Sitting at #8..

Postby Sp_Da_Man » Mon Feb 28, 2005 1:51 am

So far here's how are draft is going:

1) A-Rod
2) Pujols
3) Beltran
4) Bonds
5) Vlad

I'm sitting at #8 & here's my question. Do I grab a top bat out there (Tejada, Manny or Abreu)? Or do I grab The Big Unit or Santana if they're available?

I really dislike drafting a pitcher in the first round but either of those two would be tough to pass up. I listed our scoring system below.

Thanks in advance!

Your scoring system, like most points systems, favors big strikeout pitchers. I'd go for Unit or Santana.

Hmmm, probably should have studied the points better. How about Barry Bonds? 1point for a walk.....if you had him in 04 theres 200+ points.

Bonds actually lead the league in points last year & I was hoping some owners would be scared off but he went at #4.

Thanks for the input so far.

At this point, I would take Tejada in any scoring format. I think he is that much better than the rest of the SS now that A-Rod has moved to 3rd.

What if RJ or Santana scored 100 more points than Tejada last yr - would you still take Tejada over them?

Here are total points from 2004..same scoring system.

Manny 675.0
Abreu 744.5
Tejada 667.0

Unit 760.3
Santana 750.0

*This info almost makes me think that The Big Unit might be the guy. With NY he should get some more 10pt wins that he didn't get last season
