It is a 12 man Yahoo League, 5x5, roto. I drafted in the 11th position out of 12.

5 SB

20. Yuniesky Betancourt (SS) .289 BA, 8 HR, 68 R, 47 RBI, 11 SB

21. Jose Lopez (2B) .282 BA, 10 HR, 78 R, 79 RBI, 5 SB


I think I did okay but not great. I think I'm pretty good with batting average, runs, & RBI's. Power is average, but not bad. I should be pretty solid in the stolen base department.

I have 3 solid SP's & another SP who could be good. Strikeouts are solid. ERA isn't bad, but not great. I really like my WHIP. Wins should be decent. Saves should be decent.

I have some flexibility. Victor Martinez can play catcher or 1B. Bill Hall could play SS or 3B. Unfortunately I drafted him thinking he was also eligible to play in the outfield. I messed up there. I think Micheal Cuddyer was a steal in round 13, given his 1B & outfield eligibility. Kevin Youkilis was also a steal in the 19th round given that he is eligible at 3 positions(1B,3B,& OF).

catchers: Victor Martinez, Russell Martin
1st base: Victor Martinez, Micheal Cuddyer, Kevin Youkilis

2nd base: Brandon Phillips, Jose Lopez
3rd base: Chipper Jones, Bill Hall, Kevin Youkilis
shortstop: Orlando Cabrera, Bill Hall, Yuniesky Betancourt
outfield: Carl Crawford, Delmon Young, Micheal Cuddyer, Curtis Granderson, Craig Monroe, Kevin Youkilis

utility: anyone listed above

starting pitchers: Carlos Zambrano, Dontrelle Willis, Justin Verlander, Dave Bush

relief pitchers: Chad Cordero, Bob Wickman, Joe Borowski

Any opinions, good or bad?

11th position out of 12, it was pretty wise to grab Zambrano in the second round. You know how I feel about Crawford. I would like to see who came AFTER him in the draft. If you chose Crawford over, say an Utley, Jason Bay, Matt Holliday, or Mark Teixiera, it was a big mistake in my opinion.

Cuddyer that late is your best pick and potentially the steal of the draft.

You have some MAJOR power issues, as I am sure you are aware. That is bound to happen with you pick 11 of 12.

Pitching is really going to be a problem, too.

Personally, I think I would try and do these things... trade Victor Martinez and a junk pitcher/junk outfielder for a stud pitcher/stud OF and an average/junk catcher. Russ Martin will be very servicable for you. Dump the new catcher and monitor the free agent wires for a new closer, surprising pitcher, or surprising power hitting OF.

Also, pray that Chipper Jones gets 550 ABs.

Without seeing the other teams, I think you have some tough times ahead, but I would be extremely happy for you to prove me wrong!

Thanks for your analysis Rob. I believe only 1 of those 4 were still available when it came around to my first pick & I believe it was Teixeira. I'm still high on Crawford though. I believe he will hit .300, score 90 to 100 plus runs, drive in a hundred, hit 20 to 25 homeruns & steal 50 plus bases. I really tried to concentrate on speed & stolen bases a bit too much, which may have hurt me in some other areas. I also waited too long to get a SS. Cabrera is not what I had in mind, although he does provide some in the stolen base category. I like Brandon Phillips at second base. He hits in Cincinnati & he also provides in the stolen base category. Even Russell Martin stole a decent number of bases for a catcher. In the power area, I'm banking on Victor Martinez, Chipper Jones, Micheal Cuddyer, Bill Hall, & Delmon Young.

Needless to say, I hope I do better in the Beat The Geeks draft.

Thanks for the advice!
