First draft of the year...Opinions?

Postby suckerpuncher » Thu Mar 01, 2007 7:07 pm

My first draft of the year. Standard 5x5 scoring, 12 teams and H2H.
It was more or less a test draft for the important ones to come in the next weeks.

C - R. Martin(19)
1B - A. Pujols(1), P. Fielder(8)
2B - R. Durham(12)
3B - G. Atkins(3)
SS - B. Hall(7)
OF - M. Holliday(2), A. Dunn(4), P. Burrell(14)
Util - Frank Thomas(16)
SP - J. Smoltz(6), J. Schmidt(10), B. Arroyo(11), A.J. Burnett(13), D. Lowe(15), S. Olsen(17), I. Snell(18), A. Sánchez(20)
RP - B.J. Ryan(5), B. Lidge(9), S. Torres(21)

I know i have almost no speed but i wanted to punt SB anyway.
What do you think?

As I look at that lineup Im thinking "what an ungodly line...huh?...Dunn?..." Trade him for anything even remotely useful.

Dunn will single handedly destroy your batting average. You will lose batting average in H2H every time. You cannot compensate for a 240 BA. A lineup full of 280-320 hitters will compensate for 1-2 260ish hitters like Burrell, but not a 240 hitter. Dunn will drag you to the gutter every week.

TRADE HIM. Or bench him if you got a bench and pick up the best available OF off the wire.

He even destroyed my league which I ran for 2yrs. A big arguement started when I benched him (cus of his horrid avg) and was accused of purposely tanking.
I love mock drafts.
