Off season Draft Help WHIR

Postby fish72292 » Sat Dec 22, 2012 1:52 pm

just recently took over a 10 team 30 man roster dynasty fantasy baseball league. Every 3 years they each cut 10 players and have a draft. I have the third pick in the draft and it does not snake so I have the third pick each round. My team is okay taking a quick glance at it as I just got given it yesterday and the draft is tonight at 10 est. This is my team:
1st Base-
Chris Davis
Nick Swisher
Michael Cuddyer
2nd Base-
Dan Uggla
Aaron Hill
3rd Base-
Ryan Zimmerman
Outfield -
Alfonso Soriano
Jayson Werth
Alex Rios
Chris Young (Oak)
Starting Pitchers-
Jerad Weaver
Adam Wainwright
Matt Garza
Tommy Milone
Colby Lewis
Ervin Santana
Relief Pitchers-
Chris Perez
Grant Balfour

I of course need to draft a short stop and a catcher in the first couple rounds since I have none. Some of the notable players that I have seen on the list are as follows: (I put this list together really quick)
1. Jimmy Rollins
2. Wilin Rosario
3. Derek Holland
4. Hiroki Kuroda
5. Greg Holland
6. Edwin Jackson
7. Ben Zobrist
8. AJ Griffin
9. Sergio Romo
10. Yonder Alonso
11. Angel Pagan
12. John Axford
13. Tim Hudson
14. Vance Worley
15. Francisco Liriano
16. Ricky Nolasco
17. Corey Luebke
18. Ubaldo Jiminez
19. Michael Pineda
20. Jason Vargas
21. Randall Delgado
22. Kyle Lohse
23. Drew Smyly
24. Josh Beckett
Logan Morrison
Cameron Maybin
Carlos Gomez
Zach Wheeler
Tyler Skaggs
Oscar Taveras
Erick Aybar
Dexter Fowler
Todd Frazier
Yonder Alonso
AJ Pierzinski
Ivan Nova

I am thinking of taking Jimmy Rollins first round and Wilin Rosario 2nd round if everything works out. Is that a good idea or is there another player that I should target more then either of those? Maybe Zobrist? Thanks for any help and sorry this is so long! Also I can have a 3 player minor league team and every other team has players stashed away and I have none so if I want to try and wait on Wheeler, Taveras, and Skaggs I could and add them to that team after the ten round draft.

I would definitely try to grab Rollins or Zobrist with the 3rd pick. One of them should be available. I would also try to grab another OF before picking up a C.

First pick, aim for Zobrist, Rollins, or Pierzynski

Second pick, aim for Rosario or...Pagan maybe? A starting pitcher and fill your empty positions later?

As for minor leaguers, definitely keep your eye on Taveras. The man's a beast.

Can you help on mine? I'm stuck: viewtopic.php?t=452962

In a 10 team league, i wouldn't worry too much about SS.
Rollins has declined so much, not big on him.

Zobrist, Rollins then Rosario.

I would probably make a move for Taveras and Wheeler earlier than usual in this league as both can be stars.
