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?
“Never argue with a idiot, because first they will bring you down to their level. Then beat you with experience.”
1. Kemp 2. Granderson 3. Hamilton 4. Napoli 5. Cain 6. Strasburg 7. Michael Young/Sandoval 8. Cuddyer 9. Gio G 10. Heyward/Beachy 12. Hardy (JK, Jeter ) 13. Beltran/Ethier 14. Feliz 15. D Holland 16. League 17. Motte 18. Bonifacio 19. Colby Lewis 20. Carlos Pena/Headley 21. Guerra 22. Sale 23. Encarnacion 24. Furcal
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.
