Had my first official draft today, and I think it went fairly well.
12 Team, 6x6 league (adding Hits and ER as categories to standard 5x5)
H2H League - First overall Pick
Let me know what you guys think:
2B: Figgins (using Asdrubal here until the end of week 1)
SS: Asdrubal (using Everth here until the end of week 1)
UT: Michael Young
(obviously, with Youk, Pablo, Figgins, and Young, I'm stockpiling 3B here anticipating a trade)
Bench: Beltran, Blanks, Everth Cabrera
SP: Haren, Hanson, Webb, Harden, Latos
RP: Valverde, Soriano, FrankFrank, Mike Gonzalez, Liriano, and Gregerson.
Obviously, I'm weak at SP here, with a lot of injury risk as well (none of these guys may be viable in the second half of the season). But, I figure I'll start the year focusing on dominating bullpen stats (with ER helping here, and a 21 Min IP).
OF seems to be my other weak point, so I'm really leaning on Quentin or Beltran to have a hot start, or Blanks step into a bigger role. Not much left at OF on the WW, so I may be addressing this through trades as well.
At some point I'm figuring that I'll combine a closer (of which I have plenty extra) and a 3B (probably Pablo, if he has a hot start) to get a solid #2 SP.
Any input guys? Chapman is available on the WW, so I'm figuring on picking him up quickly if I can (probably dropping Gregerson or waiting until Webb/Harden starts on the DL).
