WINNERLEAGUE DRAFT IN 2 HOURS

Postby BstonBruin » Fri Mar 05, 2004 3:30 pm

I've taken parts in many drafts including some last year, however I never really have a strategy in terms of getting the most successful team together. Any advice or strategies on what round to pick who, etc..
It would be greatly appreciated

Take the best available through the first 5 or six rounds, without even thinking about the position, then begin to fill in the holes and get your sleepers in the middle and late rounds.

I think strength at 2B and SS are key. 5x5 players should also be primary targets. The more guys you can get that generate numbers in all categories the better. I take guys that can get me 25hr's and 25sb's at .280 before I target the big power guys. If not, you have to scarifice a spot for someone like Dave Roberts to get steals, but he kills you elsewhere. Starting pitching is important for you number 1 and 2 starters, after that you can draft 2 average guys, a few sleepers and watch the wire during the season. Guys like Redman, Zambrano, Livan, etc. will be on the wire and can help you big time. It takes a bit more work, but makes the game that much more fun...imo...good luck

Go for 2B/3B to begin the draft. Also, if Lowell is there in the 4th round and you need a 3B, seriously consider taking him. I think he'll be better than Chavez, and the only evidence I seee is that Chavez will be the #3 3B at best. Yet he's often drafted as #1 or #2.

My advice is: IF first, but don't pass up on the stars at OF and SP if they slip.
