No prep for draft, honest appraisal please

Postby abax » Fri Apr 03, 2015 4:36 pm

I gave fantasy baseball two years ago and while I appreicate the ways in which it is less random than football I just think the season is way too long so I stopped after one season. Then my friend called me an hour before the draft desperate for a 12th player so I gave in. I had the 7th pick. I was able to import the first 100 razzball rankings but despite that I didn't get that feeling where some guy fell to me aside from some of my pitchers which I waited on way longer than most.

Our league has quality starts, extra base hits, and holds, I only remembered holds before the draft.

Also my first two picks seem to have ended up on Grey's 'move down the ranking' list and yahoo rated my team to come in last...

Wilson Ramos Was - C
Paul Goldschmidt Ari - 1B
Anthony Rendón Was - 2B,3B
Evan Longoria TB - 3B
Xander Bogaerts Bos - 3B,SS
Justin Upton SD - OF
Corey Dickerson Col - OF
Wil Myers SD - OF
Eric Hosmer KC - 1B -Util
Martín Prado Mia - 2B,3B,OF -bench
Steve Pearce Bal - 1B,OF -bench

Jake Arrieta ChC - SP
Hisashi Iwakuma Sea - SP
Jeff Samardzija CWS - SP
Mat Latos Mia - SP
Carlos Carrasco Cle - SP,RP
Mike Fiers Mil - SP
Andrew Miller NYY - RP
Addison Reed Ari - RP
Brett Cecil Tor - RP
Danny Farquhar Sea - RP

Thanks for taking a look. This site made my previous season worthwhile.
12 team H2H holds:

OF - Carlos Gonzalez, Justin Upton, Adrian Gonzalez
1B - Paul Goldschmidt
2B - Josh Rutledge

Well, this is the best team for someone who hadn't played in two years and had no prep! Very solid pitching and the hitting looks balanced, honestly, can't say too much bad about it...

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!
