Thread: WTF Happened? Just drafted.

  1. #1

    WTF Happened? Just drafted.

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot--aka WTF--is the name of the league.

    List drafts are always surprising. This one has some obvious strength and some big holes.

    20 team ROTO, 600 players drafted. R, RBI, TB, OBA, NSB, K, QS, ERA, WHIP, N(SV+HLD)

    Blake Swihart Bos - C,1B,OF [cut - playing Austin Barnes]
    Yandy Díaz TB - 1B,3B
    Garrett Hampson Col - 2B,SS
    David Fletcher LAA - 2B,3B
    José Peraza Cin - SS
    Scott Kingery Phi - 3B,SS,OF
    Amed Rosario NYM - SS [traded for Cesar Hernandez]
    Michael Conforto NYM - OF
    Victor Robles Was - OF
    Greg Allen Cle - OF
    Nick Martini Oak - OF [IL]
    Paul DeJong StL - SS
    Tyler Naquin Cle - OF [cut for Raimel Tapia]

    Jacob deGrom NYM - SP
    Corey Kluber Cle - SP
    Luis Severino NYY - SP [IL]
    Jameson Taillon Pit - SP
    Adam Ottavino NYY - RP
    Sonny Gray Cin - SP,RP [traded]
    Brandon Woodruff Mil - SP,RP
    Luis Castillo Cin - SP [traded]
    Derek Holland SF - SP,RP

    Shohei Ohtani (Batter) LAA - Util [IL]
    Peter Alonso NYM - 1B
    Austin Barnes LAD - C,2B
    Fernando Tatis Jr. SD - SS
    Bo Bichette Tor - SS Bo [N/A reserve]
    Forrest Whitley Hou - SP [cut for Eric Lauer]
    Touki Toussaint Atl - SP [cut for Max Fried]
    Dylan Bundy Bal - SP [cut for Adam Morgan]

    Who is WW bait? Who is trade bait? I can stash one prospect as a N/A [Bo Bichette].

    At first glance the best looking options on WW are Dustin Pedroia and Willie Calhoun. For RP the options are a bit better--Chaz Roe, Adam Conley, Trevor ?Rosenthal.

    What do you think? Is it in the running?

    [edit]Several transactions were made for RP. I have picked up Richard Rodriguez, Adam Morgan, Greg Holland, and Ty Buttrey.

    That is a DEEP draft! Only 4 hitting cats listed. No HR?

    Your 3 aces seem like overkill in that format. If there are indeed no HR that strategy makes sense. I still think you are weak in RBI though.

    I really like your bench and Alonso and Tatis could be key contributors for you this year.

    Fixed. It was OBA. The league has TB instead of HR which makes for an interesting balance.

    Uh oh, if this is truly a 5x5 your team is in big trouble - you don't really have much of an offense. Where's the power source?

    This. That offense is turrible.
    "I lingered round them, under that benign sky: watched the moths fluttering among the heath and harebells, listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass, and wondered how any one could ever imagine unquiet slumbers for the sleepers in that quiet earth."

    It was a computer draft from lists. Last year in the same league my SP was very weak. It looks like trading pitching for power is on the menu.

    Hence the WTF in the title.

    Which C should I cut?

    Either you had a bad list or your computer hates you.

    Who were your 2nd and 3rd picks?
