Our league keeps 5 players each year and then we do a slow draft offline for round 6 before jumping online for the remaining rounds through Yahoo.
My Keepers: 1 - D Wright 2 - G. Sizemore 3 - C. Utley 4 - A. Soriano 5 - P. Fielder
My 6th Round pick: S. Victorino (I had the 9th pick in the round).
We start our online draft on Monday night w/round 7 and I pick 2nd. So far, no catchers have been selected. I usually wait until well into the teens to look at taking a catcher. That was my plan this year as well. However, that was before I realized all the catchers would be there for my pick in the 7th round. I'm still leaning against picking a catcher, but haven't completely made up my mind. I was planning on taking my first SP.
Here are the SP who HAVE been taken: J. Santana T. Lincecum C. Sabathia B. Webb C. Hamels R. Halladay J. Peavy D. Haren F. Liriano
Available: E. Santana, J. Lackey, J. Shields, C. Billingsley, F. Hernandez, R. Oswalt, J. Beckett
SS's that have been taken: H. Ramirez J. Reyes J. Rollins R. Furcal Al. Ramirez D. Jeter
Didn't need to take a SS in the 6th because only one team drafts before my pick in the 7th and he has J. Reyes. Tempted to take Drew or Tulo in the 7th, but I may hold off because neither of them are sure-things. If I miss them, I can always fall back on Peralta and/or Hardy in the 10th/11th without a HUGE drop-off.
Drew is a sure thing IMO. Hardy is also. He's been pretty consistant. I'd be happy if you pass up drew and get Hardy since he's available. He's on that tier 2 of SS in the top 10 and will put up solid numbers for you. Let's see if Mac is available I'd snatch him up now. Lackey or Bills would also be a good target as well.
The best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be!
