1st ever baseball draft

Postby grifoman » Thu Mar 15, 2007 12:02 am

Hello all

I have been more of a fantasy football player in the past. I thought I would try baseball this year. I am in a Yahoo H2H 12 teamer 5X5

I think my draft went pretty well. Here is my team. I picked 9th

Yahoo 5X5 12 teamer

Mike Piazza C R13 NO 153
Adam LaRoche 1B R12 NO 136
Chase Utley 2B R1 NO 9
Edwin Encarnacion 3B R17 NO 201
Hanley Ramirez 3B R4 NO 40
Manny Ramirez OF R2 NO 15
Matt Holiday OF R3 NO 33
Rocco Baldelli OF R11 NO 129
Frank Thomas Util R14 NO 160
Chris B Young BN R19 NO 225

Aaron Harang SP R7 NO 81
Scott Kazmir SP R8 NO 88
Francisco Rodriguez RP R5 NO 57
Billy Wagner RP R6 NO 64
Jared Weaver P R9 NO 105
Chris young P R10 NO 112
Derek Lowe P R16 NO 184
Armando Benitez BN R15 NO 177
Kenny Rogers BN R18 NO 208
Jason Jennings BN R20 NO 232
Tim Lincecum BN R21 NO 249

I know that my corner in fielders are a little weak. 1b was a position I wanted to take a little earlier, but people kept taking them too early for where I valued them. 1 team has Delgato on the bench because of too many 1b. I am thinking of trying to trade one of my pitchers for him. I have also offered young for Alex Gordon in hopes either him or Encarnacion break out this year. The person who has Gordon has Arod in front of him, but horrible OF. I like my Pitching middle IF C and OF.

Do you think LaRoche will duplicate last year. I am scared that last year was a fluke.

My thinking on pitching is go with a lot of low era guys that wont hurt anything, and pitch a lot of them. maybe this is flawed.

Some of the things I was thinking was take Rogers for his fast start and try and package him after a month or so before his blow up.

Any input would be appreciated. I can review others, but I am not sure anyone wants advice from a rookie :)
