12-team H2H 5X5 LEAVE UR LINK

Postby Nighttrain » Fri Mar 21, 2008 2:10 pm

Well here is that team that I drafted last night. This league is very competitive and Starting pitching went real fast after I took Harang.

C- Soto (16th round: thought it was good value)
1B- Ortiz (2nd round: Everything is going to plan)
2B- Cano (4th round: Dunn was taken, almost went Tulowitski but figured Cano was a safer pick and think he could bat 3rd this year)
SS- O-Cab (19th round: Had no choice, I think decent value and move to CHW will help)
3B- M-Cab (1st round)
OF- Granderson (3rd: he fell to me an I couldn’t take Dunn over him, plan goes away)
OF- Hawpe (7th: had to have him think he can hit 35hr)
OF- C. Young (8th: huge steal IMO and with Cano, Mcab, and Papi I felt I could tolerate his ba, planning for Dunn pays off)
UT- Hamilton (11th: Got him where I wanted, whole draft was pissed)

Bench
Billy Butler- (15th: Had to have him, I think he is set to explode)
Bourn- (17th: good value here and will use him if I need speed, 40 SB poss)
JR Twoles (20th: backed up soto with him, excellent value here)
Adam Jones (23rd: big upside pick in the final round, worked with Upton last year)

Starters
Verlander (5th: Got the ace I wanted)
Harang (6th: Thank god I took him and 8 SPs went soon after)
Cain (9th: Pitching was getting lite, This is his 3rd year a nice #3)
John Maine (10th: With pitching going quick I grabbed my #4 who is in his 3rd year and is really developing)
Wainwright (12th: was the last guy in my tier, a solid #5 my only non-K guy)
Zach Grienke (18th: who knows what to expect but he has huge K potential
Dana Eveland (22nd: won spot, could be good)

Closers
Gagne (13th; I waited on closers to build a good offense and pitching, he was best avail)
Boroski (14th: he gets the job done and pitching well in the spring
Accardo: (21st; couldn’t pass, Ryan out indefinetly so could be good pick)

Good team.

Try to move Borowski though. He will kill you ERA and WHIP and thats what closers are supposed to help.

good well rounded team, i like the power and speed. good you have bourne to put in for matchups against your opponents.

i like the starters a lot. my only recomendation would be to keep an eye out for a closer. i like having 4 or 5 if possible. they always appear on the waiver wire during the season

hope that helps

good luck

Thanks. The closer thing is my only concern right now but I have 3 to start and I am usually quick to the WW so I am not overly worried.

Soory for my own notes but it is always good to know the persons mind set when drafting, I find it helps me draft and learn when reading someone elses thoughts as well.

Thanks again

Dont rely on Soto too much make sure to have a backup plan incase he doesnt do what is expected of him. Other than that very good offense. Your Starting Pitching is incredible except your last 2 I dont particularly like them. And your Closers definitely need help. If possible see if you can get Troy Percival and get rid of Borowiski. If not than just keep on looking during the season for eventual closers. you could probably pick up 1 or 2. Hope that Helped. GOOD LUCK!

great team. wainwright should have a good year. closer does need help but they're always out there. i may drop one or both of last 2 starters and stash one or two next-in-line set up men. guys like bell or broxton. they also boost era whip and k's. but overall youre looking pretty solid.
