Not enough power? Draft strategy off?

Postby Chad85 » Tue Mar 18, 2008 5:19 pm

I went into the draft with Reyes, D. Wright, Miguel Cabrera and Carl Crawford as keepers.

I wanted power but in an effort to fill my pitching staff may not have met that need.

(R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, BB, K, SB - IN, W, L, CG, SO, SV, ERA, K, WHiP)

I ended up with (round following pick, first 4 "rounds" were keepers):

C: Posada (10)
1B: Hafner (5)
2B: Pedroia (16)/Weeks (17)
SS: Reyes (1)
3B: Wright (2)
OF: Crawford (4)
OF: Dye (13)
OF: A. Jones (15)
UT: M. Cabrera (3)

BN: Jose Guillen (20), B. Butler (21)

Pitchers:

SP: Hamels (6)
SP: Haren (8)
RP: F. Rodriguez (7)
RP: Corpas (14)
P: Cris Young (9)
P: J. Vazquez (11)
P: Shields (12)

BN: Bucholtz (18), Lidge (19), Gorzelanny (22)

Since I had 4 offensive guys to start and there aren't many tier 1-2-3 pitchers, I tried to load up early on pitching while getting a decent 1Bman with power in what really was round 1. I thought since OF was easier to fill than other areas throughout the year, I could afford to wait.

I felt good throughout the draft, then after it was over wasn't really all that thrilled with it. Maybe I should have spent more time on offense to start, but most of the big power guys were keepers for others.

Thoughts appreciated...

How many teams in your league?

I think you're fine power-wise, with pronk, wright, cabrera, andruw, dye. I think you have a nicely balanced team, good speed, good pitching staff thatll get you plenty of strikeouts.

10 teams.

I'm hoping I get Dye and Jones from 2006 and not the 2007 versions (though not horrible).

Everyone hopes for the 2006 versions of Dye and Jones. :(

The team looks decent enough, it has enough power as it is. Balanced and effective.
