Postby Yoda » Tue Mar 04, 2008 1:24 pm

12 team, 5x5, Yahoo Winners League:

1. (3) David Wright 3B
2. (22) B.J. Upton 2B,OF
3. (27) Mark Teixeira 1B
4. (46) Corey Hart OF
5. (51) Nick Markakis OF
6. (70) Justin Verlander SP
7. (75) Ian Kinsler 2B
8. (94) Adrián González 1B
9. (99) Tim Lincecum SP
10. (118) Rickie Weeks 2B
11. (123) Manny Corpas RP
12. (142) Joakim Soria RP
13. (147) Chad Billingsley SP,RP
14. (166) Josh Hamilton OF
15. (171) Clay Buchholz SP
16. (190) Geovany Soto C
17. (195) Brian Wilson RP
18. (214) Kerry Wood RP
19. (219) Adam Jones OF
20. (238) Mark Reynolds 3B
21. (243) Asdrubal Cabrera 2B,SS

OF-BJ Upton
U-Adrian Gonzalez
B-Hamilton, Weeks, Adam Jones, Reynolds

Glaring weakness at SS so I'll probably end up trading one of Upton, Kinsler, Weeks.

I have Verlander pegged as the sleeper CY winner this year. Lincecum/Billingsley both pitch in a pretty good ball park and I love their upside. Buccholz has a bright future as well. Pitching lacks depth right now but I figured I can scavenge the waivers once the season starts.

Your first six picks are very nice. IN fact the only thing I quesiton in your draft is the 2B pileup, Upton can play OF, then Kinsler, so why Weeks? But uf you think you can flip one of the 2B for a better SS, it should be OK. I love Soto, and some of your later round picks have high potential.

I like you overall team but it does seem you grabbed too many 2B (deep position) even though they all have the potential to reach the next level. I really like Upton but IMO his value to your team decreases by playing him in the OF. You have plenty of speed and do have a hole at SS. I love the overall mixture of power/avg/runs. I think you would have been better off going for an established pitcher in RD 8 although you do have a nice albeit small group of young arms. I won't comment on picking any pitchers up in free agency because I know that you know your way around the young prospects in the system.
