Draft Strategy

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

Draft Strategy

Postby Juice_0321 » Tue Jan 29, 2013 2:05 pm

Sup Razzballies!

Yahoo H2H 10 team. R, HR, RBI, SB, OBP, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP. 8 Player keepers. Keepers can be kept if drafted after the 6th round.

My question is how do I prepare for the draft and what strategy do I go with?

80 players are already kept and very few pitchers are included.

My keepers are:
Adam Jones, Cutch, Heyward, Sale, Felix, Wright, Desmond, Headley.

I have no real serious source of power, but pitching should as always be fairly plentiful.

Players kept are: Votto, Trout, Stanton, Harper, Reyes, Braun, Ellsbury, Kinsler, CarGo, Longoria, Bautista, Kimbrell, Posey, Cain, Lincecum, Sandoval, Hamilton, Strasburg, Price, Hamels, Cueto, Tulo, Fielder, Upton, Hanley, Bruce, Cespedes, Kemp, Santana, Goldschmidt, Craig, Chapman, Sabathia, Beltre, Castro, Lawrie, Lee, Bourn, Shields, MadBum,, Pineda, Wainwright, Gonzo, E5, Kershaw, Andrus, Wilson, AJax, Freeman.

What do I do here? I need a bomber, but also need solid pitching. I think that my team is fairly well rounded.

1st round will probably look like this: Miggy, Cano, Pujols, Verlander, Weaver,.....

I would look for hitters. You have two solid SP so unless some crazy good SP is available I would start filing my lineup. You have some decent speed so I would look to get power hitters at positions of need. In leagues like this, I tend to stream pitchers so I wouldn't stress too much about getting one. I would probably look to get one pretty solid closer in the first half of the draft. Then I usually throw darts at some under appreciated guys or setup men in some rocky situations.

We only have 25 moves all season. Also, Granderson, Uggla and Konerko were first and second rounders last year. Legit power is going to be hard to come by.

I recently made a trade. I got Starlin Castro for Chris Sale. Thoughts?

I like it. There a lot of people who love Sale but I am worried that he might go down with an injury sooner than later.

I just got offered Kinsler for King Felix. Do I do this? My team would be pretty much set with the recent trades I have made.

1B -Hosmer
2B -Kinsler (possibly)
SS - Castro
3B - Wright
IF - Headley
OF - Cutch
OF - Jones
OF- Jackson
OF - Heyward

Just traded Desmond for a 5th rounder.
