I'm optimistic...Then again....

Postby AntLive » Fri Mar 19, 2004 9:59 pm

I'm always optimistic before the first pitch is thrown. This is a 20 team league. It was a live draft. How did I do? Two mistakes I made were drafting Worrell thinking he was closing(I definetly had a brain fart there. Luckily there is a holds category) and I drafted E. Young as my 2B. (I forgot it was the other Young who is the starter at SS.) Here is the team:

C M. LeCroy (Min - C,1B,DH)
1B R. Sexson (Ari - 1B)
2B E. Young (Tex - 2B)
3B M. Teixeira (Tex - 1B,3B)
SS Á. Rodríguez (NYY - SS)
LF C. Floyd (NYM - LF)
CF M. Tucker (SF - LF,CF,RF,DH)
RF T. Nixon (Bos - RF)
OF M. Mora (Bal - LF)
Util T. Redman (Pit - CF)
Util G. Matthews Jr. (Atl - LF,CF,RF)
Util C. Crisp (Cle - LF,CF)
BN D. Bautista (Ari - CF,RF)
BN C. Izturis (LA - SS)
BN B. Hill (Pit - 2B)

SP R. Johnson (Ari - SP)
SP H. Nomo (LA - SP)
SP B. Myers (Phi - SP)
SP K. Ishii (LA - SP)
RP T. Worrell (Phi - RP)
RP A. Benítez (Fla - RP)
RP S. Takatsu (CWS - RP)
P R. Helling (Min - SP,RP)
P J. Seo (NYM - SP)
P K. Ainsworth (Bal - SP)
BN J. Davis (Cle - SP)
BN J. Kershner (Tor - RP)

There it is. Do I have a chance? Thanks.

your starting pitching is weak. randy is not a sure thing and nomo and ishii are awful. comb the ww for some strikeout pitchers (peavy, etc)

Problem with that is there are 20 teams and most or all SP are gone. I will have to wait till the season starts and comb the WW like crazy. I know my pitching is week but how does my O look for a 20 team league?

I also offered E. Young or D. Relaford. Relaford is starting. Another manager said Reyes is up for grabs. I have offered him some trades but he has turned me down. Right now I have offered him E.young and G. Mathews Jr. for Reyes and J. Drew. What other player can I offer to get Reyes? Or a combo? I could offer M. Tucker? What is everyones thoughts?

im my league reyes went about 15 rounds before eric young and drew went in the final round so you'll have to do better than that. would you accept that deal to get Young?

No. This is why I'm posting here to see what I could do to make it happen. Obviously I wouldn't take the trade if I'm the one offering it. I want advice on what someone would do in my shoes.

How many teams are in your league?
