Hmm...I was trying to draft balanced hitters during the draft.
These are the following problems I've heard so far from you guys:
1. Lack of power
Yup, I acknowledge that. I basically used an excel spread sheet and drafted my outfield according to guys that needed the fewest ABs per HR. Edmonds ranked 2nd and Juan Gone ranked 4th for all OF. They're outfielders so I hope to get them replaced by waiver guys if they go down. Although a healthy season from both would be nice.
Walker, I read, was chewed out last year for his lack of dedication, I drafted him after hearing he's in great shape coming into camp and hope the criticism last year worked.
2. Lack of quality starters
Hmm, I thought I did pretty good with Vazquez, Santana, Webb, Contreras.
They all play either on a winner or in a weak division and they all have high strikeout ratios. They all had a 8.5 K/9IP ratio last year and are all supposed to have better win totals this year. There's still a couple guys left on waiver (e.g. Ponson, Sheets, Wakefield, Penny), should I get one of them?
3. Lack of speed
I tried getting 5-tool guys in my lineup rather than base-stealer that sacrifice my OPS points (e.g. Juan Pierre). My steals projections for this year on my 4 main base-stealer:
11 - Ivan Rodriguez
15 - Derek Lee
25 - Orlando Cabrera
38 - Carlos Beltran
89 - Total for the 4
Oh, btw, I dropped Charles Johnson and picked up Gibbons. Guess another guy that has 100 rbi's last year wouldn't hurt! Thanks for the input guys
