ON THE CLOCK in Minor/Major League Draft HELP!

Postby MG4hand4 » Tue Mar 03, 2009 3:29 pm

I'm in the midst of a first year player draft/Free agent major league player draft. I am in a Dynasty League where we kept rosters at 25 men so basically the we are picking from a limited group of major leaguers. The best pitcher out there is Mike Gonzalez, Brandon Lyon, Kenshin Kawakami, Wandy Rodriguez/types. We also keep 12 minor leaguers so not many top talent is available from last year. It is my pick now here is how the first 6 picks went:

1. Smoak
2. Alvarez
3. Matusz
4. Jose Lopez
5. Gordon Beckham
6. Michael Inoa
7. MY PICK

My relievers are slack with Huston Street, George Sherill, and Tony Pena so I am leaning toward Mike Gonzalez. My favorite Minor leauger is Aaron Hicks. I think he is special. Also I am well aware that Buster Posey is the best player available, and I am not supposed to worry about positions in the minors, but I have McCann on my majors and Jesus Montero in my minors. I just don't want another catcher.

Finally I have been offered this trade:
Johnathon Sanchez and Manny Corpas (I have Street remember) for Billy Butler and my 7th pick,

Just let me know what you would do in my shoes QUICK!

I will help you where I can...

Thanx
Michael

That trade isn't very good. So decline that.

I think I look at Posey or Alonso. I dislike closers in dynasties because one minute they are closing the next minute they aren't. I would go with the high upside player that will be helping your team for 10 years. I know you already have McCann but I think Posey is the BPA and when you're dealing with prospects you can always trade them for what you need. Alonso is pretty close so if you needed a 1B/UTIL that would also make sense. You could also go with Hicks or Hosmer, but they are probably looking at 3+ yrs before reaching the majors and then a couple more yrs until they become good.

Maybe consider Madison Bumgardner there?

It's pretty much every 08 draftee that has not been picked. EVERY top of the line minor leaguer is on a team already. Dayan Viciedo is out there also.

I've narrowed it down to Gonzalez or Posey, no trade

I always tend to chase saves, so I go Posey there.

Yoder Alonso or Brett Wallace, no question for me. I could see Posey or Gonzo, but I'm not the fan of chasing saves or catchers. Grab a young power bat while you can.
