Did I have a good draft? WHIR

Postby The Mighty Trow » Mon Mar 19, 2007 1:47 pm

hey fellas, as always if you leave a link i will respond to your posts in kind.

8-team 7x7 (trips, walks; cg, holds)

c- russell martin
1b- lance berkman
2b- josh barfield
3b- miguel cabrera
ss- jose reyes
ci - aramis ramirez
mi - felipe lopez
of- andrew jones (got him in 4th round - not bad for a contract year!)
of- hideki matsui
of- corey patterson (i'm betting on his best year to date)
of- ken griffey jr (he's due for a healthy year. right???)
util - prince fielder
bn- adam laroche (1B)
bn - ian kinsler (2b)

sp - carlos zambrano
sp- ben sheets (health)
rp- chad cordero
rp - francisco cordero
p - barry zito
p - josh beckett
p - rich harden (health)
bn - kerry wood (health - is he starting or closing this year?)
bn - octavio dotel (if he takes off, trade bait?)
bn - dan wheeler (for holds/if lidge goes down)

I'm rather happy with this draft - i feel i am adequate in both power and speed categories, and my pitching, while a health risk, has good upside.

please let me know your honest thoughts - this league is for money, so the better i can make my team, the better my odds of landing in the money. leave a link, and I'll be sure to respond!

Your team is looking alot like mine. Very solid from top to bottom, though I'm not completely sold on Barfield. Then again, its second base so who really cares as long as they are serviceable. Nice power and speed. Andruw was a great pickup. Like me, you have to watch out for health issues. My only suggestion would be to just dump Wood completely. As sick as he once was, he's garbage now. I would pick up Cla Meredith or someone like that for holds. Also, keep an eye on Griffey. He may be my favorite player of all time but he's kind of done. Good luck and thanks for the help

I like your team. Pretty solid throughout. Maybe try to get some better bench players on offense. Not big on Griffey doing anything this year. Other than that ... I like your team a lot.

help me out? ... 78#2104678

I would stick Laroche in your 1B spot, and replace Griffey with Berkman in the OF. LaRoche is going to play every day, and he's hitting in front of Freddy Sanchez and behind Jason Bay.

Very solid . I think Wheeler will help you out with holds and saves. He will take over the closing duties sooner than later. ... p?t=259707
