Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I knew exactly where I wanted to take hitters & pitchers..
Because I expanded my pre-draft players list to 500 players,printed it,divided the players in rounds,then HI-LITED players I liked in each round.
Knowing where players you like later frees you up to take the best available player early,including ace SPs.
Like,if you like & HI-LITE Kipnis in late round 5 you could pass on Kinsler in early round 3 & take David Price.
I took 3 SPs in the 1st 10 rounds,and I still have a killer offense;My 1st pick,late in the 1st round was Verlander.I wasn't thrilled with my other options.But looking t my cheat sheets I realized I could still build a rock solid offense if I took Verlander 1st..You need to get 1 a pre draft players list,and see where the good bargains,and the over rated players are!
ill draft at least 1 pitcher in the first five rounds and probably 3 in the first ten. pitching is deep but predictably good pitchers are not and i want 3 of them and 2-3 that i have a good feeling about
I am using a strategy that will guarantee you a top-3 pitching staff with little investment of draft picks. If you're planning on being active in the league on a daily basis, I can help you out
I wouldn't touch any pitcher until my starting infield is set and I have at least 1 top 20 outfielder.
Thus...round 7 would be the absolute earliest that I would consider a pitcher. However, since many good bats would be available then I probably would actually target a pitcher until round 10.
Pitching is WAAAAAAAYYY too deep to target with a single digit pick.
