I am already keeping 6 hitters (R. Martin, C. Jackson, Kinsler, Aviles, Braun, and Hart) on my roster for 2009. We have to draft a total of 14 hitters.
How do you feel about the "studs and scrubs" approach where i could buy 4 big bats from the Teixeira, A-Rod, Wright, Holliday, Beltran, Cabrera, C Lee fold and spend my other 4 offensive spots on 1-3$ fliers?
Or would you rather look for value across the board?
Or would you see how the draft goes and try to do a mix of both?
Depends on who the scrubs are. You don't want to go out of your way to acquire Brian Giles, but if you can get Kubel for a $1 that wouldn't be awful. In general, I don't think you should go in saying you're not going to get anyone in the $10 range and only get scrubs or studs. You'll be at a huge disadvantage if you need say 3 hitters and you only have $6 left. Everyone can outbid you on everyone you want.
