Just had our draft last night, some follow up ?'s

Postby rotisseriking » Thu Mar 20, 2003 9:12 am

9 team league (1 guy dropped last minute), standard 5x5 scoring. We drafted pitchers first then hitters. Here's my team:

C-kendall ($8), pierzynski($3)
1B-sexson ($9)
2B-soriano ($27)
SS-furcal ($9)
3B-boone ($16)
1B/3B-beltre ($4)
2B/SS-hernandez, jo ($4)
OF-pujols ($35), griffey ($6), kearns ($1), sanchez ($1), kotsay ($3)
DH-phelps ($1)

SP-burnett ($12), piniero ($13), ortiz, ramon ($8), moyer ($6), lidle ($1), radke ($2)
RP-smoltz ($28), dotel ($5), koch ($18)

Questions: Do I have too much speed and not enough power? How do my starters look? I have a lot of money left for pickups during the season but available players right now that I like include:
travis hafner
cruz jr
burks
byrd
karim garcia
brian lawrence
ben sheets
ted lilly
johan santana
armas jr
Should I leave it alone or add/drop one of the above guys?

Byrd and Lawrence should be watched closely.

Also watch Burnett and how he does until the start of the season. Your offense looks good, Hernandez, Kendall are very cheap but should provide plenty of punch.

You might want to add some power to your OF, Jose Cruz Jr could be a nice option, without losing too much speed if he has a good year once again.

Sorry, that's Marlon Byrd and not Paul Byrd. Paul was drafted. Thanks for the help.

What I was thinking about doing is dropping Beltre, moving Pujols to 1B/3B and picking up Carlos Lee for power.

Marlon, hmm, still worth watching. Hafner could really provide you with power, more than Lee, but dropping Beltre? I think you can get some value in return in a trade
