Part 2: Deep League, Next pick?

Postby MadDog36 » Tue Feb 05, 2013 1:06 pm

My pitching staff is pretty much set now, so let's look to fill up these last three slots on my bench.

Other availables: (prospect pick) 3b Ryan Wheeler, OF Peter Bourjous, MI Logan Forsythe...I overlooked this last guy when I made my original post. There's nothing else really available as far as prospects, there was a run in the last run on pretty much a lot of other prospects that I was considering. I could snag Bourjous and have great OF depth, Forsythe as MI insurance or select Wheeler and stash him away on my farm (I have one slot left but already have Sano on my farm..)

Also, drafted a couple more rounds since lasting postings so I'll do an update:
And I did a trade giving up David Ortiz and Jason Vargas and in return I got Lance Lynn, Matt Joyce and Kendrys Morales - it was a deep league move. Ortiz probably retires at seasons end. I like having OF depth with such a deep league and starting 5. Joyce and Morales provides power that I gave up and Lynn gives me legit SP depth since I passed on a couple good arms in draft. I think I did well on that trade buying low on both Joyce and Morales, we'll see.

Also have an offer for my Kenley *3 years of ownership for his Maicer Izturis 1 year + 1 option? Should I do it? I don't like giving up my good young arm and there aren't many decent options available either. But it would be nice depth in case I have an injury to my INF.

Current team
C Wilin Rosario
1b Adam A. Laroche

I think I would take Bourjous for some depth. He isn't great but he is solid. I don't think I would make that trade with Kenley. While normally I have no problems dealing RP, I don't think this deal does enough for you.

I would take Forsythe here, you have alot of OF'ers as is and could use the MI depth.

Rejected Izturis offer I was leaning that way.
Selected Logan Forsythe and I'm getting flack for it (another guy 3 picks from me had his eye on him for his INF slot) - well that happens I've had two picks stolen from me so :P

Anywho, I'm liking my team now. What are some deep prospects (OF especially that I should look to draft in the last 3 rounds) - I have two slots open in my prospect farm (no current OF prospects and would like to take 2 in these last couple rounds) - what I'm going to do is promote Randall Delgado from my farm when and if he makes the rotation (or if I have someone go on the DL have 2 DL spots) and sign the best available SP prospect in his place.
