Draft Based on Upside, not Track Record

Postby FindingTim » Sun Mar 21, 2010 12:40 am

Hello fellow fantasy baseball enthusiasts.
You mind giving feedback on my team? (if you give me a link to your team, I will gladly return the favor)

10 team- mixed 5x5
Starters
c. Matt Wieters
1b. Justin Morneau
2b. Ian Stewart
ss. Hanley Ramirez
3b. Pablo Sandoval
of. Justin Upton
of. Andre Ethier
of. Carlos Gonzalez
of. Julio Borbon
of. Juan Pierre
mi. Miguel Tejada
ci. Garrett Jones

p. C.C. Sabathia
p. Adam Wainwright
p. Ricky Nolasco
p. Jake Peavy
p. Clayton Kershaw
p. Rafael Soriano

p. Matt Latos

Bench
Neftali Feliz
J.A. Happ
Stephen Strasburg


--I pretty much nailed all of my draft targets, with the exception of Votto, McCutchen, and the high-risk, high-upside Francisco Liriano.
--Soriano is my only source of saves. I am considering dropping Strasburg/Happ in exchange for Ryan Madson/Franklyn Morales, both of whom are the lead candidate to step in for injury plagued closers (Brad Lidge, Huston Street).
--What are your thoughts? Is it worth it to hang on to Strasburg?

--I also badly wanted Josh Johnson, but Wainwright slid considerably and I snatched him up, then took JJ's teammate Ricky Nolasco a bit later.
--I am a bit concerned having two 'speed-only' guys in Borbon and Pierre- hopefully Ian Stewart and Garrett Jones balance them out.
--I snagged Tejada with the 2nd to last pick in the draft... what are your thoughts? Is he more valuable than a waiver player like Orlando Hudson?

thanks for reading- take it easy

today I dropped Strasburg for Franklyn Morales.
I also offered a guy Julio Borbon and J.A. Happ for Andrew McCutchen. Thoughts?
