First draft h2h WHIR

Postby Montana168 » Wed Feb 27, 2008 2:30 pm

this is my first draft that i have done this year. i'm not too happy with it, a lot of my players are young and i had to reach a little with some players, particularly hunter pence. nearly 6 or 7 of the 12 teams for the draft didn't show up so the autopick gave them BPA which resulted in OF going too early and pence was the best option in the 4th round. well tell me what you think...12 team yahoo h2h 5x5. i had the 8th pick.

C Brian McCann
1B Ryan Howard
2B Placido Polanco
3B Miguel Cabrera
SS Derek Jeter
OF Hunter Pence
OF Corey Hart
OF Jeff Franceour
UTIL Josh Hamilton
BN Yunel Escobar
BN Billy Butler
BN Michael Bourn

SP Scott Kazmir
SP Tim Lincecum
RP Huston Street
RP Manny Corpas
P Brian Wilson (SF)
P Matt Cain
P Chien-Ming Wang
BN Phil Hughes
BN Matt Garza

i have virtually no SB threats besides jeter, hart, and pence. one thing i like though is balance with the pitchers. kaz, linc, and hughes are going to put up high SO numbers, and wang, hughes will give me high W's. tell me what you think. the players are young and have potential but i'm not sure i like it.

like always, post a link and i'll help you out.

i like the balance of you lineup, though polanco and jeter dont give you much in the dept you need, which is both power and speed. miggy and howard give you power, and if francour and hamilton can too, you shouldnt be horrible there.
i would like to see more of an ace for your pitchers, though i think kazmir is right there, barring missing extended time. two of your rps may not get many saves chances either.

i wouldnt count on hughes getting you such high wins and strike outs as your saying... remember his innings WILL be limited to about 140-150 innings. He wont go over that and will be limited this season

Thats a pretty solid team, how did you get Ryan Howard and MCabb? in a 12 teamer having the 8th pick?

that was my biggest steal of the draft and thats what everyone said while we were drafting. the last guy who had the 12 pick, i guess didn't really know what he was doing because he drafted jake peavy at 12 and vlad guerrero at 13 then the guys before me picked guys like soriano and crawford.

I really don't see any holes. I think this team is very solid with studs on down to future studs. ;-D

Howard and MCab should carry your offense, but I wouldn't be so comfortable relying on so many Young arms. They could be ok, or they could blow up their arm, and I think you are overrating Phil Hughes a little.

I really like this team. A bit light on steals, but otherwise an A team.
