Just Drafted Big Money League - Suggestions

Postby smith1051 » Fri Mar 14, 2008 12:49 am

This is a 12 team league, H2H w/ standard 5X5 scoring. I had the 10th pick and wanted Cabrera badly - he went 8th and Wright went 9th. Best available was Holliday which I was very happy about and then Howard also fell into my lap at pick 15. Here is how my draft ended up. I think it ended up fairly well - let me know any suggestions or if you have any comments. ;-D

Current lineup:
C Johjima (15.178)
1B Howard (2.15)
2B Figgins (3.34)
3B Lowell (11.130)
SS Tulowizki (6.63)
CI Garko (13.154)
MI Uggla (9.106)
OF Markakis (5.58)
OF Holliday (1.10)
OF Ankiel (18.207)
OF Jay Bruce (21.250)
UTIL Wiggington (24.279)
BN Longoria (20.231)
BN Rasmus (23.274)
BN Rajai Davis (25.298)
BN Carlos Gomez (26.303)

SP Harang (7.82)
SP Matsuzaka (8.87)
SP Gallardo (10.111)
SP Hill (12.135)
RP Papelbon (4.39)
RP Chamberlain (14.159)
RP Lyon (16.183)
P Snell (17.202)
P Sherrill (19.226)
P Wood (22.255)

I think you need an Outfielder. Dusty Baker is going to give you grief for a while especially if he puts Patterson on the opening day roster. He loves vets and might hurt Bruce's value for the time being. I'd consider letting go of Gomez because he has a lot of plate mechanics to work on and I wouldn't be surprised if he were sent to the minors to work on it eventually. Add in the fact that you might be going with another guy in Ankiel whom might bat his weight the OF needs another guy.

You have a looot of prospects/sleepers there. It'll be really nice if even half of them pan out.

That is pretty much what I'm hoping for. I'd like Bruce and Rasmus to lock down the starting job out of ST because they could be a great Sell High candidate.
