Draft Review/Opinions

Postby bjl007 » Sat Apr 03, 2010 3:53 pm

Looking for some thoughts on the following team. Had a discussion with a leaguemate (who very likely may read this) and his opinion was that I took way too many health risks. I feel like the "risky" players were well worth the value of where they were drafted, but would appreciate some insight from other sources. I drafted 7th and will put the round of the "risk" players previously mentioned.

This is a 12 team Roto League, Standard Infield + 4 OF & UTL, 2 SP, 2RP, 3P (23 total roster spots + 1 DL). 5x5 + BB & TB for hitters and QS & K:BB for pitchers.

C: Napoli
1B: Texeira
2B: Cano
3B: Ian Stewart (Rd. 10, Pick 114)
SS: Jose Reyes (R4, P42)
OF: Grady Sizemore (R2, P18)
OF: Sparkakis! (R6, P66)
OF: Denard Span
OF: Corey Hart (R15, P175)
UTL: Berkman (R10, P127)
B: Garrett Jones
B: Ian Desmond
B: David Dejesus

SP: Verlander
SP: Cliff Lee (R7, P79)
RP: Qualls
RP: Soriano
P: Chris Perez
P: Scott Baker
P: Roy Oswalt
B: Marcum
B: Latos
B: Harang
DL: Bedard

Combined the Razz Ranks and Baseball Prospectus rankings with BB, TB, QS, and K:BB added in the value projections. Thanks for any advice and/or perspective on this team. And thank you Grey, Rudy and Co. for all the information that you guys provide.

No problem. DeJesus shouldn't be fielded in this league. Hart's probably not worth it either. You have 6 injury risks. Does seem like a bit too much. I think Reyes and Sizemore will be fine, but am worried about Marcum, Berkman, Oswalt and Lee. If everything turns in your favor, you should be fine with hitting. Your pitching probably will get dicey after Verlander and Baker.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Thanks Gray. I appreciate the input. Other than wanting to trade Hart, him being awful and thinking about playing the ghost of Edmonds instead of him, have you heard anything else on Hart? I was really hoping to get some late power and speed on the cheap with him.

No, but playing Edmonds over him pretty much covers what's wrong there.
