First H2H draft this season...

Postby mj85 » Sun Mar 02, 2008 1:06 am

10 team 5X5 H2H. what do you think?

C - Soto
1b - Ad LaRoche
2b - Upton
3b - M Cabrera
ss - Tulowitzki
1b/3b - Kouzmanoff
2b/ss - K Johnson
of - Soriano
of - Pence
of - Dunn
of - Bay
of - Duncan
ut - Hafner
bn - J Upton

p - Harang
p - Felix
p - Kazmir
p - Billingsly
p - Gallardo
p - Capps
p - Soria
p - B Wilson
p - Gagne
bn - Ol Perez
bn - Sherrill

I'm not great on speed, but I think I got a decent mix of speed/power for a H2H league. Didn't take a pitcher until the 7th round and still ended up with a solid staff (although the health question marks are there). Only position I am not satisfied with is 1B but the top guys went off the board early and there really wasn't much left. I'm very satisfied with my OF and RP (since I didn't take any closers until round 14). I have some depth to deal if someone is desperate. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Not the best team I've had by any means, but it should be solid.

Wow - I can't believe Harang, Felix, and Kazmir lasted that long. Good pickups. Your closers are all fairly volatile, so you'll have to watch the news closely and play the closer carousel. I would have drafted a solid lower-middle tier catcher like Ramon Hernandez to back up Soto in case he sucks, which is not out of the realm of possibility. Other than that, good job.

Your outfield is solid, and you never know what Justin Upton can do this season. Infield is solid. I am not too sure about 1b (which you mentioned), and also Kouzmanoff. I think Kelly Johnson should be pretty decent this season.

For starting pitching, as you said, there are some question marks. Soria and Capps should be fine closers, but the other two might be a bit shaky.

I think you got a decent team. Just be active every week, and good luck!
