Need help with Dynasty Draft (time sensitive) WHIR

Postby Tasco » Fri Apr 25, 2008 5:37 am

Hey,

I would be happy to get some help on my next pick in the current draft.
It's the second year Draft of an 18 teams H2H Dynasty league, so prospects like chamberlain, bruce, votto, etc. aren't available.

I'm looking for the best talent available, position and ETA don't really matter, since I'm restructuring completely.

This is how the draft looks like until now (will keep updated):


1. David Price; 2. Rick Porcello; 3. Matt Wieters; 4. Sam Narron; 5. Mike Moustakas; 6. Josh Vitters; 7. Jason Heyward; 8. Jordan Schafer;
9. Tim Alderson; 10. Matt LaPorta; 11. Jarrod Parker; 12. missed pick ;13. Fowler; 14. Anderson; 15. detwiler ; 16. mills; 17. duensing; 18. missed pick; 19. Jennings(me); 24. (me); 26. (me); 35. (me); 37. (me)

Players eligible are: Prospects from Draft 2007, Undraftees from last year (decent undraftees: fowler, nelson, de lo santos, jennings, g. parra, rowell, r. liz).

Who should I target? I was thinking of Jennings or De Los Santos with my 2nd pick (19), then maybe Parra, Weglarz or Kalish.
I'm fine with high risk/high reward type of guys, or with a long way to go to the Majors. Who are interesting sleepers, or undervalued prospect which may be Consensus Top 100 from next year?

Whir obviously

Well, with the players you listed, I would choose hitting over pitchimg.

So, Desmond Jennings would be first. I would also, if he fits and hasn't been chosen, Fernando Perez is a guy that is similar to Jennings but is a year closer to the bigs.

Other guys would be

Beau Mills - 3b,1b CLE
Wes Hodges - 3b CLE
Jesus Montero - C/1b NYY
Austin Jackson - CF NYY
Mike Saunders - CF SEA
Joe Benson - OF Minnesota
Wilson Ramos - C Minnesota
Angel Villalona - 1b - SF

Those are the guys off the top of my head that would fit in with who I would choose. I am not as high on Kalish as some, but still expect the hype to pump his value during his minor league progression....Sorry if these guys are not available/fit the criteria you are looking for

Thx Thomas, I took Jennings, my next pick will be up in 6 hours, so help on my next one would be very appreciated.

Guys toward which I'm leaning if they eventually fall to me: Teagarden, Parra, De Los Santos, Kalish, Weglarz, Hodges. Any thoughts on them or other players which you think are better?

Thx :-D

Jackson, Montero, Villalona all went last year already, Mills was chosen 2 picks before me

Hmmmm, let me see. Off the top of my head, I would throw these names out there:

Matt Antonelli - Don't expect too much power in Petco, but would expect 20 doubles and 20 SBs his first year.
Carlos Truinfel
Chris Davis
Hank Conger
Gorkys Hernandez
Drew Stubbs
Mitch Canham
Julio Borbon
Andrew Brackman
Joe Savery

Hope this helps/fits....

I've heard great things about Teagarden and De Los Santos. It really depends on how your roster looks. Is your hitting or pitching strong?

Thomas unfortunately almost all the players you mentioned were already taken last year ;-)

I finished up with picking: Price, Jennings, Teagarden, G. Parra, Weglarz, Kalish and Hanson.

Good to hear Teagarden apparently wasn't a bad pick, thx :-b

P.s.: jm your topic seems not to exist, send me a PM with the link to your topic and I'll help. :-)
