Dynasty draft help (WHIR)

Postby Baldrick » Sat Sep 28, 2013 2:56 am

This is 12 team 5x5 cat dynasty league that prior to the 2014 season was a no move league beside trades and 8-10 rounds of off-season drafting. Going into next season we've agreed to alter the no-moves clause to help with DL players. If a player is on the 15 day DL then a first come first serve for the waiver wire applies. Once your DL player is back to active you must drop the added player.

Essentially these DL moves only serve to add some competitiveness to the league as some teams (like mine) suffered from a lot of key players on the DL.

At any rate I finished dead last this season and have the first pick in the draft that has already commenced for the first set of 4-5 rounds.

I need help in quite a few areas, but SP is clearly the more pressing area, however I'm torn between going after a SP or scooping up someone like Sano?

C: Alex Avila
1B: Adam Lind
2B: Kyle Seager
3B: Brett Lawrie
SS: Xander Bogaerts
OF: Giancarlo Stanton, Michael Bourn, Torri Hunter
UT: Paul Konerko
BN: Adam Dunn, Mark Reynolds, Derek Jeter, Zack Cozrt, Jose Bautista, J.D. Martinez, Mark Teixeira, Jesus Montero

SP: Jacob Turner, Lance Lynn, Trevor Cahill, Jhoulys Chacin
RP: Drew Storen, Kenley Jansen, Sergio Santos, Jason Grilli
BN: Bruce Rondon, Dylan Bundy, Ross Detwiler, Phil Hughes, Edwin Jackson

Top SP according to Yahoo Rank: Bartolo Colon, Francisco Liriano, Partick Corbin, Travis Wood, Justin Masterson, Bronson Arroyo, Tony Gingrani, Scott Feldman.

Any help on which SP to take or if I should go with Sano would be appreciated along with the best drop option. Someone told me last season to drop Julio Teheran and I'm sort of regretting that decision now, heh.

Thanks.

I woudl let JD Martinez go and if you have a chance to get Miguel Angel Sano you better do that...there is nothing in SP FA that really excites me enough to get a big time power hitting 3b. I mean you'd really pass up E5 Jr over a marginal mid-to-back end arm. NO WAY!

Out of those SP I like Corbin 1st and Liriano 2nd if he falls.
Can you pick up any FA?
I see no point in hanging onto Reynolds or Martinez at this point, even Montero looks very shaky.
