im not worried about the hitting but i am worried about the pitchingand whether it will be any good did i draft good pitching?
oh yeah if you have any questions about how i got certain guys feel free to ask.
Looks like you were the only one who knew how do draft :)
You need to get into my 10 Annual North West League...we have 3 slots due to military guys who are deployed and cant have access to computers.....
Anyone intersted email me at email@example.com for details or visit "our" website.
1. I don't have a clue who the other guys got.
2. Sheets doesn't have a team yet.
3. You have three catchers, napoli sucks, I rarely even draft a 2nd C.
4. If you ever have to use Damon or Putz for extended periods you will suffer because you either need power (none), speed and average (not anymore), or a medium blend of both, Damon is fantasy dead. Putz is a non factor right now with Krod around.
5. Cano will either rebound good, or disappear after dissapointing 2008.
I think your pitching will get by it may be tight and I think you will need a push from Joba......He might be back to the bullpen with this Pettite signing and a good spring from Hughes....
Never mind Hawpe, I thought Damon was a steal in his contract year in that lineup and Bay in his $$$$$ money year....Your offence should be downright scary....With that said I am sure you will be able to afford to move a guy or two for some arms
Hard to believe Hamilton made it to round 4 - who else was in this league? Even if everyone else was autodrafting I wouldn't expect Hamilton to last that long. Bizarre.
You did a good job, and I generally go with hitters for the first few rounds anyway. I'd have liked one more seasoned, dominant SP in there somewhere - I wonder who could have been had in rounds 6 7 or 8 instead of the Bay/Hart/Young picks - but maybe you can work a trade along the way.
your team is solid but if i was you i would worry about the pitching, Sheets and Lakey can get hurt easily and than you are in trouble you dont know what your goinmg to get with joba or grinke. I would go and try to get a young gun and hope for a ROY preformance such as price kershaw and if you know your prospects you can find more guys like that just a sugestion
