i like it... Tex in the 5th was nice and theres some solid pitchers... it might be a little lopsided toward pitching, and could use one or 2 more solid bats, but overall it looks good... i think Anderson, Percival, and Rowand were taken too soon. but Mota, Todd Walker, Buehrle and Bj Ryan were snagged nice and cheap...

The only thing I would do is trade a couple of those starters for some much needed OF help and maybe try to get 1 for sure top 10 closer.

I agree

I had Jason Bay lined up where I took Glaus. I think that would have helped. I agree too loaded on pitching.

Hudson in the 2nd rd was a bad pick.

Blalock in the 4th wasnt wise - the position is too deep to even think about taking a mid level 3B from the 3rd rd to the 7th rd. One of them will be available to you there and there isnt much between the 4th best 3B and 10th best.

I like the GAnderson pick myself - think he will have a nice comback - as a matter of fact I like all of your 8-13th rd picks - good values there.

Walker was a solid buy in the 17th.
Buerhle was nice value in the 18th.

As the others mentioned you did an ok job, but are definitely SP heavy.

BTW - what kind of legue is it? I see you essentially punted SBs, idoes that normally work in your league?

Thanks for the feedback. What makes you think Hudson is too high in the 2nd? I have him as the 3rd overall pitcher (gonna win the Cy Young in Atl).

I agree with you on Anderson. I just can't see him not rebounding, he's been Mr. Consistent (provided his injury is taken care of).

you should try playing roto sometime.

punting catagories is a guaranteed way to make sure you dont finish first in roto.

Hudson doesnt have the k ratio or low enough %s to be a top 3 pitcher. Changing teams doesnt matter. Wins - which is the only real bonus for Hudson going to STL are probably the last pitching cat I look at when picking my SPs.

If it isn't too much trouble, I would love to see a link to the full draft.

Funny you say that

Postby GreenMonsterGoon » Tue Jan 04, 2005 10:31 am

I won 9/12 leagues last year punting SB. I guess the "guarantee" didn't work those times.

I agree on K ratio, but lets not forget he's pretty tough in ERA and WHIP. I can build K's around him. And he's headed to Atlanta, not St. Louis.
