I'm looking for everyone's opinions (and I know they're like a**holes, everyone's got one) on how I should go about my draft this year.
10 team keeper, 2nd year, we keep 5. Cats are normal 5x5 PLUS hits (batters) and walks (pitchers). I won the league last year so I'll be picking last (#10) this year.
My 5 are A-Rod, Soriano, Beltran, Prior and Schilling. Now I know some of you will say "What do you need our help for, look at those 5!" because I've gotten it before. Truth is, yes that's a nice foundation but if I have any hopes of defending my title, I need to build on it.
This is a small list of players who will be available in the first.
Magglio, Abreu, Giles, Berkman, Giambi, Huff, Sexson, Bagwell, Posada, Piazza, Chavez, Renteria, Halladay, Wagner, Foulke, Rivera.
Ideally I'd like to get two from this list. Realistically, I have no shot at Magglio, Halladay, probably Giambi and the closers. My original strat was to take one of the closers and an OF with #10 and #11 but recently the consensus from other owners is that none of the closers will be there at my pick.
With that in mind, I've thought about taking Renteria, moving A-Rod to 3B and drafting a 3B late as a stopgap until A-Rod gets his 3B elig. and then an OF with my first two picks. Thoughts or anything you'd do differently?
Also, I know to be flexible when picking but what should I be looking at for subsequent picks? I'd imagine SP at 3 or 4?
Sorry if this is long and tedious but I really do appreciate all the feedback. The Cafe was my ace in the hole last year and will be again this year when I win again.
