Very well-balanced team. Anything missing?

Postby TML49 » Thu Mar 11, 2004 5:13 pm

This is from a 10-team, 5x5 ESPN Rotisserie draft. I had the 9th pick. I think that I've set up this team so that I may not win any category, but hopefully I'll finish in the top half of every category. Any feedback would be great. The round that i picked each player is in brackets.

P Mark Prior (1)
P Mariano Rivera (5)
P Bartolo Colon (8)
P Randy Wolf (11)
P Greg Maddux (13)
P Jorge Julio (15)

Not everyone will agree with me, particularly the folks who shy away from drafting a pitcher in the opening round, but I really like this team. You do have good balance, although a bit more speed might be nice. You certainly were able to pick up great value in the draft (the Wolf pick, in particular, stands out). Taking Julio as your second closer was a bit of a risk (I probably would have done so a few rounds earlier), but Biddle in round 24 is a good - and cheap - insurance policy.

In any case, I shouldn't nit-pick - this looks like a very solid draft. ;-D

Only nitpick is you could use a bit more speed. Rocks like Giambi and Manny won't be getting those occasional steals that might offset not having a big speed threat.
