help me with my minor league team

Postby Mugrila » Sat Jul 31, 2004 11:39 pm

in our keeper league (this is the first season) we have 5 minor league player. my current mlb team is:
c-lopez
1st-teixeira, hafner
2nd-vidro, m.giles,
3rd-blalock,
ss-m.young,
lf-burrell,
cf-pods, p.wilson, hunter
rf-guillen,
sp-hudson, mulder, schilling, garcia, clement, contreras, sabathia
rp-gagne, hoffman

my minor league team is: Morneau, Upton, Mathis, Hamels, and Blanton.

i don't plan on calling up morneau or upton so i can keep them as well as 5 players from my major league team. i'm wondering if there are any better prospects other than mathis, hamels, or blanton that would be worth picking up. here are the other teams:

team1-edwin jackson
- brandon clausen
- dallas mcpherson
- denny bautista
- scott hairston
team2-jeremy reed
- alex rios
- chase utley
- wilson valdez
team3-angel guzman
- greg miller
- andy marte
- ervin santana
- danny haren
team4- prince fielder
- josh barfield
- delmon young
- gavin floyd
- bobby jenks
team5- rickie weeks
- chin-hui tsao
- casey kotchman
- tony gwynn, jr.
- kyle davies
team6- grady sizemore
- jeremy guthrie
- chad tracey
- adrian gonzalez
team7-scott kazmir
- jj hardy
- rafael soriano
- david wright
team8-adam wainwright
- felix pie
- jeffrey allison
- blake hawksworth
- john van benschoten


one team wasn't able to draft so there are 9 of 10 teams. how did i do in teh draft (held in early april) and should i drop hamels, mathis or blanton for another prospect that will make an impact next season?

Hamels and Mathis I would both keep. The player I would drop is Blanton. Some players I would drop him for....
Felix Hernandez here's some more info about him http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... hp?t=74776
Your OF looks like your weak point. Some good OF are Jeremy Hermida of the Marlins and Jeff Francouer of the Braves.
By the way here is a link to a thread with BA's midseason top 25. http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... hp?t=79661

thanks for the advice, like i said before this is my first year so i'm not exactly an expert. would it be better to get an OF prospect or get a pitching prospect and draft OF early next year?

In most Minor League drafts people tend to draft hitters over pitchers as they're more likely to pan out because of less chance on injury. But if Felix Hernandez is available I'd have to take him. His potential is unlimited.

I'd drop Blanton for Ryan Howard. I think you can compare him to Richie Sexon. Obviously he is stuck behind Thome but he will most likely be traded in the off-season to a team who will call him up.

The thing to remember about Howard is that he's 24 or 25. And while his numbers are very impressive. Being 24 in AA isn't exactly being young for the league.

Billy Butler 3B-KC

1st rnd pick this year in rookie ball looks like he is a real player, though a couple years away

Clint Barmes SS-COL

Will be called up later this year and should be the everyday guy next year. Playing in Coors is a plus
