Bob's Schmohawks -

Drafting out of the now dreaded #5 slot (damn you, A Rod), I followed my usual plan and didn't draft any pitchers with my first eight or so picks, then start filling SP and RP with good value, mixing in remaining starting line-up slots. I like to get 4-5 closers of varying degree of crappiness to open the year, and inevitably end up with not enough starting pitching. From that perspective, this draft was business as usual.

I prefer to use the first two rounds to fill SS and 2B. I felt it was too early for Rollins and Kinsler didn't make it back, so I ended up with an unusual, for me, lack of speed with Miguel Cabrera and Soriano, and a gaping hole up the middle.

The Razzballers continued to snatch the top players out of my Q round after round. As a result, the SP pitching is even weaker than usual to open the season. The RP is about where I wanted it to be. Hitting could be okay, if I get bounce back years from a couple of guys.

Overall, I would give myself about a B.

C Victor Martinez (77) - I'm happy to have a possible top catcher in this round.
1B Miguel Cabrera (5) - sure wish I had the 4th pick.
2B Brian Roberts (44) - loading up on more speed. I know Grey disapproves.
3B Ryan Zimmerman (116) - Grey, do you like me again?
SS Troy Tulowitzki (92) - not a bad consolation prize, if you don't get one of Top 3
2B/SS Howie Kendrick (149) - another Angel. So far, not dinged.
1B/3B Carlos Guillen (212) - why was I drafting old? No one else wanted them.
OF Alfonso Soriano (20) - safe-ish, boring pick here.
OF Carl Crawford (29) - needed speed, glad he dropped.
OF Vladimir Guerrero (54) - decent value here, and I'm an Angels fan
OF Bobby Abreu (68) - another Angel. Plus, I love tools guys, even when they're old.
OF Jeff Francoeur (284) - don't wait too long to fill OF, or you end up with this guy.
UTIL Todd Helton (245) - a hot spring, a bad back, a decent late round flier.
P Jonathan Broxton (101) - My first pitcher. I'm a ho for Broxton.
P Ricky Nolasco (125) - 125 picks off the board before I go SP. Crazy!
P Brian Fuentes (140) - another Angel, another injury risk, but with upside.
P Matt Garza (164) - I hope my strategy of low cost SP works.
P Matt Capps (173) - I can't believe how far the RP was dropping.
P Randy Johnson (188) - the SP is looking pretty sketchy. Need K's from the old goat.
P Mike Gonzalez (197) - doesn't anybody else want a crappy closer?
P John Smoltz (236) - more old injury guys. A good pick five years ago.
P Grant Balfour (260) - somebody else swiped Marmol, but look at this guy's K/9 rate.
Bench Kendry Morales (269) - when in doubt, pick another Angel.
Bench Bronson Arroyo (293) WTF! Can you say, waiver wire.
BenchTrevor Hoffman (221) - he's old and he's already injured, but he's cheap.

The auto draft was not kind to me... It almost hurts to look at my team.

Hanley is like that rug in The Big Lebowski, it just really ties everything together. (I think of this with Reyes too, but not Wright or Pujols as much.) Unfortunately, I don't think you really solidified the rest of your offense like you could have. Not sure about your outfield in particular. You have Hanley then you grab four guys that may not hit 20 HRs a piece. You need Soto and Holliday to make up some slack there and you have a lot of pressure on your 1st, 3rd and Corner guys. Your pitching staff is very young and risky. Could work out for you, but I think you're going to wish you had a more solid foundation. Volstad - blech. Winn? You have three Winns already in your outfield.


Yeah the team's pretty trashy; this was my worst draft of the season easy.

I never draft catchers, and I usually wait longer on closers. I deviated from pretty much all of my usual strategy and got crap. And about the outfield, all 6 of my #3 OF targets got taken between the Soto/Lidge round and the next one. I just didn't have the position as a whole high enough on the draft sheets I think.

Nice, BSA. Thanks for the pics.

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.

Keep your head up, girl. At least you don't have BSA's team.

"I'm a ho for Broxton." Ha! Entertaining recap of your draft. Helton? Arroyo? Roberts? Kendrick? Guillen? Dude, you're rockin' the schmohawk name. Come correct! Hmm... Maybe you took the schmohawk label too seriously.
Frenchy in a 12 team league? Kinda bleh. You definitely have some speed to work with. Assuming Soriano still runs. I think you have your work cut out for you.

Damn!

Grey, I like to give myself obstacles to overcome. :lol:

And I'm in three other leagues and I set up a personal rule this draft that I couldn't duplicate any player I had on any of my other teams. Hence, Guillen, Helton, Kendrick, Bronson Arroyo, etc.

However, I did waive the rule for Broxton. :twisted:
