Who to draft??

Postby fantasybaseballking » Wed Mar 30, 2011 6:26 pm

So I'm in a 15-team dynasty league with 25-man Major League rosters and 15-man minor league rosters. Two caveats exist:

1. Players don't really need to be minor leaguers. We simply must either sign them with less than 3 years experience in the bigs or pass waivers.

2. If a player hasn't reached AA yet, he is exempt from our 40 man rosters.

****Updated farm as follows:

C: Tyler Flowers

2B: Brett Lawrie

SS: Sean Rodrirugez

3B: Mat Gamel

OF: Ryan Kalish, Kyle Blanks, George Springer, Josh Sale

SP: Randall Delgado, Travis Wood, Jhoulys Chacin, Mark Rogers

RP: Chris Sale, Jake McGee, Jeremy Jeffress, Daniel Schlereth

I went ahead and signed Randall Delgado and Josh Sale. So now down to 1 prospect to sign:

Danny Duffy

Zach Lee

Stetson Allie

Matt Harvey

Michael Choice

AJ Cole

Jerry Sands

Taylor Jungmann

Dylan Bundy

Jackie Bradley Jr

Daniel Norris

Blake Swihart

The most important thing (other than talent and likelihood of success) is that anybody who hasn't reached AA will NOT count on my 40-man roster, thus allowing me to sign a FA such as Dayan Viciedo, Daniel Murphy (Mets), Lucas Duda, Wilson Ramos, Lars Anderson, Brandon McCarthy, or Brad Lincoln.

So my point--- while I LOVE Duffy, it means Duffy only. Lee, or another sub-AA guy means Lee (or other guy) PLUS one of the above free agents.

Is it worth it, or is Duffy that good?

Duffy's four pitch selection is nice, but he sits at 90 (touches 93). I understand that's good for a lefty, but I'd like a little more speed from the youngster, especially considering none of his secondary pitches rate out as above average.

Therefore, I actually like Zach Lee slightly more than Duffy. Lee can hit 97 and already has a plus slider. His change stinks, but that's why he is lo-a. I also think that Stetson Allie, who can hit 100, but doesn't have a third pitch, is fairly comparable to Duffy. He has future closer written all over him. If you get the upside of a second guy, I would take either Lee or Allie over Duffy.
