I posted a thread to rate 4 of the pitchings staffs in my league.... so I thought it would be interesting to see what people thought of the OF lineups... because there are a few that are close.
This is an 8-team H2H points league, and we start 25 players a week. 5 of them are OF, and one DH. Below are the 3 best OF's and the scoring system.
Bonds, Green, Griffey, Beltran, A. Jones (OF)
Juan Gone/C. Lee (DH... can only start one)
Guerrero, Ordonez, M. Ramirez, Burrell, Suzuki
Giles, Erstad, Williams, S. Stewart, Mondesi
Scoring for Batting Categories
1B - Singles 1
2B - Doubles 2
3B - Triples 4
BB - Walks (Batters) 1
CS - Caught Stealing -1
CYC - Hitting for the Cycle 60
GSHR - Grand Slam Home Runs 10
HR - Home Runs 6
KO - Strikeouts (Batter) -1
R - Runs 2
RBI - Runs Batted In 3
SB - Stolen Bases 2
Even without injury question marks, I'd take Team #2's OF, then #1 then #3......3 is easily the worst.......and it's still pretty darn good! I don't really like Stewart or Mondesi and Erstad and Williams are decent but uninspiring. Team 1 does have a lot of injury doubt; team 2 simply has three of my personal faves: Vlad, Ichiro and Maggs. I would kill to have that OF.......plus Manny and Burrell....and Jones or Winn? Cmon, dude!! Great balance in that OF!!

Thanks guys... actually #2 is my team. The #1 took Griffey in the 5th round!!! Was kind of a shock, but he has won our league in the last 2 years. We both took the strategy of drafting the OF first, but unlike me... he didn't get a solid SP and RP. I ended up with Mussina, Millwood, Morris, Hudson, Weaver, Radke, Lawrence, Armas, Moyer, Foulke, Koch, and Wagner.
I left myself a little thin in the IF... Sweeney/Ibanez at 1B. Castillo/A.Boone(soon to qualify) at 2B. Ramirez/Crede/Huff at 3B. Renteria/Gonzalez(weakest spot) at SS. Kendall/Pierzynski at Catcher.
