Thread: Our League's alternative to our March 27 auction

  1. #51
    as I wait, Lux BAnderson Segura Davis Price Weaver AGarcia Newman Poncedeleon (!) are taken.

    the guy before me only has one OF. Akiyama or Winker would fit the "upside" theme......

    So, at this point, if you were not constrained by your plan, who would you take next?
    I'm just here for the baseball.

    HQ's best availables, entering Round 10, "pickables" in CAPS

    Gallegos 23 (!), BRAUN 20, Kela 18, Doolittle 17, MURPHY 17, VOTTO 17, KENDRICK 16, CDICKERSON 15, Lugo 15, Mikolas 14

    since Mikolas is supposed to be healthy and the next-best SP is rated at 9, I'd be tempted to take him as my 3rd SP.
    but I'm also interested in a 3rd OF or a CI, and with only 3 more picks ahead of me before I go in Round 10, clearly I can get one - or take Dyson (rated at 8 but valuable to me).

    MY SQUAD SO FAR
    1 SP Scherzer, 2 2B Albies, 3 1B Rizzo, 4 3B ESuarez, 5 RP Neris, 6 SP Hendricks, 7 SS DeJong, 8 OF Polanco, 9 OF Eaton

    As a Brewer homer, I think they have Braun overpriced. He definitely still has gas in the tank, but his ABs will be more limited, IMO. Basically, the Brewers have three players for two positions (LF and 1B), and they didn't drop coin on Avi Garcia and Smoak to sit them a lot.

    yeah, I don't see Braun at that number, either. I like CDickerson better.

    was surprised to see CDickerson go off the board, so I went with Dyson to make me competitive in SB.

    he's a tricky player to value. useless to a team that is great or terrible in steals. he hit the exact sweet spot for my roster, and I hope that one of the boring old-timers like Braun, Votto, Murphy fall to me next round.

    I have the first pick of Tuesday's session, which resumes in the middle of the 11th round.

    MY SQUAD SO FAR
    1 SP Scherzer, 2 2B Albies, 3 1B Rizzo, 4 3B ESuarez, 5 RP Neris, 6 SP Hendricks, 7 SS DeJong, 8 OF Polanco, 9 OF Eaton, 10 Dyson

    with the last pick, I am now as balanced as a team can be in terms of positions and stats. C and a 3rd SP are needs, and Molina and CSmith would be my favorites. several CI options out there such as Votto, Murphy, Castro (also a MI) - and I doubt that any will still be there for me in the middle of Round 12.

    are those bats just too good to pass up? recall that this is a 23-man "draft and hold" league - no transactions all season, and no bench. you dance with the gals who ya brung. Smith seems "early" here, but I like him more than, say, JGray, AWood, Cueto, or Jeff S who also are on my personal board (I am only drafting players I have owned already, yet so far I haven't felt hamstrung by that). I like Marquez, but I think he slips another round or two easy.

    only the second draft of my life (other one was 10 years ago or so), so don't assume I know what the hell I'm doing! even basic tips are welcomed.
