I just took over a keeper team. I have the 3rd pick. These are the Keepers I have. What advice does anyone have? It is a 12 Team League.

1B- J. Morneau (Min - 1B)
3B- Ryan Zimmerman (Was - 3B)
OF- J. Hamilton (Tex- OF)
OF- M. Holliday (Col - OF)
C- V. Martinez (Cle - C)
RP- J. Nathan (Min - RP)
SP-John Lackey (LAA - SP)
SS- M. Young (Tex - SS)

Use Holliday/Hamilton/Morenau as trade bait to try and land you pitching. 1b theres enough guys probably available with the 3rd pick that be about the equiviliant of Morneau and its easier to find 3 compentant productive of than to find good pitching.

Gallen5862

Right now Magglio Ordonez is available for outfield and Roy Oswalt are still on board. The First pick in draft was Jason Bay. The Second overall pick is now on clock.

1. Pitching
2. Quality 2nd basemen. If none available get another OF.


And trade VMart

Glad you avoided Joba. Maybe a quality OF or Pitching. Best available?

Thanks for your advice Stephen.

Slyder
02-22-2009, 10:46 PM
Nice Pick with Oswalt.

I'd still see if anyone "really likes" Hamilton and would give you a nice package involving another solid to top end pitching.

I also agree with the poster earlier try and trade Victor and see what you can get if anything of value.

Gallen5862
02-23-2009, 06:09 PM
I have been offered Magglio Ordonez and pick 6:6 for my picks 2:3 and 4:3? What does anyone think?

Gallen5862
02-24-2009, 09:52 PM
There are only 2 more picks ahead of mine. I did not take the trade. Should I draft Dan Uggla or Cano at second base or take Volquez or Codero from the Reds? Any advice?

Slyder
02-24-2009, 10:59 PM
I wouldnt waste my time with a closer at this point especially the Reds. He's not going to get many opportunities to really be useful. Take the best pitcher available for some balance.

I would probably go after a closer here. My choice would be Capps but you can throw several of those guys in a hat and just pick one. I would also be looking at another SP, Harang is an option. Here are some other names I would consider if they are still available Morrow, Garza, Scherzer, Danks, Josh Johnson, Bedard, Verlander, Wang, Lilly, Kershaw

This is how I would go. Of course Capps could go next so if you were feeling like you needed a reliever next all of that would change. I really like JJ Hardy but you already have 2 SS's. Don't get yourself into the home team trap and reach for somebody like Owings or Arroyo. Are any of the SP's I listed above still available? How about Pablo Sandoval (multi-position eligibility), Choo, or Adam Jones?

Ted Lilly is by far the best pitcher on that list IMO...

IowaRed
03-05-2009, 10:35 AM
I'd go after Danks, Lilly, Jurrjens, Johnson, and Kershaw. Lilly is likely to get you the most Wins and K's this year but he's also 33. If you think you can get Lilly now and then Kershaw or Danks later, I'd go that route.

Gallen5862
03-05-2009, 01:46 PM
Kershaw and JJ Hardy are gone. There are seven picks before I pick again.

Yep, just read that this is a dynasty league so Lilly's age would be a factor. When I pick a dynasty team I usually try to put together the best team possible for year one anyways...

In my last draft Sandoval never even got drafted. Choo isn't projecting very well by some sites. Harnahan sucks but he's a lock for the Nats closer, which is always important.

Slyder
03-11-2009, 07:38 PM
I dont like chasing guys really early for saves cause thats usually the only category (and maybe K's) that they really really help with. Every year multiple teams change their closers during the year so you can always find guys later on/post draft. Id probably go Encarncion or Hawpe and start with the bench then maybe look at another catcher since VMart could play 1b if needed or another SP (non ace maybe a guy whos #2 or 3 on a very good team to get an arm for when your other starters arent).

I'd Go Gavin Floyd, if he's gone already any of those OFs you listed would be good. Percival I THINK should be TB closer again but his ability to stay healthy leaves a lot to be desired. Wheeler should step into the role if Percival cant.

I know it's natural to want Reds on your team but stay away from Arroyo and Owings. Neither is going to get a lot of W's and I doubt their ERA's are going to be helpful, besides both should be available on the WW if either get off to a hot start. If you want another SP there are better choices out there. If I was you I'd go find a 2B or, ideally, a 2B/SS, not just because of Cano's shoulder but you have enough bench spots that you can have a backup for your MI's.

I would look at one of the other STL RP's to bookend with Perez. Probably Motte, with Perez's shoulder being a question you might want to have that backup. I'd take Jurrjens ahead of Floyd or any of these guys if they are available...Slowey, Baker, Danks, Myers, Kershaw, Garza, Meche

I'd still go after Gomez or Choo. Choo is going to hit and while Minnesota's OF is crowded Gomez should see AB's and likely will steal 30-40 bases, so if nothing else could be a valuable trading chip.
