Expansion Draft Analysis

Postby TheIceman » Thu Mar 05, 2009 10:51 am

So this year I entered a keeper league with 3 other teams as well and th league decided to do an expansion draft. The exisiting teams were allowed to protect a certain amount of players that we could not choose from. We then had 5 rounds while only being able to keep 3 of them. I had the 4th pick in a serpentine (spelling?) draft and here's what I came out with.

1st - Josh Hamilton
2nd - Roy Halladay
3rd - Carlos Beltran
4th - Ichiro Suzuki
5th - Roy Oswalt

I'm thinking of keeping the first three that I picked. What are your thoughts on who I drafted and who do you think I should keep going into prior to going into the final draft?

This is also a roto league and not a head to head.

Well I would definately keep the 1st 3, Even though Halladay and Oswalt are a wash, both play for so so team, the only upside is Oswalt is less injury prone, but Oswalt has been in a slight decline lately. Even though I like Suzuki's speed and BA, Beltran plays for a better team, isnt moddy and has more power

Thanks for the help with mine.

Hamilton is a no brainer. I would keep Beltran over Ichiro as Ichiro is older and in a pretty sorry lineup. Halladay wins over Oswalt. Halladay is not injury prone, he is accident prone. His DL stints are all due to bad luck and not sue to physical uissues. The gy is a total horse and will give you innings and complete games like no other. Oswalt....remember the first half of last year? His peripherals have been declining for a few years now, I'd pass him up.

My keepers would be:

Hamilton, Beltran, Halladay.
