12 team h2h with a big mistake

Postby miamia » Thu Mar 13, 2008 10:00 pm

So in the 4th round my internet went out and I managed to pick up the stud that is....Heath Bell. So take that into consideration :) The league settings are usual 5x5, but add in strikeouts for hitters and holds for pitchers. The Ks are why I picked up Ichiro/Mags at 24/25. I'm not a huge fan of my pick of Salty in the 14th - I could have gotten Molina later, and Towles went totally undrafted. The last few rounds I didn't really have much in mind so I just grabbed all the big name prospects. I figure one is bound to have a great year, and I can drop one or more for some nice middle relievers or a hot SP if i need to. How'd I do?

Guys off the top of my head that are FAs: kotchman, towles, butler, milledge, sherril, beuhrle

C, 1b, 2b, ss, 3b, 3OF, Util, 2SP, 2RP, 3P, 5 bench slots.

1. (1) Álex Rodríguez 3B
2. (24) Magglio Ordóñez OF
3. (25) Ichiro Suzuki OF
4. (48) Heath Bell RP
5. (49) Bobby Abreu OF
6. (72) Miguel Tejada SS
7. (73) Ian Kinsler 2B
8. (96) Adrián González 1B
9. (97) Tim Lincecum SP
10. (120) Daisuke Matsuzaka SP
11. (121) Rich Hill SP
12. (144) Rafael Soriano RP
13. (145) Joakim Soria RP
14. (168) Jarrod Saltalamacchia C,1B
15. (169) Kevin Youkilis 1B,3B
16. (192) Jonathan Broxton RP
17. (193) Evan Longoria 3B

You have some nice hitters but you should try and improve your pitching, try to especially get a strong SP.

The autopick appears to have mixed up Heath Bell with Albert Belle, and 2008 with 1999. :-D

I like the team, alot of upside with the later picks. The pitching is ok imo, with Lincecum, DiceK, and Rich hill all quality #2 and # 3 starters, and I'm sure one of them will emerge as a clear #1 by end of season.

Only problem I see is the team is lacking in power. Besides Arod, Magg, and Gonzalez, there is no consistent power source. Maggs is not even very reliable because he is bound to regress from last season.

I would drop someone like Bruce for Sherrill, because it looks like Sherrill has a lock on the closer job for now.
