First Draft of the season Roto 12 team WHIR

Postby imnottheonly » Mon Mar 17, 2008 1:56 am

Ok 12 team league 7x7 scoring with the categories as follows:
Offensive:R, H, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG
Pitching:W, SV, H, HR, K, ERA, WHIP

My strategy going into this draft was to take the best player available when they came up. I think I stuck to this plan fairly well in the early rounds but my draft I think got a little shaky towards the back. I went light on saves opting to only take 2 closers and a pair of NL west setup men to round out the back of my pitchers. I also selected 2 positions last SS and C and I am not sure if these should be points of concern for me or not. Let me know what you think of my team balance and what I need to look to improve.

RD. Selection Player
1. (2) Albert Pujols
2. (23) Grady Sizemore
3. (26) Mark Teixeira
4. (47) Robinson Canó
5. (50) Nick Markakis
6. (71) John Lackey
7. (74) Scott Kazmir
8. (95) Roy Oswalt
9. (98) Ryan Zimmerman
10. (119) Huston Street
11. (122) Yovani Gallardo
12. (143) Jeff Francoeur
13. (146) Joe Borowski
14. (167) Jonathan Broxton
15. (170) Nick Swisher
This is where the draft got a little funky for me
16. (191) Geovany Soto
17. (194) Heath Bell
18. (215) Yunel Escobar
19. (218) Evan Longoria
20. (239) Chuck James
21. (242) Justin Upton
22. (263) Matt Lindstrom

So my final roster looks like this:
C-Geovany Soto
1B-Albert Pujols
2B-Robinson Cano
SS-Yunel Escobar (also has 2b and 3b eligibility)
3B-Ryan Zimmerman
OF-Grady Seizmore, Nick Markakis, Jeff Francouer
UTL- Mark Teixeira
BN-Nick Swisher, Evan Longoria, Justin Upton

SP-John Lackey, Scott Kazmir
RP-Huston Street, Joe Borowski
P-Roy Oswalt, Yovani Gollardo, Heath Bell, Johnathon Broxton
BN-Chuck James, Matt Lindstrom

So how do things look I am debating dropping Upton to pick up another pitcher as I think Swisher and Longoria have bigger upsides for this season, I am also debating trying to move Francouer or possibly Texiera to upgrade SS and add another closer but I am unsure. What do you think should I sit as is or try to make some moves advice appreciated and I will help in return.

infield is shaky outside of pujols and tex, i'd argue you took cano early, but i'm only in a 10 teamer
outfield looks ok, depends on nick markakis being good
starting pitchers are decent, and yes agree to get another closer

Took Pujols too early with the injury concerns. 2nd is way too high. I think your pitching is a little iffy with Lackey out for awhile and Kazmir out for a short time. Either could be nagging injuries that throw those guys off a little even after coming back. It looks to me like you just ignored injuries too much. Cano is way too early, sizemore is a great pick at #23
