tsuyoshi Shinjo or Adam Hyzdu in the third round. You get the picture.

My #5 pick is pick 49. The league is very active, and they are all huge baseball fans, but we just all like trading, I guess. But it's not bad for the guy who traded it to me, he told me that he didn't want to draft early starting pitching, but rather build a solid lineup. So to each his own.

I'd take Randy. Then I have all the categories covered, except for really stolen bases, unless a-rod spikes his total up to at least 20 again.
