My Razzball ranking Draft

Postby malibogsters » Thu Mar 25, 2010 5:09 am

I love Razzball so much I went with Grey's top 300 ranking for my pre-ranking of players in the draft and stuck with it pretty well through except for an early reach for Beckham(5th rd, 68th) and Escobar(7th rd, 100th).

This is a 16 team, H2H, 4-keeper money league where my only keeper was Youkilis. Of the available players to fill the 4 keeper spots, razzball rankings had Mourneau, BJ Upton, Roberts, Pedroia, and then Lind before the cluster began of Ethier to Quentin. Morneau fell to me as did Lind and Ethier in the pre-draft for rounds 2-4 for me.

When Manny Ramirez fell to me at 93rd and Tori Hunter was still on the board at 125th, I made the decision to avoid the speed in my offense for the remaining spots and stick with guys batting in the top 4-5 spots. I stayed clear from drafting any Pitching until Price in the 10th round (164th) while everyone was gobbling up pitchers which I hate drafting early in a H2H league.

Waivers are only a $buck so Pitching is always gonna be there for the taking if I need to dig, but tell me what you think:

Our Scoring is: R, 1B, 2B, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS
C Geovany Soto (157th)
1B Justin Morneau (20th)
2B Dan Uggla (132nd)
3B Kevin Youkilis (Keeper)
SS Alcides Escobar (100th)
IF Gordon Beckham (68th)
LF Adam Lind (36th)
CF Torii Hunter (125th)
RF Andre Ethier (52nd)
OF Manny Ramirez (93rd)
UTIL Magglio Ordonez (221st)
Bnch Orlando Hudson (285th)
Bnch Coco Crisp (360th)

Pitching Staff for IP, K, QS, W, ERA, OBA, WHIP, SVHD

P Barry Zito (292nd)
P Trevor Cahill (317th)
SP David Price (164th)
SP Jorge De La Rosa (189th)
SP Johnny Cueto (228th)
RP Carlos Marmol (196th)
RP Leo Nunez (253rd)
RP Mike Gonzalez (260th)
RP Jose Mijares (349th)
Bnch Colby Lewis (324th)
Bnch Jesse Crain (378th)

So - How does it look? Injury-risks and potential breakouts or falls?

i like your bats a lot for a 16 team league seems like you are pretty solid everywhere...if you ask me though i think a few more solid arms would make the squad look better i know it's H2H but i wouldn't love price being my staff ace

I agree, however, having seen how the categories breakdown in a week H2H competition last season, IP and QS is all you can hope for in a starter.

And also 2 of my targeted sleepers are still available: Aroldis Chapman and Manny Parra.
