***2008 DRAFT RESULTS*** Please Rate

Postby TheGhost76777 » Mon Feb 25, 2008 1:04 am

standard 5 x 5, start 9 pitchers, 1 C-1B-2B-3B-SS-CI-MI-Util, 5 OF, 5 Bench spots.

Drafted 5th overall in 12 team AL/NL League.

1 - David Wright, 3B, NYM - Had him at #2 on my board, was happy he fell to me.
2 - Grady Sizemre, OF, CLE - Was a no brainer to me, helps you in each cat.
3 - Victor Martinez, C, CLE - 4th year in a row I drafted him, like to get C out of the way.
4 - Travis Hafner, 1B, CLE - Might have reached...not sure :-?
5 - Cole Hamels, SP, PHI - Again, might have reached but I wanted to get my staff ace.
6 - Justin Verlander, SP, DET - Very happy with this pick, I see him getting 18-20 wins.
7 - Michael Young, SS, TEX - Might of reached, but love the consistency.
8 - Rickie Weeks, 2B, MIL - Too early? I am hoping for that breakout year :-o
9 - Matt Cain, SP, SF - King Felix had just got taken, and I wanted a good #3. Love his K's.
10 - Johnny Damon, OF, NYY - Not sure about the PT, but if he leads off he will score lots of runs.
11 - Jason Bay, OF, PIT - I was going to wait on OF, but couldn't pass him up in the 11th round.
12 - Troy Percival, CL, TB - Not very happy with this pick, but closers were going FAST.
13 - Kevin Gregg, CL, FLA - Again, not thrilled with this, but closers went like hot cakes.
14 - Fransisco Liriano, SP, MIN - Seems to me like a risk worth taking in round 14.
15 - Bob Howry, CL, CHC - Nobody on the board excited me, so I went with a 3rd closer.
16 - George Sherrill, CL, BAL - After looking at my closers, I want some insurance.
17 - Kelly Johnson, 2B, ATL - Surprised he lasted this long, and it was a no brainier for me in rnd 17.
18 - Nate McLouth, OF, PIT - Like his HR/SB totals from last year in limited ABs.
19 - Scott Rolen, 3B, TOR - Needed a CI. Hoping he stays healthy to drive in Big Hurt & Wells :-o
20 - Lastings Milledge, OF, WAS - Seemed like a risk needed to take this late.
21 - Adam Jones, OF, BAL - Unsure about this pick, might be a year to soon :-?
22 - Justin Upton, OF, ARZ - Hey one of these young kids has to live up to the hype right?
23 - Matt Garza, SP, TB - Love the K/IP totals, and think he should reach double digit win totals in TB.
24 - Cameron Maybin, OF, FLA - I wanted some SB insurance, here is hoping he gets lots of PT.
25 - Tony Pena, RP, ARZ - Praying he wins the closer job in Arizona.
26 - Brian Fuentes, RP, COL - Between the chance of Corpas struggling & possible trades, I a chance.
27 - Mark Teahen, OF, KC - Was between him and several relievers...maybe he has his breakout year this season? :-?

you did seem to reach for some picks, but i really liked some others that seemed to fall to you. overall looks very solid. but your rp looks very bad, i dont like it at all. pena could be ok, but you have 0 rp that are a lock for 30 saves, heck even 20 might high. good thing you have a lot of them.
Reyes and guerrero, the two most blessed players in the league, not to mention the most fun to watch

thanks, i did want better RP, but they went way too fast. Faster than any draft I've even been apart of. Soriano went in the late 8th.
