My first H2H'd I do?

Postby The Loveable Losers » Fri May 20, 2005 12:22 pm

12 team 5x5 h2h midseason yahoo league

C M. Barrett (ChC - C)
1B D. Lee (ChC - 1B)
2B C. Utley (Phi - 1B,2B)
3B M. Mora (Bal - 3B)
SS M. Young (Tex - SS)
OF C. Patterson (ChC - OF)
OF P. Feliz (SF - 1B,3B,SS,OF)
OF J. Burnitz (ChC - OF)
Util H. Blalock (Tex - 3B)
BN D. Roberts (SD - OF)
BN R. Freel (Cin - 2B,3B,OF)

SP Jo. Santana (Min - SP)
SP J. Peavy (SD - SP)
RP M. Batista (Tor - SP,RP)
RP B. LyonDL (Ari - RP)
P T. Walker (SF - RP)
P A. Bernero (Atl - RP)
P D. Cabrera (Bal - SP)
BN B. Arroyo (Bos - SP)
BN W. Miller (Bos - SP)
BN A. Harang (Cin - SP)

I went into this draft planning to draft hitting early but just couldn't pass up Santana at the 10th pick and Peavy at the beginning of round 4. Had a VERY frustrating guy was taken right before my pick on several occasions (even in round 21!). Iguchi was going to be my every day 2nd baseman since Utley may or may not play but I had to settle for Freel backing up Utley and hope that one of the two gets to play every day.

I like my offense and having Mora and Blalock both gives me a lot of options to trade and even if I don't trade Blalock makes one heck of a Util hitter. I have several guys that can steal a base here and there (which is something I've heard helps in h2h when sb's in bunches don't necessarily do as much for you). I've also got two speedsters on the bench that I can sub in if I need to make up some sb's on a tight week. My SP is very good at the top and has decent depth with Santana, Peavy, Cabrera, Arroyo, Miller and Harang. I also have the *potential* for 4 closers but I picked them up at a huge bargain (especially Bernero in round 21).

So anyone have any thoughts...I'm thinking of packaging Blalock and Barrett for a good Util guy of any position and a better catcher. Basically gain value since 3B is a hard position to fill.

Anyone have any other suggestions?
