Draft help .. who do I take?

Postby Shadowmaster28 » Fri Jan 28, 2005 2:00 pm

Here are the scoring rules for my league .. it is an 8 team league that drafts from the NL mainly but can take up to 5 AL'ers!

Scoring -
Single = 1 pt.
Double = 2 pts.
Triple = 3 pts.
HR = 4 pts.
RBI = 1 pt.
Run Scored = 1 pt.
Stolen Base = 1 pt.
Walk = 1 pt. (The old saying: "A walk is just as good as a hit,")
Starting Win, Relief Win, or Save = 10 pts.
Complete Game Win = 15 total pts.
No-Hitter Win = 25 total pts.
Perfect Game Win = 35 total pts.
If a Pitcher Wins or gets the Save, he scores (IP - ER) x2; if he does not Win or get a Save, he scores (IP - ER) x3. Innings are always rounded down.
A Pitcher cannot score negative points.

We have so far drafted ten rounds and here are my players:
SP - C. Schilling, J. Santana, J. Schmidt, G. Maddux
RP - T. Hoffman
C - J. Lopez
1B - D. Ortiz
SS - C. Izturis
3B - E. Chavez, T. Glaus
OF - J. Edmonds, J. Pierre

Next two positions I am drafting will be 2B and OF... think I know who ... 2B - Luis Castillo or Ray Durham and either Moises Alou, Steve Finley, Shawn Green or Larry Walker ... what does everyone think? B-)

what position should I draft for next? Any help would be appreciated!


Perhaps draft a speedster, to get you some SB's/3B's, But it looks like you hit the jackpot with 3 VERY good pitchers, I would say 3 out of the top 7

Nice looking team. I would grab some speed and not get another pitcher till you fill some offensive spots.

Great start as everyone has said. I would however target a high saves person. a save is valued the same as a win for you. Gagne would be a stud in this format. Isringhausen also might still be available.

Get Lidge. I think that he is right up there with Gagne and he is much better than Izzy. ;-D

Another good plan gone to heck .. another owner got Lidge ... now I need to think about Hoffman or Benetiez ... who do you think? I want to go with Hoffman becasue I don't think Benetiez will do what he did last year even though he is in San Fran this season. Nay help would be appreciated! ASAP!
