1st Live Draft Ever..Did I Do Ok? WHIR

Postby chillyumpop » Sat Feb 23, 2008 4:12 pm

5x5 10 team roto league
c- R Hernandez
1b Justin Morneau
2b I Kinsler
3b D Wright
SS D Jeter
OF C Lee, N Markakis, J Francouer
Util R Braun, R Weeks
Bench W Tavares, R Garko, J Hermida

Sp J Lackey, D Matsuzake, I Snell, A Wainwright, D Lowe
RP F Cordero, T Hoffman, M Capps
Bench J Chamberlain, I Kennedy

Is my team balanced enough to place in top 3 in my roto league. I think my pitching might be a little weak...
Much appreciated

Thanks for the great advice on this forum. Took people's suggestions and did a few mock drafts and went by tier system.

Overall, i like your team. Like you said, the pitching is a bit weak but it has potential. I can see you dropping garko or hermida and picking up another starter if there's a decent one on the wire. But other than, it's looking pretty good.

Nice job of popping that draft cherry you did there. You have a hell of an outfield there and you have two of the top three third baseman in baseball...I know Braun will be an outfielder on opening day, but oh well.Your pitching staff looks all right to me, but I might look to acquire more depth if I were you. Dice-K might not progress and I'm not a big fan of Lowe. Saves look good right now and you have a nice balance in your line-up.

Very nice team. However there is really no point in holding on to wright/braun and Kinsler/Weeks. I think maybe try to trade braun and weeks for a top pitcher and you are set.

I disagree. Braun will be OF qualified early this season, giving you a starting OF of Lee, Markakis and Braun. Try packaging francour and Weeks/Snell/Lowe for a pitching upgrade. Offense is stacked.

Wow, for a first live draft ever that's a sick team.

I would NOT trade Braun for a pitcher. He's going to have another very good year.

I would trade Weeks (sell people's opinion of him being a top player) and get a good pitcher. Aside from that, awesome first time draft :)
