$500/Team League. How did I do.

Postby ejay508 » Wed Feb 20, 2008 8:13 pm

12 Team H2H 5x5. I am so excited after this draft. If I didnt know the guys in the draft I would of thought I was drafting with amateurs. What you guys think? I think I have speed, power, decent BA, Runs, RBIS, A ton of K's, Saves etc... No stud SP but all those guys combined will win me weeks almost every week. Now lets hear the bashing as always happens when someone thinks their team is goo.

C- Victor Martinez
1B- Pena (Think he is in for a down year but in round 8 how can you pass)
2B- Upton (4th round couldnt pass)
SS- Rollins
3B- Aramis
OF- Hart
OF- Hawpe
OF- Votto/Butler
Ut- Braun

SP:
Harang
Hill
Lincecum
Chris Young
James Shields
Gorzalanney
Philip Hughes
Jason Scmidt (last round, couldnt pass)

Closers:
Capps
C. Cordero
BJ Ryan (round 20, guess everyone forgot about him)
Boroski

I think you had a great draft, I'm not too high on Pena and don't think most people are but like you said you really can't pass him up in the 8th round.

Love your hitting, some good balance there, if I had to point out any weakness its your 3rd OF spot, Votto might not get a lot of playing time under Dusty and his love for vets. Butler isn't a bad backup though, he is a Royal though so don't expect real big numbers but hes a nice late rd pick.

Your pitching certainly doesn't wow me but you made the right choice of taking starters who strikeout a lot of hitters. I like Shields and Gorz, but I tend to avoid the potential sophomore slump pitchers if they pitch anything like last year you have a good staff.

As for Schmidt and Ryan, BJ Ryan is going to start the year on the DL but I would go ahead and throw him in your DL spot and stick it out. So far from what I hear Schmidt is in the backend rotation but only if he does make the rotation, don't be too surprised if hes injured again.

Nice job, I'd say with the team you drafted it was a good investment ;-D

Like the other post said ....only weakness is the outfield unless Votto plays everyday and is the next Ryan Braun. I picked up BJ Ryan in the 22nd round of mine so they forgot about him in my draft too! Hopefully he can return to form for both of us!

Your offense looks good but I notice a lack of speed. I think you have too many bench players too. Your pitching staff is a bit suspect and if this isa H2H you need to kill them with quantitiy. Bounce Harris and an injued LoDuca for some sleep SPs cuz your gonna need it.
