Drafted 3rd in a 10 team snake- how did I do?

Postby Bunker » Wed Mar 23, 2011 8:16 am

Its a 10 team H2H 6X6
(R, H, HR, RBI, SB, OBP)
C: Wieters
1B: Teixeira
2B: Zobrist
3B: Beltre
IF: Butler
OF: McCutchen, Ethier, Granderson
U: Lind
B: M. Young, L Scott, Bourn, Posada
(W, L, SV, K, ERA, WHIP)
SP: Lincecum, Sabathia, Colby Lewis, Geo Gonzalez, Myers
RP: Wilson, Papelbon, Bailey

Drafted 3rd overall and went Tulo first as I figured I could still end up with a good 1B. Now it seems I have a lot and am weak at 2B but have a lot of 1B/Utils which isnt bad as we also use a MI.

Was thinking of trying to grab one of the utility 2B/SS off the waiver wire- sort of limited at the moment with the following as choices: Aviles, Uribe, Infante, Scutaro, or Lowrie. The other 2B that looks good is Raburn.

Who is the "most dropable" on this team? I sort of think Scott and Myers would be the first I would drop, but not 100%

I would drop Scott for Raburn. You could also try to trade for antoher SP. See what you could get for Posada, it's not a good idea to carry 2 catchers in such a shallow player pool. Your staff seems really weak for a 10 team H2H.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Thanks!

I already dropped Myers for Kuroda. I also have Hughes on the WW- so I could drop Posada for him. Posada was my last pick in the draft, so I dont think I can get much for him trade-wise.

Other SPs besides Hughs, Shields, Zimmerman, Ian Kennedy and Cahill.

I like the offense, but definetely drop posada.

the addition of L's is an interesting cat. makes Myers much less valuable, because for the Astros he could pitch well all season and end up 8-12..(conversely, makes CC way more valuable) Kuroda was a great pickup as he is a great WHIP saver. very surprised that Kuroda was even on the wire.

Good team-like others have said, if you do not have to play 2 catcher, I would not keep 2 on the roster, they just hold a spot that could be filled with better talent. I think you have a nice balanced team and if zobrist can bring up his numbers from last year, 2b will be fine.

please rate mine.
