Mock Draft Feedback

Postby SkipperStyle » Sun Feb 24, 2008 2:56 am

I tend to subscribe to the ideology that relief pitching is something you hold off on, since 50 percent of all saves in baseball usually come from undrafted players. On the other hand, I ended up with a pretty pathetic bullpen. Here is my team:

C Victor Martinez
1b Paul Konerko
2b Ian Kinsler
3b Alex Gordon
SS Jose Reyes
OF Grady Sizemore
OF Adam Dunn
OF Delmon Young
Util Jeremy Hermida
BN JD Drew
BN Evan Longoria

S CC Sabathia
S Scott Kazmir
S Matt Cain
S Felix Hernandez
S Dustin McGowan
R BJ Ryan
R CJ Wilson
R Brian Wilson
R Kevin Gregg

I went with more relievers of lower quality rather than two really good ones. The way I see it, they are only going to be pitching 50-90 innings anyway, so sacrificing their slightly higher eras and whips isnt a huge problem, because having a solid starting rotation is going to make up for it. At the same time, you have four closers, so you should still get at least a respectable amount of saves.

I am pretty happy with the position players I drafted. They are pretty balanced with a mix of speed and power. However, I immediately reckonized that the team BA will be pretty poor, thanks in no small part to what I assume will be like a 250 average from Adam Dunn. Nevertheless, I am pretty pleased with addressing the weaker positions like C and OF with some solid performers. Grady and Young both are projected to be 30/20 and 20/20 respectively.

Anyway, it was a mock draft, so I am still very interested in peoples' input, especially considering my real draft with my buddies is next week.
