Hmmm, catchers and OF. I was planning on taking Kendall, but he was taken a few picks before I was planning on taking him (damn you MMoney). After that, there ain't much. 9 catchers have been taken (including Closser) so the best available is someone like Lo Duca. I suppose I'll wait on that becuase no one left is anything special.

As for OF, there are still some decent one's left. David Roberts was just taken which was who I was planning on taking. I need steals badly. I have a couple steal specialists (Freel, Sanchez) in mind, but I don't know if it's too early to take them.

For my next 2 picks, I'm probably going to take another pitcher (either SP or RP) and an OF'er.


And yes, my team are all senior citizens, but I'll whoop all your asses this year. And then I'll build my expansion team in a few years :-D

I just took Randy Winn in the 15th round. He was the best OF available IMO, and he gives me steals that I need badly. I was going to take Greg Maddux, Joel Pineiro, or Richard Hidalgo, but they were all taken before my pick. Was that a good pick?

And for my next pick, I'm thinking about taking a 3rd closer. The best available are Affeldt, Aquino, Mike Adams, Wickman, and Justin Speier. As you can see, slim pickings. But I feel I need one last closer. Would they be too early to take (16th round)? And how would you rank those 5 closers? Thanks.

Partly depends on the scoring. I don't tend to draft more than 2 closers in H2H, as two good ones will allow you to compete, and there are always changes throughout the season, if you pay attention to the waiver wire.

But if you really want a 3rd closer, I wouldn't expect Affeldt or Aquino to be around much longer - in my 12-team keeper, they've both just been drafted in round 16.
