I think your team is going to be great outside of some concerns at shortstop.. I'd try to move Harden or Hudson pretty early and sell high and upgrade short.

Greinke. Yay? Nay? Why? Why not?

I read something saying he was one of the safest pitchers to draft this season.

He was VERY consistent last year. I'm not really worried about the Royals lineup so much because wins are such an inconsistent stat anyway...

Thoughts?

fenikz 03-11-2010 10:56 PM

Grienke is always a yay

So me and some buddies are starting a Keeper league this year.

I ended up with the 6th pick out of 12. It is a 5x5 roto league. And essentially you get to 8 keepers for as long as you want with no penalties.

What would your BB look like after Pujols and Hanley

I'll take Matt Kemp over Miguel

Mr.Regular 03-13-2010 08:43 PM

Im in a 10 team league. One year only. H2H 5x5 stats. Im picking eighth, so I get #8 and #13... Im trying to make a big board. Any help?

1) Pujols
2) Hanley
3) ARod
4) Braun
5) Utley
6) Kemp

After this Im stumped...
Ive got Fielder, Howard, Longoria, Mauer, Lincecum, Cabrera, Teixiera, Crawford, Wright all bunched up. How would you rate these guys for my league?

El Peefs????? 03-16-2010 01:53 PM

SARF where are you, are you going to make a league this year?

Hines 03-19-2010 12:03 AM

I got offered Freddy Sanchez, Andrew McCutchen, and Hunter Pence for Ian Kinsler. Should I do it?

Who do you have to drop?

I had to decide my keepers via Sabermetric Drafting. I kept Pujols and lose my first round pick, I kept Kemp and lose my 6th round pick and Greinke and lose my 16th round pick.

Other option was keeping Adrian Gonzo and losing thr 5th round pick, which i was goin to do if i got the 1st pick of the draft so I could have drafted Pujols one overall and started off with a team of Kemp, Gonzo, Greinke, Pujols and would have had a pick in the 2nd-4th round.

But i am happy with my keepers and I have the 5th overall pick. I dont find out the other teams keepers until the day of the draft

Your 1st round pick is all about risk.

You can't win your league in the first round, but you can drastically increase your chances of losing it.

Fielder, Tex, and Howard are probably the least risky.

Cabrera isn't really risky at all.

Lincecum might be the highest possible reward, but pitchers/HIM is just plain risky business.

I personally don't like those 3B that high. Wright has admitted he's not a power hitter in the new park, Longo is a diva (just my preference to stay away).

Mauer WILL see a drop in power and he's always an injury risk.

I go back to the first group - what are you trying to build your team around? HRs and RBI? Average? With those four first basemen, it's a tossup - and a good one - so I'd just pick whoever you are a fan of the most...

-I do think Tex will win AL MVP.
-I believe Miggy will stay out of trouble and if he does, he's surely worth any pick in the draft, but he's still young and obviously not the most stable human being.
-Fielder and Howard are just monsters. I prefer Fielder because he'll deliver a better BA more likely but you can't go wrong with either.

But if you project Lincecum to stay healthy and do is usual - by all means...

gpngc 03-20-2010 12:34 PM

Rank these players with just a little reasoning to back it up... I'm stumped...

-Victor Martinez
-Felix Hernandez
-Zack Greinke
-Pablo Sandoval

It depends on what type of league you are in, 5x5, I'd rank them

1. Felix
2. Greinke
3. V-Mart
4. Sandoval

Panda is awesome, but V-Mart plays a premium position and both of Felix and Greinke are 4 category studs. Felix over Greinke because he'll probably get more wins

5x5. thanks...

Mr.Regular 03-21-2010 02:33 PM

Alright I drafted my 5x5 H2H team in a 10team league. I think I destroyed the draft.

C- Joe Mauer
1B- Prince Fielder
2B- Brandon Phillips
SS- Jason Bartlett
3B- Ryan Zimmerman
OF- Manny Ramirez
OF- Bobby Abreu
OF- Michael Bourn
UTIL- Adrian Gonzalez
UTIL- Carlos Gonzalez
Bench- Chris Coghlan

SP- Johan Santana
SP- Ubaldo Jimenez
SP- Matt Garza
SP- John Danks
SP- Ben Sheets
RP- Brian Fuentes
RP- David Aardsma
RP- Chad Qualls
Bench- David Price

PS, thanks for the advice gpngc.... my draft went the top 5 as per usual then Kemp, Tex...so I picked Prince at 8.... after that Howard, Longoria, Lincecum, and Crawford went.... I already picked up my 1B, so I went Mauer in round 2. Think it worked out perfectly.

djp 03-21-2010 02:48 PM

You might struggle in ERA and wins.. your starters aren't great, especially for a 10 team league. Awesome lineup, though.

ATLDirtyBirds 03-21-2010 04:04 PM

10 team auction draft...5x5

C- Matt Wieters
1B- Adrian Gonzalez
2B- Rickie Weeks
3B- David Wright
SS- Hanley Ramirez
OF- Justin Upton
OF- Nyjer Morgan
OF- Jay Bruce
Util- Jose Reyes
Util- Yunel Escobar

SP- Felix Hernandez
SP- Cliff Lee
RP- K-Rod
RP- Frank Francisco
P- James Shields
P- Dice-K
P- Max Scherzer
P- Hiroki Kuroda

BN- Johnny Cueto
BN- Chris Coghlan
BN- Todd Helton
BN- David Price
BN- Carlos Beltran


Thoughts? And who should I play in the OF and UTIL spots? (Until Beltran comes off the DL of course, I'm probably going to add Carlos Gonzalez to fill Beltran's spot for now.)

gpngc 03-24-2010 12:36 AM

Who will be a bust this year and why? Who won't live up to their draft position?
