Postby phorts » Tue Mar 22, 2011 6:48 pm

Drafted Sunday. 12 Team H2H Standard 5x5 Daily
2 Keepers (1 Pitcher 1 Offense)

C: B. McCann
1B: M. Cabrera (Keeper - 2nd Rd)
2B: (blank)
SS: I. Desmond
3B: P. Alverez
OF: M. Kemp
OF: C. Rasmus
OF: A. Lind
Util: C. Quentin

(I run the league and keep the pitching Spots tight and the move limit / week set to 2 to prevent streaming as well as hoarding of closers with only 3 potential RP Spots)

SP: C. Kershaw
SP: F. Liriano (Keeper - 15th Rd)
SP: Y. Gallardo
RP: M. Thornton
RP: C. Perez
P: D. Storen

BN: T. Hanson
BN: G. Gonzales
BN: B. Matusz
BN: R. Nolasco
BN: B. League

Draft Scenario: Went in totally on board with drafting one more stud early (grabbed Kershaw in Rd 3) and then going all out on offense with a focus on Power/Speed (Kemp was the cornerstone of that when i took him in the 1st over Wright/Arod - ALL of the top 10 OF's were kept except for Kemp). But when i saw all this SP talent coming at me in the 4th, 5th rds i couldnt resist snaking Gallardo 4th and Hanson 5th..and then McCann in the 6th...aye aye aye...

So i loaded up on SP, grabbing value Offense where I could and obviously need to make some moves (for starters, i could use a 2B).

Notable WW: (I have 4th WW Priority)

1B: G. Sanchez
2B: A Hill, H Kendrick, Espinosa, Wiggington
SS: S Castro
OF: D. Span, D Fowler
SP: Ian Kennedy, J. DLR, E Jackson, J Cueto, A Sanchez, B Duensing
RP: Rauch, Fuentes, Madson, bunch of setup men

Given that i've scooped a lot of SP's/RP's my leaguemates are hitting me up for trades. so i have plenty of suitors.

Million dollar question: Who should i Deal and what upgrades should I target? (Negotiations have begun for Krispie, Stubbs, Gardner and Elvis Andrus, Pedroia, Raburn etc)

Thanks for your thoughtful insight! WHIR Please leave a link!

I would have to say that your pitching doesn't need any work. You have a lot of depth there, I wish I had a #4 starter like Tommy Hanson. The only department that I would work on is your speed. You mentioned that you were involved in talks with Brett Gardner. I would jump all over this. I really think Gardner is going to wind up being top 20 fantasy player by the end of the year. It's pretty much been decided that he is going to lead-off for the Yanks, not Jeter. If he can stay atop that lineup, and have the .383 OBP he had last year, I would put him down for 115+ runs and 50 sb. I would see if you can maybe pull a Gio and Rasmus for Gardner. I would definitely target him though.
Thanks for the help with mine

I like the idea of getting Gardner but would rather go a Quentin/Nolasco for him route as Quentin hasn't been healthy the last few years and his upside is the same as Lind and I see Lind rebounding to a .275 30hr year.

pitching is great the only flaw is RP with pitchers who aren't quite established in closer roles yet, and Nolasco will hurt in ERA/WHIP.

on WW I would go Hill at 2B viewed as a .275 27hr hitter.
