Another Cafe-influenced-draft complete! WHIR

Postby urbanbreez » Tue Apr 07, 2009 3:57 am

Hi Cafe-aholics,

Just wanted to get some thoughts on how well (or not) I did in my 10 team H2H league. Can you find the most "glaring" hole(s) in my line-up? What was the best SOD (steal of the draft) and what seems to be the ROD (reach of the draft)? WHIR, as always. My thoughts are expressed as smilies.

Round Pick Player Position:
1. (10) Ryan Braun OF ;-D
2. (11) Mark Teixeira 1B ;-D
3. (30) Brian Roberts 2B :-L
4. (31) Nick Markakis OF :-?

8. (71) Shane Victorino OF :-°
9. (90) Stephen Drew SS :-?

Good team for a 10 team league. I don't get the man-love for Markakis that early since he is good for 20 HR 10 SB which is good but not great. But that's probably not bad. The steals were the Cueto/Johnson/Johnson run at the end that solidified your pitching late.

Hey there, I really like your offense, however I am not so high on your pitching staff. I think you have a lot of young talent but you don't have those 1 or 2 proven veteran pitchers who you can rely on. I wouldn't worry yet though, you have lots of trade bait and there are sure to be a few pitchers that come out of the wood work this season that will be available on the WW, good luck!

Help with mine?

Might not be enough closers for a ten teamer. Work the WW to get another closer.

good luck

I think Markakis was the biggest reach for sure. And yeah, I'm watching Perlick's closer thread like a hawk.

Got a question, would you drop either Aviles or Beltre for Ryan Perry? I only have two closers, someone mentioned that was a little weak, I agree.

I would hold off an Perry for now, Aviles and Beltre have value and you could trade Aviles for sure. Perry won't be the closer for awhile and you could theoretically trade Aviles/Beltre for a mid level guy if another owner has a surplus of closers.
