Is my team going to run away with it?

Postby DaQ » Fri Mar 09, 2007 2:38 am

10 team, 23 player, 5X5 H2H (non-keeper)

C - Russ Martin
1B - Adam LaRoche
2B - Tadahito Iguchi
3B - Alex Gordon
SS - Jose Reyes
OF - Carl Crawford
OF - Johnny Damon
OF - Josh Willingham
UTL - Travis Hafner
UTL - Lyle Overbay
BN - Mark Teahan
BN - Edwin Encarnaccion (dropped Freddy Sanchez for him)
BN - Troy Tulowitzki

SP - Brandon Webb
SP - Scott Kazmir
SP - Matt Cain
RP - Joe Nathan
RP - Francisco Rodriguez
P - CC Sabathia
P - Takashi Saito
P - Scot Shields
BN - Scott Olsen
BN - Adam Wainwright

-I got some steals late in the draft, such as Overbay (not very popular), Teahan (will get OF eligibility soon) and Saito (dunno how everyone forgot him).
-Tulowitzki is insurance in case Reyes gets hurt
-I drafted Freddy Sanchez, but think Edwin Encarnaccion will be a better fit for my team. There are many servicable 2B FA's available and I don't think Sanchez will do quite as well this year.
-I feel steals, saves, and perhaps runs and WHIP are categories I will win in.
-I usually look for a little more position balance, but saw some players who slipped waaaay too far in the draft. I drafted a catcher, 1B and 2B late.

This link of out draft might work: ... aftresults

Some of the teams know what they're doing, others...not so much. I am the team with the 3rd overall pick (Reyes).

How did you get Reyes, Crawford and Hafner all on the same team? 8-o

Very nice 1-2-3 combination there, and your bullpen is elite. Your starting pitching is also strong. The only potential weakness I see is your infield, as I'm not super-high on Iguchi and relying on a young and unproven Alex Gordon to start at 3B is a risk. Also, LaRoche isn't a particularly strong 1B as a starter, though I suppose Hafner at UTL makes up for that and then some.

Overall, very nice team. You should go far with it.

thats a pretty nasty team, although your power could be lacking, but other than that it is a topnotch team.

i like your team a have the speed category wrapped up...crawford and reyes is a sick combo...i like overbay...huge pick up later on...will not disappoint....however i think your weak spot is 2b...maybe try to upgrade that....pitching staff is nasty as well...i may try to add one more sp to the rotation...but i like the has a huge amount of potential with kazmir and know what you will get from cc and webb....overall dyanamite...encarnacion might be a better option at 3b right now...but i would try to get a better 2b....other than that you may be set

man....i dont think anyone could beat u in steals and BA this year, with u having carl crawford and jose reyes...hafner should kick some...and damon(even if i dont like him) he will do decent this year and maybe look for some fill ins for second...and maybe first...just act quickly at the beginning of the season and look for some potential stars to fill in ur weak spots

To answer the question your subject poses...yes, I think you'll run away with it. Sick speed, great power, good starters, 2 ace closers...great team.
