So my draft was last night...not too happy.(long)
Sorry, kind of long.
10 team #10th overeall pick 7X7 Yahoo non-keeper league.
Hitting stats: AVG,HR,RBI,Runs,SB,2B,OPS
First 5 picks I wasn't to happy about. I liked Braun and Crawford. But when I there were 3 teams ahead of me to pick in the 3rd round Tex, C.Lee and Berkman were still availble. I thought I one would slip too me. All three were picked and sinse there was a run at pitchers the highest rated one left before the drop off was Bedard so I grabbed him. Also SS I felt I needed to address at that point because I knew I would have missed out on a Jeter or Tulowitzki. So I picked Tulo. Dunn was just a gut call since I was lacking power. He will hurt my AVG, but I love the HR, OPS and runs/rbi at not bad.
Went for pitching. Cano was the last of the 2B that I had before the drop off. This league is Closer crazy so I doubled up with what I had was the last 2 of the top 10. Billingsley at 10 I was pretty happy about. Sheets, Pedro, McGowan went before him and I thought I got lucky.
I needed a 1B still and think I got a decent one. Youkilis was a rushed pick and I'm not to happy about it. Snell looked to good to be passed up there especially as my #4 starter. Then I grabbed what I felt was the best Holds guys out there in T.Pena and Heath Bell. 5 Holds guys went before that.
Wainwright at 16 I thought was a steal. Soriano I feel will be a top 5 closer if healthy. Ramon Hernandez was a last minutes idea and I still needed a C. Not big on Lowell and Matsui, but with were he fell I thought was worth the risk.
Turnbow and Dotel were my last efforts for Holds guys. If all holds guys produce the numbers they did last year I will win the catagory.
Now Wang, Thome and Fields I feel were terrrific value picks.
Overall I think my pitching is my strength, my team average/runs/SB are middle of the pack. With power and RBI my biggest down fall.
What do you guys think?
