three questions

Postby canibus » Sat Mar 20, 2004 3:41 pm

1. Do you see much difference between the potential of the following OF to have decent years: Guillen, Gibbons, Sanders, Lofton, Encarnacion. I have them ranked approx. loke that.

2. Are D.Roberts or A.Sanchez a worthwhile pick very late in a 10 team H2H draft?

3. Is Adam Kennedy a good pick in the second to last round? He'd be replacing Reyes as my starting 2B until he's healthy/eligible. Seems to me like he has good value late in the draft, better than Hairston, Jimenez, Walker, E.Young, etc. anyway

1. I'd put them in the same order you've got them in, except I'd transpose Guillen and Gibbons.

2. I doubt it, unless you're seriously lacking in speed. Even then, probably not.

3. Sure, why not. And Reyes keeps having problems with his hamstring, so you may want to keep and eye on Kennedy during the season.

1. Good order. Guillen will be helped in Anaheims order.

2. Nope :-t

3. Kennedy will make a good backup. ;-D

Good luck.

Thanks for the responses, abs ad.

I'm thinking of going with A. Kennedy and B. Myers but also considering: Jeromy Burnitz, Graves, Valverde, Affeldt, , Koch, Eaton, AJ Burnett.

What do you think? Do I need to grab an OF to backup Dunn and Burrell, or is Sanders (who I have at UTIL) enough? Thanks.
My team:
Standard 5x5 cats. H2H 10 team Weekly lineups

C Jason Kendall-
1B Aubrey Huff OF- Some rankings have him going in the 2nd round? That seems rediculous, but he should be good this year and his 1B/OF elig. is a plus.

2B Jose Reyes SS- Won't be 2B elig for 15 games.
SS Nomar Garciaparra- Should be balls out this year...
3B Eric Chavez-
OF Gary Sheffield NYA- Fact that he might be on roids the only negative. Now on the Yanks a big +.
OF Carlos Lee-
OF Gibbons-
OF Burrell-

Util R.Sanders
Bench -A.Dunn, E. Milton, BH Kim(shoulder),

SP Johan Santana-
SP Josh Beckett- Only negative is that he has yet to pitch a full season. Guess I should worry a ltitle.
SP Randy Wolf PHI-
RP Eric Gagne-The K's and saves of 2 closers combined ;-)
RP Matt Mantei- Bit of an injury risk. Valverde will takeover if he falters.
