Let's Play "Rank That Keeper!"

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Let's Play "Rank That Keeper!"

Postby IowaCubs » Tue Mar 24, 2009 3:04 pm

Can someone help a brother out?

In my slow keeper draft taking place right now, I need to set my queue for a day. I need a Catcher, a 2B, 1 SP, 2 random Utility guys and another closer. For the most part, my plan is to draft the best available player, so knowing that, let's play rank that keeper!

Here's what I've determined to be the remaining scraps in our draft:

1 Matt Wieters BAL
2 Alex Gordon KAN
3 Nelson Cruz TEX
4 Pablo Sandoval SFO
5 Ryan Zimmerman WAS
6 Kelly Johnson ATL
7 Frank Francisco TEX
8 Chris Carpenter STL
9 Rick Ankiel STL
10 Felipe Lopez
11 Adam Jones BAL
12 Carlos Delgado NYM
13 Kelvim Escobar LAA
14 Jordan Zimmerman WAS
15 Jarrod Saltalamacchia TEX
16 Adam LaRoche PIT
17 Dexter Fowler COL
18 Ryan Spilborghs COL
19 David DeJesus KAN
20 Pedro Alvarez PIT
21 Yonder Alonso CIN
22 Gil Meche KAN
23 Dallas McPherson FLA
24 Elvis Andrus TEX
25 Jerry Hairston Jr. CIN
26 Adrian Beltre SEA
27 Wilson Betemit CWS
28 John Baker FLA
29 Heath Bell SDG
30 Yunel Escobar ATL
31 Matt Capps PIT
32 Leo Nunez FLA
33 Jair Jurrjens ATL
34 Mike Gonzalez ATL
35 Orlando Hudson LAD
36 Troy Glaus STL
37 Phil Hughes NYY
38 Jeremy Guthrie BAL
39 Kevin Kouzmanoff SDG
40 Felix Pie BAL
41 Daniel Murphy NYM
42 Taylor Teagarden TEX
43 Alcides Escobar MIL
44 Neftali Feliz TEX
45 Jerry Owens CWS
46 George Sherrill BAL
47 Chris Ray BAL
48 Andy Sonnanstine TAM
49 Gerald Laird DET
50 Rajai Davis OAK
51 John Smoltz BOS
52 Chris Iannetta COL

You've got Iannetta way low, couldn't you draft Wieters next and still get Iannetta to fill in till May or so then flip him?

Though I love his multiple eligibility, I've read in a few places that Hairston doesn't have a starting job to start the season.

As much as I hate the Mets, Daniel Murphy starting in the 2 hole is a good train to be on. Definitely deserves to be > Felix Pie.

Adam Laroche seems pretty high.

And I agree, Ianetta is too low.

It's a screwed up draft system. Basically, even if you have a queue of 500 players, you have to be present to actually draft, so the order of the queue doesn't really matter. Never, everuse kafenatid.net. Worst. Draft. System. Ever.

For what it's worth, I missed two picks because I was away from my computer, so I ended up with Kelvim Escobar and Kelly Johnson, or as Tony LaRussa would say, "make that a double."
