The league: 18 team 5x5 roto. The draft is done in four sections. We submit draft lists to the commissioner for each section and he does the draft. I won the league last season, so I picked last in round one of the snake draft. When the draft resumes with round 18, I will have the first pick. I only have 3 slots to fill in the final 6 rounds because keepers filled the other slots. I will have picks 1, 24, and 42.
Here is what my roster looks like thus far:
C V Martinez
CI A Gonzalez
OF N Cruz
OF C Gomez
P Jonathan O Sanchez
P B Wilson
We have the flexibility to carry a DH or an extra pitcher. I prefer to have the DH. Matsui is DH eligible, so I can switch him and draft another OF. There isn't much left in the way of DH's, so drafting another OF is probably what I will do.
Here are some of the names that are available:
I'm not going to even list the pitchers because I've already decided that I will arrange my list so that my pitcher will be my last pick, number 42 in this section of the draft.
At this point in the draft, I like to get guys with a lot of upside, and that will probably be great keepers for next year. Having said that, I am inclined to put Jed Lowrie as the top name on my list, and then hope that I can get Kendry Morales with my pick at the 24 slot.
If anybody sees better options for me, I am open to suggestions.
