Kaz Matsui Strategy

Postby Dude86 » Thu Feb 19, 2004 5:09 pm

Since Kaz Matsui can't be drafted on Yahoo and we have to wait until he appears on waivers to pick him up I have an interesting theory. If you knew that you had #1 waiver priority and could definetly pick up Kaz when he first appears on waivers would you forgot about drafting a SS during your draft and focus on other positions since you knew Kaz was yours?

That is too risky. I would draft a SS.

i actually dont think thats a bad strategy. I'd still pick up a shortstop, but not until the later rounds

Why is it risky? You're guaranteed to get Kaz Matsui, so you don't draft a SS. Seems reasonable to me. Sure you'll have to use a last round pick on a SS until Kaz plays his 1st game, but big deal.

One drawback about this is that you'll miss out on other players being added because you'll be sent ot the end of the waiver priority list. But Kaz is probably the best player that's going to be available all year anyway.

This is a very good hint for those who draft last in Yahoo drafts.

If you use this strategy...and Kaz gets hurt...or turns out to be a bust....then you are left with a FA scrub to play SS all year....I would draft a SS....If you want to use a similar strategy...then wait until later to draft a solid back up SS and then pick up Reyes..but I would not go with out drafting one.... :-o

I like the Kaz Strategy too, only if you have a high priority. But what about private leagues with no waivers, would it still be worth it? Or just play it safe and get an SS.
