We just had our draft last night in a 10-team Yahoo! roto league. It's an extremely competitive league where each team was able to have 4 keepers (2 hitters and 2 pitchers).
Here's who I ended up with in the draft along with where my keepers were:
Round 1: Grady Sizemore, OF (Love this guy. I was afraid he was gonna be gone)
Round 2: Jimmy Rollins, SS (Keeper)
Round 3: Brian Roberts, 2B (I was eyeing Markakis here but he was taken two picks earlier)
Round 4: Joe Mauer, C (I was afraid the catcher run would start so I grabbed Mauer semi-early after Martinez was taken)
Round 5: Ryan Zimmerman, 3B (I'm banking this kid will bounce back in a new ballpark....plus he's only 24)
Round 6: Francisco Rodriguez, RP (Top tier closer)
Round 7: Jeff Francoeur, OF (I like him as my 2nd OF)
Round 8: John Smoltz, SP (Keeper)
Round 9: Dan Haren, SP (Keeper)
Round 10: Matt Cain, SP (I liked him going into the draft but when I made the pick a few people scoffed)
Round 11: Matt Kemp, OF (Hopefully the hype pans out)
Round 12: Rafael Soriano, RP (Got a nearly top tier closer in the middle rounds)
Round 13: A.J. Burnett, SP (If he can stay healthy, he should be a good #3)
Round 14: Jeremy Hermida, OF (I saw him still sitting there and he was in my Top 25 avail for OF so I grabbed him)
Round 15: Tony Pena, RP (Should get a lot of oppurtunities with all those W's that ARZ will get)
Round 16: James Loney, 1B (This pick was praised as a "great pick" by many in the league)
Round 17: Bronson Arroyo, SP (Loved getting him so late)
Round 18: Cameron Maybin, OF (I honestly forgot Longoria was still on the board and took Maybin thinking he would be the man in FLA)
Round 19: Raul Ibanez, OF (I hate Ibanez but I saw 20+ HR and 100+ RBI available in the 19th Round and took him)
Round 20: Mark Prior, SP (Made this pick as a late round flier)
Round 21: Justin Morneau, 1B (Keeper)
For some reason I'm not sold on my team, but at the same time I feel like I got nothing worse than some second tier players at all of my positions.
Let me know what you guys think I need........
*With Help In Return* of course......
