Just drafted... how'd I do?

Postby acw9293 » Thu Feb 28, 2013 2:25 am

I'm feeling pretty good about this one. Didn't reach, was able to let Rizzo (my favorite player) go without picking him a couple rounds too early for safety, and got Castro (another love of mine) at a bargain price.
10-team, head-to-head category league. Standard categories and scoring.
Chronologically,
1) Prince Fielder, 1B
2) Giancarlo Stanton, OF
3) Jason Heyward, OF
4) Starlin Castro, SS
5) Ryan Zimmerman, 3B
6) Yu Darvish, SP
7) Desmond Jennings, OF
8) Roy Halladay, SP
9) Jose Altuve, 2B
10) Max Scherzer, SP
11) Eric Hosmer, 1B
12) Josh Johnson, SP
13) Brett Gardner, OF
14) John Axford, RP
15) Adam LaRoche, 1B
16) C.J. Wilson, SP
17) Rafael Betancourt, RP
18) Miguel Montero, C
19) Alexei Ramirez, SS
20) Mike Minor, SP
21) Cameron Maybin, OF
22) Jurickson Profar, 2B
23) Casey Janssen, RP
24) Josh Beckett, SP
25) Marco Estrada, SP
26) Bruce Rondon, RP
27) Brett Jackson, OF (just screwing around, dropped him to pick up Adam Eaton)

So... how'd I do?

I think you did very well. I like your pitching choices that allowed you to get solid hitters in first few rounds.

My fav picks for you are Maybin, Profar, and Rondon. I think they will pay off.

That's easily one of the most balanced hitting lineups I've seen so far this young season (mock & actual teams included.) You've got power with Prince, Stanton and Zimmerman, and Altuve & Jennings give you speed, while Heyward will give you a bit of both. There's no one on this team who'll drastically bring your average down, nice work ;-D

Your pitchers aren't incredible, but I don't think they have to be. People are very high on Darvish this year (I personally am not) but I like him as your ace in round 6. You have several pitchers who seem to be very undervalued (Halladay...he's still good, Johnson...solid WHIP & ERA, C.J. Wilson...could have a turnaround season and get back to some kind of relevance) and while your top 2 relievers aren't entirely consistent, there's plenty of options out there if they fall apart, including two more on your bench.

I'd say 9 out of 10 and you'll definitely be a playoff team

I think you did great....


when I got thru round five and still saw no pitchers I was worried for you, but I think you did a great job putting a rotation together. It's not going to be near the best rotation in the league.....but it should be solid.

Really like your hitters.....no holes position-wise....and you really have all the categories covered.


Very well done.....you should be one of the pre-season faves. Now your goal going forward is to find ways to shore up your pitching (through free agents or low-key trades) without giving away your advantage in hitting. (the last thing you need to do is try to make some kind of blockbuster trade)

help with mine?

Very nice job, I really like this team. Smart picks, and the risk/reward guys are guys that can contribute more than they might hurt and in the right spots I really like Eaton in the 27th round too! ;-D

Very, very smart pitching sequence. It might not be the strongest staff but for where you picked you maxed the heck out of your opportunities. This is contending team with enough talent and potential breakouts that you could even weather some injuries and bad luck very nicely and still be right there.

Congrats... ;-D
