I just got done with my warm up Yahoo 12 team 5x5 draft

Postby RockChalk09 » Sun Mar 25, 2007 9:08 pm

I was doing a public league draft to get ready for the real thing tonight (my keeper league is drafting tonight). I broke a few big rules (namely taking pitching early and often), and picked out investments a bit early. Here are the results:

Picking 10th:

RD1: C. Crawford
RD2: M. Ramirez
RD3: R. Oswalt
RD4: C. Zambrano
RD5: BJ Ryan
RD6: B. Wagner
RD7: J. Thome
RD8: B. Myers
RD9: H. Kendrick
RD10: J. Giambi
RD11: R. Hill
RD12: A. Gordon
RD13: N. Markakis
RD14: M. Barrett
RD15: T. Saito
RD16: J. Cantu
RD17: J. Peralta
RD18: A. Sanchez
RD19: C. Jackson
RD20: I. Snell
RD21: K. Youkilis

C: M. Barrett
1B: J. Giambi
2B: H. Kendrick
3B: A. Gordon
SS: J. Peralta
OF: C. Crawford
OF: M. Ramirez
OF: N. Markakis
Util: J. Thome
BN: C. Jackson
BN: J. Cantu
BN: K. Youkilis

SP: R. Oswalt
SP: C. Zambrano
RP: BJ Ryan
RP: B. Wagner
P: T. Saito
BN: B. Myers
BN: R. Hill
BN: A. Sanchez
BN: I. Snell

I know, I know, WAY too much pitching and too early --but I learned a few lessons here and hope to apply them to our keeper league draft. I'm going to look at the projections and where my gaping holes are, and then look into trades. Any thing jump out at you? Potential waiver pick ups?
I appreciate any and all suggestions on my roster.

Well, you've got two solid closers so you can trade for some power. The concern that I see off the bat is Zambrano. He's a killer. You're in a 5x5 so it might not be to bad and it might actually help, but I had him last year and while he's good for a ton of innings (CG) and Ks, the guy gives up base runners and runs like crazy as well. I might try and move him as well.

Care to help with my team?

Really? I take the stance that he's in for a better year --he's in a contract year and getting closer to the prime of his career. I can live with 3.50 era & 1.3 whip if it means 200K & 16ish wins.
I appreciate any and all suggestions on my roster.

Yeah, I mean he'll get you that but I don't know if I'd say he's getting ready for the prime of his career. He's a good pitcher, don't get me wrong, and I like him because he'll go and throw 150 pitches if he needs to, but I think he'll take a down turn rather then an upturn from last year.
