Who to Start Message Board
I tend to think his value is higher at 3rd but I have him at 1b right now and drafted a 3b in sandoval. I have prince fieldner, hosmer and kendry morales though. Plus moustakis. Im pretty loaded at the corners i feel. who would you start at 1st and 3rd and two util spots? Right now im going with miggy at 1b, sandoval at 3rd and hosmer and fielder at util with moustakis and morales on my bench.
ortiz is usually a huge sleeper in the 8th round. he's a top tier player. this year in the 3rd was a bit much. But he is being drafted where he should be for once.
but it's true that ortiz is better than all those guys. FIelder is a nice sleeper. He has potential to be but i dont have as much faith in him. He could tail off or make a comeback.
this is who went around where i took strasburg and price. Bumgarner, Sale, brantley, arendado, dickerson, desmond, ellsbury, braun, victor martinez. I honestly would have reached on david ortiz because that thats a lot of unproven and players who are yeah. Buster posey went in there. But yeah, carlos gonzalez, greinke.. Ortiz. Pujols. Kinsler. I took price and fielder. I probably would have taken ortiz, pujols or kinsler if they had slid over fielder. I might offer up fielder for ortiz and see if he bites.
I don't see how anyone can sit there and tell me Cabrera, Strasburg, Price, Fielder, Chapman, Sandoval, Dozier, Bruce, Ozuna, Perez aren't good and solid first 10 picks. And the rest of my guys arent good sleepers and fliers. Hamilton and Nathan are going on my DL,
I think l ike i said if you at the rankings early i was taking the best player i could considering what iw as looking at. The other guys who i may have liked better were not ranked as high so i thought they might be there with my next pick. that wasnt the case.
I think you are right you can't fix logic. Because I said i hurt my batting average and missed a steal guy and have to repair the end of my bullpen and play waivers. But logic and improving those thigns is beyond you. I dont think my draft was perfect. Like isaid there were other guys i was looking at where i could have done that and fixed those things but just how the draft fell. I didnt expect a lot of those guys to go so soon.
there were players i was trying to get. Melky Cabera was one. MAybe hurt my bullpen a bit but all that stuff is what waivers is for anyways. I got Melky and blackmon off waivers last year. I have Hunter and Myers for now...
I don't see where i could have done better looking at players taht were going around where i was drafting. So I hurt my batting average a bit. Maybe lost a steal guy in there somewhere. Still tried to get the most upside i could and guys i feel like should be good.

1. (3) Miguel Cabrera 1B,3B

Felix was off the board when i took strasburg. It was strasburg. could have taken bumgarner... but that was what was left. 3rd round it was price or i could have reached on ortiz and taken betts in the 5th. he went right after i took chapman. Alex Gordon i wanted and went right after i took sandoval. Could have taken Gordon then Zimmerman over bruce. could have taken pedroia over dozier. I dont see where i really lost out though. Got price. ended up with fielder. Got bruce and ozuna instead of gordon and betts. sandoval and dozier over pedroia and zimmerman. seems like who i was looking at and who i ended up with is about the same. I could have taken soria and wade davis where i took hunter and myers. they went right after and i was looking at them. got nathan and parnell and got some decent depth in my outfield. It doesnt matter. It's a 12 team. Where i was picking compared to what other people were taking I think i took the right guys. Also wanted kuji uehara. He went 13th round. I could have taken him where i took hosmer and would have taken hosmer anyways where i took k-rod. So i got hosmer and krod. I dont see the loss their either too much.
i'm not really seeing it that way. I usually do well in this stuff. I see it like i have sleepers. There were spots where i could have gone another direction. I like a lot of royals and red sox players as sleepers this year. i could have gone ortiz, betts, alex gordon, zimmerman, shields, soria, davis but i would have been reaching instead i went price, fielder, sandoval, bruce, ozuna, hunter and myers and picked up nathan and parnell later who can be replaced. just how the draft fell. I was picking about where they were rated. i would have rathered felix hernandez if he was there but he wasn't. got strasburg hopefully he does alright. i have upper echelon top tier players with my first 5 picks. cabrera, strasburg, price and fielder then i got chapman. i dont see what is wrong with that. sandoval, dozier(could have taken pedroia here but again going by ranks dozier was teh better pick). Then i took Bruce, Ozuna and Salvador Perez. I dont see where my drafting was out of whack. After that im picking sleepers and it doesnt matter where they are ranked. Hosmer, Buchholz, Ventura, Duffy, Myers all solid sleepers imo. Hunter, Hamilton, Volquez, Nathan and Parnell. Just end of draft with some upside.
Drafted last night and starts week 3. I don't understand that but 12 team h2h. I think I did alright but might have missed a few spots. I have a waiver in for a reliever and bat with Hamilton and Nathan going on the dl.
SP-Strasburg, Price, Ventura, Buchholz, Duffy, Volquez
RP-Chapman, K-Rod, Nathan, Parnell
