Championship bound already?! WHIR for sure!

Postby jcde7ago » Wed Apr 11, 2007 4:21 pm

12 Team Yahoo H2H league. Unbelieveable at first, but when you take into account 4 of the 12 missed the live draft, it makes a lot more sense. Quite possibly the most balanced team i have ever drafted.

Do i have any holes? Any input would be appreciated. For those interested in looking at how the draft results came about, check out these links (iam "Jonny D's Team"). Also note the questionable dumb picks were taken by the autodrafters that never made it...always important to make it on draft day folks ;-D

C - Paul Lo Duca
1B - Carlos Delgado
2B - Howie Kendrick
3B - Miguel Cabrera
SS - Khalil Greene (getting Julio Lugo to replace Greene in a trade)
OF - Vladimir Guerrero
OF - Bobby Abreu
OF - Vernon Wells
Util - Gary Sheffield
BN - Barry Bonds
BN - B.J. Upton (my main source of steals - 40+ steals a possbility)

SP - Josh Beckett
SP - John Lackey (traded, for Julio Lugo/Hamels)
SP - Bronson Arroyo
SP - Dontrelle Willis
SP - A.J. Burnett
SP - Tim Hudson
RP - Jason Isringhausen
RP - Brian Fuentes
RP - David Weathers
RP - Dan Wheeler

Moves made since draft:

Pending trade of Khalil Greene/Lackey for Julio Lugo/Cole Hamels. Barring injuries and absolute horrible seasons from all players, i think this team has a straight shot at Championships from the get go.

Again, any input is appreciated...i will respond to yours!

oh man, your offense is truly sickening. Obviously, you lack a true number 1 sp, but I believe your staff is adequate enough to keep you a float- lets just hope burnett stays healthy. Your closers are nothing special, but okay for a 12 team league.

If Upton and Kendrick both continue to live up to the hype, I would trade Kendrick for another SP...
C: Barrett
1b: Teixeira
2b: Upton
SS: Rollins
3b: Braun
OF: Soriano, Lee, Rios
Util: Holliday
BN: Atkins, Hart, A. Jones

SP: Santana, Halladay
RP: Putz, Papelbon
P: Lincecum, Ol. Perez, Bush
BN: Gallardo, Sheets(DL), P. Martinez(DL)

Some hilarious picks in there, looks like a couple guys went for pitching waayy too early. Matsuzaka in the 3rd, Jered Weaver in the 6th

Braves homer with McCann and Frenchie with the 1st/2nd sandwhich pick. Cardinals homer with Rolen, Edmonds, Grudzielanek (!) in the 2nd/3rd/4th. My goodness he even took John freakin' Mabry in the 6th

Solid team. I would consider trading one of your OFs for a SB guru or a top flight SP. As you mentioned, Upton is your only source of steals (although Kendrick will swipe 20 or so) and he's on your bench.... So you need a base swiper worthy of starting (think Crawford - you've got the guys to trade for him).
