NL-only league HELP!

Postby colour wolf » Thu Feb 12, 2004 11:34 pm

Well, this has just been a great offseason for the National League. After losing 7 potential first to third round picks (Sheffield, Schilling, Vlad, J. Lopez, I. Rodriquez, Vasquez, Brown) and getting back two really old pitchers, a couple of decent catchers, and a center fielder who can't hit, I'm wondering what the first round is going to look like this year. What do you think of my preliminary draft order.

1. Pujois
2. Helton
3. Prior
4. Bonds
5. Sosa
6. Schmidt
7. Gagne
8. Thome
9. Renteria
10. Rolen

Man, that is not a pretty list. Any suggestions?

I agree. Last year we were sitting pretty in the NL only league's with all the free agents that moved to the NL. This year we are hurting, and it sure does change your keeper picks, if you are in a keeper league(not as many top players out there)

First change I'd make is to take Pujols not Pujois as the first pick. Sorry, I just hate it when his name is written incorrectly....I have OCD so give me a break ok? ;-D

I don't like taking a closer in the first round so Gagne is a mistake. IMO.

Other than that I prefer auction leagues to snake drafts so I'm not the guy to ask the order on. But I think Sosa and Bonds are a couple of picks high and Wood should maybe crack the top 10 with those 250 K's ;-D
