1. What was your draft strategy?
Beat oscar. I planned to do so by picking the 10th spot in the draft, figuring I would take 2 of Pedroia, Upton, Elsbury, Longo, Cargo, and Fielder. When it came around I figured I wanted to fill at least one scarce position, so I figured on taking Pedroia first, then whoever came back. I guess I'm ok with a Longo/Pedo combo, but I really have a feeling come October I'll be regretting not taking Cargo. After that I didn't really plan to fill SS so early but it just worked out that way. Nobody seemed to want pitching early, so I was pretty happy to get Weaver and Felix to anchor my rotation. 2. Who do you think was the steal of the draft?
Why did we let Pujols slip to 6th? Other drafts are laughing at us. There were several good values in the later rounds.3. Who do you think was the reach of the draft?
Mike Stanton over Cargo, Kinsler, Tex and the 3 aces was an eye-opener. Carlos Santana went quite a bit early for a one-catcher league. But as Corey Hart would say, never surrender an opportunity to bash an oscar pick. Dexter Fowler in the 12th round? His ADP is the 20th round. I think in my other league that has drafted, he went undrafted. At the time he was taken I think I counted 20 or so available outfielders I would have taken above him. Well let's see, here's 20:
4. Who do you think will finish in the top 3?
- Code: Select all
I always think I'm gonna win.
I certainly like this year's team better than last year's abomination. That Brit's got a pretty good looking group again. I'm not sure what to make of Oop's team, it's like what happens when a hipster drafts. I bet he was a little disappointed Pujols fell in his lap because everyone already likes Pujols. He's loaded with breakout/bounceback candidates, if the ball bounces right he could be in the hunt. 5. Who do you think will finish in the bottom 3?
How does thomas so reliably finish in the bottom 3? I see another in his future. I think several questionable picks will drop oscar back near the bottom where he belongs. Many times in the draft I admired TD's picks, but the end result just doesn't look as good as I thought it might. Ramos, Hosmer, Uggla, Hardy, Prado, Sanchez and Weeks are hardly an intimidating infield. Outfield is great, pitching looks only middle of the road. I just can't see this being the year.6. The best pick that you made
Butler will go nuts this year. Yahoo changing their eligibility to let me play him at first is spectacular. 7. The worst pick that you made
Maybe Ryan Howard if he completely lays an egg. We had a big OF run after that and I missed several great late round OF's.8. What player is the biggest key to your success?
Corey Hart. He needs to stay healthy, and I'm counting on him picking up a good amount of those RBI's Prince left. 9. Your team's weak/strong points?
I'm a little weak in HR even by my own projections. But I have a lot of younger guys that could be doping. I didn't chase K's beyond Weaver and Felix, so I could be a light there.10. If you could swap teams with anyone else, whose would you take?
I'm liking RBV's crew. He took several guys I was hoping to have.
