Yahoo 10 Team 5x5 H2H, How'd I do? WHIR!

Postby Deesul » Sat Mar 28, 2009 10:58 pm

Standard 5x5 H2H, the only difference being specified outfield positions. I've included the round I drafted them as well, I drafted 7th.

C: A.J. Pierzynski (14th)
1B: Garrett Atkins (8th)
2B: Brandon Phillips (3rd)
3B: David Wright (1st)
SS: Michael Young (10th)
LF: Manny Ramirez (5th)
CF: Shane Victorino (7th)
RF: Josh Hamilton (2nd)
UT: David Ortiz (12th)
BN: Justin Upton (18th)
BN: Alex Rodriguez (4th)
BN: Pablo Sandoval (19th)

SP: Cole Hamels (6th), Chad Billingsley (9th), Roy Oswalt (11th), Javier Vazquez (13th), Scott Baker (17th), Paul Maholm (20th)
RP: Troy Percival (15th), Matt Lindstrom (16th), Joel Hanrahan (21st)
--

As soon as Arod hits the DL I'll be picking up Cameron Maybin or Elvis Andrus or maybe whoever wins the 5th rotation spot for Boston; Brad Penny or Clay Bucholz.

Very Very good draft. My main concern with your team would be your Relief Pitching. You need a solid Closer or even a midtier closer. Your pitching staff i think will do amazing and i like the Scott Baker pick, I think he will perform very well this year.

Another concern is your catcher. I think you can improve your catcher position. Just watch for sleepers at the catcher position. My only other concern would be David Ortiz's production. IF he stays healthy and puts up #'s like he used to then your lineup will be nearly perfect.

Great draft IMO.

I agree with getting a good closer, then you could be unstoppable, Kurt Suzuki is a good sleeper catcher, should get 500+ at bats like last season, and hit .279 7 hrs could. go as high as 15 this year. I like Andrus as a pick up to balance out if Michael Young struggles this year, plus if Ortiz has a down year again you could plug A-Rod in UTIL, and trade Ortiz for a closer, though I would do that now and play Sandoval in the UTIL spot until A-Rod gets better.

Help with mine?

pretty darned good team, I like Arod in the 4th and how the heck did you get Wright with the 7th pick?

I think you should focus on trading for one top closer
(and you can usually find one or two decent options on th FA pile) maybe Motte or Perez if they werent drafted?

lik th one guy said AJ isnt th greatest but catcher is hard
what about the guy in Florida?

Thanks jealousblues,
Yeah ARod kept falling and it hit my pick in the 4th and I figured that could make my season if he comes back strong when he returns. I have NO idea how I got Wright, well yes I do, because a couple people before me made some outright freaky picks, here was our first round:

1. Hanley Ramírez
2. Albert Pujols
3. José Reyes
4. Jimmy Rollins
5. Evan Longoria
6. Miguel Cabrera
7. David Wright
8. Grady Sizemore
9. Chase Utley
10. Ryan Braun

So yeah, bizarre. Thanks for the tips. I'm thinking offering Ortiz for Fuentes maybe. Tricky thing to pull off in a 10 team league. Perez and Qualls are still on our waiver wire, maybe I should pick up one of those but I don't think Perex has locked up the closer job yet, has he?

Please don't trade Ortiz for a closer. If Qualls is still there, he's completely rosterable and valuable. As long as Ortiz qualifies at 1B so that you can upgrade Atkins when A-Rod returns, you're flying. If he only qualifies at UTIL, then you trade him or A-Rod later.

If Sandoval qualifies at C, then I turf AJ (very much replaceable) for Qualls now.

That's hardly a lot of advice, but you nailed this draft. I can't make up weaknesses to sound smart ;-D

Everey one thinks ortiz will rebound, I see last season as a start to a big decline, especially sincehe is off the roids now, I would trade him while his value is still there, and Fuentes would be a good pick up for him

comment on mine, please?

Desul, thanks for the comments on my team. I read all the other replys to your team and it seems everyone is on the same page with getting a quality RP, the question is who do you give up? The only creative thing that I can offer is picking up new Cub closer Gregg if he is still available.
