Just finished 16 team Draft, your thoughts please...

Postby BB1017 » Sat Feb 26, 2005 4:18 pm

H2H, 16 teams, 5x5 (5 Keepers) i'll indicate what round just as info for others.

I finished 2nd last year without any big name bats so my keepers we're mostly pitchers. I traded Clemens (My 5th keeper) during the draft for Pettite and Mora.

I decided to draft some youngsters hoping I would land a future keeper....

I went after 20/20 kind of guys. I believe I have

I like my pitching staff but I realize that I have some concerns with staying healthy.

C - Lopez (Keeper) (20+hr)
1B - Bagwell (20 + hr)
2B - Burke (20+sb)
2B - Infante (20/20 potential)
SS - Barmes (not sure what to expect) hoping for (15/15 potential)
3B - Mora (20+hr)
3B - McPherson (20+hr)
OF - Hunter (20/20)
OF - Hidalgo (20+hr)
OF - Cameron (20/20)
OF - Swisher (20+hr)
OF - Patterson (20/20)

SP - Peavy (Keeper)
SP - Wood (Keeper)
SP - Pettite
SP - Brown
SP - Lowe
SP - Lilly
SP - Francis
RP - Wagner (Keeper)
RP - Takatsu

Thanks for the feedback!

That's a really good team for a 16-teamer, especially when you need two 2B and two 3B :-o

Bagwell might get you 20HR, but not much else, I fear.
Burke, Infante & Barmes are all uncertain as to how they'll produce, but they do have potential.

Not bad at OF, and if Cameron is traded, his value could go up in a different ballpark (no idea what's happening with him - so many rumours!)

You recognise the question marks with health, but again your pitchers are better than average for a 16-teamer.

Of everything, I'd look for SS sleepers. Do you have a bench to put anyone on? If so, see if Upton (unlikely), Greene (also unlikely) or Bartlett (possible) are available.

Please check out my team in a 20-teamer:

Yeah, for 16 teams, you look solid. Your OF has some holes (Cameron's injury/trade demands), but if you can win with your no-big bats philosophy, go for it. I like Infante, but i don't know if we'll ever see that 20-20 potential. You definetly need another Closer.

Thats interesting...I thought I was set at Closer?? Wags in great shape and Takatsu should get 30. I'd say both are ranked in the top 10. maybe you think I need 3 top 10 closers??

Why don't Infante get any respect?

16 HR's
13 SB's

He had great #'s in winter ball. I'd say 20/20 is within reach for the 24 year old.

For a 16-team league, to have two good closers like that is fine. You may want to try and grab an emerging closer during the season, but I don't think you need to worry too much at this stage.
