1st Draft of '06...Please critique my squad...Thanks!

Postby nmeurer80 » Sun Mar 05, 2006 11:27 pm

This is a 10 Team, Head 2 Head, 7x7 Yahoo league. I had the 2nd spot in the draft. The extra stat catergories are Doubles and Triples (Offense) & Walks and Holds (Pitching). I played in a league with holds last season and really grew to love playing with that stat. It brings relievers other than closers into play and makes fantasy baseball more well rounded. Anyway, here are my draft results. Leave a link to your draft and I will leave comments fo you as well. Thanks,

C - Jason Varitek
1B - Albert Pujols
2B - Chone Figgins (3B, OF eligibilty as well)
3B - Hank Blalock
SS - Derek Jeter
LF - Pat Burrell
CF - Carlos Beltran
RF - Jeff Francouer
Util - Justin Morneau (1B)
BN - Jim Edmonds (CF)
BN - Mark Loretta (2B)
BN - Jeremy Hermida (RF)
BN - Bill Hall (2B, 3B, SS)

SP - Carlos Zambrano
SP - Brett Myers
SP - Dan Haren
SP - Aaron Harang
SP - Anthony Reyes
RP - Justin Duchscherer
RP - Chad Qualls
RP - Dustin Hermanson
CL - Bob Wickman
CL- Trever Hoffman
CL - Ryan Dempster
CL - Jose Valverde

I went fairly offense heavy in this draft. My only real concern is my Starting Pitching (I would have liked to have one more "Ace"). I also hope the Cardinals give Anthony Reyes the 5th spot in the rotation, otherwise he is a wasted draft pick. I feel I should do alright in saves and holds. Speed is another concern if Beltran doesn't run this year either. Please leave your thoughts and comments. Thanks!

I agree that it would be a good idea to strengthen your starting pitching. But I disgree about speed. Even if Beltran doesn't get many (I think he will), Figgy and Jeter and Hermida make you plenty competitive unless you go up against someone who stacked some combo of Reyes, Pierre, Freel, Podsednik or Crawford. And if they did, let them beat you in steals while you win the other categories.
