Early draft. How did I do?

Postby speeds102 » Sun Mar 04, 2012 12:13 pm

I had the 4th pick. Surprised Pujols fell so far.

C: Avila
1b: Pujols
2b: Kinsler
SS: Jeter
3B: ARod
OF: Stanton, Crawford, Boesch
Util: Freeman, Butler

Bn: A. Jackson, Trout, LaHair

SP: Greinke, Kennedy
RP: Papplebon, Bailey
P: Farnsworth
P: Moore
P: Lilly

BN: C. Lewis, Fister, Chapman

There is a huge hole in my outfield with Boesch. I like him batting 2nd in that Tigers lineup though. Pick by Pick:

1. (4) Albert Pujols (LAA - 1B)
2. (21) Ian Kinsler (Tex - 2B)
3. (28) Giancarlo Stanton (Mia - OF)
4. (45) Zack Greinke (Mil - SP)
5. (52) Alex Rodriguez (NYY - 3B)
6. (69) Jonathan Papelbon (Phi - RP)
7. (76) Ian Kennedy (Ari - SP)
8. (93) Carl Crawford (Bos - OF)
9. (100) Matt Moore (TB - RP)
10. (117) Alex Avila (Det - C)
11. (124) Andrew Bailey (Bos - RP)
12. (141) Derek Jeter (NYY - SS)
13. (148) Freddie Freeman (Atl - 1B)
14. (165) Doug Fister (Det - SP)
15. (172) Billy Butler (KC - 1B)
16. (189) Kyle Farnsworth (TB - RP)
17. (196) Brennan Boesch (Det - OF)
18. (213) Ted Lilly (LAD - SP)
19. (220) Austin Jackson (Det - OF)
20. (237) Colby Lewis (Tex - SP)
21. (244) Mike Trout (LAA - OF)
22. (261) Aroldis Chapman (Cin - RP)
23. (268) Bryan LaHair (ChC - OF)
Dwight Schrute: Michael, you forgot to mention the herpes.
Michael Scott: It didn't come out organically.

How many teams? 5x5?
I really like how you did in that draft. You got nearly everyone about 10 spots after their MDP.
I'm pretty high on Jackson, so that may help with your Boesch issue. Or Crawford could come back really slowly and continue his decline, and you need them both. ARod hasn't played 150 games in a couple of years though, but moving either Freeman or Butler for a 3B is going to be tough, but a backup seems like a good idea. I'm not expecting LaHair to be starting in June.
Pitching looks good with Greinke, Kennedy and Moore.

Looks pretty good just be careful with Crawford,arod, and jeter; injury issues and all. I think lehair may surprise some people as well as Jackson and Boesch.

1 thing i didnt like was kinsler in the 2nd...he had a career year last year and dont think hell do it again.

everything else was great, stanton is a beast and kind of surprised he went 28th overall, grabbing crawford late was a steal. Freeman and fister back to back is going to be the best thing about your team!

one thing I don't like about your team is that its a couple of injuries away from being in the basement, 5 key players in your roster are injury prone (Jeter, A-Rod, CC, Kinsler, Baily).

I dropped Trout, LaHair for Chisenhall and Pagan.
