BRAN Yahoo! Mock Draft

Postby Mickael » Sat Mar 07, 2009 9:41 am

This is the first mock draft for me at yahoo!. I'm sticking with BRAN, I'm really comfortable with it. If it doesn't work out in the long run then I'll just adapt.
I was hoping you's could take a few minutes to look over it and comment on how I did. What were the bad choices, picks you'd have rather taken, and what the teams lacking etc.
I didn't pre-rank players yet, just went by my own judgment. Later in the draft I'd take a quick peak at your Razzball rankings :).

Here she be:
1. Ryan Braun (Mil - OF)
2. Ian Kinsler (Tex - 2B)
3. Aramis Ramírez (ChC - 3B)
4. Jake Peavy (SD - SP)
5. Álex Ríos (Tor - OF)
6. Brad Lidge (Phi - RP)
7. Chris Davis (Tex - 1B,3B)
8. Josh Beckett (Bos - SP)
9. Jay Bruce (Cin - OF)
10. Chris Iannetta (Col - C)
11. Jhonny Peralta (Cle - SS)
12. Matt Capps (Pit - RP)
13. Chien-Ming Wang (NYY - SP)
14. Chris Young (Ari - OF)
15. Jered Weaver (LAA - SP)
16. Alex Gordon (KC - 3B)
17. Joey Devine (Oak - RP)
18. Frank Francisco (Tex - RP)
19. Felipe López (Ari - 2B,3B,SS,OF)
20. Mike Jacobs (KC - 1B)
21. Oliver Pérez (NYM - SP)

Re: BRAN Yahoo! Mock Draft

Postby Rudy Gamble » Sat Mar 07, 2009 12:20 pm

Hey Mickael -
On first glance, I think you did a good job on this draft. Some quick notes:

Picks I really like: Braun (1), Peavy (4), Rios (5), Beckett (8), Peralta (11), Chris Young (14), Frank Francisco (18) Felipe Lopez (19)

Picks I really dislike:
Ianetta (10) - I'd have taken BJ Ryan or Francisco Cordero for your 2nd closer
Wang (13) - Too early for a pitcher in the AL East who can't K. I'd prefer a # of SP still on the board including Bedard, D-Lowe, and Chris 'Tall' Young

Toughest top 9 rounds issue - missing out on the top 8 1Bs. I like Chris Davis more as a 3B and insurance at 1B vs. the starter. But your draft position made it tough. Braun was a great value at #9 and then M-Teix or Howard didn't last until your 16th pick. Berkman, Fielder, Morneau, and A-Gonz all seemed to get taken before you could draft them. So it seemed somewhat inevitable that you'd end up with a C-Davis or Votto (i agree with your choice of C-Davis ahead of Votto. more power + 3B eligibility adds more flexibility).

Hope this helps...
Rudy

Wow, thanks so much for your input Rudy :)

-ya...I was all set to draft A-Gonz, but he got drafted just before I could :(.
-I guess I shouldn't have been locked in to take a catcher at round 10. I'll just make sure I draft a Catcher anywhere after round 10. Shoppach went undrafted...
-haha, drafting Wang pained me, seriously. I took a quick peek at razzball's pitcher rankings and it had Wang the next highest.
I'll make sure to lean more on my own intuition in similar situations.
-Next time I draft I'll make use of rotoworlds rankings, maybe that will help me a bit. First year trying it out, at first glance it seems a bit IF and SB heavy early. Don't like Crawford at 11, I'll have to put him at around 30.

Any way man, thanks a lot for looking over the draft for me, very very helpful :D

Rudy, glad to see Francisco gets your OK. Grey had him in the 'Brain Freeze' category.

Francisco's in there because Wilson's breathing down his neck. The Brain Freeze category just means he's in danger of not getting that many saves.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

Getting a closer in the 18th round is solid even if the pitcher is in 'brain freeze'. Just read recently that CJ Wilson has some arm troubles....
