You're stockpiling on the wrong end IMO. Its much easier to build a good pitching staff from scratch, so you gain more of an advantage if you beef up your hitting lineup.

I dont know what your hitters look like, but im assuming pitching is your stronger side.

(last place guy hates me )

$$$$$$$$$$ league BTW
[ Edited by jrg on Jul 19, 2013 at 10:25 PM ]
"Winter Meetings" are underway so to say with the team in my post above. Need some advice from my fellow WZers. First off, here is how our league works. It is a point system. You get 10 points. You can keep as many players as possible, but that player takes up that rounds pick. 22 rounds. Rounds 1-3 are 6pts. Rounds 4-9 are 3pts. Everybody else drafted after or a FA are 1pt. This is a big $$$ league, so I'd appreciate any help.

Here was my final roster from last season. As you can tell, I built around pitching. Finished 3rd place due to pitchers missing starts and it killed me. Not to mention Ryan Braun. Ugh.



Here is where everyone was drafted:

OF - Ryan Braun (1st round/6pts)
OF - Michael Cuddyer (FA/1pt)
SS - Ian Desmond (7th round/3pts)
1B - Freddie Freeman (10th round/1pt)
OF - Desmond Jennings (8th round/3pts)
2B - Jason Kipnis (7th round/3pts)
3B - Evan Longoria (3rd round/6pts)
3B - Manny Machado (FA/1pt)...don't ask
C - Yadier Molina (9th round/3pts)
OF - Hunter Pence (13th round/1pt)
Util - Kyle Seager (FA/1pt)

SP - Yu Darvish (5th round/3pts)
SP - Jose Fernandez (FA/1pt)
RP - Ernesto Frieri (16th round/1pt)
SP - Matt Garza (FA/1pt)
SP - Matt Harvey (17th round/1pt)
SP - Felix Hernandez (2nd round/6pts)
SP - Clayton Kershaw (2nd round/6pts)
SP - John Lackey (FA/1pt)
SP - Matt Moore (8th round/3pts)
RP - Joe Nathan (12th round/1pt)
SP - Jake Peavy (12th round/1pt)
SP - Max Scherzer (7th round/3pts)
SP - Adam Wainwright (4th round/3pts)

Currently, this is what I'm thinking
SP - Jose Fernandez (1pt)
3B - Manny Machado (1pt)
SP - Max Scherzer (3pts)
1B - Freddie Freeman (1pt)
SP - Yu Darvish (3pts)
OF - Starling Marte (1pt)

Leaving me with 4 to spend. I'm trying to get either a 5th or 7th in a deal to either keep SP Davish or 2B Kipnis.

But as of now, I do not have a 3rd or 5th round pick. Also, players are only able to be kept for 1 year...so I couldn't keep Fernandez and Machado that cheap forever. I love this kind of league because it makes you weigh the value of how many points each player would cost vs. the round they were drafted in. For example..who is more valuable between Matt Moore and Adam Wainwright? Both are worth 3pts, but Moore would only take up my 8th rounder compared to Wainwright taking my 4th.

So currently, this is my draft.

$100 buy in. 10 team league. Keeper/Dynasty. Point system as I listed above.

I know my closers suck. I'll work on it. Thoughts other than that? I made sure to do my homework and grab Hawkins now that he was given the closer job over Brothers.

I'm fine w/ Sandoval at UTIL for now, but if Machado misses time, I can move Sandoval to 3B and Butler to UTIL.

Second $$$ league. $50 buy in. Stocked up on closers just for trade value. There wasn't many SP out there worth grabbing, and I felt content w/ my offense. I wish I would have known about Profar . Got Simmons a few rounds later.
