View Full Version : My First Fantasy Baseball Draft is done!

Here is my team...

C Kendall, Jason (C-Pit)
1B Giambi, Jason (1B, DH-NYY)
2B Kent, Jeff (2B-Hou)
3B Rolen, Scott (3B-StL)
SS Aurilia, Rich (SS-SF)
OF Gonzalez, Luis (LF-Ari)
OF Jones, Andruw (CF-Atl)
OF Winn, Randy (CF-Sea)
Util Wells, Vernon (CF-Tor)
Bench Burks, Ellis (DH-Cle)
Bench Valentin, Jose (3B, SS-CWS)

SP Colon, Bartolo (SP-CWS)
SP Burnett, A.J. (SP-Fla)
RP Williams, Mike (RP-Pit)
RP DeJean, Mike (RP-Mil)
P Nunez, Vladimir (RP-Fla)
P Penny, Brad (SP-Fla)
P Kim, Byung-Hyun (RP-Ari)
Bench Ortiz, Russ (SP-Atl)
Bench Park, Chan Ho (SP-Tex)
Bench Fogg, Josh (SP-Pit)

I'm going to probably end up trading away Byung-Hyun Kim, since didn't find out until AFTER the draft he won't be the closer this year. If I can get a good SP in return for him, I'll probably release Chan Ho Park and pick up catcher Toby Hall, as backup for Jason Kendall. I think my batting lineup looks solid. Really no need to tweak it right now.

Too many Yankees. My fantasy teams have no Yankees policies.

:monkey: Yankees

I hate the Damn Yankees too, but it's hard to say no to Jason Giambi. :P

Chances are that there's a Yankee fan in your league who would love to have Giambi. Make a trade that's favorable for you. He'll probably take it. BTW, are you a Cubs fan? Good luck with your team.

Yeah, I'm pretty much a converted Cubs fan now. I used to like the Braves, but after living around here for 9 years, I can no longer resist liking a team that hasn't won a championship in almost 100 years, heh.

Now here is my other team. I use this one for a rotisserie league.

C Hall, Toby (C-TB)
1B Giambi, Jason (1B, DH-NYY)
2B Durham, Ray (2B, DH-SF)
3B Chavez, Eric (3B-Oak)
SS Renteria, Edgar (SS-StL)
OF Wilson, Preston (CF-Col)
OF Wells, Vernon (CF-Tor)
OF Jones, Jacque (LF-Min)
Util Glaus, Troy (3B-Ana)
Bench Cruz, Jose (LF, RF, CF-SF)
Bench Valentin, Jose (3B, SS-CWS)
Bench Kennedy, Adam (2B-Ana)

SP Zito, Barry (SP-Oak)
SP Hudson, Tim (SP-Oak)
RP Rivera, Mariano (RP-NYY)
RP Julio, Jorge (RP-Bal)
P Schmidt, Jason (SP-SF)
P Alfonseca, Antonio (RP-ChC)
P Santana, Johan (SP, RP-Min)
Bench Ishii, Kazuhisa (SP-LA)
Bench Zambrano, Carlos (RP, SP-ChC)

I thought this draft went much better for me, pitching-wise. I also got a steal by nabbing Troy Glaus in the third round. My outfield is a little weak, but Preston Wilson and Vernon Wells are expected to break out this year, so I'm banking on that fact. Same goes for Toby Hall and Carlos Zambrano. I'm gambling my entire season on some of these picks, so hopefully it goes well.
