What round do you start drafting SP's?

Postby BJSFAN123 » Mon Mar 03, 2008 5:39 pm

I'm in a 12 team league, and I'm thinking of not drafting a SP until round 6

Do you think it's risky to wait this long?

I've got a 10 team league and normally jump in by around round 4. THIS year I've got Santana as one of my 2 keepers (a first for me), so I won't touch a pitcher till 8 or 9 AND no RP's till after round 10 . . .

I always grab SP when the value is right. I usually try to grab the last or second to last guy in his tier. For instance, I grabbed Lackey in the 6th round of my last draft (66th overall & before any of the potential injury reports came out) since he was the last true ace on the board. Johan, Peavy, Beckett, Oswalt, Hamels, Webb, Harang, Kazmir, Bedard, Verlander, Haren & Felix were all taken before I grabbed Lackey. I try to do this all the way down the tier ladder.

Depends on the draft. If I see a guy who I feel shouldn't be there at my pick, then I'll grab him.

6 sound about right. i like to take one about here and then draft 1-3 after that and you'll have good pitching all of a sudden :O. It also depends how much ur league likes pitching

I grab them all through the draft depending on if they are the best option. I have no problem taking a Santana. I enjoy playing against the people who don't draft pitchers till the 6-7-8th rounds it's not the way to win. My only new draft/non redraft I wasn't in a position to get the top top guys so I took mine in starting in the 5th round.

All depends on where I can get good value. There is enough depth that I won't reach for a guy just because I don't have any yet.
