first draft of the year, how's my team?

Postby blu_and_white » Mon Feb 25, 2008 12:22 pm

C - Towles (18th)
1b - Lee (5th)
2b - Weeks (11th)
ss - furcal (8th)
3b - ARam (4th)
of - Holliday (1st)
of - Braun (2nd)--when he qualifies
of - Berkman (3rd)
util - taveras (14th)
BN - Hermida (15th)
BN - Hamilton (16th)
BN - Stephen Drew (21st)

SP1 - Verlander (6th)
SP2 - Kazmir (7th)
SP3 - Vazquez (10th)
SP4 - Cain (12th)
SP5 - Pedro (13th)
RP1 - Jenks (9th)
RP2 - Sherrill (20th)
BN - Harden (17th)
BN - Schmidt (18th)

What do you guys think? My first thoughts:

1 - Wish I didn't take Jenks in the 9th round. Liriano went the pick after and I wanted him for the 10th, but I could have easily picked him in the 9th and gotten a similar closer in the 10th.
2 - Risky staff after Cain. My thinking was, if someone goes on the DL pick up a RP, and first guy projected to miss significant time... cut.
3 - After my first 5 rounds (Holliday, Braun, Berkman, Aramis, Lee) I figured I was good to go on offense other than steals. I passed Matsui and other similar players around the 10th round to get Jenks, Vazquez, Cain. Good call or no?

This is just a public Yahoo! league, roto 5x5. Obviously I want to win but it's not one of my more important leagues. Thoughts on the draft?

i think lee went too early, and your pitching is a little risky, but that is ok, you can always pick up a guy or two if harden gets hurt or what not, i thnk you reached on a lot of picks like furcal. I personally do not like this team that much, but it isnt the worst, it could be competitive, but i would say 5 or 6th best team in a league, i'd look to trade for some more hitting if i was you

some help as well
