I think I'm drafting pretty well this year (I always HIR)

Postby Neato Torpedo » Sun Mar 16, 2008 3:06 am

This was my first live draft ever, and it got really messy. But I think I got a pretty good team going on.

12 team Yahoo H2H league
Stat Categories: R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP

The number next to each player is the round he was taken in, I drafted 6th on the way down and 7th on the way up.

C R. Doumit 16
1B C. Pena 7
2B H. Kendrick 12
SS C. Guillen (SS/1B) 5
3B M. Cabrera 1
OF C. Beltran 3
OF Andruw Jones 10
OF B.J. Upton (2B/OF) 2
Util W. Taveras 15
BN Joey Votto 18

SP A. Harang 4
SP C. Young 6
SP T. Lincecum 9
SP Y. Gallardo 11
SP R. Harden 13
SP Z. Greinke 20
SP T. Gorzelanny 18
RP B. Wagner 8
RP R. Soriano 14
RP Pat Neshek 17

Solid team. Don't like Doumit too much, is Bengie Molina avail? Or Kurt Suzuki/John Buck maybe? Infield is solid. OF good, but I'd try to find a way to get upton into the 2b slot and get another solid OF'er, itd improve your offense overall. I like your starters and RP is good. You should be in for a good year ;-D

Yeah, all 3 of those catchers are available. I was intentionally waiting for Soto as a 16th rounds sleeper but he was literally taken 1 pick before me. We were on a 25 second clock at that point so I made a decision pretty quick.

very good hitting staff. try getting one better starting pitcher though. I think DiceK will have a good season. try picking up him.

Not bad, but I think you'll be rueing the fact you reached on Harang (4th) and Chris R. Young (6th). Beltran and Pena are great bargains, but I believe you could've added more value if you had taken a hitter of relative value in the 4th and 6th respectively. You could've wound up with a decent staff and wouldn't have had to reach on Harden (I think it's a moderate reach). Not a bad team, but it needs either another big bat or another ace pitcher to improve.

Correction: I took Guillen in the 4th and Harang in the 5th. And the pitcher rush began the pick after my previous one, and by the time it got back around to me, Harang was the best pitcher on the table. It was either take him or scramble for pitching post-draft in a trade-stingy league.

And as for Young...well I have to have my man-crush on my team. It's either draft him or watch helplessly as another guy dangles him in front of my face and demands Beltran and Cabrera just to spite me.

I like your team, there are some picks that I wasn't crazy about. For whatever reason I'm just not sold on M Cab just yet. He is very good but I don't know if changing teams will suddenly make him a sure fire first rounder. I like your pitching, Harang and Lincecum will be solid K guys for you and Young should bring in a great ERA. I'd try to move Upton to 2nd if you can and find a solid outfielder to play everyday for you. Overall I think solid draft and good start.
