Anyone able to do the perfect draft?

Postby CadensDad » Sun Apr 22, 2012 7:58 pm

Kinda weird question but as of today, what would be the perfect draft done for this year? And I don't mean getting Kemp, Pujols, Hanley, Adrian, Miggy on the same team. I mean legit possible draft results.

1st round Matt Kemp OF LAD
2nd Round Ian Kinsler 2B TEX
3rd Round Josh Hamilton OF TEX
4th Round Stephen Strasburg SP WAS

Any of you stat guys ever pushed the thought around of what could have been?

You would certainly have the perfect start to the season with that, but I'm a little more interested in talking about the perfect draft when it comes to August or September.

I'll tell you in about four months :-b

Which of the players listed do you think won't be there by the end of the season? I really like the position eligibility of Young, Cuddyer and also the steals Bonifacio will accumulate. Cain may or may not be a #1 fantasy starter, but he has a lot of believers, including the Giants office. Headley and Pena?

In that Holics top 60 mock, my top 3 picks were perfect, Kemp/Verlander/Hamilton, whiffed on Hosmer, then picked up Castro in Round 5. Too bad that was just a mock and my real teams have been terrible. :-{

the biggest thing that prevented me from doing a great draft is getting 3 seemingly elite closers between pick 134 and pick 190. TJ claimed all of them and the rest of my pitching staff after Garza has been unimpressive.

Kemp, Napoli, Swish and Willingham have been carrying my team so far.

I think it's a bit early to come to that conclusion. I would think it would take the better part of a season to really get an idea of what the ideal draft is.

I had my best draft ever in a 16-teamer last year. These were my top 14 picks.

Braun
Bautista
J Upton
Verlander
Furcal
Soria
Gardner
Wandy
Valverde
Scott
Nolasco
B Roberts
Walker
Zimmermann

I also had Joyce, Jurrjens, and Walden in the last 5 picks. I basically ran away with the league and permanently replaced maybe three players in my lineup.
