Drafting Strategy

Postby BUCCOFAN » Mon Mar 29, 2004 3:04 pm

I am in a 10 team 5x5 league, $260 draft is this coming weekend, Protected list was submitted this past weekend, I still have to draft the following, 1-C, 1-2B, 1-SS, 1-3B, 4-OF, 4-SP. Toppers are re-entered into the draft, and are bid on, I have a right to top them when the bidding stops. (ex. Helton and Prior)

Keeper list,

C-M.Piazza($24)
1B-T.Helton(topper)
1B-R.Sexson($3)
2B-M.Giles($3)
SS-J.Reyes($1)
3B-M.Ensberg($5)
OF-B.Giles($28)
OF-S.Podsednik($1)
SP-M.Prior(topper)
SP-M.Mulder($28)
RP-J.Isringhausen($6)
RP-T.Hoffman($5)

My Question is, with the roster I have going in, what should I focus in on as a top pick, to bid on, I was thinking with the injuries to Prior and Mulder, probably a top Starting pitcher. Or should I go after a top Hitter, ex.third basemen. Also what should I allow the bidding to go on Prior, before I let him go, $35-40???? anything higher with the injuries, should I just walk away.

Any Info would be great, thanks again.

You got R. Sexson for 3$ 8-o

For Prior, over 35$ forget about him and try to get another stud like Mussina, Oswalt, Vasquez, Wood,

I think you also need another good OF and try to top Helton.

Actually, you don't really need to top Helton since you already have Sexson. Try to get a top OF like Beltran, Guerrero, Ramirez, Ordonez, Sosa, Bonds

Ya, I stoll Sexson at the end of last seasons draft, for $3. I was extremely happy with that one. ;-D ;-D ;-D

You have to remember 10 team league guys always sneak through, Star pitchers that are available, Halliday, Martinez, Johnson, Zito, Colon. Which one??? Like Pedro and Unit to have bounce back seasons and be healthy, Should I roll the dice, and pay top value for either???

I would look into a stud pitcher or power outfielder.
