Postby TML49 » Sun Feb 20, 2005 5:03 pm

I just finished my annual draft and I think my team is pretty good. 1st place gets $800, 2nd gets $250, 3rd gets $150. I'd like any advice on where the weaknesses in my team are. 5x5 12-team mixed league Roto draft, 25 rounds. I had the 10th pick...the round i took the guy is in brackets.

1B Jim Thome (3)
2B Brian Roberts (10)
SS Rafael Furcal (8)
3B Aramis Ramirez (5)
C Ramon Hernandez (20)
OF Barry Bonds (1)
OF Bobby Abreu (2)
OF Vernon Wells (11)
OF Torii Hunter (14)
OF Luis Gonzalez (16)
2B/SS Angel Berroa (18)
1B/3B Brad Wilkerson (12)
UTIL Raul Mondesi (21)

No obvious weaknesses at first glance. You did well to get Abreu in round 2!

I'm not that high on Berroa or Mondesi this year, there may be better options available in free agency.
Good, solid pitching staff in your first 5 pitchers drafted, and Bonderman is a good sleeper pick at 17.
Not sure Tsao is worth keeping on your roster - he might be the one to drop when you need a replacement pitcher, or someone unexpected starts doing well.

On the whole, good draft ;-D

I agree with you on Tsao........but he was the last closer left so I had to take him because I like to have 4 closers. I'll probalby drop him once there's an established closer in Chicago or Toronto. As for Mondesi and Berroa, I wouldn't want to have them as a starting OF or SS, but they are good as utility players. Berroa is only one year removed from ROY and Mondesi has 25-25 potential when healthy. I'm hoping Lane breaks out so I can move him into the lineup over Mondesi.

looks real solid on the hitters.. though ur pitching probably b a bit better... not real high on hudson (dont no y), but he will probably have a good offense behind him.. good work!!
